Hi Geek,
I'm probably going to paint the minis and I was wondering what colors the Prisec Units have in Netrunner. From the material I've seen so far, they seem to be gray-ish. Can somebody confirm this? Many thanks!

Since they're private security, they're basically mercenaries, I think. Here are the two cards I know of that show them:





I like to imagine that the two people in the second card are both prisec agents for different corps, and that the lady in the foreground kills the guy in the background.

But I think the lady in the foreground is supposed to be the target.

If in doubt, go with standard police colours of blue, black and white.

The units in New Angeles are the heavy riot gear type. I don't think i saw their look in the Netrunner cards yet, but i did drop out from that game after the first expansion cycle.

As Jean-Phillipe mentioned, we haven't seen this particular kind of prisec unit in Netrunner yet, but prisec in general do tend to be grey.

The ones in New Angeles are Globalsec security forces, so perhaps the other option that would make sense would be to paint them in Globalsec colors.

This is the suit depicted by the Prisec model. The card (and the lore insert included in the Martial Law datapack) indicates that this is actually a USMC soldier, not a Prisec, so take that for what it is.

The models in the game have the Globalsec logo on their riot shields, so they're definitely prisec. It's possible that they and the USMC use the same armor, though.

Given that they're Globalsec, it might make sense to base the color schemes on the Globalsec logo, the image on their corp sheet, and Sunny's uniform jacket (https://netrunnerdb.com/en/card/09045).

Edit: Basically, what Sassycat said. That'll teach me to skim threads.

I had the same question. In the world of android (background book) you get a descent image. You can see it on some YouTube reviews.

I imagine the prisec guys looking a lot like the Belltower mercs in the deus ex games. Lots of blacks, grays and metallic colors.

I just finished painting my set of figures but I took a different approach to this one, in stead of fully painting them like I usually do I opted for shading and highlighting to give them a Frank Miller kind of feel. Will post pics later.
