Unit Brief[edit]

The Spica Protectorate Militia is one of the many militias raised by Word of Blake to defend the Word of Blake Protectorate. The unit was deployed in Spica.[1] As of 3075 it was the only unit raised from this planet.[2]

History[edit]

In 3069, elements of the 41st Shadow Division augmented by elements of the 13th Division captured Spica, both masquerading as elements of the "House Liao" offensive.

The Protectorate Militia was formed by the 13th Division after they conquered Spica, the unit was assigned to protect that world.

In 3071 AMC affiliated units (the Wild Geese and the 13th Stalking Horse) were battered while attacking Spica by the Protectorate Militia Unit.[3]

Devlin Stone forces conquered the planet in 3073.[4]

Rules[edit]

As long as a Protectorate Militia force is fighting on its homeworld and is acting as the scenario's Defender, the Protectorate Militia force receives the Force the Initiative and Off-Map Movement special abilities. If deployed as the Attacker in a scenario, the Protectorate Militia force loses its Force the Initiative ability, but retains its Off-Map Movement capability.

If deployed on a world other than its homeworld (such as an Epsilon Eridani force being deployed on Genoa), the Protectorate Militia force not only loses all of its special abilities, but also suffers a –2 Initiative modifier.

Although Blakist-based, Protectorate Militia forces may use standard Inner Sphere force arrangements (Lances, Companies, and Battalions) rather than Word of Blake force arrangements.[5]
