Cranston Snord's Irregulars is a sourcebook and scenario pack describing Snord's Irregulars, a company-sized mercenary unit, and its exploits, from a viewpoint of around the year 3025. Written largely as an in-character treatise by Thelos Auburn, the unit's history as presented in this book contains many details that have been proven wrong in other sources, such as stating a wrong year (3002) for the unit's formation when its leader Cranston Snord was purportedly cashiered from Wolf's Dragoons who only appeared in 3005. (The correct formation year is 3007.)

The information in Cranston Snord's Irregulars was updated in the scenario pack titled Rhonda's Irregulars, which continues the unit's story past 3051.

From the back cover[edit]

Cranston Snord's Irregulars have widely different reputations, depending on who you ask. Katrina Steiner thinks of the unit as one of the most effective, if unorthodox, units in her employ. House Marik would like to rid the Inner Sphere of the unit and has been trying for many years. Jaime Wolf sees the unit as a band of looters who have made good. One way or the other, the Irregulars are probably best known for their ability to get into and out of tight spots created by their never-ending quest for the lost artifacts and/or treasures of Mankind's past. Whether called looters or not, they are still a unit to be reckoned with.

This scenario set details the history of Snord's Irregulars, profiles the statistics and conditions of it members and the company 'Mechs, and includes 14 scenarios pitting the Irregulars against the wide variety of opponents they have fought throughout their colorful past. Also described are some of their more memorable treasure hunting expeditions.
