I threw "Vic's Vaporizers" into the hat; they'd just be "Vic's Vapor" after they get nuked :D

I went with an old favorite that I normally use with Manei Domini forces: Vigor Mortis.

I sent mine:

Rutger's Raubritters

Part of a Lyran unit that went rogue during the chaos and sets out for service to a higher calling:  their wallets!
The Clans: the Star League the Inner Sphere deserves, not the one it needs.

I sent in two, the first mostly for the pun value, and the second based on some 3025 characters I've written about here and there:

1) Stack's Deck: all the playing card allusions you can think of, to include "52 pick-up" when the unit gets crushed.

2) Vercelli's Vigilantes: based on a couple of shady characters (father and son) from the era of Anton's Revolt and after. As I said to Ray: "A Second Succession War ancestor with a similarly shady reputation would be icing on the cake."

Since everyone is sharing, I tossed two names into the pot.

1) Bad News Firewalkers - a unit from the Bad News system that has no problem with high temperatures (until that nuke hits that is!)

2) Red Rover's Ronin - old high school basketball nickname plus some masterless samurai.  May they die gloriously!

The Pale Horsemen has always been my unit. Think about Revelation 6:8 and you'll know what they're about.

Vigor Mortis is good, I like that one.

Tex 'Mechs?
The Grim Brothers
The Walking Dread

Too punny?

I guess I'll get in on the spirit of posting what I submitted.

Above all others was Green Thunder.

Honorable mentions were Damage Force Plus and Heaven's Wrath.

For all the unit's I've helped create as part of my gaming group or came up with on my own I do feel it a bit weird that those are the only three I'm willing to be flexible enough on their past to offer up to the Second Succession War.

I sent in a total of nine names with The Disposable Heroes (Metallica reference) and The Forlorn Hope as the two more original names out of the bunch.
Commander Louis Seifer, SWD-2r Swordsman, Extreme Measures, Inc.
Shizuko Lofgren, Assault Infantry Platoon, Oniwaka
Takahiro Nakajima, ASN-21CO Assasin, Crimson Oasis Trading Company
Commander Jessica Dunleavy, VTR-9BP Victor, Dunleavy's Pistoleros

It's an Omni, so I can build it into whatever I please - JHB

suggestions & reasons why:

You may recall James Degenhardt aka RPGsheets aka Amalor Myrnnyx, a well-known painter extraordinaire, who passed away 3 years ago.  (March 2014)  He had created several homebrew mercenary units, but only one fits.

AUTUMN'S HARVESTERS  I can't recall much beyond it being a mixed force of battalion-ish size.

A second offering would be in honor of Chris Dickerson AKA DREAD, who passed away in November 2015.
DREAD'S NAUGHTS.   I think he said it was about regiment in size.

final suggestion:  RONIN'S REGULATORS. A cavalry battalion with a mix of fast mediums and hovertanks.

GROGNARD:  An old, grumpy soldier, a long term campaigner (Fr); Someone who enjoys playing tactics and strategy based board wargames;  a game fan who will buy every game released in a certain genre of computer game (RTS, or computer role-playing game, etc.)

They are a canon unit, never given stats from House Davion, pg. 69.

Look 'em up.

What a great idea.

Sent 3 in, my merc unit from an ongoing campaign. One named after the Mrs and the last named after where I live.
