Fantasy Flight Games Previews TIE Silencer for X-Wing

The ubiquitous starfighter for the Empire is the TIE. The standard form is almost entirely convertible into new forms. There’s many different varieties out there because of it. This has gone forward into the new era as the New Order continues to use TIE variants. One preferred by Kylo Ren is the TIE Silencer. Soon, you’ll be able to hit the skies with this ship. But so you can see the specs before you enter the furball, here’s a preview.

New Releases and Pre-Orders Available From Fantasy Flight Games

Everyone over at Fantasy Flight has apparently been busy. They’ve got a whole host of new releases available, along with new pre-orders. If you’re looking for the new Runewars figures, they’ve got ’em. If you’re looking for the new A Game of Thrones Catan, they’ve got it. If you’re looking for their new Legacy of Dragonholt game, they’ve got it. And if you want to pick up the next wave of X-Wing ships, they’ve got ’em… coming soon, but you can put your name down on the list to get ’em.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews the Phantom II For X-Wing

The Phantom II, as a fighter… is lame. That’s just the nature of it. It’s not a fighter craft, it’s a shuttle. You’re not going to be getting a lot of kills with it. And that’s ok. That’s not what it’s in your squadron for. What it’s there for is the new Coordinate Action that it adds.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews the M12-L Kimogila For X-Wing

“I’ve got you right where I want you! Bullseye!” A somewhat cliche’d line, sure, but with one of X-Wing’s newest ships, you might find yourself saying just that. The M12-L Kimogila has a new firing arc called the Bullseye arc. It’s very restrictive, being just a narrow band directly in front of the ship. But if you can manage to line up a perfect shot, well, there’s all sorts of bonuses you can get, depending on how you load out your fighter. Check out this X-Wing preview from Fantasy Flight.

Midweek Snippets

Alright. Playtime’s over. All the spooky kiddie stuff is done with. Time to get the real holiday prep going. Thanksgiving is a mere 4 weeks and 1 day away. This is not a drill. Prep work starts now. I need to start collecting together gear and ingredients for all the fantastic things I’m going to be making. Best to sample all the bite-sized gaming stories currently available.

Today on the platter we have: Aenor Minis New Releases Available To Order and Cargo Bay X-Wing Transport System Up On Kickstarter.

Guns for Hire Set Now Available For X-Wing

Shoom! Shoom! Shoom! Pewpewpew!
… Everyone makes space-ship noises when playing X-Wing, right? It’s not just me? Well, whether you make the noises or not (yes, I know that in space there wouldn’t be any noises, but still), there’s some new ships available to bulk up your squadron… if you’re a Scum & Villainy player, anyway. The Guns for Hire set is now available.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Alpha-class Star Wing For X-Wing

One of the first video games that I played heavily were the X-Wing/TIE Fighter games. I played the bloody hell out of them (when not playing Mechwarrior 2, that is). One of the few ships on the Imperial side that actually had some shields was the Alpha-Class Star Wing. It was kinda crazy to actually take a hit and not just immediately explode. Though, relatively, the thing did handle like a tugboat in the world of jet-skis. Anyway, the ship is making its way to X-Wing tabletops, and you can get a look at how it’ll work in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces New X-Wing Ships

A new Star Wars movie is soon to hit theaters. That means new ships. They’ve always been one of my favorite aspects of the universe. What can I say? I’m a starfighter junkie. And feeding my addiction is Fantasy Flight Games. They’re showing off a couple new ships they will be bringing to the battlestarfields of X-Wing.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Next Wave of X-Wing Miniatures

While Star Wars Legion might be the Star Wars game that everyone’s talking about right now, Fantasy Flight certainly isn’t going to neglect their other Star Wars games. That includes X-Wing. They have announced the next wave of ships that will be available for the game. And one of these takes me down memory lane, since I remember using it when playing TIE Fighter a couple decades ago on my computer.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts New Preview From Guns For Hire Expansion for X-Wing

Many gamers love tweaking their army lists to get the most out of them. They look for any points-saving measure they can find. Well, the Guns for Hire expansion for the X-Wing Miniatures Game gives Scum & Villainy players several new options to do just that. One such is the Vaksai title. It reduces the costs of upgrades to the ship it’s on.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Star Viper Mk.II For X-Wing

I remember first encountering the Star Viper while playing Shadows of the Empire on my N64. Heck, I recently re-found my console and game and might just pop that in this evening. I’ve also fought against them in the X-Wing Miniatures Game. In that case, Scum & Villainy players should take notice, as a new expansion pack is bringing plenty of new options for them. In this preview, we get a look at those coming in the Guns for Hire pack.
Continue reading

