Picking A Faction Part III: The Total Noobs Guide To The South (Heavy Gear)

Moving on in our metaphorical journey around the world of Terra Nova Brings us to that other Polar Powerhouse, the Southern Republic. Where the North is made of forests, prairies and hardwood deserts, the South hemisphere of Terra Nova is largely made of dense rain-forest and tropical jungle. The so called Southern Republic, unlike its Northern counterpart, was largely created by one nation conquering all of its neighbors.

In play, they have largely the same types of gears to work with as the North, save that instead of an eldar-style interdependency between specialized units, the Southern Gears fulifll more general roles, and typically rely on more area effect weaponry than pinpoint precision. Also, while their Heavy Gears are based on stolen Northern technology, the gears themselves are different aesthetically, having rounded, bulbous armor plates rather than square and angular.
