Natives of New Zealand.

Fearsome warriors, even more fearsome rugby players.Maoris are pretty nails in the Unarmed Combat area, their major mistake was trying to take on the might of the British Empire armed only with bits of sharpened wood and sharks' teeth. Almost as bad a tactical disaster as Umboto Gorge, with wood being marginally more dangerous than razor-sharp pieces of mango. Eventually the Maoris gave up and many of them joined the New Zealand Army, where they served and still serve with distinction. Reports of them causing many a voided bowel amongst the Germans at Monte Cassino with their famous Haka war dance are legendary. There are a high proportion of Maori squaddies that serve with the NZ branch of THEM. All in all they are solid, motivated and committed soldiers.
