inquisitor's TIE

The new Inquisitor’s TIE is headed for X-Wing and it will shake up the game for a LOT of ships.

 

Here’s the latest from FFG on the upcoming Wave 8 Inquisitor’s TIE from the REBELS cartoon:

Inquisitor’s TIE Expansion Pack $14.95

“Personally tasked by Darth Vader to eliminate any surviving Jedi Knights, the Inquisitor had access to the Empire’s most advanced technologies, including the TIE Advanced prototype, a groundbreaking improvement over the TIE fighter designs of its time. In X-Wing™, this lethal starfighter appears as a carefully detailed and pre-painted miniature at 1/270 scale, along with four ship cards, including one for the Inquisitor himself. Additionally, the Inquisitor’s TIE Expansion Pack contains five upgrades, a maneuver dial, and all the tokens you need to launch into space and pursue your foes through the stars!”

Here’s the ship’s maneuver dial.  She’s a fast one, with a lot of green and almost no red.

Now some of the included pilots:

16 points isn’t bad for that kind of defense and choice of actions!

And he’s going to defending a lot…

So he’s got 3 attack dice all the time – NICE!

Now onto the new cards that are sure to shake up the game:

A nice little perk for the ship…

Interesting, now you can have gain target lock efficiency for swarm lists. One guy hits, everyone locks!

And this is the BIG ONE.  This card is clearly aimed at improving the power and use of munitions.  Now for 0 points, any missile, or torpedo will automatically hit, or crit if the ship has a 3 attack value.  So watch out for those X-wings now!

 

I think the Empire has a winner – how about you?
