Fantasy Flight Games preview the TIE/fo Fighter Expansion Pack for X-Wing – this comes with one painted miniature, twelve ship cards, five upgrade cards, four Quick Build cards, and tokens. It’s out in the 4th Quarter; I was going to include a ‘your First Order of business’ joke here, but I’m sure I’ve done that one before.
“You and your friends are doomed. We will wipe your filth from the galaxy.”
–General Hux, Star Wars: The Last Jedi
It is a new era in the Star Wars galaxy. Emerging from the far corners of space, the First Order is on a campaign of conquest, threatening to destroy everything that has been built in the wake of the Empire’s collapse. Leading the charge is a familiar starfighter.
Once emblematic of the Empire, the TIE fighter design has been adopted by the First Order in its bid to retake the galaxy from the New Republic. This new breed of TIE fighter may share a resemblance to old Imperial fighters, but it features a number of improvements that give it an identity all its own. The TIE/fo fighter continues to help define the First Order as it becomes a separate faction in the intense dogfights of X-Wing™!
Pairing the trademark speed and maneuverability of its namesake with enhanced defensive capabilities, the TIE/fo can hit the Resistance where it counts. You can start forming your own squadron of these surprisingly lethal fighters with the TIE/fo Fighter Expansion Pack. Each expansion pack includes one fully assembled and beautifully painted miniature, twelve ship cards, five upgrade cards, four Quick Build cards, and all the tokens you need to add a TIE/fo fighter to your First Order squadron.
