The Heavy weapons crew with new fur and hands sculpted.
And the salvage team

. Set 3 a mechanic with a giant Wrench, a Salvager worker carrying a pipe, and one twisting to the side.
Later I need to do some gap filling, adding some hands and re sculpting new fur. onward and upward.

I started with the Wiz Kid Star Wars figure of a Yuzzem, bear like race and a pretty cool figure as is.
This is the finished figure after a repaint.
I did the first one without any additions to see how it would paint up (being the plastic bendy stuff they make them out of). I had repainted one clix figure before(see my kid zombie hunters) and I like how it turned out so I thought I would try again. He turned out ok if I don’t say so myself so I bought some more to do a Crew (well I bought like 20 of them) and at less than a dollar a piece how can you go wrong.
Now for the crew I did not want all the same look so I reworked the first set of five, cutting off arms and repositioning them added new weapons, scars, closing the mouths, just to add some variations. The Clixy figures are pretty soft and cut easily so that was not a problem. I then filled in some gaps with putty, re-sculpted some fur and there you have it 5 different (well different enough) figures. On the next set I will try the reposition a few heads and leg, we will see how that turns out.

“I had Flown into Mudd Eisley today in search of my lousy, stinking, brother in law who ran off with my share of the take for the last job, and when I find him this plasma fist is going right up his…well you get the idea” “Trust no one they will only stab you in the back, especially family they will stab you in the front”
(originaly written for the Dropship Horizon name the alien contest)
The figure is from Critical Mass Games mercenaries set
The ship is made once again out of old part from my bit boxes. The cockpit is part of a Tie fighter from the Starwars clix toys, the main body is an old Brut cologne bottle with the engine made from a GW paint bottle cap(as you can see) other bits added from old model kits

This ship started out as a toy Battle Star Galactica Cylon raider, I added a bottom level along with a transport pod out of plastic card. For fun I added the cockpit and interior.

The 42nd messenger corps are well known for their daring in getting messages through and fast mostly due the diligent training of the members and their well trained Pyk pyks. But along with Pyk Pyks, the messenger corp. is fond of the Chwyrlia Fen, one Quar buggy. The Fen as it is often called is made mostly of engine and holds 1 Quar relatively uncomfortably, however what it gives up in comfort it gains in speed and ruggedness.

I took a box of bits and parts and pick a hand full out saying “ok what can I make with these?” A small propeller, a part from a smoke detector, some toy parts, a plastic mortar carriage and some scrape plastic sheets as well as a bit of imagination. The two Quar are made out of some brown stuff putty, two old toy bodies sculpted a bit more Quar shaped and spare Quar heads.
Not to bad for an afternoon.
The Fan sleds of the White Quar Royalist keep track and harass the invading Crusaders at ever turn. Fast and agile the fan sleds skim over the snow and ice of the northern region reporting back on the locations and movement of the enemy, Packs of sled mount fast attack on Crusader outpost and convoys.
Though the fan sled itself is not armed it is Manned (or Quared) by two ryflers Wrapped in heavy winter uniforms and Fur hats. The driver and gunner are eached armed with a herlech ryfels and a Cryfen LMG, when in packs (usually four sleds) one will be armed with a Meakyna heavy MG. The sleds carry enough supply’s stored behind the seat and extras mounted on the sides to last a week.

The second is my Undertaker who started out as an Uncle Sam figure. I removed the stars from the hat band and added a few ribbons down the back of it, other than that a simple black paint job and done.

1st GZG gray aliens and ship, The grays paint up quick seeing that there is little detail (what you would expect for a grey) and the saucer is a toy that a friend gave me which I have repainted.
Next are the Crusties very District 9 looking with cool alien guns, sorry my photos don’t do them justice they are actually really nice. I used a few shades of brown and added some yellow and red spots and stripes. I went with bright colors of sliver and copper for the weapons as they did in the movie. These were some of the feebies that I got from my Christmas order with GZG I see a few more in my future :)
Lastly is an off world explorer (or this world if you want) this is a match box car that I have repainted. I think it came out pretty good if I don’t say so myself. The vehicle came in a box of 5 for $5 but I was only able to use this one from the pack but my 3year old great niece sure did like the rest, an excellent bargain all around. Next time I need to take a before picture.
As usual with the GZG figures they are fun and quick to paint but I still have a bunch to do so back to work.
