The NorLight Armed Forces


I come from the land of the prophet. I fight for all the people of Terra Nova and the colonies. The prophet is my guide and I will enact his will.
-Mohir Rega, Dorothean Warrior Monk, upon enlisting in the NorLight Armed Forces

The Norlight Armed Forces: The Prophet's Warriors

Sure, my cousin use to go to Prophet's Shield meetings. I've never been comfortable with that kind of thing, though. Sure, I go and listen to the chaplain regularly, and I've had a few private discussions with him recently, but there's no reason to think I'm involved with those terrorist acts the Prophet's Shield are involved in. I'm just a loyal Revisonist. Loyal to the faith and the Northern Lights Confederacy.


The Norlight Armed Forces act as the military force for the Northern Lights Confederacy and A major reason players may be interested in the Northern Lights Confederacy is the league's focus on faith. This is reflected on the tabletop as a NLC force can designate a model as a Chaplain that can motivate his or her army to fight better. If the Chaplain is in a Heavy Gear it can even be a Warrior Monk that is equipped with a Gear-sized Fighting Staff that can make devastating melee strikes. A Norlight force can make several Gear chassis swaps to locally-produced designs. The Tiger and it's command variant Sabertooth can replace Jaguars. Additionally, NLC Forces can swap Hunters for the locally produced Cheetah Gear and can upgrade all Ferrets to the improved Ferret Mk II design.
