Servants of Strife Squadron Pack – 39,95 USD

War! The Separatist Alliance has driven a spike into the heart of the galaxy, splintering the once-unified worlds with choas, tyranny, and fear. At the heart of this offensive is the dastardly General Grievous, commanding endless legions of droid fighters. 

Swarms of networked Vulture-class fighters commanded by tactical droids strike at innocent worlds, forcing the Republic on the defensive. All the while, Grievous slinks through the shadows in his customized Belbullab-22 Starfighter; hunting the Jedi at every turn. 

This Squadron Pack contains everything you need to add one Belbullab-22 Starfighter and two Vulture-class Droid Fighter ships to your games of X-Wing, including new ship and upgrade cards, three maneuver dials, and an array of tokens. 

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 3

Sith Infiltrator Expansion Pack – 39,95 Euro

The Sith operate in the shadows. As they unfold their dark machinations across the galaxy, they need a ship that matches their nefarious purposes. Casting a menacing shadow as it cuts across the skies, the Sith Infiltrator is the perfect choice to carry the agents of Darth Sidious on their dark missions and into the battles of X-Wing.

With the Sith Infiltrator Expansion Pack, you can use the experimental cloaking device, devastating firepower, and advanced systems of one of these ships to deliver vicious surgical strikes before vanishing into the void. In addition to the finely detailed and fully painted Sith Infiltrator miniature, you’ll find a collection of five ship cards, including Darth Maul himself, twenty upgrade cards that help you fully utilize the ship’s systems, and all the tokens and maneuver dials you need to launch your own secret missions.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 4
Vulture-class Droid Fighter Expansion – 19,95 USD

The Vulture-class Droid Fighter is the backbone of the Separatist Navy and emblematic of its strategy: weak in isolation, but overwhelming in numbers. A sufficiently vast swarm of networked attackers form a cunning, sinister intelligence that can defeat even wise and powerful Jedi pilots.

The Vulture-class Droid Fighter Expansion Pack contains everything you need to begin building your own squadron of linked droid starfighters—most importantly, a beautifully pre-painted Vulture-class droid fighter miniature. Additionally, five ship cards give you the ability to outfit your droid fighter with distinct types of programming while five upgrade cards provide even more freedom to shape your squadron. 

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 5

Legendary Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi valiantly leads dedicated clone pilots into battle against the forces of tyranny and chaos in the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack for X-Wing!

This pack gives you everything you need to begin building your Galactic Republic squadrons, including one Delta-7 Aethersprite miniature and two V-19 Torrent miniatures. The chosen interceptor of many Jedi, the Delta-7 allows them to use their Force-enhanced reflexes to the fullest. Behind them, clone pilots cover them from their V-19 Torrents with coordinated fire, tight formation flying, and salvoes of missilies. In addition to the miniatures, this Squadron Pack gives you the chance to further explore the potential of the Force with several new Force upgrade cards. Meanwhile, a wealth of other upgrade cards—including reprints of many common neutral upgrade cards—provide a wealth of options for customizing your squadrons. 

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 6

ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion Pack – 29,95 USD

The ARC-170 is the Galactic Republic’s mainstay heavy starfighter. Equipped torpedoes allow this intimidating craft to smash through foes that might repel the Republic’s more lightly armed ships, while its rear gunner makes it difficult to approach from most angles. Whether defending the flanks of a formation or giving support to a Jedi General, the ARC-170 has an imposing presence on the battlefield.

With the ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion Pack, you can bring a single ARC-170 starfighter to your X-Wing battles. Alongside the beautifully painted ARC-170 miniature, you’ll find six clone pilots ready to fly for the Republic as well as 14 upgrade cards giving you the freedom to add additional heavy weaponry, gunners, and crew members to your ship.

With five ship cards—including four unique pilots—the Delta-7 Aethersprite Expansion Pack adds even more Jedi for you to include in your Galactic Republic squadrons, including the legendary Anakin Skywalker. Featuring an alternate paint scheme to ship included in the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack, this expansion also features six upgrade cards designed to get even more out of your ship and its Jedi pilots.

