New X-wing Miniatures Expansion

Fantasy Flight Games has announced their latest expansion in their popular X-wing Miniatures Game. This release includes the ARC-170, Special Forces TIE Fighter, Protectorate Starfighter and Shadow Caster.

Between these four expansions, you will find zero turrets. Instead, you will find two auxiliary firing arcs, one mobile firing arc, and a starfighter with zero shields… whose pilots practice flying straight at their foes. And there is plenty more to this wave than just its ships. You will also meet Poe’s mother, discover new First Order tech, welcome a handful of Mandalorians to the Scum faction, and gain the ability to fly Sabine Wren as a Scum bounty hunter.

Look for Wave IX and its expansions to arrive at retailers late in the third quarter of 2016.
