The next wave of X-Wing releases is nearly upon us. Though there’s still some time for some previews. This wave has a bit of a focus on non-conventional tactics, particularly when it comes to the firing arcs of you and your opponent. The new TIE has an auxiliary firing arc. The Protectorate fig...

It’s the Saturday before Gen Con. A week from now we’ll be shoulder-deep in the show. Of course, that means this weekend is full of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to get everything done before heading to Indy. But, even with all the brouhaha, there’s tim...

It’s been a scorcher so far this week in the US. Certainly has been here in Atlanta, at least. That heat’s made it rough to go outside for anything. Seems like a good time to stay inside and do some gaming. Or at least get set for some gaming this weekend. But if we’re going [&helli...

I thought a Special Forces TIE was something a Navy Seal wore to a formal occasion. But it’s also a new type of TIE Fighter for the X-Wing Miniatures Game. It’s got an improved sensor array and also a turret for its gun. I’m still not sure how it doesn’t blow its own solar pan...

Star Wars is all about conflict. It’s sort of, y’know, right there in the name. It’s not Star Peaceful Talks Next To A Fireplace, after all. Nearly countless soldiers fought for the Rebel side, looking to free the galaxy from the tyranny of the Empire. If you’d like to be one ...
