Description[edit]

The unit has risen since its founding in 3055 to prominence. Per internal policy Cino Vincenti styled his MechWarriors after the ancient Terran "cowboys", and the ten-gallons hats the stable members don for press conferences have made them a distinct and instantly recognizable group.[1]

History[edit]

Formed in 3055 the stables has grown through a series of wins in the reaches. Just after 6 months, the stable saw its ranking upgraded from D to C. Vincenti scored a publicity coup soon after when himself and several MechWarriors got into a barroom brawl with Dick Benson and a handful of the Vampires sparking a feud between the two stables. A match was scheduled with the Vampires and their home Arena in which the Hombres defeated their rival stable. A rematch was asked but no answer was given. In the meantime, and riding on their new found fame, a tag-team match in The Scrapyard against Wraiths Stables has already been scheduled.[1]

The Hombres Stables suffered heavy losses during the Word of Blake occupation of Solaris in the early stages of the Jihad, after members of the Renegades joined a major resistance cell made of the Pentastars Gang and Renegades Cooperative out in Nowhere, the Blakists ultimately eliminating the cell.[2]

Stable Master and Owners[edit]

  • Cino Vincenti, born on Sierra is the founding owner of the stable. He was a fight promoter and a master showman, and with good publicity has made the Hombres a fan favorite.[1][3]

Notable Personnel[edit]

Instructor[edit]

  • Constance Raba is the lead instructor of the Hombres Stable. A Free Worlds League officer, a company commander with the Andurien-based First Free Worlds Legionnaires. She served with distinction, notably in border-world campaigns against mercenaries from the Magistracy of Canopus. Despite her impressive talents as commander she was demoted in rank twice for insubordination and rotated to non-combat duty. Frustrated with the military mentality, Raba left the Legionnaires and took up with the Hombres.[1]
