Review - Alien D build #2 miniature creature for the Aliens board game from Gale Force Nine

The Alien side has black miniatures that come in 4 identical sprues (GF9 Aliens - Alien Warriors sprue). Every miniature is multi-part, requiring assembly.

There is some flash on the models, but nothing serious.

The bases included in the game are 25mm round bases. They are scenic bases, depicting the floor of the Hadley's Hope station. There's a hole on them to insert the peg on the leg of the miniature. This way you can easily put the models on their bases, but you are free to rebase them in any way. As I prefer to base my models on transparent bases, especially for board games, I welcome this approach.

For the alien warriors, there are 4 different body types (A-D), that come in two pieces. Each body type has 2 head options (#1: with jaw closed, #2: with jaw open, for A, C, D body, the inner jaw is visible). The heads come with part of their spine. Every tail and every arm is interchangable among the bodies. It looks like there are 2 tail variants (#1: longer, #2: S-shaped), and you get two pieces of each. The arms look either identical or very similar to each other. The arms do not have any connectors. When you build your models on a sprue, you'll still have 4 extra heads with spines you can use as trophies.
