15mm Starfleet Uniforms

Captain's Blog Stardate 201303.22
I decided to paint up a few Astro Crew figures in different Starfleet uniforms due to a conversation on TMP
These are the tools I used to convert these minis from the Astro Crew.  The scissors were used to cut a small strip from the fingernail file.

These are the paints I used.  As you can see they are craft paints.  I used a watered down wash of GW's Devlan Mud on the tan sections of each mini to give it more definition.

To convert the TWOK figure, I sanded down the V neck on the original figure. I left the bottom of the shirt to leave a guide for the belt. I painted the bottom part of the shirt gloss black and painted a red section under the shirt to give the apperance of a longer tunic.

To convert the TNG figure, I sanded down the V neck to blend in with the shirt and the bottom part of the shirt to blend in with the pants.

To convert the DS9 figure, I sanded down the V neck to blend in with the shirt and the bottom part of the shirt to blend in with the pants.  For the phaser, I used the fingernail clippers to cut the pistol down and then sanded it down to the appropirate shape.

Here are some comparison pics of other minis that I decided to show due to this thread on TMP.

These are Battlestations figures.  They are a little on the pricey side, but that is because they are character figures.  The only problem I have with them is the base size (too big in my opinion).  The third mini from the left is an Astro Explorer.
