“That thing’s a disaster.”
–Kazuda Xiono, Star Wars: Resistance
Some starship pilots make a name for themselves in the heat of battle, showcasing their skills as they shoot down enemy fighters. Others take a different path entirely, beginning their careers as racers, working around the clock to keep their cobbled-together ships in the sky long enough to cross the finish line.
Whatever route they take, these pilots need nerves of steel if they’re to find success. A rare few —such as Kazuda Xiono—live in both worlds, building a reputation as both a racer and a starfighter pilot. Soon, you can help Xiono on this journey to become the best pilot in the galaxy with the Fireball Expansion Pack for Star Wars™: X-Wing!
Fireball Expansion Pack – 19,95 USD
A labor of love to the crew of Jarek Yeager’s garage, the Fireball is a highly combustible, scratch-built racing ship. Flown by undercover Resistance operative Kazuda Xiono, this explosion with wings is able to push the limit around the course before living up to its name. Lightly armed but lightning fast, the Fireball can careen around the battlefield, gaining superior position on almost any enemy.
The Fireball Expansion Pack contains everything you need to add one of these swift ships to your Resistance squadrons, including one Fireball miniature, four ship cards, and seven upgrade cards. Additionally, two Quick Build cards help you easily combine pilots and upgrades and get your Fireball to the start line as quickly as possible.
This expansion features a beautifully detailed, pre-painted Fireball miniature that can bring its incredible speed to your Resistance squadrons. In addition to this miniature, you’ll also find four ship cards representing the brave pilots willing to fly this explosion with wings. Finally, seven upgrade cards invite you to add your own improvements to the ship while two Quick Build cards offer useful pre-defined combinations of pilots and upgrades to get your ship into the battle.
Join us today as we take a closer look at what you’ll find in the Fireball Expansion Pack!
This ability makes the Fireball a threat to nearly every ship in play, but it also requires pilots who can handle its blazing speed while also managing the many problems that arise. A veteran of the Galactic Civil War as well as an experienced racer, Jarek Yeager is no stranger to high pressure situations.
He exhibits grace under pressure while at the controls of the Fireball, continuing to pull off challenging red maneuvers while he has two or fewer stress tokens. He can do this even better with the assistance of his trusty bucket of bolts R1-J5, who can quickly repair any major issues that pop up with the Fireball while Yeager is pushing the ship to its limits.
Yeager is certainly a highly skilled pilot, but that doesn’t mean R1-J5 has to back him up forever. He can also take control of the ship himself, using his mechanical expertise to look at and choose which facedown damage card to expose at crucial moments.
This can be especially useful when using the Fireball’s built-in Explosion with Wings ability, but it can also help him deal with the unpredictable outcomes from using Coaxium Hyperfuel to rocket himself forward.
Unlike Yeager or Bucket, other Fireball pilots are less accustomed to the challenges that come with flying a racer. Trained as a starfighter pilot, it’s only natural that Kazuda Xiono would take a more combat-oriented approach.
He starts with a significant advantage over all but the lowest initiative pilots, rolling an additional die while defending or performing a primary attack against other aces. This advantage slowly dissolves as the pressure mounts and the Fireball takes damage, but even then Xiono remains effective against top enemy fighters.
Xiono can press this advantage even further with the help of an Advanced SLAM that gives him the chance to perform another action after he activates the ship’s SubLight Acceleration Motors. Alternatively, he can make up for some of the Fireball’s offensive shortcomings by outfitting it with a Targeting Computer that allows him to acquire locks and help his shots find their targets.
In addition to his skills as a pilot, Xiono is a novice mechanic who can put his own spin on the Fireball itself.
With his help, you receive a Ship damage card of your choice while resolving Explosion with Wings. Not only does this help you avoid a devastating Direct Hit later on, it can also give you more opportunities to activate it throughout a game.
If you choose a Disabled Power Regulator, for example, you’ll always have a card to expose after it repairs itself.
This comes at the cost of ionization, but you can also use this time to repair your other damage cards to keep their negative effects from multiplying.
Feel the Rush
With its powerful engines and unpredictable nature, the Fireball might be more at home on the race course than in battle. But any pilot with skill to tame it can bring down the galaxy’s deadliest aces.
Harness the power of this blazingly fast racer with the Fireball Expansion Pack (SWZ63), arriving at your local retailer in the first quarter of 2020.
