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.

For a few minor modifications, they look very effective...a nice bunch of crew there :).

Are you making a ship to go with them?
