I saw this too.  I'm not too keen on the minis though.  They're characters from the various series.  What I'd like in a mini would be a more generic officers so I can play my character, not paramount's.

yeah, I'm hoping there's a 2nd wave of minis coming with generic starfleet, cardassians, breen, and a bunch of other minor aliens.

 

oh and borg! it is a bit weird that the borg box has no borg.

Man I loved FASA Trek. One of my favorite versions, warts and all. Still have the core set and a couple supplements, as well as the Ship Combat simulator. I keep looking on Ebay thinking about fleshing out the collection...

I loved the way the PCs ran the ship as a team - but the Engineer was always the one in the real worry seat. ::): (There were times when I was tempted to say things like 'Sorry Captain, I canna give you the power for the phasors! Every thing is going to *Rolls randomly* Shields! Wheee!'

 

But my favorite character was a starship captain based on Jack Nicholson.

Not getting the cube either, but definitely looking at the core rules and DEFINITELY looking at the minis! Probably going to buy over a couple months for the first release. It's gonna be expensive few months!

I was interested in this but the price point for the PDF or the book is just too rich for my blood.

This is the same company that is putting out the FallOut miniatures game later this year and I have the same concern about that.

I admit I'm a bit curious to see if that price drops. Two different companies have bombed badly with the Star Trek RPG license in recent years. I'd like to see someone do well with it, but they sure seem to be launching a hell of a lot all at once.

Silly question, but does anyone know of minis that could be used as decent bridge crew for between the end of the movies and start of TNG?

 

we have a set of the "away team" minis, but they kind of have the wrong mix of aliens for my party (and keep breaking if we look at them funny)

Hmm, post-movie? So no mini skirts on females? That rules out Matakishi or the old Mega Miniatures bridge crew (which is mia anyways; I thought it went to Armorcast, but can't find it on their site). If you want to go totally overboard with the mini skirts, of course, you could try Space Vixens from Mars (who also have some really nice not-Klingons, among other things, but not 'civilized' Federation staff afaik).

 

I think Victory Force has a range that's stylistically kind of between TOS and TNG, but never ever seen any of their figs live.

So, super late to the party here, but if anyone wants to get an idea of how the game plays, check out Geek and Sundry's live play show Shield of Tomorrow which used this ruleset, it's pretty great.

      So finally got around to taking my pictures of my minis from Gencon. I took a bronze for Rumscratch.


       
      I was fairly happy with his little beach there, even if the water doesn't show well on camera.



      My elf sailor was also entered, but not judged, since they only judge one of your entries per catagory.





      He doesn't look very friendly. He was supposed to though.
       
      I did a Wyrd miniatures speed paint of the Immolated Rhino.

      I didn't know anything about this guy other than it was a rhino. Didn't even know the name until just now, so I made it pink. I made it very very pink.
      wish I could have come up with something to do with the cracks in his skin. I just kind of ignored them.

      this guy is a deep cuts guard. I did him up in a color theory class.

      I don't think he turned out too bad considering the size of the brush I used on him.

      I'll probably touch him up eventually.
      Questions, comments, concerns?
      I also took a miniature photography class and as side effect, learned what a few of the icons on my phones camera do.

      So, It is that time of year again! When the winds of flatulence waft the delecate aromas of nerdfunk into ones nostrils! The Convention season is here! And I won't be going to one! At least not a big one. So no GenCon for me :( But I'm still supporting the DDM Guild events there! So, I'm sharing my WiP pictures here.
       

       

       
      The "Thundercorn" as I am calling it, is nearly done. just a bit of touch ups and the base to go.
       

       

       
      The Pit Fiend just has the base coats on at this time.
       

       

       

       

       
      The White Wyrmling has the second layer of shading started.
       

       

       
      This is a Scaladar. I think it is supposed to be a robot scorpion that shoots lightning. I have a rather ambitious plan for it though. It has a bunch of cracks in its armor and joints. I'm painting those cracks to look like it has bright crackling lightning inside it! Then I plan to paint the armor a bronze or brass.

      My crew of five drew an earliest hotel registration time of 2:00 this afternoon, which wasn't enough to score a room in a connected hotel.  It looks like we'll be out by the airport again this year, so that will place a premium on traveling light, and shopping responsibly. 
       
      Next task, decide whether we're driving, and how to configure two different miniature war-games for air travel.  Perhaps this is the year when Fat Dragon fold-flat buildings will cover the table...
