It's not just a brand of whiskey. Fireball is the name of a starship in the Star Wars universe. Primarily created as a racing ship, it's been fitted with some weapons to make it a fighter (Spike would be proud). Soon, it'll be racing its way onto tabletops in X-Wing from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at just what you can expect from this "explosion with wings."
From the post:
Some starship pilots make a name for themselves in the heat of battle, showcasing their skills as they shoot down enemy fighters. Others take a different path entirely, beginning their careers as racers, working around the clock to keep their cobbled-together ships in the sky long enough to cross the finish line.
Whatever route they take, these pilots need nerves of steel if they’re to find success. A rare few —such as Kazuda Xiono—live in both worlds, building a reputation as both a racer and a starfighter pilot. Soon, you can help Xiono on this journey to become the best pilot in the galaxy with the Fireball Expansion Pack for Star Wars™: X-Wing!
This expansion features a beautifully detailed, pre-painted Fireball miniature that can bring its incredible speed to your Resistance squadrons. In addition to this miniature, you'll also find four ship cards representing the brave pilots willing to fly this explosion with wings. Finally, seven upgrade cards invite you to add your own improvements to the ship while two Quick Build cards offer useful pre-defined combinations of pilots and upgrades to get your ship into the battle.
Join us today as we take a closer look at what you’ll find in the Fireball Expansion Pack!
