With the new edition of X-Wing, the Resistance has become its own faction. No longer just "future Rebels," they have struck out on their own to carve their own niche in the game.

Fantasy Flight Previews New Wookie Releases For Star Wars: Legion

Part of me wanted to channel the Star Wars Holiday Special and have the opening to this story be nothing but grunts, hoots, roars, and howls, but I eventually decided against it. Instead, I'll just let you know that Fantasy Flight has announced a pair of wookie releases for Star Wars: Legion. One's the Wookie Warriors unit, and the other is the most-famous wookie there is, (oooooooooooh) Chewbacca! (What a wookie!)

New X-Wing Releases Announced By Fantasy Flight

With the new edition of the X-Wing Miniatures Game coming, the Resistance and the New Order are breaking off into their own factions. No longer simply part of the Rebels and the Imperials, respectively, these new factions are in need of a bit of a leg-up in defining what makes them unique and not just a sub-set of a previously larger set of ships. Fantasy Flight has new Conversion Kits coming that'll help you sort that all out. Also, a new Scum & Villainy variant of the TIE is up for preview.

Midweek Snippets

It's August. And I know that this month is still summer, but... I mean, they're already selling Reese's Pumpkins at my Kroger (and have for 2 weeks now). I've got the doors and windows open because it's only supposed to get into the upper 70s here today, and I've put on my Type O Negative station on Pandora. It's autumn, as far as I'm concerned. And as the season for tricks and treats gets started (for me, anyway), let's get you some bite-sized gaming stories as well.

Today on the platter we have: Get a Free Mystery D20 Pin From Kraken Dice, Brigade Models Releases New Squadron Commander Models, and New Captured Princess Model Available From Brother Vinni.
