Painting guide

Space: the final frontier. Join us on our continuing mission to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilisations, and boldly paint where no brush has gone before as we spruce up the TNG models for the Trekkie RPG



Set brushes to paint and engage! Pioneering sci-fi for over 50 years, the latest expansion of the Star Trek universe is the recent Star Trek Adventures roleplaying game.

While a great addition to the toolkit for the game’s players, the miniatures released alongside the RPG also have a great appeal for collectors and fans of the shows and films. Both the crews from The Original Series and The Next Generation are available to add to your campaign, alongside sets of unnamed Romulans and Klingons.

The figures are cast in resin, giving a glorious crispness to the sculpts. Most importantly, the sculpts beautifully match the actors that played the parts, from Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard to Jonathan Frakes’ debonair Will Riker, and is instantly recognisable. Albeit with a few hiccups, given that one or two models lack definition in the facial features or have bubbles in their eyes, it’s the small details that really make the miniatures shine though; phasers, tricorders and uniforms match the era perfectly, going so far as to include small elements like rank braids on the sleeves.

This month, we’re going to take a look at how to paint all of the elements of The Next Generation crew.
