So, I'm looking for good minis to use with Tagon's Toughs.

Regular duty uniforms (which are space-rated and will stop small-arms fire):

As a side effect, the Toughs' standard uniforms are a tight-fitting coverall like Trek, so if anyone has picked up the slack from Astro Miniatures, that would be great for more than just me.

I've sculpted a Schlock (in motion, since that looks a lot cooler than a mobile pile of poo), and I've found a nice set of Space Elephants to use for the Neophants (Blasted Planet's Pachydon).

Tough's heavy armor, for when you need to worry about people deploying antimatter or plasma cannons:

What does the TMP hive-mind suggest, particularly for the light-armor troopers?

When in doubt check khurasan miniatures out!

Khurasan or ground zero games probably have something that may come close.

Khurasan definitely has a lot I can use (particularly the aliens!), but I think the real challenge is the 'unarmored' troopers like from the first picture.

Maybe GZG Colonists? *headscratch*

After perusing the higher-end sculptors, it looks like my best bet for the light armor/basic uniform (which is still powered armor!) is Clear Horizon's HADES troops with headswaps, though I'm still going to get a pile of GZG Colonists.

I can use a spare Quar officer to make Ebby the Unioc, and Khurasan's Jasmine Throne Foreign Battalions will make good filler for the rest of the random aliens. I will get a full set of the Blasted Planets Pachydon, even though I don't think there are more than 2 neophants in Tagon's Toughs.

The rest of Khurasan's and GZG's alien ranges will make good opposition forces, since Humanity and the Toughs seem to be the only multi-species forces.

I've been looking for you these last couple of days, but I'm sorry to say I keep hitting dead ends.

But right now I don't even know if my Astros Minis made it through the flood.

PS. I had never seen that strip before.

Thank you very much, CC, but there's no great rush on things.

It's a shame that Astro Minis didn't sell his molds off when he got out of the business.
