Assemble your squadrons and prepare for battle in X-Wing Miniatures Game! Launch your rugged Rebel X-wings into desperate missions or take control of nimble TIE fighters and outnumber your enemy in this fast-paced game that puts you in control of your favorite ships from the Star Wars galaxy. X-Wing recreates the excitement of all your favoriteStar Wars space battles and allows you to imagine your own. However you play, you’ll need all of your cunning and skill to claim victory.

Last summer, Fantasy Flight Games announced X-Wing, a fast-paced game of tactical space battles. We are now pleased to say that this highly anticipated game will be launching onto shelves in the summer of 2012.

Build your squadrons and prepare for battle

With accessible and dynamic rules, X-Wing is easy to learn and provides fast and furious strategic gameplay. Simply lock in your movement on the movement dial for each ship, and then maneuver your ships into battle. As the game develops, players must react to a quickly changing battlefield. Keep your wits, because you’ll need to outfox your opponents or risk winding up as space scrap.

With the X-Wing Miniatures Game, you can assume the role of many famous Star Wars characters. Take the role of the legendary Luke Skywalker, who has an uncanny ability to survive any engagement. You could also play as powerful villains like the Imperial pilot known as “Dark Curse,” a member of Black Squadron who is adept at dodging incoming attacks, or test your skills with less experienced pilots like Rebel Rookie Pilot or Imperial Academy Pilot. With thirteen pilots included in X-Wing, you have many options to choose from.

An expanding universe

Arriving at the same time as the X-Wing Miniatures Game Core Set, you can add even more starfighters to your games with the X-Wing expansion packs. Command entire squadrons of Rebel X-wings and Y-wings or throngs of Imperial TIE fighters and TIE Advanced fighters, and relive your favorite Star Wars space battles…or create your own. The possibilities are endless when you build your own collection of X-Wing ships.

All of the X-Wing miniatures have been recreated to scale with painstaking accuracy, and the results are stunning. Look for a future in-depth article that provides more detail on the process of making these masterfully detailed models.

With easy-to-learn rules that put you right in the middle of the action, while providing compelling strategic gameplay, X-Wing promises to be a thrilling experience for Star Wars fans and gamers across the galaxy!


Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game is now available for Pre-Order. 

  1. Being both a Star Wars nut and a tactical space junkie, I’ll definitely be looking into this. I do hope that they expand beyond the basic snub fighters relatively quickly, though, as Star Wars has such a rich collections of combat vessels to choose from. Although it will be difficult keeping things in scale if they ever do introduce capitol ships.

    Presumably this will be released at Gencon?

      1. Cool, thanks! I just checked out the main website for this, and it seems the price point is kind of high. I’m fin with whatever for the basic game, but the expansions look to have just a single mini with a few other cards for $15. While it’s at least not random, that is pretty steep.

  2. From what those who demoed it at GenCon were saying this game was very awesome (and that was a very rough version of the game apparently). I’m a huge fan of Star Wars, so I’m really hoping this game is good. Imagining the Executor or the Death Star to scale is just insane.

  3. After playing the other Star Wars Space battles miniatures game, I hope that FFG limits the star ships to Star Fighters and Transports. I really like the “Dog fighting” aspect of this game and hope they keep it the central focus going forward.

    There is a demo on Youtube from last years GenCon where they had 6 players per table each with 1 or 2 star fighters to control during the battle. I like the idea of each ship acting on its own and working with the players on their team instead of just one person planning out every move on the board for each side.
