Terrain Playmats and Card Terrain

Checking the Megacon Games Download page, I found a new Terrain Playmat and Card Terrain PDF available for free download.

The Card Terrain was given in the factions decks for MERCS 1.0, and allowed you to quickly throw down some nice looking 2D terrain.
The PDF contains 15 pieces of card terrain, which represent various elements of scatter terrain you would find on the tabletop.

The Terrain Playmats look fantastic, and are designed to be printed out and used as a base for creating your MERCS game tables - and whether you use 2D or 3D terrain, they look fantastic.

Middle East Terrain

Snow Terrain

Rural Terrain

[KemVar] Demo

And this rounds off my first completed MERCS 2.0 faction - KemVar! The Demo is another great model that made it to MERCS 2.0 from the first edition, and like the Booster, has a healthy mane of hair exposed to make him stand out from the rest of the faction.

This week I've started work on my remaining Keizai Waza models, which I'll photograph over the weekend and post up next week - stay tuned!

[KemVar] Booster

It's been 3 months since I've managed to paint any MERCS models, so here is the KemVar Booster to end the drought!

Pretty standard pose, but the exposed mane of hair makes him stand out from the rest of the KemVar faction.

MERCS Recon Kickstarter - Replacement MERCS

While assembling all my MERCS, I had issues with two MERCS models:

I followed the standard process for missing/replacement pieces outlined for the MERCS Recon Kickstarter, and today I received the following two replacement models in the mail!

Now I feel like my MERCS collection is really complete, and I don't have any more excuses not to get these factions painted and ready for the tabletop.

GCC - Assembled Part 2

Another hobby blackout due to some ongoing family health issues - but here are the last miniatures that arrived as part of my All Your MERCS Are Belong To Us addon!

I think I actually prefer this Judge model over the variant Judge model,which was an exclusive MERCS Recon Kickstarter bonus, so it'll be hard for me to decide which one to paint.

The Heavy is pretty cool as well, with his Blitzkrieg Twin Assault System not being the standard 'heavy' weapons seen across the other factions.

Booster / Heavy / Spy / Judge

So I now have every MERCS model for every MERCS faction assembled, and ready for paint!
I plan on finishing the factions I received in MERCS Recon first (CCC, EU Inc, KemVar and Keizai Waza) before moving onto another new faction.

Some Love from Megacon Games!

It was a very pleasant surprise to find this post on my Newsfeed this morning! 
I feel very honored to have my little blog mentioned on the Megacon Games Facebook page :)

If you're here visiting because of this post, WELCOME, and I hope my little MERCS hobby blog doesn't disappoint.

EIC - Assembled Part 2

I missed my hobby time over the past few nights busy with other things, but I was finally able to finish off my EIC last night!

It was great to receive the Assimilator, the cornerstone of the EIC faction. His abilites allow him to assimilate technology from killed members of the opposing faction, which is an ability I'll need to look into in much further detail.

The Heavy's Andhi Assault Cannon is another contender for the Most Bad Ass Heavy Weapon too...
