The Xenomorph (which translates to "strange form" from Greek) or the "Alien", is an extraterrestrial endoparasitoid species with multiple life cycles, possibly originating from the planet Proteus (also known as "Xenomorph Prime"). One of the deadliest of all known alien species, these creatures require a host organism in order to reproduce. The appearance of the Xenomorph can vary depending on the host in which the Facehugger implants. The human phenotype is generally around 7–8 feet and roughly 136.0 to 181.4 kilograms in weight, with a long, muscular tail and large, curved, oblong head. The Queen of this species is generally twice as large (although some Queens have shown to grow even larger, some surpassing 100 feet tall if given time) and possess superior speed, strength and intelligence than their offspring.
By far my favourite and earliest memories are watching the film Alien, way before I should of and seeing this horrific alien torment a crew. It has stuck with me ever since and leads me on a path to Games Workshop via Genestealers which ultimately lead me to the Aeldari and Iyanden. You just can't help to fear the darkness and something that reacts based purely on animal instinct.

Expect lots of reviews on this topic in the future.
