Uh huh.

Though sooner or later the Empire will reorganize along a standard once they have a healthy expanding industry.

I can't wait to see what new Mechs they bring to the table later on

There are four of their new 'Mechs in OTP: Hanseatic Crusade.

The longer this takes in the story, the better it is for gameplay.

They are creative. Quad Omni and a ramming Mech plus the upgrades. The pragmatism is good. Can't wait to see them standardize on common Omnis and designs like their SLDF ancestors.

it's just too bad the Rhino and Surtur don't have artwork yet

Perhaps hinting at an upcoming Imperial product?  ;D

It would be good to see a Handbook-style guide about the post-Hanseatic Crusade Empire or TRO: Scorpion Empire :D

Seems like the use of the word Imperial went when they changed the name of the Empire. It could come back. It maybe me.

Question:  Given Scorpion Empire's isolation from the Inner Sphere & possible the other Clans.  Is possible they will fall behind technologically?

Some stuff that was Experimental is standard tech prior to 3142 cut off from when League went off the air for good.

I was just thinking isolation could have them fall behind or go different directions that other Clans wouldn't have gone.

Considering they send out seekers, dealing with pirates, and the Homeworld Clans I would hope that their technology would go in a different direction.  Nothing major but they get one or two pieces of technology unique to them.

Imperial is just an adjective that refers to an empire. The Scorpion Empire's forces would be referred to as imperial forces. Imperio is gone, imperial is not.

Unique tech would be good. Anything to distinguish them from other Clans.

The new mechs were also a great way to get another Battletechnology mech into canon. I love the Rhino.

The Scorpions are my current faction of choice but my heart will always belong to the Terran Hegemony. A recent post in a Facebook Battletech group regarding the ilClan and a response regarding Terra woke up the Hegemony in me and this afternoon I found myself wishing for the artistic skills to replace the sun in the Scorpion logo with Earth. Show folks what a real ilClan would look like.

Just pretend the sun is actually Terra going up in the nuclear fireball it deserves.

The Scorpions are more like Mandalorians in the Outer Rim, doing their own thing away from the Core.
