After a first thread where I showed some pictures on the 15mm miniatures we're using for our TNE campaign PCs, It's now the turn for some of our company NPCs.

Despite some twenty NPCs are currently crewing our Beowulf class starship, only five of them have been assigned a figure of their own so far --those most relevant, or who most intensely are interacting with PCs themselves, whatever the reason for.

Our crew NPC figures follow a painting schema consistent to that of our own PCs, logically. Here you have them dressed in body sleeves and/or aboard casual dress. Some small conversions have been done (head swapping, equipment completion or armament improvement), but none of them have altered substantially the original figure.

NPCs 1

NPCs 2

And now, dressed in vacc suits:

NPCs 3

NPCs 4

As commented in my previous thread, figures come from the ranges of Khurasan, Ground Zero games and Rebel minis mainly, besides of a solitary war reporter from Peter Pig. Please note that I've had to add some supplementary width to this later's base, so as to help masking its smaller size.

Thanks for reading,

Just out of curiosity, I thought the Beowulf was a much smaller ship, about twenty including low berth passengers.

Haven't played much, but that did stick out a bit for me.

Suit yourself, you don't have to follow canon as far as I'm concerned, nor should you require me saying, but I just wondered if you had a different source I'd missed.

The orange came out really well on the vacsuits

Yes you're right @TheBeast. I mistook the starship class. Actually it is a heavily modified, up-armed Petty class merchant.

Just out of curiosity, did you use the old GDW TNE/Twilight 2000 V2.2 rules for this campaign?

Occasionally, this threadomancy thing can be irritating, but I am grateful for the reminder to thank Lluis for the clarification.

Likewise the piccie along with the name; as most of my Travelling has been original, 'Fat' would have done. ;->=

Frankly, I've been apologizing for my spotty memory all my life, but with seventy in sight, and retirement shaking my world, it's just getting worse.

The Petty class Type R would have started with less crew, but a full load of weapons and the lower automation assumed in TNE could increase the crew that much.

How thick are those clear plastic bases? And their diameter?
