New Wallpaper and MERCS Merchandise!

One of the best things about the MERCS online community is that the creators, Keith and Brian, have a high level of involvement through the forums.

Keith responded to a thread today, saying that they plan on releasing a fan-kit with lots of MERCS artwork that the community can use! Any more updates will be posted on the MERCS Download page. That's great news, and I'll be sure to pimp this blog with the official MERCS artwork. Keith has sated the thirst with an awesome wallpaper though, which I am proudly rockin right now:

I've been hanging out for any news on MERCS maps, counters and dice - yesterday Brian gave us an update on the situation, and to summarise:
  • Battle Foam will produce the MERCS bag - this is still in development
  • Gale Force 9 will produce counters, 2D maps, and 2D maps which can be used as a foundation for 3D terrain maps. The counters are being polished off, and the maps are being tweaked.
  • No news on dice - I've posted a query on forums so I'll update this blog with any news.
So, my personal thanks to Brian and Keith for being part of the MERCS community and responding to the cravings of their die-hard fan-boys!

Sync out.
