Tatooine Tour of duty.
The 173rd Mechanised Assault Group find themselves in the action.
About this creation
Shortly after the space battle above the planet of Tatooine and the consequent search of the planet's deserts, Imperial forces in the area were strengthened.
The 173rd Mechanised Assault Group was stationed at the Imperial garrison base in the principal spaceport Mos Eisley. While patrolling the Jundland Wastes the Imperial forces strayed onto sacred land and wells of the Tusken People. This trespass provoked an immediate violent uprising. What was unusual about the campaign undertaken by the Tusken People was that they brought the fighting to the edge of the urban area, as well as their usual terrain of desert and canyons.
These pictures of the patrols and combat were captured by Mark IV patrol droids.

   A well aimed hit on a joint of the lead AT-AT brings it to a holt and signals to other Tuskens to attack.
The AT-AT's guns are no use at this range and it is under threat of being over run. It is the quick actions of the support AT-ST that bring the situation under control.

   The rest of the convoy moves off leaving the damaged AT-AT to be seviced by the engineers with the AT-RV.

   As the AT-RV lifts the joint armour back into place, a AT-ST keeps a watchful eye on the desert. Its crew wonder where the next attack will come from...

I see how he makes the heavy blaster. It's simple. He used the back shooter from the snow speeder and a simple stem piece. Great job.

Very nice use of sand/dirt. You position your renegade insergence unit in a way that makes them look like theyre about to strike. Very lifelike, I like that. As always, great job!

Those brave Imperials fighting, while them obnoxious rebels pamper that spoiled princess! Good job. "What's the last thing to go through a rebel's head when he crashes into a cruiser?" "What?" "Their R2 unit!"
