Devoted worshipers of the God-Emperor, the Tallarn Desert Raiders are highly skilled in desert warfare and mobile guerrilla tactics. On the battlefield, Tallarn Desert Raiders are evasive and opportunist, delivering swift hit-and-run attacks on their unsuspecting foes.

I have completed the second half of the Tallarn Desert Raiders squad, which includes the Rocket Launcher Team and three Desert Raiders with lasguns. As with the previous group of Tallarn Desert Raiders (please see parts 4, 5 and 6), I used a tri-colour desert camouflage pattern for the combat fatigues and painted the desert raiders’ head scarves (shemagh) in a range of whites, khakis and greens.
