Star Wars: X-Wing – Jango Fett’s Slave I Preview
Jango Fett is joining the tabletop in Star Wars: X-Wing with a new ship for the Separatist Alliance.
The Firespray-class Patrol Craft is one of the most unique ships in Star Wars. It was made famous by a certain bounty hunter. And now we’re getting a look at his dad’s ship! It’s Jango Fett’s version of Slave I and we’ve got a preview today!
“A bounty hunter is only as good as their ship. These vessels serve many functions, from tracking targets to engaging in all-out combat and the Slave I gives Jango Fett all the tools he needs to hunt his marks and, if they won’t come quietly, bring them down on the spot. As flexible as it is formidable, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most feared ships in the galaxy.”
Meet the Pilots
Up first is the Separatist Racketeer. The basic statline isn’t so much different than other Firespray-class ships. It still has the front and rear firing arcs each with a 3 die attack. 2 agility dice for defensive moves, and 6 hull with 4 shields. The action bar isn’t too shabby either.
Next up, we have to take a look at Jango Fett – it’s his ship after-all! Jango’s abilities messes with ships that are focusing. If you can slow roll them, you can line up your shots – that should be too hard to do thank to the ship’s size and dial either.
Here we have his clone-son Boba Fett. His ability allows him to flip a blank to a focus result if there are no other friendly ships at range 0-2. He’s such a lone wolf cub.
Zam Wesell is the last pilot teased and she has a unique set of skills and isn’t afraid to use them.
The Firespray-class has plenty of room for some additional crew members and that means we’re getting most of the pilots as crew upgrades, too.
Hondo Ohnaka allows for some Coordinate/jamming shenanigans. Perfect if you’re looking for a bit of extra utility in your squadron.
Boba Fett can also tag along as a gunner which will up your chances of converting those dice into hits.
It’s not really Jango Fett’s ship until you add the title into the mix.
That’s how you get a gunner slot, by the way. The ship also has access to an Illicit slot which you can load out with False Transponder Codes:
Jango Fett? More like Lonestar with all those ways to jam.
Originally produced for law enforcement purposes by Kuat Systems Engineering, the Firespray-class patrol craft is also a favorite of bounty hunters like Jango Fett, who use its robust chassis to add their own weaponry and modifications.
This expansion pack lets you put your personal touch on your own Firespray-class patrol craft painted in the colors of Jango Fett’s Slave I. In addition to the miniature, you’ll also find four ship cards in this expansion, including the infamous Jango Fett himself, along with 13 upgrade cards that let you customize your ship to fit your strategy.
Look for Jango Fett and company November 27th!
