Nearly 30 years after the Battle of Endor, the struggle for the fate of the Star Wars galaxy has taken a drastic turn. The nefarious First Order has decimated the Republic and is now on the verge of eliminating the only remaining military force that stands in the way of total galactic domination: the Resistance. Launching their starfighters into battle, the Resistance hopes to gain whatever ground it can against the rising tyranny.
You’ll have the chance to play out the engagements between these two dueling powers when both the Resistance and First Order enter the battles of X-Wing™ later this year. The First Order Conversion Kit and Resistance Conversion Kit give you everything you need to bring your collection of Resistance and First Order ships from the first edition into the second edition and begin building your own squadrons.
Additionally, the T-70 X-Wing Expansion Pack and the TIE/fo Fighter Expansion Pack help you round out your Resistance and First Order squadrons with even more fighters. Finally, with the RZ-2 A-Wing Expansion, you have a completely new option that adds some blinding speed to your Resistance squadrons.
Today we’re going to explore the squad-building possibilities of these new factions by taking a look at two lists created by designer Alex Davy!
