I've been grinding away on some reinforcements for my 54mm AWI Brits and I finally finished these 12 guys. Big figures take forever! There is both a lot to paint and any mistake shows very clearly.

54mm AWI Loyalists
Saturday, November 20, 2021
I crazy glued the hip joints and arms so they wouldn't move. Then I did a bit of brush work and a wash. The lot also came with some Targs (Klingon dogs?). I did some highlights and then washed them. Meh.

ST:TOS crew additions
So I was cruising fleabay and ran across some older Trek toys that are roughly 25mm. These shuttles and crew are from the old Star Trek Innerspace line. You'd get a ship (scaled to the packaging) and two crew. This shuttle came with a Scotty and Kirk and the lot had four shuttles.

ST: Voyager crew update
I picked up some more ST:TNG monopoly tokens so I went back to fill in my ST:VGR crew. I now have all of the major characters except Nelix. My efforts to convert a figure to Nelix were not great so I gave up on that for now.
First, I went back to some figures I'd finished a few months back and re-carved Tom Paris' face (much better). I also added some more definition to Captain Janeway. These were originally Geordi LaForge and Deanna Troy figures.
From the new batch, I converted Picard into the Doctor by adding a medipad. For Seven of Nine, I converted a Tasha Yar figure. I spent a lot of time carefully cutting free her phaser hand from her thigh to reposition it. I must have cracked her neck doing so because, just as I finished painting, her head popped off.
I caught it mid-air (which was amazing!) but somehow managed to drag my hand through white glue and red paint as I did so, covering her head and my shirt in red glue. I managed to wash everything up and, with some swearing, got her head back on. I see the Borg implants on her face got missed in the excitement. I will go back and add them in.
