A Legend Reborn

Preview the Major Vonreg's TIE Expansion Pack for Star Wars: X-Wing

 

swz62_box_left.png

"I can't believe the kid's still in one piece. This TIE is a real ace."
   –Poe Dameron, Star Wars: Resistance

Sometimes a single pilot becomes so closely associated with a ship, they come to define it. Such was the case with Soontir Fel, whose exploits in the TIE/in Interceptor during the Galactic Civil War became the stuff of legend. With the First Order taking up the mantle of the Empire, it is only appropriate that Major Baron Elrik Vonreg continue this tradition, putting his own stamp on an advanced version of Fel’s signature starfighter.

 

Vonreg’s vision guided the transformation of the Empire’s TIE/in Interceptor into the First Order’s TIE/ba Interceptor, a one-of-a-kind precise and lethal craft from Sienar-Jaemus Fleet Systems. Soon, you’ll have the opportunity to add one of these fearsome ships to your own First Order squadrons with the Major Vonreg’s TIE Expansion Pack for Star Wars™: X-Wing!

Within this expansion, you’ll find a beautifully painted TIE/ba Interceptor miniature accompanied by all the cards and tokens you need to incorporate it into your First Order squadrons. You'll find four ship cards—including three limited pilots—and six upgrade cards that give you the chance to make further improvements to your ship. Finally, two Quick Build cards offer convenient combinations of ship and upgrade cards that let you get your TIE/ba into the fight right away.

Join us today as we take a closer look at everything in the Major Vonreg’s TIE Expansion Pack!

The Legacy of the Empire

During the days of the Empire, the TIE/in Interceptor was a marvel of starfighter engineering. Combining superior maneuverability with increased firepower from basic TIE designs, it’s no wonder that the Interceptor was the vessel of choice for the Empire’s elite aces. Incorporating shields and projectile launchers into its design, the First Order’s version improves this iconic ship in every way.   

The TIE/ba Interceptor’s many features make it a formidable ship, even when it’s flown by less skilled First Order Provocateurs.  The ship’s Fine-Tuned Thrusters alone give its pilot a great deal of tactical flexibility, allowing them to reduce their agility with a strain token or roll one fewer attack die with a new deplete token in order to perform a lock or barrel roll action after fully executing a maneuver.

swz62_card_major-vonreg.png But, just like the TIE/in, the ship is perhaps most effective when it’s in the hands of aces like Major Vonreg.  This Red Baron weaponizes strain and deplete tokens, forcing a ship in his bullseye arc to gain one of these tokens during the System Phase. Unless that ship immediately performs a blue maneuver to remove these tokens, it must suffer the consequences until it defends or attacks!

Although not quite as skilled as Vonreg, “Holo” has just as much flexibility with tokens. This pilot must transfer one of their tokens to another friendly ship nearby at the start of the Engagement Phase, allowing them to shed a stress, strain, deplete, or even lock token to another member of the squadron at a key moment. Alternatively, they can also choose to bolster one of their wingmates with a critical focus or evade token when they need it most.

While “Ember” cannot generate or transfer tokens, they can control how a target uses them. More specifically, “Ember” prevents a defender from spending focus or calculate tokens while a damaged friendly ship is flying close, forcing opponents to break up their formations and potentially disrupting any synergy they gained from flying close together.

The TIE/ba Interceptor has many built-in advantages, of course, but that doesn’t mean the ship can’t be improved. The Major Vonreg’s TIE Expansion Pack features a number of upgrade cards that can enhance this starfighter and other First Order ships. Some Mag-Pulse Warheads, for example, only enhance the natural ability of TIE/ba pilots to put enemies at a disadvantage.

swz62_a1_diagram2.jpg
"Holo" transfers the disarm token they gained from their Deuterium Power Cells to Major Vonreg, allowing "Holo" to attack the Resistance Transport at range 1!

At the same time, the TIE/ba is still a fragile ship, even with shields. Equipping it with some Deuterium Power Cells can help it stay in the fight for longer. The ability to recover shields is useful for any TIE/ba pilot, but “Holo” can take particular advantage of this upgrade by transferring away the disarm token and staying just as deadly as ever.

The First Order carries on the Proud Tradition of the Empire and its pilots strive to live up to the standard of Imperial legends. As such, they can maintain their focus while they have two or fewer stress tokens. But the First Order must be careful how they rely on this heritage. An enemy can spend a focus token or suffer a critical damage after defending to force a pilot to flip this card, making all subsequent focus actions more difficult.

Become an Ace

The First Order may have been relegated to the Unknown Regions, but with aces like Major Vonreg and "Holo" at the controls of the TIE/ba Interceptor, they're sure to reclaim the glory of the Empire.

Announcing Three Expansions for Star Wars: X-Wing

 

swz69-71_boxes.png

"Gunship, come in. Hawk, we need an evac in the south tower."
   –Anakin Skywalker, Star Wars: The Clone Wars

 

As war rages across the Star Wars™ galaxy, battles can take place from a planet’s surface to beyond its atmosphere. While some starfighters focus their attention on the fight in space, others cross boundaries, supporting their troops on the ground while dueling with other fighters. Now, new ships are on their way to help their squadrons fight on multiple fronts.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce three new expansions for Star Wars™: X-Wing:

With powerful new abilities and a wealth of customization options, these versatile ships open exciting new strategies for your squadrons. New Clone Wars-era fighters diversify the ships available to both sides, while the agents of the First Order plot the end of the Resistance from a new shuttle. Read on for more information on these expansions!

swz69_ship_art.png

Xi-class Light Shuttle Expansion Pack

The First Order lurks in the shadowy corners of the galaxy, slowly spreading its insidious influence. Connecting these secretive enclaves is the Xi-class Light Shuttle, which conveys First Order VIPs quickly but surreptitiously from base to base. In addition to transports, these swift shuttles also make ideal command craft, directing forces in raids before slipping away into the depths of space.

Many of the First Order’s most nefarious operatives unfold their schemes from a Xi-class Light Shuttle, including the devious provocateur Agent Terex. A particularly cold and calculating member of the First Order Security Bureau, Terex becomes even more of a menace once he’s been outfitted with a cyborg construct.

swz69_xi-class-shuttle_overview_01.png

Within this expansion, you’ll find a beautifully detailed Xi-class Light Shuttle miniature, along with everything you need to launch it on your own secret mission, including a medium plastic base and two medium ship tokens. Four ship cards let you dispatch some of the First Order’s most elite agents to do your bidding while fourteen upgrade cards let you assign additional crew members to the ship and outfit it with new technology. We’ll take a look at everything included in this expansion in a future preview!

swz70_ship_art.png

LAAT/i Gunship Expansion Pack

A durable workhorse capable of functioning in space assaults and atmospheric battles alike, the LAAT/i Gunship transports Republic troops to battlefronts on planets besieged by the Separatists. Like the clone troopers who man it, the LAAT/i Gunship is a reliable ship renowned for its ability to get the job done.

Beyond their troop-carrying capabilities, these versatile ships are ideal platforms for Jedi Knights like Plo Koon to support Republic squadrons with their mastery of the Force. Whether making precision drops of clone troopers on contested worlds, supporting Republic formations with interlaced fire in atmospheric battles, or engaging starfighters in the depths of space, the LAAT/i can be outfitted for nearly any role or battlefield.

swz70_republic-attack-gunship_overview_0

The LAAT/i Gunship Expansion Pack contains everything you need to add one of these sturdy ships to your Galactic Republic squadrons, including a finely detailed LAAT/i Gunship miniature, four ship cards, fourteen upgrade cards, and two quick build cards. We’ll take a look at everything included in this expansion in a future preview!

swz71_ship_art.png

HMP Droid Gunship Expansion Pack

The Separatist Alliance’s droid starfighters are known for their ruthlessness in battle, but perhaps none are more ruthless than the HMP Droid Gunship. Armed with ordnance and protected by ray shields, these droid gunships mercilessly devastate Republic infantry formations and starfighters with equal proficiency.

The HMP gunship’s presence invokes fear thanks to predatory droid intelligence and an unpredictable capacity to strafe targets with its sweeping array of laser cannons and devastating weapons like Multi-Missile Pods. Although they were a late-war development for the Confederacy of Independent Systems, their specialized repulsors open up new possibilities for your squadrons.

swz71_hmp-droid-gunship_overview_01.png

The HMP Droid Gunship Expansion Pack unlocks new possibilities with a beautifully detailed HMP Droid Gunship miniature and six ship cards, each bringing their own programming and protocols to battle. Your droid gunship can be further modified to your exact specifications with eight upgrade cards, or you can follow the recommendations of three quick build cards to get your gunship into battle as quickly as possible. We’ll take a look at everything included in this expansion in a future preview!

Support Your Squad

Starfighters are needed to fight on multiple fronts. Add ships that can get the job done no matter the mission with these new expansions for X-Wing!
