So are the Mercenaries going to be a real faction at this point? Similar to Mercenaries in Warmachine or something along those lines? If so, coolness

Hi,

There will indeed be options for Mercenary factions, along with many other options for creating custom forces. We're not ready to unveil that information in full yet, but it's not far away.

Cheers,
Spartan Neil

No harm in throwing in a fleet of Bone Griffons as a mercenary faction for a game of DW, right? Cut the cost of the ships in half and I think we have some great cannon fodder.

The Aussies are the only mercs i've read about in D-wars so far, will there also be other sub factions?

I think there's just one Russian sub right now. Are there Aussie mercs too?

Australia is mercenary-land.I think all mercenaries migrate there where they won't be judged for their previous actions unless another merc unit has been hired to be judge, jury, and execuitioners

Nice. I like options that will bring to the game. Just hope the "speciality" is varied enough to make each one unique.

Very interesting, maybe a sort of PMC which includes all the mercs in the game ?

@moleytov - Jamaican Bombsledge - Best unit name yet!

Given where I'm from, I'm all in favour of the Australian Mercenary rogue faction being the first out. Maybe lots of coastal cutters that have excellent speed and manoevability?

Wow, way more fellow Aussies on this forum than i'd expect! Definitely getting the Aus forces unless theyre spectacularly ****. Roo cavalry for the win! Poisonous reptile attack for extra boarding AD!

Another Aussie here :)
I started making up my own merc rules for Aussie Mini Subs using the Iron Dwarves Kraken class sub model on the old forum, but the majority of the work has been lost.

I still have the Stat card with the Eureka Stockade Flag made up and will re post the info when I get the chance.

A "Australian Mercenaries" might be a nice addition
