Fantasy Flight Games announce X-Wing Wave 3 ships

One of the announcements eagerly awaited by many was to take place on ‘Star Wars Day’ – May 4th 2013, during Fantasy Flight Games gaming weekend: The announcement of what was going to be the composition of Wave 3 ships for the X-Wing Miniatures Game.

star warsI think the announcement would have met with most fans approval – the TIE-Bomber and B-Wing really were ‘must haves’, and I was very pleasantly surprised to see the Lambda shuttle appear – suddenly a whole number of scenarios from the Star Wars: X-Wing computer game become available.

I must admit to knowing very little about the HWK-290 – this is the first ship to appear that is not in any of the original three Star Wars films, but comes from the post-Return of the Jedi canon.

In the same way as I wasn’t overly bothered about Slave-1, I don’t think I will be overly bothered with the HWK-290. But I can see my model collection growing to own multiples of these other ships in the coming months.

The only downside to this announcement is the fact that we are going have to wait until the Autumn before they are available.

  1. really pleased to see the B-wing coming out as you say it opens up a lot of scenarios from the old PC game

    • Agreed, although I’m probably more excited about the Lambda shuttle. It opens a whole host of scenario where you have to ‘capture the shuttle’ and brings in the Y-Wing Ion Cannon much more.

      It looks to be a ‘big’ ship, so is likely to be priced about the same as the Millennium Falcon, but I can see the need for at least 2 or 3. Anyone remember the ‘Rescue of Admiral Ackbar’ scenario from X-Wing? 5 shuttles required!

  2. Not bought any of the wave 2 ships yet, as much as I want Slave 1 and the Falcon they are just a bit too expensive.
    B wing is a different matter.
