Comfortable in the harshest of environments, the Desert Raider has joined the King’s quest. Though unassuming when out of his element, the Desert Raider is a potent unit on the Shadow’s side of the board.
The Desert Raider is a rather weak Light unit, unless he makes it to the Badlands or the Desert. Slip him forward early to reap the benefits of his +2 combat bonus and wreck the enemy lines. He also shines when getting to the Desert or Badlands later in the game, stymieing the progress of the usually weaker back units of the Shadow player.
