Ride out of the desert atop a mighty bantha with the Bantha Rider Villain Pack for Imperial Assault! This massive beast can trample your enemies as the Tusken Raider rider takes potshots at more distant targets. Along with this sculpted plastic figure, you’ll encounter a new Agenda set that allows the Tusken Raiders to terrorise the Rebel heroes over the course of a campaign. Alternatively, you can hire the Bantha Rider to fight alongside your Tusken Raiders in a skirmish game. With six brand-new Command cards, the Bantha Rider Villain Pack offers new tactical surprises for every skirmish game.
The Bantha Rider is a new addition for the Mercenaries faction, and whether you command the Tusken Raider rider to fire from long-range or simply send the bantha charging into your opponent’s formation, this figure can wreak havoc wherever it turns.
Bantha Riders are naturally terrifying for the heroes to face in a campaign game, both during the new side mission that features the Bantha Rider or during another mission. The Bantha Rider has no defence dice, but it does offer a massive amount of health and dangerous abilities. It’s much easier to disrupt the heroes’ plan when you send a Bantha Rider charging into their midst. The Bantha Rider can also turn the tide of a skirmish game in your favour. The Bantha Rider can deal a massive amount of damage each turn, spread across multiple figures, which may prove crippling if your opponent’s army depends on a large number of figures. For both campaigns and skirmishes, this dangerous creature can help the Mercenaries shatter their enemies’ strike teams.
The Tusken Raiders have long harried the moisture farmers of Tatooine, riding out of the Jundland Wastes to steal, kill, and destroy. With the Bantha Rider Villain Pack for Imperial Assault, you can hire these lawless raiders to swell the forces of the Mercenaries faction in a skirmish or join the Imperial player in a campaign!
Like other Ally Packs and Villain Packs, the Bantha Rider Villain Pack offers much more than a detailed plastic figure. You'll find new missions for your campaigns and skirmishes within this expansion alongside new Agendas, Command cards, Deployment cards, and Rewards. Unlike many Imperial Assault Villain Packs however, the Bantha Rider Villain Pack has no corresponding larger expansion, meaning that the Bantha Rider enters Imperial Assault for the first time with this figure pack.
This is not a standalone product. A copy of the Imperial Assault Core Set is required to play. Includes missions that require the Twin Shadows expansion.
