Black Market Beagles has joined QMx! And it’s a good thing.
Mainly it means that Adam Levermore-Rich’s geek-based business will now get more attention, the quality of the materials should improve, and his browncoat-based designs will be a bit more official. And Qmx gets a ready-made line of beautifully designed geekwear. Win-win.
First up, a shoulder patch for the 12th Cavalry Airborne.
The men and women of the Independents 12th Cavalry, whose unit slogan “Death From Above” described them perfectly: They rained terror and ordinance on enemy forces where ever they were – space, the air or the ground. Their heavily-armed, but surprisingly maneuverable, gunboats could be configured for all manner of missions from patrol to deep insertion to flying fortress duty. Small enough to avoid detection, fast enough to hit quick and retreat, big enough to grapple even with the capital ships, the gunboats were the perfect vehicle for an armed militia that specialized in guerrilla warfare.
The 12th Cavalry were Browncoats to reckoned with.
And a T-shirt commemorating the ISV Cerberus, the Bravest Browncoats, featuring a logo designed by Serenity graphic designer Geoff Mandel.
There is perhaps no braver soldier than the one who fights a hopeless battle not because they think they can win, but because they know it is right. Such was the caliber of crew aboard the ISV Cerberus, Browncoats that fought tirelessly and with distinction from the hopeful beginning to the bitter end. Taken down not by superior skill or greater bravery, but by a technological edge brought about by vast industrial power.
More stuff is coming! And you can buy it in QMx’s new shopping cart system, that’s a bit more robust and feature-rich than their previous one (although the speed could use some work, guys).
