Raw, Untamed Power

X-Wing™ Waves XII and XIII Are Now Available

“When I found you, I saw raw, untamed power. And beyond that, something truly special.”
  
–Supreme Leader Snoke, Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Five new ships. Five new ways to take your starfighter squadrons to the next level in X-Wing. Whether you’re flying with the Lothal Rebels before the first days of the Galactic Civil War or you’re joining the space battles between the First Order and the Resistance in The Last Jedi, you can expand your options with the five ships from X-Wing Waves XII and XIII!

Five new X-Wing expansions—fully loaded with ordnance and unique upgrades—are now available at your local retailer or online through our webstore:

Resistance Bomber

Like Star Wars fans around the world, you’re thrilled and excited to watch the next installment of the saga—Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Now, you have the chance to play out some of the battles between the First Order and the Resistance on your tabletop before the movie even comes out, with the Resistance Bomber Expansion Pack.

B/SF-17 heavy bombers—otherwise known as “Resistance Bombers”—are flown by the brave Resistance pilots who use these craft to strike at the heart of the First Order. Packed with destructive ordnance and protected by rotating turrets, a B/SF-17 bomber can turn the tide of a battle by deterring enemy forces with mines and annihilating key targets with bombs.

With two bomb upgrade slots, a B/SF-17 heavy bomber is a powerful tool for you to control the battlefield, forcing your opponent to fly differently if he wants to avoid your unique armaments. And of course, if you choose to equip your bombers with Ordnance Silos, you won’t be running out of bombs any time soon, allowing you to saturate the battlefield with firepower throughout the game. You can see the full combat capabilities of the Resistance Bomber in our “Turn the Tide of Battle” preview.

Containing a single beautifully painted B/SF-17 heavy bomber miniature, and all of the dials, tokens, ship cards, and upgrade cards that you need to add this ship to your Resistance fleets, the Resistance Bomber Expansion Pack is the perfect addition to your squadrons.

TIE Silencer

The Resistance Bomber Expansion Pack gives you the chance to fly with the Resistance, but your sympathies may lie with the First Order instead. Fortunately, the First Order brings a new type of TIE to the battlefield with the TIE Silencer Expansion Pack, giving you your chance to see how the ship flies on your table before you see The Last Jedi in theaters.

Only the First Order’s most elite fly the TIE/vn Space Superiority Fighter, a high-performance craft as demanding of its pilots as it was deadly to its enemies. Only pilots with the highest aptitude and advanced training can control these ships as they speed through space, weaving past obstacles to tear apart specific targets with precise fire.

Such a challenging fighter to fly is a natural fit for a pilot who’s skilled in the dark side of the Force—and the First Order has none other than Kylo Ren, the grandson of Anakin Skywalker. With powerful lasers, a natural agility, and powerful systems, the TIE silencer has already established a reputation for its ability to cut enemy squadrons to shreds. This jet-black fighter will be a terrifying sight for any Resistance squadron leader to see, and you can see it in action in our preview article, “Space Superiority.”

You can pick up your copy of the TIE Silencer Expansion Pack today to add a fully-painted TIE silencer miniature to your squadrons. With the arsenal of cards, tokens, and dials that you need to serve the First Order, this expansion is an essential addition for any servant of the dark side.

Alpha­-class Star Wing

Since it first appeared in the Star Wars: X-Wing computer game from LucasArts, the Alpha-class star wing has been a fan favorite. Now, this starship is finally making its debut in the X-Wing Miniatures Game as an impressively durable and versatile Imperial starfighter.

As the Empire’s first widely deployed ship that carried shields and a hyperdrive, the Alpha-class star wing was known as a heavily armed and dangerous fighter—thought it could be somewhat limited in its maneuverability. Still, the star wing more than made up for any lack of maneuverability with its potential for delivering a devastating alpha strike at the beginning of the game.

An Alpha-class star wing has the ability to naturally load both missile and torpedo upgrades, and if you choose to equip it with the XG-1 Assault Configuration, you can offer your star wing two cannon upgrade slots as well. Such an explosive array of upgrades is not something that any squadron leader should take lightly, and you have the chance to add some of this raw firepower to your Imperial squadrons starting today. For more on the star wing’s full combat capability, read our preview entitled “Indiscriminate Devastation.

With a fully-painted miniature, a wide array of pilots and upgrades, plus the tokens and dials that you need to bring your ship to life on the tabletop, the Alpha-class Star Wing Expansion Pack is an undeniable boon for any Imperial starfighter squadron.

M12-L Kimogila Fighter

The galaxy’s Scum and Villany do not go wanting with this latest release of X-Wing ships. Whether they’re fighting for an organized cartel or just looking for a fighter that packs a punch on its own, they find an ideal candidate for their squadrons in this expansion.

Primarily flown by enforcers of the Hutt kajidics and other criminal organizations, the M12-L Kimogila fighter is dreaded by spacers across the Outer Rim for its ordnance capacity and the withering torrents of coordinated fire that it can unleash. When you pick up your copies of the M12-L Kimogila Fighter Expansion Pack today, you gain access to that fighter in your own Scum and Villainy squadrons.

Unlike any other fighter yet released in the game, the M12-L Kimogila fighter rewards you for charging straight at your opponent’s squadron and catching enemy ships in the bullseye firing arc. If you are able to bullseye an enemy ship, you guarantee that they cannot easily slip away from the fusillade of laser fire that you unleash. You can read more about the M12-L Kimogila fighter in our article, “Bullseye!

The M12-L Kimogila Fighter Expansion Pack invites you to play with a fully-painted miniature and all of the cards, tokens, and dials that make it such an important addition to Scum and Villainy hangars across the galaxy.

Phantom II

From its initial appearance in the first season of Star Wars Rebels, the Phantom has been a valuable tool, docking with the Ghost and providing a second starship for the Lothal Rebels to use in their fight against the Empire. In the third season of Star Wars Rebels, that ship is replaced with the Phantom II.

Recovered by the Spectres from a Clone Wars-era military base, the Phantom II is a heavily modified Sheathipede-class shuttle with upgraded weapons and a custom docking system compatible with the Ghost. With a little love from the crew of the Ghost, the Phantom II can become a part of your Rebel squadron with the power to forge a legend as large as the original Phantom.

More than any other Rebel ship, the Phantom II enables you to coordinate your squadron tactics, ensuring that your ships can fly together and execute your strategy perfectly. We took a much closer look at the Phantom II in our preview, “Coordinate Your Attack.

The Phantom II Expansion Pack is the perfect tool to add this new ship to your Rebel squadrons, with a beautifully painted Phantom II miniature, plus a wealth of cards, tokens, and the maneuver dial that you need to bring this ship fully into your games of X-Wing.

Five New Ships

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is almost in theaters—and you have the chance to fly some of the ships on your tabletop before you see them on the silver screen.
