Got my Wave 1 of MERCS: Recon last week.  Wave 1 consists of the two versions of the game: Counter Threat, which has the CCC and EU as the MERCS, and Assassination Protocol, which has the KemVar and K

Well, it took two more days to finish the SecFor IV.  Not because of the flash, but because they really done want to keep the gun arm's shoulder in its socket. I noticed yesterday that the first guy'

Had a massage just before lunch will hopefully loosen up my poor neck so I can paint more comfortably.

In the mean time I assembled a couple more snipers.




GCC Sniper. The GCC (Global Corporate Court) isn't a MegaCon as such, but a legal authority. "They are they Law"....

(if that sounds familiar its because I had the EIC Sniper misidentified as GCC.  I've fixed that now...)


This is the first figure I've found with an actual casting problem (not just flash).  Its left knee is...missing.



I'll send them an email and see if they want to replace that.  Otherwise I can likely do something with some green stuff.






House 4 Sniper.   The FCC (Free Corporate Control) are a coalition of "Houses" from the Lost Margins (those parts of the earth that no corporation considers it cost effective to control).  House 4 is the faction from the are that was formerly the Northwest US and SW Canada.   They specialize in acquiring and then ransoming other MegaCons' assets.

I really need to get back to painting at lunch, but at least I felt like doing some assembly today.




The ISS (Ios Security Systems) are the world leaders in navel technology and logistics.  Because they control the oceans pretty much every other MegaCon has some sort of agreement with them.





sefadu (yep, all lowercase, pronounced zva doo apparently) was a MegaCon in Central Africa that was a leader in laser tech. But, during Operation: Paradigm Shift, they were overthrown by the FCC and are now operating as a rogue MERCS group targeting (and targeted by) both the FCC and other MegaCons.





EU Inc. I left the 4 starter factions until last, as I've seen other figs in the factions before.



Got 3 done today, that's pretty good for an hour.  Just three more snipers to go to get the whole batch assembled.

Yeah...painted.  That's going to take some time....


Did some more assembly today.  I took my paint kit home yesterday as I need to redistribute some paints for my upcoming projects.





Keizai Waza sniper.  He's got kind of a Doctor Doom vibe going on.

So while I'm trying to get these all assembled and just painting around the problematic guns and such that get in the way, there was no way I was gluing on his head/cloak before painting....




CCC sniper.  The sure do like their big guns...I'll try to straighten that with hot water later.




Kem-Var sniper.  Really like this sculpt!



That's all the snipers.  I'll either get painting on something next, or bring in so new figs to assemble...

Paint sorting and deciding what I'm painting where is still on-going, so I grabbed another pile of baggies of MERCS: Recon stuff and brought it in.




Quite an assortment.  A lot of this is stretch goals and add-ons.  Some is for both MERCS:Recon and Myth; you can see the lighter grey pieces.


Decided to start on a bag just labeled "Stretch".




Looks to be 8 figs I guess.  Let's see what's in there.




Turns out there was a 30mm base hiding under the 40mm, so 9 figures.  An interesting assortment.  Yes, that's a giant dog with some sort of blasters on it....

I, of course, went straight for the big stompy guy in a number of pieces.




This is the USCR Behemoth.  He's like a Heavy, only Heavier!!  In the game he fills an entire area and automatically damages it if un-damaged, just by standing there.  And that's before he fires the guns....

I'm glad I held off on sticking him to the 50mm base provided for MERCS:Recon.  I guess for MERCS 2.0 (the more traditional tabletop minis game that uses the same figs) he needs to be on a ...  30mm base...?

More assembly, hopefully back to painting at lunch next week.




CPP-1.  Corporate Police Prototype-1.  I'm sure any resemblance to a 1980s action movie's main character is purely coincidental.... 




This is an alternate sculpt of the GCC Judge that was a KS exclusive.  He came out a little lean-y.  The tab was a bit wide for the slop, and even though it fit ok after I trimmed it, when I went to glue it snagged on one end and bonded pretty much instantly.  I'll try straightening him out with hot water.  If that doesn't work I'll slice him off the tab and pin him.




And I believe this is the alternate sculpt of the Texico Marshall that was unlocked in the pledge manager....

