First alien in the squad. I've yet to work on background, I was planning on piecing a few things together when I get together with my gaming buddy. The idea behind this guy was that it's pretty much an "Invasion of the Body-Snatchers"-type alien - they're a race of mollusc-like parasites, they take over various life-forms on their own planets and have trade agreements with other alien races to provide specialised cloned bodies for them. The alien lives in the "head", the body is the clone.
Happy with the way this guy has turned out - he was one of the cheap Star Wars pre-paints, with a couple of GW pieces. More crew members to arrive soon!
