United Mercantile Federation Army


People think we're a bunch of used Gear salesmen who'd sell our mothers for a handful of marks. We're not. We're dedictaed to protecting our families, our League, and we just understand that an interest in the economy contributes to that.

-Lt. Giardo Gladston, UMFA PR Officer

UMF Intro

Just to make sure we're in agreement, the footage we've got of that battle is less than 60 hours old. It's been scrubbed and declassified and we're offering it for the agreed up-front and two percent of the gross from your advertising. We know you can get it on Hermes 72 in twenty minuts if we can make a deal. Do we have a deal?

-Lt. Giardo Gladston, UMFA PR Officer


The United Mercantilist Federation is often seen as being focused, perhaps overly so, on capitalism. There's some truth to this: the League literally allows votes to be bought, and the military forces are allowed to fund themselves by merchandising and related efforts. 

The United Mercantilist Federation Army has limited access to some common Northern designs like the Cheetah but adds access to special designs such as the Tiger, Sabertooth, and Weasel.

The UMFA's self-funding has a side effect that units may use intersting, visually-distinctive paint schemes, allowing for a wide range of modeling opportunities.
