http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/gallery/80/full/146.png Let's play a game and imagine you just pledged $1800 (if you did, kudos to you) so you must co-design a merc ingame. How would he/she look like? What would the name, the stats and the skills be? What bodytype? What hair color? And most important, what would be his/her background story?

You can either be textual about this or if you really want to spruce up your merc, use the Original War Face Generator we've found:

Go wild, you never know when that rich uncle you never knew dies and leaves you with a huge inheritance to splash on KS!

Runo Buchinsky
Russian conscript turned thug, turned alcoholic, turned immigrant. Uncouth in manners and speech, Runo at least gets the job done. A loner with a thing for firearms which leave rather large holes in their targets.
Spot the cheesy references, win a high five.

An average man with a not so average attitude. Words are a waste of time. "Gunshot speaks louder than any word", Runo says with a grim murmur. Perhaps he just doesn't like English very much.
Years of drinking, as his heritage demands of him, has knocked his health down a few pegs but other than that he's a lean, oiled machine. Just have some booze ready in case he gets cranky.

Professional merc or a cheap gun for hire? Who knows? I'd guess you'd find him in a dive bar, causing trouble.

http://www.andrzejfalkowski.pl/img/projects/ja2/misfire.png
Traits: Engineer(1.13)/Electronics(JA2), Ambidexterous
Disability: Nervous
Attitude: Arrogant
Character: Malicious
Voice: Slow and articulate with neutral accent, turns to high-pitched and fast with strong polish accent when under pressure.
Personality/dialogue: Overall professional, with hints of arrogance and sarcasm. High self-esteem (maybe not of Conrad's level). Rare breakdowns when in danger.

Comment: Jagged Alliance need more Poles, so there's the name (good luck at spelling that if you're not polish), also there's subtle pun in surname ("schrzanińá" means "to screw up"). I always preferred lower level characters, that you can hire at the beginning of the game, so there's his skills. As for the background and personality I aimed for a character with a lot of quirks, but not over the top, so you wouldn't feel like a joke is being thrown into your face (e.g. Rudolf's swear bombs get old pretty fast).

I take it we're not limited to one merc here, cause I still have some ideas?

It's a pretty nice pic, if you can draw that you shouldn't have any trouble to turn that into a JA2 merc portrait for example

If you have other ideas, please post them, seems promissing!

Hell no, go full tilt mate! Btw - i hope you can give FC some pointers what filters to use to get this "classic JA2" look for their portraits. You MUST be in the Advisory Team!

Great piccy , but is someone likely to be arrogant AND nervous ?

Arrogance carries it's own sense of superiority , so maybe another disability ?

This.

Misfire's a hypocrite. Think of Hudson in Aliens - full of himself, but when the all hell breaks loose turns into a wreck (altough he later redeemed himself).

@scope100: Elvis impersonator? Cool

Traits:
(JA2)Lockpicking, Teaching
(1.13)Gunslinger, Auto weapons, Teaching
Attitude: Big shot
Character: Showoff
Voice: Slow, relaxed, and a bit hoarse. Californian accent (if there's such a thing:P). In danger - overenthusiastic.
Personality/dialogue: Style over matter, an ode to the kitsch. Guy's melancholic about idealized image of days gone by, hence his nickname. Entire JA has a bit of 80s action movie feeling, so it's only appropriate. Possible clashes with more pragmatic/professional mercs.

I wasn't out pointing an error, I'm pretty sure both impersonator and imitator are correct in this case. Was highlighting a cool background fact in the bio though:P

JAF should hire you, anv. Seriously! Please keep them coming. And if you have the time for Dwayne Johnson-like character (The Rock), I would appreciate it even more. A character heavily-influenced by Vin Diesel (Riddick) would be cool also.

Hey you can't expect a battle-hardened mercenary who spends all their time in the jungle to keep up with fashion

@Shanga just seems to be today, never had problems with it before :/

@Scheinworld Thanks, but I do have a copy of Ron's portrait pack. As good as it is, it isn't really as JA'd as that of anv. On second thought, the most badass of mercs is Canderous Ordo from Star Wars KotOR. I would really appreciate it if you can create a JA portrait of him, anv - that is, if you take requests. Pleeeeaase!! I've tried several times, but my artistic skills are just so limited. I just couldn't create a portrait out of the Canderous Ordo mostly because it is in 3D. Any attempt looks horrible!

The character is said to be based on Ron Perlman:
