The Leagueless

The forces you will encounter in the Terra Novan wastes are wide and varied. Sometimes, I think we'd be lucky to deal with a CNCS patrol ot a SRA detachment. With the 'unaffilaited factions' we might have to deal with anything. Some groups are bandits with stolen or rebuilt military gear that might have been fielded during our first invasion attempt. Some might be militias thrown together from an isolated settlement that try to take on our hover tanks with converted work Gears and infantry in converted trucks. Then there's the Khayr-Ad-Din Army, an entire army formed of Gear duelists. Be careful out there, you never know what these Terra Novans will surprise us with.

-CEF Lieutenant Darrel Barns addressing his troops before a patrol.

Some people just aren't joiners...

The Leagueless is not a true faction like the CEF, MILICIA, or Northern Guard, but an option players can use to represent the countless small forces of Terra Nova. A Leagueless force might be a small settlement's militia. it could be a band of raiders. The duelists of Khayr Ad-Din The Leagueless faction is intended to allow players to create forces that are very personal.

The Leagueless rules can be downloaded from this website or are incldued in Heavy Gear Blitz: Locked & Loaded. Additionally, Perfect Storm: NuCoal Field Guide and Forged in Fire Southern Field Guide have additions to the Leagueless. The Leagueless is often considered an army for veteran players due to it's extremely free-form army creation rules.

The Leagueless variants are all extremely free-form lists designed to allow eclectic combinations of Heavy Gears and support vehicles from several Terra Novan sources. This provides a range of modeling opportunities as these Gears and vehicles come from multiple factions and may have battle damage or repairs evident.
