Fantasy Flight Previews Y-Wing For X-Wing

The other iconic ship for the Rebels, besides the X-Wing, is arguably the Y-Wing. Older, hardier, and about as maneuverable as a sleepy bantha, this rugged fighter still has a place in squadrons. And in the new edition of X-Wing coming from Fantasy Flight, it still has a place on your tabletops. But how will this fighter change? That’s what you get a look at in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Previews TIE Reaper For X-Wing

Not every TIE is a single-seater fighter. The TIE basics allow for all sorts of alternate versions, including things up to shuttles in size. In this case, we have the TIE Reaper. Not as nimble or swift as its smaller cousins, it can still play quite a role in a fight, as we see in this preview for X-Wing from Fantasy Flight.

Fantasy Flight Previews X-Wing For X-Wing

Yeah, I know, that headline seems funky. That was half the fun of writing it. But the X-Wing is the title ship for the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight. So, when a new edition of the game comes out, obviously there’s going to be anticipation about how one of the most iconic ships in all of Star Wars will change. Well, your wait to find out is over.

Android NetRunner Coming to an End

I know we don’t do much in terms of Living Card Games here on TGN. Or not-stand-alone card games, of any form, but still, I wanted to post this one up, as I did when the game was announced. Fantasy Flight Games is closing down their Android: NetRunner game. I’m saddened by this, as NetRunner is my favorite card game that’s existed. And it’s a bit of a could’ve/would’ve/should’ve for me, as I’d not been keeping up with the game as I’d really wanted to. But there was always kind of that thought that I’d jump into it. Well, that probably won’t be the case. Sure, I could pick up cards probably for cheap now, but finding players is always the most difficult thing, and most people aren’t excited to play a dead game.

Friday Snippets

The work week is coming to an end. I don’t know about you, but this week went by faster than last week, despite last week being a short week. I dunno. Time’s weird like that. But even as we go into the weekend (of which I still have 0 plans made), we need to make sure we’re well-fed on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Fantasy Flight Coming Out With Premium Bases For Star Wars: Legion, New Bolt Action Dice Bags Available From Warlord Games, and New Dog Minis Available From Tabletop-Art.

Fantasy Flight Previews Lando’s Falcon For X-Wing

For many of you out there, I’m sure you’ve gone to see the new Solo movie (whether you saw it with other people or not). In it, we get a bunch of background on Star Wars‘ most famous smuggler, along with how he got the iconic ship, The Millennium Falcon. Well, back when Lando had it, it was much different looking. And that version will be making its way to X-Wing tabletops. We get a look at it in this preview (note: if you’ve not seen the movie and are one of those “OMG! If I know even more than just the title of the movie, the whole thing is ruined and my life is OVER!” types, I don’t know if there’s any spoilers about the film, but you’ve been possibly warned. Don’t come cryin’ to me).

Fantasy Flight Announces Heroes of Terrinoth Card Game

Those dungeons aren’t going to delve themselves. Those goblins aren’t going to just stop raiding the local towns. Those monsters aren’t just going to decide they don’t want to smash everything in existence. Those evil wizards aren’t going to suddenly decide to not take over the world. That’s why Terrinoth needs heroes. And that’s just what you’ll become in Heroes of Terrinoth, a new cooperative card game coming from Fantasy Flight Games.

Fantasy Flight Previews 1.4 FD Laser Cannon And E-Web Blaster For Star Wars: Legion

The Battle of Hoth scenes in Star Wars introduced a lot of new elements to the universe. In the opening salvos, we saw the Rebels defending their base using the 1.4 FD Laser Cannon (even as its shot did basically hit an AT-AT in the knee and seemingly do nothing at all). It then blows up. Then, a little later, when the Falcon is trying to take off, we see the Imperials setting up their E-Web blaster. Again, this gets blown away before it really has a chance to do anything. Well, hopefully their on-screen appearances are not indicative of what they’ll do on your Star Wars: Legion battlefields.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Podracing in Star Wars: Destiny

“Objection, your honor! The podrace was pretty cool.”
Generally the only thing that most people can agree on that was cool in the Prequel trilogy for Star Wars, Podracing (that seems to have about a 50% mortality rate per race, which makes you wonder how there’s ever enough racers to hold an event, but that’s beside the point) is coming to Star Wars: Destiny. In this preview, we get a look at some podracers, their pods, and how they will work in the game.

Fantasy Flight Previews Saw’s Renegades Expansion Pack For X-Wing

We all know that a new edition of X-Wing is coming (or, at least, I hope we all know it by now). Well, there’s still stuff coming before that official launch. But what if you want to pick it up? Will you immediately have to get 2nd edition stuff for it as well? Nope! Fantasy Flight is including it in the pack. And, in this preview, we get a look at what it’ll consist of.

Fantasy Flight Previews Squadron Building in X-Wing 2.0

With all the different ships, upgrades, weapons, skills, and other items in X-Wing, there’s seemingly infinite different ways to build your squadron of fighters. But with a new edition comes new options. In this preview of the new edition of the game, Fantasy Flight looks at squadron building and how things have changed, or stayed the same, as they update the game system.

Fantasy Flight Previews Baron Zachareth For Runewars

The kingdoms of man are fighting against elves, undead, and demon-creatures from the wastes. In these times, some morals are lost, or at least, past deeds are glossed over. Such is the case of Baron Zachareth. To some, a saint. To others, a demon (though different from the demon-creatures). Either way, he’s coming to the tabletop for Runewars.

Fantasy Flight Previews Combat in X-Wing 2nd Edition

All the fancy flying and pretty ships don’t mean much if you aren’t trying to blow your opponents out of the sky. X-Wing is getting a new edition, and many aspects of the game are being updated.

In this preview, we get a look at exactly that and see how primary weapons, secondary weapons, turrets, and the Force all come together during these dog fights.

Fantasy Flight Previews Spined Threshers for Runewars

The Runewars previews just keep a-comin’. This time around, we get a look at the Spined Threshers. I mean, I certainly wouldn’t mind some extra mouths. Though having such long tongues right near all those sharp teeth and pinching claws seems like a recipe for a bitten tongue.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Lord Vorun’thul Expansion For Runewars

Anyway, the undead faction for Runewars is getting itself a new vampire in the form of Lord Vorun’thul. You can check him out here, in both his “human” and “bat-man (not Batman)” forms.

Fantasy Flight Announces 42nd Anniversary Edition of Cosmic Encounter

Some games have just been around forever, so it seems. And for many of you gamers out there, Cosmic Encounters has, essentially been around forever. It’s been around as long as you have, at least. Cosmic Encounters is celebrating 42 years as a game and Fantasy Flight is coming out with a new edition.
… and I really hope I don’t have to explain why the number 42 is important in a cosmic standpoint.

Fantasy Flight Previews Movement in Star Wars 2nd Edition

One of the things people noticed when Fantasy Flight started posting previews of the new 2nd edition materials for the X-Wing Miniatures Game was that the maneuver dials looked different. There were a lot more possible choices on them, and instead of green, white, and red, we got blue, white, and red. So, what does the color change mean, and is there more that’s changed? In this preview, we get a look.
