Tiny Trek

I'm slowly getting back into gaming and painting as summer wanes into autumn (sigh). I have some larger 54mm figures just about done as I await Tricorne's arrival in Canada.


In the meantime, I picked up a bunch of 3-D printed ST:TNG or DS9 ships this summer. These guys are listed as 1/7000 scale but I would think they are much smaller than that. This Enterprise-D is about 1 centimetre long (the washer it is based on is 20mm)


Above are some 20mm figures (painted by Tim in Saskatoon) for scale. Even getting a picture is a challenge--to say nothing is trying to figure out how to paint them! So far the Feds are getting a washer of grey, then some lighter grey to pick out plating details, and some some brighter colours on the nacelles. I see (below) that the white I used to navigation lights is too bright (maybe yellow?).


No rules set picked out yet. Maybe I'll try to write something where the operational unit is a squadron. This week is also our first club night at Red Claw (I'm pumped to actually game again!). And my copy of Vikings should be in the mail soon.

  1. Now those are teeny ships! Good job on painting something so small.

    For rules, you could try my "Final Frontier" rules, which I rustled up last year and got quite a goid reaction from players of Star Trek: Attack Wing. Best of all, they're free!

    1. Thanks. Very tricky to get the level of detail right on such small figures!
