I’ve been hoping for a long time that someone would take on the challenge of making some proper models/npcs of the Arachnids from Starship Troopers. Most attempts either die before they get off their feet (like most requests), or end up being ugly as sin and/or glitchy as hell.
The focus was on trying to extract the models from the 2005 video game developed by Strangelite Studios, models which could then be properly rigged, reskinned, etc. And thanks to our awesome friend nOVa (pronounced God) who has managed to succeed in starting to rip some of the models from the game we’re well on the way to having some real Arachnid models… and eventually some npcs.

As you can see a lot of these will probably need reskinning, some may need some touch-up modelling, and of course all of them will need proper rigging, animations, etc… but this is huge progress!
