I swear this show is just screaming by this year. It’s already the end of Day 3. Today will be the last day for Gen Con 2016. As usual for Gen Con Saturday, it was a whirlwind of activity. There was roaming the hall, taking photos most of the morning and early afternoon. Then there […]...

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...

If you’ve played the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight Games, you know that having your ships within Range 1, and within the firing arc of your opponent’s ships isn’t generally the best place to be. I mean, sure, you want your opponent’s ships to be there, but you gen...

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...

“Waste not. Want not.” The Rebel Alliance certainly does their best to not waste resources. They really can’t afford to, as they’ve gotta be sneaky in their war against the Empire. That includes finding old ships and updating them. Such is the case with the ARC-170, which will...

While Imperial starfighters aren’t generally known for being rugged, and thus bringing their pilots home after every mission, those who are skilled enough can achieve the title “Veteran.” These seasoned pilots can bring a lot to an engagement. That’s just what you get in the I...

It’s Friday, everyone. Keep calm and we’ll get through this just fine and then move onward into the bliss that is the Weekend. My gaming is going to start early, as when I get out of here, I’m going to an Irish Pub nearby for some bangers and mash. Afterward, it’s back to my p...

Time once more to hop into the cockpit of your fighters and head into space to take on the enemy. But why head out in “the same old thing” when you can head out for the furball in something new? Well, soon you’ll get a set of 4 new ships for the X-Wing Miniatures Game […]...

Much like the Assault Carriers also coming out in this new wave of ships for Star Wars: Armada, no enemy admiral is going to exclaim in terror the worry of a broadsides attack from a Medium Transport. But that doesn’t mean they’re not worth bringing to the battle. What they lack in pure, ...

TIE fighters aren’t known for their durability. Even those with a bit more armor and some shields aren’t as rugged as an X-Wing or Y-Wing. So the chances of making it through enough battles to make it to “veteran” status are fairly low. However, those that do make it there usu...

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.”...

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...
