Alpha Centauri from Doctor Who

I bring you Alpha Centauri that squeeky-voiced hermaphroditic hexapod alien delegate from Doctor Who.  This character appeared in the classic episodes Curse of Peladon and Monster of Peladon.

This miniature is from the Harlequin/Black Tree Design line of Doctor Who miniatures.  The sculpt of the arms/claws isn't very defined and they were kind of hard to paint, but otherwise I like it.  A fun little figure.

Alpha Cenaturi and the Doctor.  I need an Ice Warrior, Jo Grant, and maybe a miniature stand-in for Arcturus, right?

I also rebased and touched up some Heroclix minis that I might use for any number of different gaming purposes.

 A vintage grenadier miniature should be next up.  Stay tuned...

Hiro's Shadow Scout / Cyclops Heroclix Repaint Etc.

As I have mentioned before, I don't know the first thing about Yu-Gi-Oh, but I grabbed a handful of Yu-Gi-Oh Heroclix because I thought they were cool looking.  Here is one them: "Hiro's Shadow Scout." I re-based it, and used the factory paintjob as a base coat and repainted it from there.  I like how this weird little figure turned out.

Here's a stock photo to give an idea of what it looked like beforehand.  

I also re-based these three other heroclix minis: 2 Yu-Gi-Oh Kinetic Soldiers, and Remac, a DC Comics Heroclix.  The Kinectic Soldiers I slapped a couple of washes on and changed their "eye" color.  

  I figured all of the above would work well for Gamma World or Sci-Fi types of games.  Really, Hiro's Shadow Scout could be used in almost any genre or setting that includes weird creatures.
