Fantasy Flight Previews TIE Reaper For X-Wing

When you think of a TIE fighter, you think primarily of something light and quick, a single-seater fighter with high maneuverability and a distinct lack of thick hull and shield. That, however, is not what you get with the TIE Reaper. It's a troop transport that is ready to take Stormtroopers right into the thick of battle. But even up in the air, it's got some fight in it. Get a preview of it for the X-Wing Minis Game here from Fantasy Flight.




From the post:

The Galactic Empire rules through fear. From the expressionless uniformity of its legions of Stormtroopers to its swarms of TIE fighters filling the skies, the Empire relies on terror to keep the systems under its control in line. The TIE reaper continues this tradition with its menacing attack profile and fearsome firepower. When one of these ships enters a battle, what’s on the inside is just as terrifying as its powerful laser cannons and thick armor plating.

Known as a high-performance transport, the Reaper is capable of carrying specialized soldiers and other crew members into the thick of a fight. Every crew upgrade that you add to this ship has the ability to enhance the Reaper’s lethality in its own way, sowing fear in all those who would fly against the might of the Empire.

The TIE Reaper Expansion Pack redefines terror for Imperial X-Wing™ squadrons. With a highly-detailed TIE reaper miniature, this expansion includes the ship and upgrade cards that let you strike fear into the heart of your opponent.
