 Training battalions work but you still need trained techs to keep the machinery in running order . Increase unit numbers and complexity at the same time can be a disaster without a lot of prep work in advance .

That is true, but apart from the Fields of Mars and the Tech of Bellorum College, I understand that Techwizards Inc (a mech recovery company, and what you can imagine), they also train techs so in Tech I tell you to flower like flowers in the field but has more than providing the troops of the Collegium Bellorum, if it is possible for the Mechawarriors to train in the schools that train Mechwarriors train technicians of Mech, as in the other cases of Aero , Tanks or Battlearmor also train techs.
In places suggesting academies are where there are factories of what I say to train, another thing to keep in mind is that the 3 or 4 companies dedicated to the defense should incorporate their own technicians, engineers and scientists

???  Military academies train officers, not techs.

Well I uploaded the map with the surrounding areas, where there are factories of the Marian Hegemony and some extra notes of interest, so we are not lost where are confirmed factories and that according to fluff production, hence we can more theorize, where it would be better to put New Training Schools of any kind and where one would put other factories in the MH

So I found this little thing while browsing /btg/ the other day. No idea if it's official as I can't find it on Sarna what so ever but the art is convincing. The guys I play with have already cleared it for use so I'm planning to have one per 100 man infantry unit I take as a sort of command squad. What do you guys think about this or have you even seen it before?

Looks cool, and is a nice unit. I've not seen it before, it could be something from a past TRO that didn't make the cut or something for a upcoming product (unlikely Catalyst is good about leaks).

Any mention of the Hegemony in TRO: Succession Wars's 3250 intro?

The stagnation in BT has me homebrewing an alternate future where a depleted Hegemony makes use of Clan troops as foederati

The fluff from different timelines must be jarring.

It is to be hoped they use this revenue to expedite pushing ilClan out to us soon

The Pucara is an interesting little bird, though from the name I thought it would be something similar to the Boeing Jump Bomber. The fuel load means it's mostly seeing use with auxilia more often?

When I designed it, I had the idea that mostly be used by the Legio Provincials and privatter market or merc, giving a strong punch anti mech or anti dropships.
Also due to the considerable deficit of aerofighters in the periphery, it is not uncommon that they finish in the Alae of the MHAF

It would be good to follow any debate in the post of Baldur so there are no problems to talk about the topic

Sure. I like the Pucara name. Probably has to do with the real-life Pucara that also looks cool :)

I hope you'll excuse a potentially dumb question, but there seems to be a lot of history to comb through to get up to speed here... is this basically general discussion about all things Marian Hegemony?

More like a drinking hole for those with an interest in the Hegemony, one way or another.

Me, I'm a Leaguer/Jade Falcon, but did a Marian battalion in minis, and dropped in to learn some stuff. They still take my money ;)

Cool. I'm relatively new to the tabletop game and have had trouble settling on factions, but Marian Hegemony is one of the ones I felt I had to focus on getting painted first. Otherwise, I'd be betraying my inner Classicist.

Speaking of, anyone have paint schemes they'd like to share?

My favorite is IV Legio. Cover the whole thing in rust red primer, add some orange trim where desired, and also do gun barrels, joints, and other mechanical bits. Hit the whole thing with a sepia wash, and when dry add final touches like cockpit glass and weapons jeweling. Bingo, bango, ave Caesar, finished mech of the Legions!

That's what I did for my battalion O0

The blues in I and VI Legio look interesting, but not got around to them yet.

III Legio is also nice:



And the Cohorte Mortuoris is a good way to practice good blacks.

Having minis in the colours of the Third Legion and Cohors Moritutii, too.

While I am also a part time Falcon, Society member and Wobbie the Hegemony is the faction I like most.

Those look great! Thanks for sharing. I have some I Legio decals so I'll be doing that. I also like IV.

On a side note I just learned the common application for the Latin plural missilia is "presents thrown among the people by the emperors” and I'm going to think about that every time I field missile launchers.

I have a trio of heavy missile tanks that might need personalized names based off of this.. :)
