1. What I would do

to make them look less plastic

I've done some ceramics painting using a dry brush method. It tends to leave minor flaws or streaks and uneven areas. Plus, there's no shine.

So what I would do to the figurines would be maybe stipple/dry brush them a bit with some light gray water based craft paints in selected spots... not all over.

Then see if I can find a clear, gloss-free protective spray paint to remove the shine.

You might want to try this on the bottom of the figurine to see how it would look before doing the entire thing.
