X-Wing Wave 3!

Fantasy Flight Games have shown the 3rd wave of ships for the X-Wing miniatures game.
Not much is known about what they do yet apart from what is in the pictures and to be honest I don't know a huge amount about Star Wars, I just really like the game, so I will leave you the little bit about each ship that is posted on the FFG site.

HWK-290 Expansion Pack

Designed by Corellian Engineering Corporation to resemble a bird in flight, the “hawk” series excels in its role as a personal transport. The HWK-290 Expansion Pack comes with one detailed miniature at 1/270 scale, a manoeuvre dial, all necessary tokens, six upgrades, and four pilots, including the renowned Kyle Katarn. Each HWK-290 provides a wide range of support options for your squad and can be outfitted with both a turret weapon and crew member.

B-Wing Expansion Pack

Bring the B-wing to your games of X-Wing with the B-Wing Expansion Pack. The B-wing’s heavy weapons array and resilient shielding quickly solidified it as the Alliance’s most formidable assault fighter. Accordingly, the B-Wing Expansion Pack packs a mighty punch! The B-wing can wield as many as two torpedoes, as well as a cannon, and it can be equipped with a system upgrade for precision targeting. The B-Wing Expansion Pack contains a stunning miniature at 1/270 scale, a manoeuvre dial, all necessary tokens, four ship cards, and a devastating arsenal of five upgrade cards.

Lambda-class Shuttle Expansion Pack

Noted for its tri-wing design, the Lambda-class shuttle served a critical role as a light utility craft in the Imperial Navy. Now you can use this utilitarian ship to strengthen your Imperial squad for X-Wing! The Lambda–class Shuttle Expansion Pack includes one large-base Lambda-class shuttle miniature at 1/270 scale, its manoeuvre dial, all necessary tokens, four ship cards, and a whopping twelve upgrades, which afford Imperial players an astonishing level of customisation and control of their squads.

TIE Bomber Expansion Pack

While not as agile or fast as other TIE variants, the TIE bomber is capable of delivering an astonishing payload, and the TIE Bomber Expansion Pack carries enough firepower to destroy virtually any enemy target. Each TIE bomber is capable of carrying two torpedoes, two missiles, and one bomb. Accordingly, the expansion’s five upgrade cards present you with a wide array of armaments, including the punishing Proton Bombs. You’ll also find a striking miniature, a manoeuvre dial, all necessary tokens, and four talented new pilots.

You can see more about the cards included in these packs in the X-Wing News (link) section of the Fantasy Flight website.

I know I will be picking up at least 2 each of the TIE Bombers and Lambda shuttle. What about you?

  1. They certainly are nice looking ships I recognise them all from the films except the Hawk. I'm assuming thats either from books or games perhaps?
