Forganox13 suggested that there should be a new venator type in another thread.

On reading that, I came up with the following idea: It would be neat if we could have different variations of all the different mob types.

From a lore perspective, it would make sense that there are different types of the same species, with different societal roles.

From a combat perspective, players would understand the basic species types right off the bat, but would have to adapt slightly when dealing with the alternative enemy types. It would give a bit more variety to the game.

From a mission perspective, different missions would be able to have one or two alien species types and would still be just as diverse in the typesof enemies as they are right now. This would allow different missions to feel more unique.

Colour variations that indicate roles such as:
    point man
    wing man
    flanker
    scout
    rally caller
    lone wolf
    coward (gang up or flee)
Type + role = variable individual
if you can read this your to close

Nahhhhh! Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact or MRSI (Mercy) which allows one unit to Fire Multiple Rounds at Different Arcs and Velocities in order to Get Simultaneous Impact from that single unit... 2-3 Rounds from one King should be fun :twisted:

A neat MRSI Mission (Mercy Fire Mission cause your gonna need mercy :D ) Wiki Chart showing it...

It would be a neat boss fight, but as for spawning generally in the natural world I was thinking something along the lines of a Laxitar underling.

It would be smaller, with less health, but would have a faster fire rate. The damage would be much less but the mortar style attack would be similar to that of a Laxitar's. It would also have a slightly higher spawn rate and would sometimes be found in pairs or groups of three.
