New X-Wing Kits Available From Fantasy Flight

Two new sets are available now for X-Wing. You can head over and pick up the Heralds of Hope Squadron as well as the TIE/rb Heavy. Whether you're fighting for the Resistance or the Empire, you can get some new ships, pilots, upgrades, and more now.

From the article:

The spark of hope has ignited! Now, the Resistance rises to meet the First Order, seeking to break its tyrannical hold over the galaxy!

This Squadron Pack for Star Wars™: X-Wing Second Edition includes iconic heroes such as Poe Dameron and Temmin "Snap" Wexley, featuring new abilities based on their appearance in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. These brave pilots launch into battle in two T-70 X-wing starfighters featuring updated paint schemes and they are joined by even more new Resistance pilots flying an RZ-2 A-wing with an updated paint scheme.

All told, you'll find 10 T-70 X-wing ship cards and 6 RZ-2 A-wing ship cards in this expansion, giving you even more pilots to choose from. Additionally, 25 upgrade cards invite you to further customize your Resistance squadrons, while five Quick Build cards help you get these pilots and upgrades into the fight as fast as possible with convenient preset selections.

The TIE/rb Heavy is one of the largest TIE variants produced for the Galactic Empire and is often assigned to patrol routes where it is expected to fight without the support of a carrier or escorts. Thanks to its robust armor, swiveling laser cannons, and integrated MGK-300-series droid intelligence, this vessel lives up to its nickname: the "Brute."

The TIE/rb Heavy Expansion Pack includes everything you need to add one of these imposing ships to your Galactic Empire squadrons, beginning with a beautifully detailed, pre-painted miniature and a medium plastic base. Four ship cards give you the freedom to choose your pilot, while 12 upgrade cards invite you to customize your ship to fir your needs. Finally, two Quick Build cards offer helpful combinations of pilots and upgrades to get you into the fight right away.
