The minor mercenary unit of Kingston's Killers (also known as Crawford's BattleMechs) was a splinter faction of the Tooth of Ymir that separated due to their refusal to carry on with the rest of their unit when they signed on to a contract with the Capellan Confederation.
In 3062, the unit deployed all their units alongside the mercenary unit known as The 48th in a small conflict on the side of Palatine of Duvic faction against the County Shu faction on the world of Epsilon Eridani.
Kingston died at the hands of the Vigilantes, a Shu County Battlemech reinforced lance commanded by Commander Tybalt Kelly. It is notable that Crawford was piloting a Pillager, and the opposing forces consisted of a Lineholder (piloted by Tybalt Kelly), a Javelin, a Raven, and a pair of Commandos. Kingston managed to destroy one of the Commandos, killing its pilot (Subcommander Aldo Snell), as well as the Javelin (whose pilot survived).