Did a little paint sorting. Did a little mini washing.

And today I did a little priming.


The 5 starter Kemvar and the sniper.




The 5 starter Keizai Waza and the sniper.


I plan to start with the Kemvar first, in greys, browns and greens.


Next assembly day I want to find the other stretch goal figs (all 4 starter factions got some) for these two factions and get them assembled and caught up. Looks like there are two of each.  Kemvar gets a Spy and a Monkeywrench, and Keizai Waza gets a Booster and a Demo.

Well, it is meeting right before lunch day, so some assembly.




Kemvar Spy





Kemvar Monkeywrench





Keizai Waza Booster



Still have the KW Demo to do, likely next week.

I'll take the Kemvar figs home to clean and then bring them back to prime and paint with the rest of the team.

Go the spy and wrench primed...





Then time to start figuring out a colour scheme.  This is what the art from Megacon Games looks like:



So here's what I've come up with so far:



Those are just shadow colours for the most part, and I haven't touched the face yet.  not sure what I want to do with the boots yet, some painted examples I've seen have the same brighter plate colour on parts and some don't.

      Finished a couple more gang members for Warlord Games Judge Dredd game.  Painted with reaper and Vallejo.  In theory they'll get used for demos so I didn't want to burn a lot f time on the bases.  These were some of their first figures in their new resin.  It's kind of like Bones I as far as material goes.  Also think they some of their early  ones in 3d modelling as the "engraving" is almost too light.  makes it hard to pick out details and you've got to be careful not to apply too heavy a coat or you'll fill in lines pretty easily.

      'Scorch' Sotniko was hot. This whole damn world was hot, but this stinking jungle somehow seemed to be hotter still. The other mercenaries he was moving through the jungle with looked like they were feeling about the same as he was. Strange Midnight, their scout, didn't seem to be bothered as much as everyone else, but that was because he came from the rad deserts of Zargove-3. This was just a nice stroll in the woods for him. Scorch knew that they'd be at the rendezvous point in another half hour or so, and then he'd get a break. He'd be able to refill his canteens, as well as to remove the heavy Intergalactic Marine Expeditionary Force armor that he'd gotten a few months back off the black market. Between the heavy armor, the protective anti-flash gear, the flamethrower he was carrying, and all the rest of his gear, he had a fairly heavy load. It'd be good to able to shed the weight, even if only for a little while. Some of the other guys gave him grief about his chosen equipment, but they hadn't seen what the bugs they were hunting could do to a man; Scorch had. From what he'd heard, the IMEF armor was supposed to offer a substantial amount of protection from the claws and fangs that most of their current enemy was armed with. Likewise, the flamethrower was good for keeping them at a distance and killing whole swaths of the things at once. Yeah, it might be hot, but the way Scorch figured it, that was better than all the screamin', bleedin' and dyin' he remembered from his first encounter with the bugs.
      Nothing fancy, just a fairly quick tabletop paint job to shake the rust off.

      This year's Christmas present to myself was a Sonic Mini 4k printer.  I've done a few runs now and promised a pic of a painted mini at some point.  Gardain here was a bit of a failure as it turns out there were a few problems with the pre-supports.  Still, he's 99% ok which means he's good enough to use as an example, but also that I don't care enough to paint to a high standard.
      So with that in mind, he was painted with a thin layer of primer through the airbrush, a slightly thinned basecoat, and then a few washes.  I.e. the point is to show off how much detail the printer can do, how visible the layer lines are, etc, not how well I can (or can't) paint. He is a 32mm scale dwarf, which means he is a little taller than a Reaper dwarf, but not quite as tall as a Reaper human.

      The very bottom of this gauntlet pancaked, but you can only really see it if he is upside down.

      Yup, that's a hair support.  The presupport was at too low of an angle so it bonded to the figure.

      Btw, those eyes are tiny. His right eye is really bad because the arm blocks coming in from below, the sculpted bushy eyebrow makes any high angle impossible, and he has a big nose.  Jab straight in and hit where you aim!  In fact, they are so small that I can't even tell I painted them at arm's length.  If you skipped them to get him on the table no one would notice.

      And there you have it, my first [painted] 3D print.
