What is X-Wing Miniatures?

X-Wing Miniatures is a tactical miniatures game in which two or more players use ships from the Star Wars saga to engage in space combat. Players choose ships belonging to either the Rebel or Imperial faction, their corresponding pilots, and upgrade cards to create unique squads. Each round, the players use vehicle-specific maneuver dials in conjunction with the game's corresponding maneuver templates to reposition each ship in an effort to gain tactical striking positions against enemy ships. The players then roll dice to determine the outcome.

"Control the most advanced starfighters and outstanding pilots in the galaxy! In X-Wing Miniatures Game, you take the role of squad leader and command a group of merciless Imperial or daring Rebel pilots in furious ship-to-ship space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates exciting Star Wars space battles from small engagements of only a couple of crafts, to large conflicts where multiple squadrons clash. Select and equip your ships, pick your crew, plan your attack, and complete your mission."

The game features incredibly detailed pre-painted miniatures and captures the essence of space combat from the Star Wars universe. Games usually involve elimination of an opponent's ships. However, several scenarios with other win conditions are included in different expansions. Before beginning a game, players select their ships and upgrades and develop strategies that will help them achieve their objectives.

HistoryEdit

  • X-Wing Miniatures was officially announced on August 2, 2011, by Fantasy Flight Games. It was first released on September 14, 2012, and is still actively in development. Each core set includes three ships: one X-Wing and two TIE Fighters.
  • Also in September 2012, Wave 1 was released, adding more TIE Fighter and X-Wing pilots as well as two other iconic starfighters from the Star Wars movies.
  • The release of digital dice apps as well as physical dice packs have further supported gameplay.
  • In February 2013 Wave 2 was released, adding additional small fighters as well as larger ships, for both factions.
  • In September 2013 Wave 3 was released, offering additional ships for both factions, including vessels designed to serve in a support capacity.
  • In March 2014 the Imperial Aces expansion pack was released, offering two different alternate paint-schemed TIE Interceptors as well as new pilots.
  • In April 2014 the first of the huge ships, the Rebel Transport, was released, and it included an alternate paint-schemed X-Wing with new pilots.
  • In May 2014 the second huge ship, the Tantive IV, was released. The huge ships introduced the epic gameplay format with 300-point squads. These huge ships diverged from the normal 1:270 scale that had been used up to this point in order to allow for the most realistic inclusion of these ships into the play area without being too cumbersome.
