Welcome to the X-Wing Miniatures: Second Edition Wiki
X-Wing Miniatures is a tactical table-top game where players fly Star Wars ships against each other, including X-Wings, TIE Fighters, the Millennium Falcon, TIE Defenders, and many others. Combat is very focused on planning and positioning, as well as building a great squadron in advance.
This is the wiki for the Second Edition of this game. For the First Edition, visit their wiki here.
Update (Sept 22): Article comments are re-enabled, in addition to the Discuss page. And we've fixed our infoboxes. We're still working through some matters like colors and the occasional look & feel.
About the X-Wing Miniatures Game
Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates exciting Star Wars space battles from small engagements of only a couple of crafts, to large conflicts where multiple squadrons clash. Select and equip your ships, pick your crew, plan your attack, and complete your mission! Fast and visceral, X-Wing puts you in the middle of fierce Star Wars firefights. Use each craft’s unique maneuver dial to secretly plot its movement action for each turn. After each player has locked in his movement decisions, the dials are revealed and ships are moved. Pepper the enemy with blaster fire as you rush into the dogfight, or move into combat range slowly, attaining deadly target locks before you launch a devastating attack. No matter your plan of attack, you’ll be in total control throughout the tense action!
Also check out the Armada Wiki for our sister game. Many X-Wing players also play Armada for a slower, larger-scale space battle with a greater focus on capital ships.
A few ships can be shared across factions: they are the exact same ship in each case and the dial remains the same, but they have different pilot cards (and often different upgrade slots) for the different factions. Compare to ships like the BTL-B Y-Wing, Modified TIE/ln Fighter, various forms of the YT-1300, etc which are not the same across factions, even if they sometimes use the same or a similar plastic model.
