Fantasy Flight Previews Mining Guild TIE For X-Wing

While most of the time when you think of a TIE Fighter, you're thinking of the Empire, they're not the only faction to use the cheap and nimble ship. For X-Wing, the Scum & Villainy faction is getting their own version of the TIE, brought in by the Miner's Guild. In this preview, we get a look at how it works.

From the website:

Allying yourself with the Empire has many benefits. In addition to the copious profits the Mining Guild reaps from working with the Empire to harvest natural resources throughout the galaxy, it also receives its own complement of TIE fighters and other Imperial weaponry. Distinguished by their bold yellow paint scheme, these TIEs further set themselves apart from their Imperial counterparts with a notch cut in their stabilizers to improve visibility.

The result of these modifications is a TIE uniquely suited to meet the Mining Guild’s needs. Hugging tight to asteroids, these TIEs swoop into action whenever the Mining Guild’s operations are threatened. When it's released as part of the second wave of expansions for X-Wing, you’ll have the chance to add your own Mining Guild TIE to your Scum and Villainy squadrons with the Mining Guild TIE Expansion Pack.

This expansion contains everything you need to supplement your Scum and Villainy squadrons with one of these nimble fighters. Alongside the beautifully painted Mining Guild TIE miniature featuring the Mining Guild’s distinct paint scheme, you’ll find six ship cards, with four unique pilots ready to protect the Mining Guild’s profits. Your Mining Guild TIE can be further modified with five upgrade cards, while two Quick Build cards provide predefined combinations of pilots and upgrades for you to test all of the ship’s capabilities.