The Z-95 Headhunter’s wide production saw it scattered to the far corners of the galaxy. Now, this reliable, easy-to-acquire starfighter is integral to numerous criminal cartel fleets—from large operations like Black Sun to small-time raiders like the Binayre Pirates. Armed with missiles and illicit technologies, a single Z-95-AF4 can be a danger, but a swarm can be devastating. 

Now, you have the chance to continue growing your Scum and Villainy squadrons with these inexpensive fighters.

TIE/sk Striker Expansion Pack – 19,95 USD

Screaming through the atmosphere on nimble ailerons, the TIE/sk striker is a unique starfighter designed to excel at both air and space assaults. Its atmospheric capabilities give it unique and flexible movement patterns that can surprise even veteran opponents, as its heavy firepower lets it wear down nearly any foe.

With the TIE/sk Striker Expansion Pack, you have a new option for rounding out your Imperial squadrons. In addition to the fully assembled, pre-painted TIE/sk striker miniature, five pilots stand ready to swoop into battle and protect the Empire, while five upgrade cards give you the chance to further customize your squadrons.

As you do, you’ll experience new twists to the X-Wing formula, outfit your ships with new upgrades, and immerse yourself in the Clone Wars like never before. In addition to introducing the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance as brand-new factions to X-Wing, this wave also brings the opportunity to round out your Scum and Villainy and Galactic Empire squadrons with updated versions of two classic starfighters.

Read on for a look into what each of these expansions brings to your games of X-Wing!

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 12

Servants of Strife Squadron Pack

The corporate entities that form the bulk of the Separatist Alliance have untold resources at their disposal. As the Clone Wars escalate, then, it is only natural that they throw this weight into developing advanced starfighter technology that can help them put the Republic on the defensive. The result of this research is a unique blend of cheap but deadly droid starfighters and heavily armed ships controlled by „more traditional“ organic pilots.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 13

Both of these design philosophies are represented in the Servants of Strife Squadron Pack. Within this expansion, you’ll find both a heavily armed Belbullab-22 starfighter and two Vulture-class droid fighters (painted in General Grievous’s colors) to begin building your Separatist Alliance squadrons. Accompanying these ships is a full suite of 48 upgrade cards that reflect the Separatists’ emphasis on groups of networked droid fighters working as one. For example, adding a Tactical Relay upgrade such as Kraken to your squadron gives your droids even more power to make use of their calculate tokens.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 14

This massive array of upgrade cards, including reprints of many common neutral upgrade cards, also means that Servants of Strife can be combined with the X-Wing Core Set to make the perfect start, especially if you’re just getting into the game and want to start flying with the Separatists.

We’ll take a look at everything included in the Servants of Strife Squadron Pack, including all the Seperatist-exclusive upgrade cards, in a future preview!

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 15

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 18

Vulture-class Droid Fighter Expansion

The Separatist Navy may contain many capable organic pilots, but the vast majority is made up of Vulture-class droid fighters. These starfighters form the backbone of the Separatist forces and are emblematic of its strategy: weak in isolation, but overwhelming in numbers. A sufficiently vast swarm of networked attackers form a cunning, sinister intelligence that can defeat even wise and powerful Jedi pilots.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 19

The Vulture-class Droid Fighter Expansion Pack contains everything you need to begin building your own squadron of linked droid starfighters—most importantly, a beautifully pre-painted Vulture-class droid fighter miniature. Each of the five droid pilots included in this pack can contribute to your Separatist swarm in their own way, but they become even more deadly when using their careful calculations to launch Energy-Shell Charges at enemy ships.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 20

We’ll take a glimpse at everything included in the Vulture-class Droid Fighter Expansion Pack, including all the ways these ships can use calculate tokens, in a future preview!

