Description:

The Empire often uses local creatures for its patrols, and in desert environments, Imperial troopers rely on dewbacks, mighty reptilian creatures that can survive extreme temperatures. Between the Sandtrooper rider’s array of weapons and the powerful claws of their mount, this duo is a force to be reckoned with.

Within this expansion, you’ll find an unpainted, beautifully-detailed Dewback miniature featuring a Sandtrooper rider with four distinct customization options: your Dewback Rider can be built carrying their standard shock prod, or you can equip them with three different weapons. On top of the ability to customize the look of your Dewback Rider, this Unit Expansion gives you plenty of ways to tweak how this unit operates in the thick of battle. Six upgrade cards accompany the miniature, letting you modify its armament, training, or the comms systems it carries into battle. Rounding out this expansion are a unit card and all the tokens you need to deploy it as a support unit for your Imperial armies.

Patrol planets with the finely-detailed, beautifully detailed Dewback Rider miniature featuring four distinct customization options: your Dewback Rider can be built carrying the standard shock prod, or you can equip them with three different weapons.

“Look sir, droids!” 

   –Davin Felth, Star Wars: A New Hope

The Galactic Empire rules over countless worlds, each boasting its own unique flora, fauna, and terrain. Rather than adapt their military vehicles to the conditions of every individual world, Imperial commanders commonly prefer to use local creatures to support their operations. Now, one of the most iconic creatures from the Star Wars saga is on its way to bolster your Imperial forces.

Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the Dewback Rider Unit Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

Able to survive extreme temperatures, these mighty reptilian creatures are the perfect complement to Imperial troopers during their patrols. Within this expansion, you’ll find an unpainted, beautifully detailed Dewback miniature featuring a Sandtrooper rider with four distinct customization options: your Dewback Rider can be built carrying the standard shock prod, or you can equip them with three different weapons.

On top of the ability to customize the look of your Dewback Rider, this Unit Expansion gives you plenty of ways to tweak how this unit operates in the thick of battle. Six upgrade cards accompany the miniature, letting you modify its armament, training, or the comms systems it carries into battle. Finally, a unit card  and a handful of tokens round out this expansion, giving you everything you need to deploy it as a support unit for your Imperial armies.

But these claws can be used beyond simply providing a sturdy foundation for a single trooper in battle. To the Empire, they are deadly weapons that can be used to thrash any unsuspecting enemies foolish enough to believe that Dewbacks are a docile species. Before a Dewback can unleash an attack with its claws, however, it must first close the distance. While Dewbacks commonly move at a plodding pace, they can be spurred forward to engage with enemy forces even faster.

As intimidating as they are, Dewbacks are only one half of the unit. Trained to work in tandem with the Sandtrooper riding atop them, Dewback and trooper can combine in a number of useful ways. If nothing else, the Sandtrooper carries a shock prod that makes the entire unit’s melee attack a bit stronger. But being astride a massive Dewback also provides a useful vantage point from which a trooper can make powerful ranged attacks—and they have three weapons that give them an option for every situation. Equipping your Sandtrooper with a T-21 blaster rifle or an RT-97C blaster rifle adds a new dimension to the unit, making them deadly from a distance. Alternatively, a CR-24 Flame Rifle enhances the Dewback Rider at close range, helping them uproot any subversive elements tucked behind cover.
