X-Wing 2nd Edition Miniatures Mining Guild TIE Expansion Pack

The Mining Guild’s collaboration with the Empire gives it access to state-of-the-art Sienar Fleet Systems technology, including modified TIE/ln fighters. The removal of two solar panels reduces the craft’s power output in exchange for a much-needed boost to peripheral vision when weaving through treacherous asteroid fields.

Within the Mining Guild TIE Expansion Pack, you’ll find everything you need to supplement your own mining operations and keep the profits flowing. Six ship cards—including four unique pilots—are ready to take the controls of the beautifully detailed, fully assembled Modified TIE/ln Fighter miniature. Meanwhile, five upgrade cards invite you to further customize your Mining Guild TIE to suit the unique needs of your Scum squadron. Rounding out this expansion are a maneuver dial and all the tokens you need to experience this classic starfighter in a whole new way.

“Those TIEs have been modified. They’re not Imperial.”
–Sabine Wren, Star Wars: Rebels

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce the Mining Guild TIE Expansion Pack as part of Wave II for X-Wing™ Second Edition!

The original TIE/ln design has served as the basis for countless variations serving many purposes, even those outside of Imperial demands. Thanks to their close collaboration with the Empire, the Mining Guild has access to state-of-the-art Sienar Fleet Systems technology, including their own version of this iconic starfighter. The result is a unique take on the TIE design, ideally suited for the Mining Guild’s operations and unlocking new tactical opportunities for your Scum and Villainy squadrons.

The Mining Guild TIE Expansion Pack is set to debut alongside the first Resistance and First Order expansions with Wave II for X-Wing Second Edition in the fourth quarter of 2018. Read on for more information about what twists the Mining Guild TIE brings to your Scum squadrons!

Corporate Control

In the service of the Empire, the countless TIE variations have a single purpose: combat. From fighters that directly engage other starships to bombers that drop a variety of deadly devices throughout the engagement zone, the mass-produced TIE variants are designed to help the Empire dominate space in every aspect of battle. In the hands of a corporate entity like the Mining Guild, however, the TIE takes on a wholly different role.

Rather than launching offensive operations against Rebel targets and overwhelming them with wave after wave of ships, the Mining Guild cares more about protecting its own interests. These concerns carry over into the design of the guild’s version of the TIE. Most noticeably, Mining Guild TIEs have two panels removed from their stabilizers, granting a much-needed boost to their pilots’ peripheral vision when weaving through the treacherous asteroid fields where they normally operate. These Notched Stabilizers, built into every Mining Guild TIE, give these ships the useful ability to ignore asteroids while moving, letting them freely perform risky maneuvers without the threat of damage from these obstacles!

But this increased visibility comes at the cost of a reduced power output. As a result, the Mining Guild TIE loses some of the trademark speed that the ship is known for. While the ship can execute all the same maneuvers as its Imperial counterpart, the decrease in power means that pushing the ship to its farthest limits is a bit more difficult. To manage stress, then, Mining Guild pilots prefer to use the ship’s maneuverability to sharply cut between asteroids and gain a superior position on enemy ships.

 
The Mining Guild TIE’s Notched Stabilizers let them ignore obstacles while moving!

Their ship might not boast quite the same performance as the Imperial version, but the corporate pilots who man the Mining Guild TIE are undoubtedly more creative when it comes to the strategies they employ in a dogfight. True to form, these Scum pilots deploy all manner of dirty tricks to put the opposing squadron at a disadvantage. For example, while he defends or performs an attack, Captain Seevor can force the enemy ship to take a jam token—so long as he has avoided being caught in their bullseye arc.

We’ll take a look at everything included in the Mining Guild TIE Expansion Pack in a future preview!

Defend Your Assets

The demand for raw materials has never been higher. If you’re going to properly protect your investments, you’re going to need a starfighter that’s up to the task. Take on any threat with a new take on a classic design!

Look for the Mining Guild TIE Expansion Pack  (SWZ23) to release in the fourth quarter of 2018

The second upcoming Resistance ship expansion marks a brand-new ship’s first entrance to the fast-paced dogfights of X-Wing. The main interceptor of the Resistance, the RZ-2 A-wing is the natural evolution of its predecessor used by the Rebel Alliance. With several field-tested refinements integrated into its design, the new generation of A-wing fighters boasts incredible maneuverability to go along with blazingly fast speed, which makes mastering this craft a challenge worthy of the greatest aces.  

Resistance pilots are always looking for ways to push the RZ-2 to the limits of its performance, and much of the challenge of flying the ship in combat is keeping it safe. While the RZ-2 A-wing’s three defense dice and ability to evade incoming attacks make it a hard target to hit, its redesigned swivel mounts deter pursuers by allowing pilots to target enemies behind them. One of the ship’s many improvements over earlier models, these built-in Refined Gyrostabilizers provide the RZ-2 with a turret arc that can rotate exclusively between the front and back of the ship. This gives it some much needed flexibility in where it fires, but intrepid pilots must carefully choose where to direct their fire or miss out on opportunities elsewhere.

If its reversible cannons don’t provide enough of a defensive boon, the RZ-2 A-wing can always rely on the five upgrade cards included in the RZ-2 A-Wing Expansion Pack for help. For example, the ship is already highly maneuverable, but adding some Primed Thrusters makes it even more so. If you have two or fewer stress tokens, this tech upgrade allows you to quickly barrel roll or boost away from incoming fire, even while stressed.

With six ship cards—including four unique pilots—and five upgrade cards, plus the maneuver dial and tokens included in this expansion pack, the RZ-2 A-Wing Expansion Pack gives you everything you need to stand toe-to-toe with the First Order’s best!

We’ll take a closer look at everything included in this expansion in a future preview!