Wave XI Now Available For X-Wing

Three new ships are available for the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight. This is because Wave XI of ships is out now in their webshop as well as your LGS (well, hopefully at your LGS, anyway). They’re the new Auzituck Gunship, the Scurrg H-6 Bomber, and the TIE Aggressor.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Scurrg H-6 Bomber For X-Wing

One thing about many secondary weapons in the X-Wing Miniatures Game is that most of them run out after just a single use. There’s an upgrade where you can get a second shot with your missiles or bombs, but still, that’s it. Well, with the upcoming release of the Scurrg H-6 Bomber, another new upgrade card is coming out that will allow you an infinite amount of bombs during the game.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Previews Auzituck Gunship For X-Wing

“Let the wookie win.” Well, you probably don’t want to let that extend to “ships piloted by wookies or used around the planet of Kashyyk” because then you might not be winning too many more games of X-Wing, as Fantasy Flight is coming out with the Auzituck Gunship. They’ve posted up a preview of what you can expect in the set.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Releases C-ROC Cruiser For X-Wing Miniatures Game

The Scum and Villainy Faction is getting their first huge-sized ship for the X-Wing Miniatures Game. They can now play along with the likes of the Corellian Corvette and that Imperial Cruiser. More than just a big ship, the set also includes upgrades you can use in any mode of X-Wing play.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Guns for Hire Expansion for X-Wing

Just because you’re out doing things just for credits doesn’t mean you can’t be one of the best of the best out there. I mean, if you’re good, you get paid more, right? So it’s with that in mind that Fantasy Flight is coming out with a new elite pack for their X-Wing Miniatures Game. It’s called Guns for Hire and they’ve posted up a little preview.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews TIE Aggressor For X-Wing

Another TIE variant is making its way to your tabletops in the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight. This time, it’s the TIE Aggressor. This isn’t the first time we’ve see a TIE with a turret on it, to be fair. But it will give you some more options for your squadrons.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Jabba The Hutt For X-Wing

Man, I need to lose weight. I’m starting to feel like a Hutt, as opposed to just a polar bear. But as far as I know, I don’t take up 2 crew slots on a starfighter, yet. Jabba does. Yes, the crime lord is coming to X-Wing. No, he’s not got his own starfighter or anything like that. He’s a crew member (well, technically two crew members) that can greatly increase the efficiency of your other upgrades.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Next Wave For X-Wing Miniatures Game

So, we’re getting some new big space ships from Fantasy Flight. But what about those that like the single-seater ships? You’re not being left out, as Fantasy Flight has announced the next wave of X-Wing Miniatures ships.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews The M3-A Interceptor From the C-ROC Cruiser Expansion

Scum & Villainy is getting their first huge ship in the form of the C-ROC Cruiser. But these big ships always come with an extra ship tagging along. So while the focus might be on the big guy, you’d be remiss to skip over the little fella and the different pilots and upgrades it’ll be bringing to the battle.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews C-ROC Cruiser For X-Wing

The Rebels and Imperials both have a pair of the huge-sized ships for X-Wing (still need to get me a Tantiv-IV just to have around). Well, Scum & Villainy players won’t have to be envious for too much longer. They are getting their own huge ship, the C-ROC Cruiser. We get a look inside it in this preview.
Continue reading

X-Wing Miniatures Wave 10 Now Available

Wave X of X-Wing is now available.
I don’t know why, but I just like how that looks.
Anyway, there’s a whole new set of ships that you can add to your squadrons for the X-Wing Miniatures Game. Grab your flight suit and helmet and get out there.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews C-ROC Cruiser For X-Wing

It was quite a big deal when the Rebels got their first huge-sized ship for X-Wing. I’ve still been meaning to pick up a Tantiv-IV, just because it’s a cool model, even though I don’t regularly play X-Wing anymore. A while later, the Imperials got their epic ship. But the game has 3 factions! What about Scum & Villainy!? Well, their wait is almost over, as Fantasy Flight Games has announced they’re getting the C-ROC Cruiser.

Latest X-Wing Releases Available Now From Fantasy Flight Games

A lot of my friends went and saw Rogue One last night. I know a lot more that will see it tonight/over the weekend. Personally, I’m gonna let the crowds die down a little bit before I go… I think they’ve almost died down enough to go see The Force Awakens. But that doesn’t mean that I have to wait to get a couple of ships from the movie and integrate them into my X-Wing Squadrons. The latest releases are now available.

