Dune Men

Sent by: sleighr
Abilities: The non-affiliated workers hired to operate spice harvesters and refineries, some Dune Men have turned to the dangerous life of mercenary work to pursue higher incomes.
The primary use of Dune Men is for the harvesting of spice, therefore they have intimate knowledge of the workings of harvesters. A single Dune Man can be used to permanently capture an enemy harvester for its hosting House, if it doesn't squash him first.
The intimate knowledge of the workings of harvesters also makes it easy for Dune Men to destroy them, a single Dune Man can enter and set a harvester for self-destruction as a second resort, without injury to him but at a loss of spice and equipment to the enemy.
Appearance: Infantry unit, brown legs with top in House colour.
Other Info: Unarmed.
Smugglers can produce Dune Men in Barracks, other Houses can only buy them through the Spaceport.
Captured Smugglers Barracks can produce Dune Men.
