A new Star Wars movie is soon to hit theaters. That means new ships. They’ve always been one of my favorite aspects of the universe. What can I say? I’m a starfighter junkie. And feeding my addiction is Fantasy Flight Games. They’re showing off a couple new ships they will be bringi...

While Star Wars Legion might be the Star Wars game that everyone’s talking about right now, Fantasy Flight certainly isn’t going to neglect their other Star Wars games. That includes X-Wing. They have announced the next wave of ships that will be available for the game. And one of these t...

Many gamers love tweaking their army lists to get the most out of them. They look for any points-saving measure they can find. Well, the Guns for Hire expansion for the X-Wing Miniatures Game gives Scum & Villainy players several new options to do just that. One such is the Vaksai title. It redu...

I remember first encountering the Star Viper while playing Shadows of the Empire on my N64. Heck, I recently re-found my console and game and might just pop that in this evening. I’ve also fought against them in the X-Wing Miniatures Game. In that case, Scum & Villainy players should take ...

Three new ships are available for the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight. This is because Wave XI of ships is out now in their webshop as well as your LGS (well, hopefully at your LGS, anyway). They’re the new Auzituck Gunship, the Scurrg H-6 Bomber, and the TIE Aggressor....

One thing about many secondary weapons in the X-Wing Miniatures Game is that most of them run out after just a single use. There’s an upgrade where you can get a second shot with your missiles or bombs, but still, that’s it. Well, with the upcoming release of the Scurrg H-6 Bomber, anothe...

“Let the wookie win.” Well, you probably don’t want to let that extend to “ships piloted by wookies or used around the planet of Kashyyk” because then you might not be winning too many more games of X-Wing, as Fantasy Flight is coming out with the Auzituck Gunship. They&...

The Scum and Villainy Faction is getting their first huge-sized ship for the X-Wing Miniatures Game. They can now play along with the likes of the Corellian Corvette and that Imperial Cruiser. More than just a big ship, the set also includes upgrades you can use in any mode of X-Wing play....

Just because you’re out doing things just for credits doesn’t mean you can’t be one of the best of the best out there. I mean, if you’re good, you get paid more, right? So it’s with that in mind that Fantasy Flight is coming out with a new elite pack for their X-Wing Min...

Another TIE variant is making its way to your tabletops in the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight. This time, it’s the TIE Aggressor. This isn’t the first time we’ve see a TIE with a turret on it, to be fair. But it will give you some more options for your squadrons....

Man, I need to lose weight. I’m starting to feel like a Hutt, as opposed to just a polar bear. But as far as I know, I don’t take up 2 crew slots on a starfighter, yet. Jabba does. Yes, the crime lord is coming to X-Wing. No, he’s not got his own starfighter or […]...

Scum & Villainy is getting their first huge ship in the form of the C-ROC Cruiser. But these big ships always come with an extra ship tagging along. So while the focus might be on the big guy, you’d be remiss to skip over the little fella and the different pilots and upgrades it’ll b...

The Rebels and Imperials both have a pair of the huge-sized ships for X-Wing (still need to get me a Tantiv-IV just to have around). Well, Scum & Villainy players won’t have to be envious for too much longer. They are getting their own huge ship, the C-ROC Cruiser. We get a look inside it [...

It was quite a big deal when the Rebels got their first huge-sized ship for X-Wing. I’ve still been meaning to pick up a Tantiv-IV, just because it’s a cool model, even though I don’t regularly play X-Wing anymore. A while later, the Imperials got their epic ship. But the game has 3...

A lot of my friends went and saw Rogue One last night. I know a lot more that will see it tonight/over the weekend. Personally, I’m gonna let the crowds die down a little bit before I go… I think they’ve almost died down enough to go see The Force Awakens. But that doesn’t mea...

Well, the weekend is over. Mine didn’t quite turn out like I’d hoped. Didn’t get a chance to do any gaming, but did have a chance to do some cooking. This year’s fruitcake is a success, I’d say. Just need to get more people to give it a try. But anyway, let’s get s...

There’s a lot of ships in the Star Wars universe with movable parts. X-Wings and B-Wings first come to mind, but there are many others. Until now, all the figures for the X-Wing Miniatures Game didn’t have movable parts. Well, with the release of the U-Wing (I’m going to name mine P...

The Quadjumper is basically a space tugboat. It’s not pretty. It’s not fast. But that lack of speed actually makes it one of the most maneuverable ships in X-Wing. Sure, we’ve seen a ship that can stop. But the Quadjumper can do one better. It can go in reverse. Too bad there’...

The Force Awakens continues the Star Wars saga for a new generation. Though the Empire was defeated, the First Order is looking to retake control. As such, the Resistance is fighting tooth and claw against them. Heroes new and old are joining forces to fight. And you can represent that with the Heroe...

That title might not sound all that thrilling. “Oooh, a shuttle. What fun… not!” Because, let’s face it, very few people come to the Star Wars universe to look at the shuttles. They’re not as glitzy or glamorous as the starfighters. But they certainly do still have their...

Say “Imperial Starship” and most people are going to either picture the Imperial Star Destroyer or the TIE Fighter. Well, we don’t have a stolen ISD for Armada yet, but soon we’ll have a stolen TIE Fighter for X-Wing. It comes in the form of Sabine’s TIE Fighter, and we ...

Sort of two ends of the spectrum for this batch of releases from Fantasy Flight Games. On one side, you’ve got starships flying around in a galaxy far, far away. On the other, you’ve got investigators searching through an old house. Well, both involve “hokey religions” anyway....

If you’ve played the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight Games, you know that having your ships within Range 1, and within the firing arc of your opponent’s ships isn’t generally the best place to be. I mean, sure, you want your opponent’s ships to be there, but you gen...

I thought a Special Forces TIE was something a Navy Seal wore to a formal occasion. But it’s also a new type of TIE Fighter for the X-Wing Miniatures Game. It’s got an improved sensor array and also a turret for its gun. I’m still not sure how it doesn’t blow its own solar pan...

“Waste not. Want not.” The Rebel Alliance certainly does their best to not waste resources. They really can’t afford to, as they’ve gotta be sneaky in their war against the Empire. That includes finding old ships and updating them. Such is the case with the ARC-170, which will...

While Imperial starfighters aren’t generally known for being rugged, and thus bringing their pilots home after every mission, those who are skilled enough can achieve the title “Veteran.” These seasoned pilots can bring a lot to an engagement. That’s just what you get in the I...
