This past weekend Fantasy Flight Games announced the 4 ships to be released in the Wave 3 expansion for their popular Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures game (full review here). There had been much speculation and guessing over the past few months as to which ships they would choose. Well the announcement is here and your Wave 3 ships include: The HWK-290, Lambda-class Shuttle, B-Wing, and TIE Bomber. Of those, only the HWK-290 is a surprise. The other 3 have been at the top of people’s guess list for many months. The expansion includes 2 support type ships and 2 ships with a lot of offensive firepower. Here is a quick run down of each ship:

  • Small ship base
  • Four ship cards and three unique pilots, including Kyle Katarn
