I backed at all in, so i have at least 6 or so from all the cons and cards for all of the characters and obv i can proxy.....

Butttttt i really like the tabletop and hate proxying lol. Is there a retail solution to getting the missing character s in plastic or a disatisfied backer who would be willing to part w this portion?

Have you tried emailing Mecagon and asking if you can purchase an All Your Mercs set?

huh wha... wait...

So, if you get all the MODs and stretch goals, and bought the book and cards for all factions.... you/we still dont have all the dudes in each faction and STILL have to buy the faction boxes to get everything?

there was an additional add-on during the post kickstarter phase where you could add more stuff including an all your mercs for 100(?)(i forget the exact details) but it was the remaining 4 or so minis per faction.

I think I saw a message on their website or FB page suggesting that singles are not available for sale but it's something they'll eventually do (no date provided). I'm speculating it's related to switching manufacturers and selling the current inventory of boxed factions.

As nice as it would be to have all the factions completed, as someone that has only played with 6 of the 1.0 KemVar, I'm currently feeling a bit overwhelmed with everything I now have.

The all your mercs addon was a bit over 200 bucks, (230 I think but I'm not sure on that). The 100 buck add-on was for all the mission packs.

$220. If my count is correct, that's for 40 miniatures.

The 2.0 faction packs (10 miniatures, and the factions cards) were $35 at Gen Con. At OLGS prices that would be $273 for all 12 factions. Theoretically, the miniature quality will be better with the new manufacturer as well.

I am in the same sitution as the OP (except that I've been playing MERCS Tabletop since the beginning of 1.0), and I want to complete my armies without buying the starter boxes.

There's a thread discussing this on the MERCS forums, with some replies from MERCKenny:

Hey guys,

I'm in the same boat (I started that thread on the mercs forums). There was also some conflicting info on the Kickstarter page, where the creator account said singles will be available in 2 weeks?

From: Mercs Miniatures
"We'll sell single MERCS on our website after we've finished with the mini replacements. Two weeks?"


That was posted 4 days ago. So not sure where we currently stand...

This made me smile. I didn't back the Kickstarter but post Gencon now have seven factions of five or six mini's and a nice shiny copy of the 2.0 book. Suddenly I have a crazy desire to catch own them all even although I know I'll mainly play Recon and most of the other mini's will barely see the table....

Hard to get away from that completist/collector vibe when you're a gamer

As an aside, having mainly played with EU and CCC, I was surprised and impressed by how much some of the factions changed the feel of Recon. Playing "Kid Gloves" with EIC was ....entertaining!
