Anton’s Revolt[edit]

In 3014 the 10th Marik Militia supported Janos Marik during Anton Marik's revolt. For most of that conflict they were based on Thermopolis.[1] Typically the 10th Marik Militia was equipped with heavy and assault units, with several light companies added to provide some quick strike ability.[2]

In 3020 the Tenth faught Steiner forces on Callison[3].

Andurien Secession[edit]

The Tenth attacked Xanthe III in 3037 as part of the Andurien War.[4] Alongside the 15th Marik Militia they faced the 3rd Defenders of Andurien and the 5th Defenders of Andurien. The Fifth Defenders hit the 15th Marik Militia and destroyed their command cohesion. At this time the Tenth's commander, Samuel Garibaldi took command of all FWLM forces on the world and led them out to a fortified area. Unfortunately the Tenth lost two-thirds of their 'Mechs in that effort.[5] Fortunately, they didn't lose the MechWarriors and this allowed them to rebuild quickly.[2]

Clan Invasion[edit]

During the Clan Invasion they were known as the Hammers and the Tenth remained a very skilled unit. The LCCC regarded them as the equal of the 1st Marik Militia and 6th Marik Militia.[6] Prior to the start of the Jihad, they were based on Bernardo.[7]

When the Free Worlds League shattered, the Tenth obeyed the orders given to them by Corinne Marik, leader of the Marik Commonwealth. She sent them to the Rim Commonality to forcibly integrate that small political union into the Commonwealth. On the way to their new station, however, the Tenth received a plea for assistance from Kendall. The Kendalls reported that the Marian Hegemony had attacked and driven the Bad Dream mercenary unit offworld. The Tenth deposed their leader in a bloodless coup and chose to defend their former countrymen. As of 3079, the Tenth has positioned one 'Mech battalion of the regiment on Kendall, Lahti, and Hednesford to dissuade Marian aggression.[8]


In 3025 the unit is commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Samuel Garibaldi.[9]

In 3050 the commanding officer is Colonel Symnington Beauregard Lee.[10]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Colonel Cindy Meyer[2]. She was still in command in 3067.[11]

She was removed from command by 3079. No information on the new CO is available at this time.[8]


The Tenth Marik Militia was usually used as a shock troop unit, but they were skilled at adjusting their tactics to the behavior of their enemies. For example in one case they used the Case Red Assault Battalion to strike Capellan lines head on, but a few years later they used light 'Mechs to string out and destroy slow moving Lyran forces in a city.[2]
