The other day, people were kinda bummed that the new Force Awakens ships had arrived from Fantasy Flight Games, but the new Imperial Assault Carrier wasn’t available. Well, it would seem that the bigger ship just took a little longer to maneuver into place, as it, too, is now available....

Hello there, all you gaming friends out there in gamer-land! Seems for the moment that it’s actually going to be a bit winter-like here in Atlanta. At least for a couple days. No, it’s not like the winters I remember in Chicago, but if we had a winter like that down here, this place would...

Well, it’s Star Wars weekend already. I’ve had friends in both the UK and Brazil see the movie. Don’t worry, I’m not going to post any spoilers (and please, don’t post any, yourself). But if you haven’t been able to see the movie yet, or might not be able to soon, ...

We know that the Empire was more about “quantity” than “quality” when it came to their starfighter designs. Most TIEs didn’t have shields or all that rugged of hulls. As such, a lot of pilots didn’t really make it long enough to be considered “veterans.”...

Sometimes there’s just too much awesome in one package all for a single preview. Considering the Ghost expansion comes with all the crew members that are known for Ghost from the Star Wars cartoon it comes from, in different, applications on the two ships, Fantasy Flight Games couldn’t re...

I ain’t afraid of no Ghosts. But Imperial and Scum & Villainy players may be. But informing yourself is the best way to rid yourself of such fears. Granted, Rebel players are going to be learning all they can about the new Ghost expansion for X-Wing as well. In other words, everyone should...

The next big thing is making its way to the tabletops of X-Wing Miniatures Game players. The Rebels quickly got out of the gate with two epic-scale ships in the form of the Tantiv IV and the Medium Transport. The Imperials finally got on the board with the Raider-Class Star Destroyer. Now they’...

The new Force Awakened starter set for the X-Wing Miniatures Game is a new place for gamers to jump into playing the space-dogfight-combat game. But even if you’ve been playing since the beginning, you may want to think about picking one up. The figures inside are more than just slight resculpt...

The wait is finally over. The Rebels no longer are the only ones that have the huge-scale ships for X-Wing. Imperial players rejoice, as the Imperial Raider is now available at retail outlets. Sure, sure, you might’ve gotten one at Gen Con. But that’s only, like a couple of you. The rest ...

I’ve always been a fan of heavy ordinance. A-10 Warthogs have been my favorite military aircraft for decades (I even had the G.I. Joe version when I was a kid). So when you see the TIE Bomber for those few seconds in Empire Strikes Back, those became my favorite couple of seconds. Well, little ...

The X-Wing is one of the most iconic starships of the Star Wars universe. Heck, it’s the name of the game that Fantasy Flight made when they wanted to have starships fight one-another. In the Star Wars universe, several other starship manufacturers have tried to recreate the success Incom had w...

Bounty hunters… you may not feel you need them (being the scum that they are), but they do tend to get the job done when necessary. In the case of X-Wing, that generally means shooting holes in the enemy’s ships. As the newest faction, the Scum & Villainy group doesn’t have a l...
