If you search for Ordo Xenos you'll find plenty of posts about these. Why start a new one?

And there is already an Ordo Xenos list, see Forge World's Imperial Armour Volume 4 - it's the Elysian D-99 which is an OX list and the campaign rules include the ability to take an OX Magos and his retinue.

Also search for Deathwatch - these are the Ordo Militant of the Ordo Xenos, being marines drawn from many chapters who are trained specifically in dealing with aliens.

Mine is Codex: SM played with Sterngaurd (they have 90 percent of the rules the old killteam used to get) with squad sargeants, veterans and up with the special Deathwatch shoulderpad. Why not give it to everyone? because they're hugely expensive and I'd prefer more models :) .

GW originally intended to have three =I= codices, but for some reason they changed their minds and didn't write Alien Hunters.

Disregarding the fact that this has been argued to death and back...

Considering that the Deamon Hunters and the Hereticus elements of the Whitch Hunters codexes are practically the dictionary definition of 'fail' when it comes to list design and balance, I don't think that a stand alone Alien Hunters makes a great deal of sense (especially considering all of the lists which are in desperate need of an update as it is).

Updated Deathwatch rules would pretty much suffice (see that Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor? He's an Ordo Xenos Inquisitor he is).
