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.

Fantasy Flight Previews TIE Advanced For X-Wing

In the first Star Wars movie, there's only two Imperial fighters that we see. We get the standard TIE Fighter and the special, advanced version that Darth Vader flies. That's the TIE Advanced. It's got shields and a hyperdrive, along with many other advancements (ooooh, now I get the name). But Vader's wasn't the only one produced. You could have a whole squadron of them, including in the X-Wing Miniatures Game. We get a look at the 2nd edition version of the ship in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Previews the TIE Fighter For X-Wing

Besides the Star Destroyer, the most iconic ship in the entire Imperial fleet has got to be the standard TIE fighter, or TIE/ln for you that prefer such nomenclature. The "eyeball" was the main ship used by Imperial fighter pilots. Fast, maneuverable, and easy to build, what they lacked in shields, they made up for in being able to swarm the enemy. With the new edition of X-Wing coming out from Fantasy Flight, it's time to take a look at how this ship will be changing.

Fantasy Flight Posts New Lando's Falcon Preview For X-Wing

Having not seen Solo, I didn't realize that the front of the Millennium Falcon was supposed to carry an escape pod. Seems like it'd be really hard to get there from the bridge in an emergency, but waddyagonnado? In this preview for X-Wing, we get a look of the Falcon from early in its life, along with the escape pod that'd gone on the front.

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 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 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.
