I am looking for input on what paints best match the colors of the TOS and TNG crew uniforms. Does Anyone have a list? I need to paint up the first 4 mini boxed sets from Modiphius for my brother and want to be as screen accurate as possible.

Thank you,

And black.

Gold and blue too.

Really, I'd just pull up a paint chart of your favorite manufacturer, and then match it to online images of your favorite crews. You can either print them out on paper, or just match side by side on your computer monitor.

I figured with the figures being out for over a year there would be a paint guide or two with colors matched to the on screen props. you know how detailed trekkers can be. I think the TNG reds are a shade closer to maroon thought, and the TOS reds are a brighter red.

Not a guide for miniatures, but this might help:

Hi Mike.

If you like the way my Trek miniatures came out, I detailed my paint recipes for them on my blog (You can see the miniatures there, too).

TOS crew:

TNG crew:

and some Romulans:

Hope this helps.
