Fans of Star Wars and of Fantasy Flight Games‘ X-Wing Miniatures Game will be excited to see the new TIE Reaper miniature that was previewed today. These crafts were first seen in the skies of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In that movie, they proved to be a deadly threat to the rebel forces who were trying to acquire the plans for the Deathstar. The TIE Reaper is also being used to bring in the new second edition of the game.
“In addition to adding a new starfighter to the Imperial ranks, the TIE Reaper Expansion Pack will help usher in X-Wing Second Edition by including components that are compatible with both the first and second editions. The beautifully painted TIE reaper miniature included in this expansion will be accompanied by second edition versions of all the ship cards and tokens you need to incorporate one of these terrifying ships into your Imperial squadrons, as well as its own complement of ten upgrade cards.
These cards will give you an early glimpse of the refinements made in the new edition and, when X-Wing Second Edition is released on September 13th, 2018, they will join the upgrades already found in X-Wing Second Edition to give you an array of options for building your first squadron. We’ve already taken a look at the first edition content you’ll find in this expansion. Join us today for a preview of the second edition content in the TIE Reaper Expansion Pack!”
This is an exciting new edition to the game and is sure to be very popular with players both new and old. The TIE Reaper should be available for purchase sometime soon, but for those that can’t wait it is currently available for pre-order through Fantasy Flight’s official store.
