Separate rule that may need tidying up/changing is should the aliens be able to move faster than current stats or should the aliens be able to move into b2b+still be able to swing?

My suggestion would be to give the Aliens a special extended action that combines the "run" action with a single attack in HTH (regardless of the number of attacks on their weapon's profile).
That way they can move two tiles and still engage but it wouldn't be too powerful. Especially with the bigger critters.

- In the rules it stands that Acid does friendly fire to other Aliens. That is completely illogical. All Aliens have the same metabolism and are immune to the Acid blood of their own kind.

- Acid blood doesn't happen often enough. If an Alien model gets killed only on a 1-5 its acid blood gets spilled. It should be happening more often (1-10) and if the Alien model had been killed by a messy weapon (Grenade launcher, Smartgun, Grenade, Sentrygun, SmartDisc, Combistick, etc.) the Acid spill should happen automatically without any dice rolling. The Alien literally explodes or gets cut to pieces in the first place.

Definitely agree on both points. Acid blood should happen on a 1-10 and Aliens should be immune to other Aliens' blood.

- The Alien Climbing Claws are not very useful. You can only use them if a tile is full with your own models. It should be allowed for the Alien player to use them on any tile regardless of the occupying models.

Being able to run past opposing models without any kind of risk may be too easy. Maybe we could add " can run past tiles that are fully occupied by Alien faction models and on a successful CC roll, the model may pass over tiles occupied by opposing models, otherwise it ends up dragged down and is engaged in hand to hand". That would make it similar to disengaging from combat.

I like the idea of giving the aliens an attack after running. I have not played with any but the base set though.
