Hi!

Although I know that this particular game IS NOT for those that are in a budget, I can not withstand the idea of buying $300+ in miniatures from Star Trek Tactics just to form a Borg faction.

Do you guys have any idea of what to use and buy regarding this, while keeping it to a budget?

Links ae welcome!

Bruno

Wait a few months and buy the Star Trek Attack Wing minis that are coming out starting in April 2014? If you're looking for something you can do today, I'd just go with cards and some generic tokens to represent the ships. It won't look anywhere near as nice, but it's something.

Buy wooden cubes. Spraypaint them black. Use a silver gel-pen to scribble a bunch of lines on each face. Done.

Put them on the base when playing.

Use different sizes to represent different ships, and use a wooden sphere for a borg sphere.


When it comes to proxies the Borg are the most boring and the most simple race to model.

I was looking at prices and found them a bit expensive, specially the edition with ramdom miniatures (a tactical cube for $50??????).

I found Miniature Market with better shipping prices (coolstuff charged me $50 for 1 miniature!
