Dune Strider

(image)

The power of any Dunefolk assault is inhibited by one major drawback: organized Dunefolk forces tend to be rather slow. Because of this, enemy forces often have the ability to regroup and call upon reinforcements, in which case a second assault becomes much more difficult. To combat this, Dune Striders exchange their rudimentary slings with heavy bolas, allowing them to slow retreating lines from the side and prevent a clean escape. The same tactic can be applied in the opposite scenario of a Dunefolk retreat; an advancing army can be hampered, allowing injured Dunefolk warriors time to recuperate. The danger of such a tactic is that despite their elusiveness, Striders are fairly fragile in direct combat and are easily taken down if left exposed.
