They smell worse on the inside, apparently, so there’s a good reason to make sure your tauntauns don’t get shot to bits. FFG previews the Tauntaun Riders Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion, with two Tauntaun Rider miniatures with DL-44 blaster pistols. Nice.

“And I thought they smelled bad on the outside.”
–Han Solo, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

On an icy planet like Hoth, even the most advanced technology can’t save you from the subzero temperatures. The Rebel Alliance learned this lesson well when they had difficulty operating their repulsorlift speeders on the frigid planet. In their place, the Rebels turned to creatures naturally suited to roaming the windswept plains of Hoth: Tauntauns.

These sure-footed snow lizards can swiftly navigate the treacherous environments common to the backwater planets where the Alliance hides its bases, making Tauntauns perfect for patrol duty around Echo Base and beyond. Soon, you’ll be able to make your Rebel armies even more mobile with the Tauntaun Riders Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion!

This expansion brings a new support unit to aid your Rebel forces on the battlefields of the Galactic Civil War. Two unique Tauntaun Rider miniatures relentlessly charge into battle, harrying the enemy with fire from their DL-44 blaster pistols or attacking with their Tauntauns’ horns and hind claws. Already well-equipped for living in harsh climates, three upgrade cards invite you to make your Tauntaun Riders even more hearty with new training or comms systems.
