25mm Star Trek and some clix

I continued to push more stalled projects off my painting bench this week. In the spring, I ordered some 25/28mm Romulans to match with some Klingons and Federation figures I had. Still looking for a fourth race with 12 figures--best bet is probably Gorn as there are a lot of lizards out there.

These are actually supposed to be ST:TMP Klingons (think black jump suits with gold vests) but I already had some ST:TNG Klingons and finding other races is tough. So I fell back on the old "paint job conversion" approach using some ST:TOS pictures I had (basically grey jump suits and silver vests).

Not great in the end but they will do. Below you can see some size comparisons. The Federation are old school 25mm while the Klingons and Romulans are more 28mm. Good enough for my purposes.

I've also been painting up some more Horrorclix figures. The sculpts on these are great, they just need some help with the paint!

I had three of these Creatures from the Black Lagoon. Left to right above is original, highlights, and highlights plus wash (so you see the whole process). Below is original versus finished (I will rebase to clear plastic discs later). The difference that 10 minutes of work makes is significant.

Up next: More Horrorclix and maybe a weekend game with Terry.

Nicely done. Remember, if you want Gorn for your games, the Space Vixen from Mars suppliers, where you got your TNG figure from, have two poses of TOS Gorn figures.

Thanks--looking forward to it.

Thanks. I was looking for a few more poses than they have. Nice figures, though!

Yeah I wish they had some more too.

Like you say, there may be some lizard like figures you could substitute from somewhere. Looking forward to see what you come up with! :)
