Post Jihad / WoR the Warhawk is Scorpion exclusive, as per the MUL

Ahh I see, thanks. That was one of my favorite mechs, alpha strike 1 hit kill on most IS lights lol

You think once Sea Fox starts the trading chain with the Empire, they will get the design or should I say earn the right to its plans ?

they're the only ones with a concentration worth noting. a few may have slipped down the trade routes into the inner sphere but they're very rare.

Good read, really cements the Empire.

Thank you :)

Basically, Warhawks were only manufactured in the Homeworlds, and the Scorps are the only ones who managed to take the plans with them when they left

The uproar about the RD in DD kinda makes losing ProtoMechs seem not so bad, eh?  ;D

One of those options has more scenario hooks and deployable unit types, and thus is superior for a wargame faction.

You know, i already meet a couple of CGB fans that are willing to change to the Escorps. Mostly because they dont like the rest of the OZ clans.

Why would they do that? The Bears are finally starting to get interesting.

Mostly, its rejection to the whole RD "Civil War" and how the Dev are setting the clan. I am not a CGB/RD fan, so i can not say much more than that.

An off topic question, where did they get gene samples for the ELH bloodnames? Some had no one with those name in the 71st LH. Also is there any idea of which bloodnames where made from them?

Do we have a list of every ELH soldier that was Absorbed?

The Barclay Bloodname is noted in Operational Turning Points - Hanseatic Crusade sourcebook and claimed to be "one of (the) Clan’s new Blood Legacies created from Eridani Light Horse genetic samples Another Bloodname of Eridani descent is the Winston Bloodname.

The majority of the survivors were taken as abtakha and formed the basis of two new light clusters along with a scattering of Clan Seekers. The remaining personnel of the 71st, primarily the command staff and most talented MechWarriors, were scattered throughout Clan Goliath Scorpion primarily, with a few taken as isorla by other Clans.

So, as much as needed, only two can be traced to ELH.

Nothing specific. But adding ELH genes into their breeding program is what drove them from the Homeworlds. That's a lot of time to collect genetic samples.

So, more for my own internal bookkeeping, but also to help other fans, i have made this short list of the Clan Goliath Scorpion/Scorpion Empire Galaxies and their camo. Feel free to correct me if you think i am wrong.

Alpha Galaxy  - (Slate gray with black highlights or camouflage mottling.)

Beta Galaxy - Now Hellion Galaxy (since 3095) - (Sandy beige or gold with black accents.)
Hellion Keshik - (pale ice blue. A single navy blue pinstripe runs along the outside of each limb. The Hellion Galaxy insignia stands proud on the front right and rear left torso.)

Gamma Galaxy - Disbanded in 3073 - (Blood-red and gold color.)

Delta Galaxy - Destroyed on Brim in 3072 - (Black with orange and red highlights resembling molten lava.)

Rho Galaxy - Disbanded in 3086 - (Sandstone red with dark gray highlights.)

Tau Galaxy - (Hunter green with black accents.)

Mu Galaxy - (Bright white base coat accented with royal blue highlights; appropriate camouflage patterns are used where the situation demands.)

Chi Galaxy - Now Seeker Galaxy - (Browns with golden yellow accents. They do not yet display insignia. Warriors are permitted to decorate their preferred dueling weapon with a bright green ‘poison’ design.)
Seeker Keshik - (This is my theory = Blood-red and silver color, like the Crimson Seeker Star.)

Omega Galaxy - (Green, with stripes along the arms of 'Mechs and battle armor, the turrets of vehicles when possible and the sides when not, and the wings of aerospace fighters.  The stripes are equal parts red over yellow.)

PGC/Grunt Galaxy - (Camo unknown)

Eta Galaxy - (Camo Unknown)
