New Miniatures for X-Wing

I keep hearing how Fantasy Flight Games’ X-Wing is a massive, massive success.

The first miniatures that came with the game looked a bit grubby to me (judging solely from internet pictures). Fantasy Flight keeps releasing new miniatures all the time, and every new wave is looking better than the last one. Maybe I should give this game a try?

Anyhow, here are preview pics for “Wave 3″ via Flickr, including the Tie-Bomber, the Lambda Class Shuttle, the B-Wing and the Moldy Crow  from the Dark Forces games and comic books.

#5 – Thoughts?

I am still reluctant to jump into pre-painted things. These don’t look nearly as good as really well-painted miniatures. However, they do look a lot better than my painted miniatures.

Given how little time I have to paint my toy soldiers these days, maybe I should give it a try?

Have you played Fantasy Flight’s X-Wing? If yes, what did you think of it? What do you think of these new flyers?

Update: Fantasy Flight Games’ official preview for these new X-Wing miniatures is now up.

The HWK-290™ Expansion Pack, Lambda-class Shuttle™ Expansion Pack, B-Wing™ Expansion Pack, and TIE Bomber™ Expansion Pack are scheduled to arrive in the third quarter of 2013. Each of these expansions comes with a detailed miniature starship, accurately rendered at the same 1/270 scale as the game’s other ships (as always, we worked closely with Lucasfilm Ltd. to ensure the correct sizes of each ship), and includes multiple ship cards, upgrades, a maneuver dial, and all necessary tokens.

    I highly recommend it. It’s an excellent, fun, fast game and the miniatures look fantastic on the table. And who can resist starfighting with the Millenium Falcon anyway?

    it is a fun game, and they are some of the best pre-painted minis I have seen
