Just a Few WIP pictures for my Yuzzem crew.

Spent the night lopping off arms and heads and repositioning them creating whole new looks, leaving me with 2 new groups.

. Set 2, Trooper with rifle, a Hero with a plasma fist/club, and a heavy weapons trooper with missile launcher.

. 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.

New Alien Ship's crew

The Start of a new alien ship’s crew.
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.

Most of the alien weapons were made from GW bits and other part from my bit box.

The next set will have an Engineer/medic/ maybe a very heavy weapons trooper/ one carrying something? Who knows? Any suggestion would be appreciated
Thanks and I hope you like them.

3rd spacecraft (Zoot the bounty hunter)

Real name: Zoot Species: Cazeranian Call sign: Mr. Gray
“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

2nd of 4 ships I am working on for my space colony. An older model alien fighter bought on the cheap repaired and converted into another small colony transport ship. Able to transport small cargo and a small number of passengers and still fight is way out of any trouble.
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.

Messenger of the 42 messenger corps along with his messenger’s buggy.

Messenger of the 42 messenger corps along with his messenger’s buggy.

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 have been busy making a few space craft for my 15mm space colony and bounty hunters. The 1st of 4 so far is a small bounty hunter/cargo ship. It is made from a few bits and bobs from my bit box with that main body being made from a Star Wars toy droid. Pretty cool what can be made from what you have laying around. 15mm figure is from GZG.

Quar Royalist Expeditionary Scout Fan Sled.

This is another trash to treasure project that I did one afternoon while catching up on some DVR’ed TV shows.

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.

From the Frozen north of Sleveen comes a White Quar Royalist Expeditionary Scout Fan Sled.
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.

Quar Spiritual leader

A Quar spiritual leader walks out carrying the scared box of ashes Caerten Nad Jou who fell at the battle of Nor-e-Mac Valley. Resting on the purple velvet cushion is the wooden hand of Caerten Jou which was all that remained of the fallen hero. I made him out of brown stuff putty and a extra Quar head from my bit box.


I have finished painting my figure of Sarigar from the comic Alien Legion. I made him out of GW tau bits and brown stuff putty. I think it came out ok.

The Reaper Figures

I love reaper figure especially the Chronoscope range. They are great figure for painter and you have such a wide range to choose from, as seen here. For the most part they are fairly easy to clean up but they do suffer from lots of mold lines so you need to put some time into your prep work.

Agatha Fox

New Spy for KKBB is British agent Agatha Fox. I love this figure and Andrew Rae is fast becoming a one of my favorite sculptors. Loved his work and this figure is so simple, so cool, so deadly.

Female Space Smuggle

Next is my female space smuggler who had some very big hair and a slightly large head. When choosing a color scheme I was reminded of Chiana (sp) from Farscape so I went along that route with a bluish gray skin color I think it worked well.

Super Hero "The...?

here is the first of my super heroes, he came out nice but I had no idea of what color to paint him, I really liked the way he looked after I primed him black so I stuck to that and then added a green that I was using on another figure, "POW, BANG!! he was finished. It was only after I finished him that I noticed he looked the Green Lantern oh well as long as they don’t show up at the same party he should be ok.
I did a couple of more citizens for my western town of Hellish Wells. First up is a bartender who was done right out of the package and was an easy paint job.

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.

A few new 15mm done last night.
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.
