Looking for names of regular Great House units in the game
« on: 05 November 2018, 17:15:23 »
So I'll be painting up DA era battalions for House Liao, Davion, Kurita, and Marik using the DA paintschemes.

But the completist in me wants to know what the House units  represented are, if this is available anywhere. Era Report: Dark Age gives me the factions, but not the houses. Yes, I know the League don't get a mention, I'll work something out.

My understanding is that each house (like each faction) had a Green, Veteran, and Elite unit named. Anyone able to help me out here?


* No, FASA wasn't big on errata - ColBosch
* The Housebook series is from the 80's and is the foundation of Btech, the 80's heart wrapped in heavy metal that beats to this day - Sigma
* To sum it up: FASAnomics: By Cthulhu, for Cthulhu - Moonsword
* Because Battletech is a conspiracy by Habsburg & Bourbon pretenders - MadCapellan
* The Hellbringer is cool, either way. It's not cool because it's bad, it's cool because it's bad with balls - Nightsky
* It was a glorious time for people who felt that we didn't have enough Marauder variants - HABeas2, re "Empires Aflame"

Go to > Mechwarrior > Lances and Stars.  You will see unit insignias which should help you with canon paint schemes.  I’ve never checked to see how canonical Mechwarrior paint schemes are but you can in the Units section.  May take a little hunting.

Revelations 6:8.  And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.
