The X-Wing Miniatures Game will soon be making its way into the past. Fantasy Flight is taking the game to the Republic era. We've seen a bit of what the Separatists are up to with their droid fighters. But who is protecting the Republic itself? That's what we get a look at in this preview.
From the website:
The Galactic Republic is crumbling. Under constant assault from the fledgling Separatist Alliance and the dastardly General Grievous, the once-unified Republic has been splintered by chaos, tyranny, and fear. Despite the turmoil, brave Jedi Knights continue to staunchly support democracy, commanding legions of clone troopers to defend the Republic.
To counter the Separatist’s suffocating swarms of droid starfighters, the Jedi enter battle in the Delta-7 Aethersprite, a starfighter specifically designed to use the Jedi's Force-enhanced reflexes to the fullest. Meanwhile, their dedicated clone pilots support them from the controls of nimble V-19 Torrents.
As the ship-to-ship space battles of X-Wing™ enter the Clone Wars for the first time, you’ll soon have the chance to put both of these classic starfighters to the test with the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack. Featuring two V-19 Torrent miniatures and one Delta-7 Aethersprite miniature, as well as a complete suite of upgrade cards, this Squadron Pack is the perfect place to begin building your Galactic Republic squadrons, no matter if you’re a seasoned X-Wing veteran or you just purchased the Core Set and you're looking to expand.
But before you start outfitting your ships with upgrades, you’ll want to choose who’s flying. Within the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack, you’ll find an array of ship cards—five for the Delta-7 Aethersprite and nine for the V-19 Torrent—that give you the freedom to build the squadron that fits your strategy. Whether you’re looking to assemble a crack squad of legendary Jedi Knights, put together a motley crew of clone troopers, or a mixture of the two, join us today as examine the pilots included in the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack!
