Last weekend we had a session where 5 of us got together and played a couple of MERCS:Recon games. They were fun and we won one and lost one as a group. Not. As really. We used another member of the groups toys – his are somewhat nicer painted than mine but heck I can’t complain too much as I don’t think mine are badly painted. It’s purely a matter of skill and taste in models and colours after all.So here are 9 extra models for the Security level 3 of the game. These are all in greens as they are the same models which are in the base game. I already have a number of them painted in a blue theme so green gives extra options. That also allows these to be seen/function as a different group if I want them to be in non Recon games. You can see the details of the figures in the larger single shot. Overall, I’m happy with how these guys came out. They look the part of a paramilitary force. They are a security team which could be called out by a corporation – thus they fit their role perfectly.
I was a little undecided whether they should have shiny and new outfits or a little more worn ones. I decided that although security they likely would not get the resources that the full Mercs would. After all these are the escalation staff not the ones normally on display as good looking guards. So more drab and workman like is how I did them.
Also being a little more battered means they will have a more suitable look if used in games for Super heroes and Pulp games.
