“Fear will keep the local systems in line.”
–Grand Moff Tarkin, Star Wars: A New Hope
The Galactic Empire is the ultimate force in the Star Wars galaxy, maintaining its dominance with crushing military might. When X-Wing™ Second Edition launches on September 13, it’ll usher in a new generation of Imperial terror, giving you the chance to command crack squadrons of cutting-edge Imperial starfighters in fast-paced space combat.
With the X-Wing Second Edition Core Set and the two Imperial ship expansions releasing at launch, you already have a wide array of possibilities for customizing your Imperial squadrons. And if you’re a veteran X-Wing player, the Galactic Empire Conversion Kit provides the components you need to bring your collection of first edition ships into the second edition, opening up even more squad-building possibilities.
After taking a look at a Rebel squadron featuring the crew of the Ghostin our last article, we’re turning our attention to the forces of the Galactic Empire and another 200-point list created by designer Alex Davy. Join us as we take a look at an Imperial squadron that relies on some of the most advanced ships in the Imperial arsenal.
