‘X-Wing 2.0: Wave 4 – Resistance Transport Expansion Pack’ Review

by Matthew Smail

For me, at least, the presence of the Resistance Transport in a miniatures game about squadron level combat is a bit of an enigma. Sure, the Transport may be based on the B-Wing platform and it can be used as something of a gunship, but such a ship would feel more at home in games […]

‘X-Wing 2.0: Wave 4 – A/SF-01 B-Wing Expansion Pack’ Review

by Matthew Smail

The B-Wing was been a mainstay of Rebel Alliance lists since its introduction in the original X-Wing game, and the new pilots and miniatures released as part of X-Wing 2.0 Wave 4 look likely to continue that theme. Firstly, the new model is much more feature rich than the original was, with a rotating cockpit […]

‘X-Wing 2.0: Wave 4 – VT-49 Decimator’ Expansion Pack Review

by Matthew Smail

You’d be forgiven for not being able to place the silhouette of the imposing and much larger than expected VT-49 Decimator, especially if your knowledge of Star Wars is limited only to the core movies. This ship has never appeared in the movies as far as I know, but it looks every bit like an […]

‘Star Wars Rebellion’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

For Star Wars fans, The Original Trilogy remains somewhat sacred, and whilst both the Prequel Trilogy and the Disney franchise movies continue to have both their fans and a number of detractors, most agree that George Lucas’s seminal trilogy remain the benchmark. As such, it is always hugely exciting when a new product is released […]

If you’re familiar with the phrase “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy” then you’ll almost certainly have seen the original Star Wars movie, and you’ll likely recognise the words of Alec Guinness’ Obi Wan Kenobi.
