Never been the conquering type, personally, so I'd have to go with the True Mandalorians/Mandalorian Protectors or just generally the "Modern"-style of Mandos as some kind of mercenary or other private contractor.

Oh, and the True Mandalorians were a mercenary group.

Partially.  Primarily, "True Mandalorians" was the name that the supercommandos loyal to Jaster Mereel—friends, a chunk of Mandalore's standing army, and several prominent clans—took to basically piss off the Death Watch and rub it in their face that they'd gone astray.  After they believed the Death Watch to be destroyed on Concord Dawn, Mereel decided to adapt the True Mandos into a mercenary army similar to the later Mandalorian Protectors under Boba Fett.  But their main role was still as an anti-Death Watch force, and they focused on combating the Death Watch every time they came back up until the True Mandalorians were destroyed at Galidraan.

Other than that, I believe ol' Spart'ika summed things pretty good for everyone else.

I never heard of them specifically seeking out the Death watch, with the exception of Jango after the True Mandalorians were downed. It seemed more like the Death Watch was the group actively pursuing them.

It's alluded to that the entire reason Jango and the True Mandalorians took on the Galidraan job in the first place, was to get to Tor Vizsla whom the Galidraan governor was helping.  It's also alluded to that the reason Vizsla's on Galidraan asking for handouts in the first place is because the True Mandalorians had hunted them and nearly destroyed them at some point between the Battle of Korda 6 and Galidraan.

Not a problem.  And hey, you're not lazy, you just went for a...basic summary. lol

Still, I thought the Death bwatch was formed after the TM, not the other way around... huh.

From the History of the Mandalorians:
"Many bloodthirsty and amoral Mandalorians resented [Jaster Mereel], having enjoyed the unaccountability of their mercenary lifestyles.  Among them was the soldier [Tor] Vizsla, who gathered the dissenters into a splinter group, the Mandalorian Death Watch. Mereel's supercommandos, in turn, recast themselves as the True Mandalorians, and total war ensued."

The narration in Open Seasons makes it sound a bit different, though.  While talking to Sidious, Dooku says:
"Decades ago, the mercenary group known as the Mandalorians fractured, giving rise to a chaotic splinter group.  They called themselves 'Death Watch' and followed a barbarian called Vizsla, who believed that the Mandalorians should conquer the galaxy. Vizsla orchestrated a bloody coup...against the True Mandalorians still loyal to a reformed murderer named Jaster Mereel..."

I think the issue of potential confusion stems from the Open Seasons writers' idea that the Mandalorians were a mercenary group rather than a people of a specific culture, and that the True Mandalorians appearing in Open Seasons were the only Mandalorians there were before it was understood or retconned—depending on how you want to look at it—that there were more to the Mandalorians than just that smaller force Mereel and later Jango were leading.

Hm. Either way, they're far smaller players in the arena of galactic politics than the comics made them seem...

Yeah, I'd agree with you there.
