If there is an African tribe which has been idealized, and that
represents the African continent, it is the Maasai tribe. Noble, valiant
and hardened, they are a society of warrior-hunters. However, none of
this prevented them being crushed by the forces of history. Displaced to
Corregidor, they have had to adapt and find new occupations and
objectives for their tribal peculiarities.
In this way the Moran,
Maasai warriors, became the hunters of the Nomad Military Force.
Designated as Light Infantry, all of them are experienced skirmishers.
Their function is to provide intelligence data, becoming the advanced
eyes of an attacking force. They also perform "hidden operations", in
which their presence must pass unnoticed. In these kinds of missions
they conduct irregular reconnaissance and surveillance patrols in
forest, jungle and urban terrain. Moreover, they carry out assaults
against enemy advanced forces and perform delaying actions. When a Moran
Hunter team is assigned as protection for a specific area or region,
their primary objective is to hunt down, and capture or terminate, enemy
sabotage and reconnaissance units, sniper teams, etc. Their mission is
to prevent enemy infiltration, sabotage, theft of sensitive materials,
and any other activity that might threaten the objective they protect.
When tasked with search operations, their main role is to hunt down and
capture enemy pilots or aircrew shot down over allied or neutral
territory, or track and neutralize spies, enemy intelligence agents or
escaped prisoners of war. However, in spite of their training, their
sophisticated weapons, and all the technology they use, a Moran is
easily recognizable by his plaited long hair and cloak, leaving no doubt
this is an African regiment. This also means tribal markings and
hairstyles, superstitions, amulets and magical propitiations aimed at
converting enemy bullets into water, but only if the proper rituals are
followed exactly. It may seem exotic, even funny, but no-one laughs when
they open your chest with their machetes to drink the blood which
sputters from your dying heart.
Miniatures are supplied unpainted. Preparation and assembly may be required.
