Those greys look a really good call for the OP's requirements given the warrior and civilian poses.

The CP greys are great, I am intending to use them as one of the races (as slaves actually) in the setting. I really want these ones to be more advanced.

1000foot, I've got a project in planning set in a system where an Imperial force is looking to bring stability (including freeing the slaves referenced above). The figures I am looking for will represent an indigenous population split between supporters and rebels.

Looking for this principally to be skirmish level so lots of civvies are desired.

BTW I can't see your photos, please repost.

Just a heads up, the Greys are as small as they are beautiful... I have a bucket load of them and think they are the best Greys on the market :) ... here's a scale pic with both 28mm and 15mm versions:



If you need smaller ones, Khurasan Miniatures sell 15mm versions, by the same sculptor:

Fixed my photos. It doesn't sound like this is what you are looking for, but thought I'd throw these out there just in case.


I've worked on a few 3D sculpts as a goof. Same species, one is armed one isn't. I don't suppose something like this would fit the bill would it?

After quite a lot of toing and froing I finally nailed down parts for two races.

Introducing evil alien overlord types. A simple head swap with Delaque (GW Necromunda) bodies and starwars heads from Shapeways. The Delaque kit has a lot of potential, I have plans for it for some Kroot civilians and various other oddities.
 

Secondly, alien humble slaves. I wanted these to be much shorter than 28mm and used Anvil Industries bodies with more starwars heads. Some of the Anvil proportions are off (hose hands!) but they are aliens after all.