Monday Terrain Corner

Well, the weekend is over. Mine didn’t quite turn out like I’d hoped. Didn’t get a chance to do any gaming, but did have a chance to do some cooking. This year’s fruitcake is a success, I’d say. Just need to get more people to give it a try.
But anyway, let’s get straight over to making your gaming tables look as good as possible.

Today we have: Two New Star Wars Play Mats Available From Fantasy Flight Games,City Ruins Map Available From Pwork Wargame, Heroic Maps – Flottederoi Frozen Harbour Now Available, and More battlefield terrain at Micro Art Studio store.

Fantasy Flight Previews TIE Striker For X-Wing

With new movies entering the Star Wars lexicon comes new ships to add to your squadron for X-Wing from Fantasy Flight Games. One such new fighter is the TIE Striker, seen in the upcoming Rogue One movie. You’ll actually be able to add this one to your collection before you see it on the silver screen. And you can get a preview of it now on your not-so-silver screen on your computer/phone/tablet.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Previews the U-Wing For X-Wing

There’s a lot of ships in the Star Wars universe with movable parts. X-Wings and B-Wings first come to mind, but there are many others. Until now, all the figures for the X-Wing Miniatures Game didn’t have movable parts. Well, with the release of the U-Wing (I’m going to name mine Patrick), that will change. And it’s not just aesthetics. There are different rules for when the wings are out for maneuvering or folded for landing.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews the Quadjumper For X-Wing

The Quadjumper is basically a space tugboat. It’s not pretty. It’s not fast. But that lack of speed actually makes it one of the most maneuverable ships in X-Wing. Sure, we’ve seen a ship that can stop. But the Quadjumper can do one better. It can go in reverse. Too bad there’s no sound in space, so you don’t get to hear that, “beep! beep! beep!” sound as it backs up…. Or maybe that’s a good thing.
Continue reading

Heroes of the Resistance Pack Available For X-Wing

The Force Awakens continues the Star Wars saga for a new generation. Though the Empire was defeated, the First Order is looking to retake control. As such, the Resistance is fighting tooth and claw against them. Heroes new and old are joining forces to fight. And you can represent that with the Heroes of the Resistance Pack for X-Wing, which is now available.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Upsilon-Class Shuttle for X-Wing

That title might not sound all that thrilling. “Oooh, a shuttle. What fun… not!” Because, let’s face it, very few people come to the Star Wars universe to look at the shuttles. They’re not as glitzy or glamorous as the starfighters. But they certainly do still have their part to play in the overall narrative, shuttling important players around. So while the Upsilon-Class Shuttle might not be the flashiest ship in your X-Wing squadron, it can still play a vital role, as we see in this preview of its set from Fantasy Flight Games.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Sabine’s TIE Fighter For X-Wing

Say “Imperial Starship” and most people are going to either picture the Imperial Star Destroyer or the TIE Fighter. Well, we don’t have a stolen ISD for Armada yet, but soon we’ll have a stolen TIE Fighter for X-Wing. It comes in the form of Sabine’s TIE Fighter, and we get a look at it and the upgrades it comes with in this preview.
Continue reading

New X-Wing and Mansions of Madness Releases Available From Fantasy Flight Games

Sort of two ends of the spectrum for this batch of releases from Fantasy Flight Games. On one side, you’ve got starships flying around in a galaxy far, far away. On the other, you’ve got investigators searching through an old house. Well, both involve “hokey religions” anyway. There’s new releases for both the X-Wing Miniatures Game as well as Mansions of Madness available from Fantasy Flight Games.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews The T-70 Upgrades From Heroes of the Resistance

I really should get around to watching The Force Awakens at some point. Then I can see what all the fuss is about with these new cards for the X-Wing Miniatures Game coming in Heroes of the Resistance. We’ve seen what sort of things are designed for the Falcon (though you can use some of the cards with other ships, like the crew and upgrades). This time around, we get a look at what goes with the T-70.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Millennium Falcon From Heroes of the Resistance For X-Wing

The Heroes of the Resistance set for the X-Wing Miniatures Game gives us a pair of ships that’ve already seen time on the tabletops, but with a new look and new upgrades to make it an entirely new set of options for your games. Today’s preview is arguably the most iconic ship from the series, and in The Force Awakens, gets itself a new pilot and crew. We’re talking about the Millennium Falcon.
