Warrior Arachnid - Starship Troopers

The spider-like Warrior Arachnids from the Starship Troopers film are perhaps the best analogue of the alien Xenomorph. They aren't as scary or grotesque, but they're equally vicious and deadly. Using four large limbs for locomotion, Arachnids have another two smaller "arms" free to use as stabbing weapons, not the mention their large, razor-share, beak-like mandibles. What really makes Arachnids really freighting is their mindless viciousness and massive numbers, which simply overwhelm conventional ground forces.
