Fantasy Flight Previews Tantiv IV Expansion for X-Wing

The first scene in Star Wars was the highly dramatic capture of the Tantiv IV by the Imperial forces. Hopefully, when you play your own Tantiv IV in X-Wing, that same thing doesn't happen (but let me know when they release an X-Wing scale Star Destroyer, would you?). With the update to 2nd Edition, the ship's getting an overhaul. In this preview, you can get yourselve a look-see. I know that if I buy one, it's pretty much my only chance to ever get a Corvette.

From the post:

In conflicts across the Star Wars™galaxy, it’s not uncommon to see ships originally built for one purpose refitted as warships. This is certainly the case with the Corellian Engineering Corporation’s CR90 corvette. First designed as a diplomatic vessel, the CR90 was valued by both the Galactic Republic and the Rebel Alliance for its ability to rapidly respond to incidents across the galaxy.

With its powerful engines propelling it, the CR90 can enter combat with the fastest of starfighters, bringing an array of deadly weaponry that can turn the tides of battle. Soon, you can bolster your Star Wars™: X-Wing squadrons with one of these huge ships with the Tantive IV Expansion Pack!

Within this expansion, you’ll find one beautifully painted CR90 Corellian corvette miniature, along with all the cards and tokens you need to add it to your Rebel Alliance or Galactic Republic squadrons. In addition to outfitting your CR90 with deadly weaponry, you can place some of the Rebellion’s best tactical minds in command of the ship. Meanwhile, a variety of teams and cargo help give the ship an even more specialized role in your squadron. Finally, five title upgrade cards can turn your CR90 into one of the Rebellion’s most iconic ships and give it even more special abilities.

Players who already own a CR90 miniature from the first edition of X-Wing can also find the cards and tokens in this expansion pack in the Huge Ship Conversion Kit. Read on as we take a closer look at the Tantive IV Expansion Pack!
