Star Wars: X-Wing Wave III has released! Join Adam and Drake as we take a look at what to expect in the 3 largest of the expansions.

Star Wars: X-Wing is a tabletop miniatures game where 2 players go head to head with small squadrons, hoping to wipe out the other side. The main draw (in this humble writer’s opinion) is building your lists. This latest wave of expansion boxes offer tons of new ships, upgrades, weapons and everything else!

With tons of new options and bits, this expansion wave is super to have something for every X-Wing player.

Servants of Strife Squadron Pack$39.95 – Available Now

War! The Separatist Alliance has driven a spike into the heart of the galaxy, splintering the once-unified worlds with choas, tyranny, and fear. At the heart of this offensive is the dastardly General Grievous, commanding endless legions of droid fighters. 

Swarms of networked Vulture-class fighters commanded by tactical droids strike at innocent worlds, forcing the Republic on the defensive. All the while, Grievous slinks through the shadows in his customized Belbullab-22 Starfighter; hunting the Jedi at every turn. 

This Squadron Pack contains everything you need to add one Belbullab-22 Starfighter and two Vulture-class Droid Fighter ships to your games of X-Wing, including new ship and upgrade cards, three maneuver dials, and an array of tokens.

Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack$39.95 – Available Now

War! The Galactic Republic reels from the blow dealt by the the fledgling Separatist Alliance. But even in this age of uncertainty and disunion, heroes arise. Legendary Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi valiantly leads dedicated clone pilots into battle against the forces of tyranny and chaos in the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack for X-Wing!

This pack gives you everything you need to begin building your Galactic Republic squadrons, including one Delta-7 Aethersprite miniature and two V-19 Torrent miniatures. The chosen interceptor of many Jedi, the Delta-7 allows them to use their Force-enhanced reflexes to the fullest. Behind them, clone pilots cover them from their V-19 Torrents with coordinated fire, tight formation flying, and salvoes of missilies. In addition to the miniatures, this Squadron Pack gives you the chance to further explore the potential of the Force with several new Force upgrade cards. Meanwhile, a wealth of other upgrade cards—including reprints of many common neutral upgrade cards—provide a wealth of options for customizing your squadrons. 

Sith Infiltrator Expansion Pack$39.95 – Available Now

The Sith operate in the shadows. As they unfold their dark machinations across the galaxy, they need a ship that matches their nefarious purposes. Casting a menacing shadow as it cuts across the skies, the Sith Infiltrator is the perfect choice to carry the agents of Darth Sidious on their dark missions and into the battles of X-Wing.

With the Sith Infiltrator Expansion Pack, you can use the experimental cloaking device, devastating firepower, and advanced systems of one of these ships to deliver vicious surgical strikes before vanishing into the void. In addition to the finely detailed and fully painted Sith Infiltrator miniature, you’ll find a collection of five ship cards, including Darth Maul himself, twenty upgrade cards that help you fully utilize the ship’s systems, and all the tokens and maneuver dials you need to launch your own secret missions.
