FCC House 4 - Assembled Part 2

These FCC House 4 models look bad ass! All of them have a really rugged aesthetic aligned with the FCC background, and the sculpts themselves are great too.

The Sapper, with his Crowd Control Variable Chamber Shotgun, looks like a strong option on the tabletop, with it's variable ammunition giving the unit a range of utility.

And the Heavy's Maelstrom Gatling Gun just looks wicked - I still prefer the CCC Heavy, but this weapon is certainly a contender!

ISS - Assembled Part 2

The Calypso is my favorite sculpt from the ISS, so I'm glad to be able to add her to my MERCS 2.0 collection!

The Demo and Monkeywrench are welcome additions to the ISS roster, and I've got to say I'm pretty keen on getting this faction painted up.

Texico - Assembled Part 2

I'm going to stop going on about how the models I received in my All Your MERCS Are Belong To Us addon are significantly better quality - at this point I'm happy to say that they are consistently a higher standard - but I'll make sure to point out if they aren't.

I'll have to reset the Eagle's footing, as he is on an awkward lean, but that's a pretty simple process once you know how.

The Breacher is an interesting addition to the Texico line up, and I'm keen to see how he looks with some paint!

sefadu - Assembled Part 2

Another round of clean sculpts! There is flash on the models, but it is minimal, and on these models particularly, it was the thin type of flash that flaked off as soon as I looked at it sternly.

I'm not sure how I feel about the Heavy model yet... the tail, used to anchor the troop in place while firing the heavy weapon, looks a little awkward to me.

And the Shock Trooper, like the Berserker and his Twin Blades, is another sefadu model bringing a knife to a gun fight! Though his Ashanti Sword is significantly bigger than your average knife...

FCC House 9 - Assembled Part 2

It was great to finally round off the FCC House 9, which hold a special place in my heart as one of the original four factions released for MERCS.

The Liaison sculpt wasn't as clean at the Shock Trooper and Pack Rat models (which were very good quality), and had a lot of difficult flash around the rubble under the model's left leg.

Still, in my opinion, the models received in this shipment are still a huge improvement on what I received previously. I sincerely hope, for the good of MERCS, that the model quality distributed at retail is this high quality.

USCR - Assembled Part 2

And here are the last three models for the USCR! The quality of sculpts was, again, much better than the models that I assembled in the previous MERCS: Recon shipments - hopefully this level of quality is distributed at retail.

I also received the original sculpt Behemoth, but didn't assemble it, seeing as I have the awesome Kickstarter Exclusive Behemoth!

Assassination Protocol Reinforcements - Assembled Part 2

Continuing with assembly of my All Your MERCS Are Belong To Us, here are the final models from the factions in the MERCS: Recon Assassination Protocol box - KemVar and Keizai Waza!

So far the quality on these models is noticeably better than what I experienced with previous shipments, which has been a nice surprise!

Counter Threat Reinforcements - Assembled Part 2

Sync is back, and I'm in the process of assembling the contents of my All Your MERCS Are Belong To Us package - starting with the CCC and EU Inc.

My goal is to assemble the remaining miniatures from one faction per night, with the exception of CCC, EU Inc, KemVar and Keizai Waza - they only have 2 more models to assemble to round off these factions.
I'll try to find time each day to post all my WIP photos as well!

So, without further ado, here are the last of the CCC and EU Inc models!
