While most private military companies are purely business ventures, the Quig are a professional organization with a pseudo-philosophical view towards combat and the proliferation of proxy wars.
I didn't want them to look like they have any particular state sponsorship, so I tried to avoid a look that said either NATO or Soviet too strongly. The end result was kind of a WWI Tommy meets WWII Japan.
I was going for a look that kinda says "I'm evil cannon fodder but havent realized it yet"