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 21

Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack

Leading the fight against the Separatist war machine are none other than the Jedi Knights. They enter the fight at the controls of the Delta-7 Aethersprite, a starfighter that allows them to use their Force-enhanced reflexes to the fullest. Behind them, clone pilots take to the skies in V-19 Torrents, covering their Jedi Generals with coordinated fire, tight formation flying, and salvos of missiles.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 22

With the Jedi taking the lead, the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack gives you the chance to further explore the potential of the Force in your X-Wing squadrons. In addition to  one Delta-7 Aethersprite (painted in Obi-Wan Kenobi’s colors) and two V-19 Torrent Starfighter miniatures, this expansion contains new Force upgrade cards that unlock even more potential in your Force-sensitive pilots. For example, they could exhibit Brilliant Evasion to escape a seemingly impossible situation unscathed.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 23

And of course, like Servants of Strife, the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack makes the perfect introduction to the game with a wealth of upgrade cards, including reprints of many common neutral upgrade cards. If you’re interested in starting to fly alongside the Galactic Republic, this squadron pack is the perfect second purchase after your X-Wing Core Set!

We’ll take a look at everything included in the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack, including all the upgrade cards, in a future preview!

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 24

ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion

Starfighters piloted by powerful Jedi are certainly a boon to the Republic, but the lightly armed Delta-7 Aethersprite is still a delicate starfighter that can’t handle the brunt of enemy fire. The ARC-170 starfighter, on the other hand, can smash through foes that might repel the Republic’s more lightly armed ships. Equipped with torpedoes and a rear gunner, even the most intelligent Separatist droids will find it difficult to approach this intimidating craft.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 25

With the ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion Pack, you can bring a single ARC-170 starfighter to your X-Wing battles. Primed for battle, clone pilots like „Sinker“ are ready to do whatever it takes to support their squadron, whether that means defending the flanks of a formation or giving support to a Jedi General.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 26

We’ll take a look inside the ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion Pack, including all the ship cards, in a future preview!

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 27

Delta-7 Aethersprite Expansion

Jedi Knights travel far across the galaxy in their mission to uphold justice. Rather than cross the gulfs between the stars and their destination in any ship, they choose one specifically designed to augment their considerable abilities. Equipped with an astromech for navigation, the Delta-7 Aethersprite is lightly armed but highly maneuverable, its fine-tuned controls allowing a Force-sensitive pilot to fly it with unmatched precision.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 28

With five ship cards—including four unique pilots—the Delta-7 Aethersprite Expansion Pack adds even more Jedi for you to include in your Galactic Republic squadrons, including the legendary Anakin Skywalker. Though the Delta-7 is specifically designed to work with its pilot’s enhanced reflexes, any Jedi would still welcome the aid of the Calibrated Laser Targeting modification to add even more damage potential to their primary attacks.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 29

Furthermore, the miniature included in this expansion features an alternate paint scheme to the ships included in the Guardians of the Republic Squadron Pack, here evoking the starfighter flown by none other than Anakin Skywalker.

Upgraded Controls

You can further indicate the uniqueness of your squadron with the Galactic Republic Maneuver Dial Upgrade Kit and the Separatist Alliance Maneuver Dial Upgrade Kit.

During every game of X-Wing, you will secretly select the maneuvers for your ships on cardboard maneuver dials. In each of these maneuver dial upgrade kits, you’ll find three plastic protectors that enclose these maneuver dials in a secure housing, enhancing the aesthetics of your squadron and declaring your allegiance to the Republic or your independence from it. Not only does every dial clearly indicate the faction of your choice, they also include a space on the back to insert one of the dial ID tokens included in these expansions. Each dial ID token displays the silhouette of the corresponding ship, making it even easier to differentiate between your ships.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 31

Z-95-AF4 Headhunter Expansion

Widely produced across the galaxy, the reliable, easy-to-acquire Z-95-AF4 Headhunter has become integral to numerous criminal cartel fleets—from large operations like Black Sun to small-time raiders like the Binayre Pirates. When outfitted with missiles and other illicit technologies, a single Z-95-AF4 can be a danger, but a swarm can be devastating to anyone unprepared to face it.

Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars X Wing Wave III 32

Now, you have the chance to continue growing your Scum and Villainy squadrons. The Z-95-AF4 Headhunter Expansion Pack includes everything you need to add one Z-95-AF4 Headhunter ship to your squadron, including a miniature with a stunning new paint scheme, four ship cards, five upgrade cards, and a handful of tokens.
