Turmoil has engulfed the Galactic Republic. The Separatist Alliance has driven a spike into the heart of the galaxy, splintering the once-unified worlds with chaos, tyranny, and fear. But even in this age of uncertainty and disunion, legendary Jedi Knights band together and fight to preserve the Republic.
Soon, you can choose a side and experience a new era of space combat. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce a new wave of expansions for X-Wing!

These expansions give you the chance to enter this spreading conflict and command endless legions of droid fighters or valiantly lead powerful Jedi Knights and dedicated clone pilots into battle. 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.

The 6mm sci-fi Neo-Soviet Ulyanovsk supercarrier SFS-1211 made its debut at Brigade Models.
At 115mm long, this is a huge model, the largest spaceship we’ve produced so far. The hull is resin, with four metal engines, three heavy gun turrets and a metal bridge to top it all off. It carries as many as fourteen fighter groups, along with the three battleship-class mass accelerator turrets and a myriad of secondary weapons. It has hefty shielding along with armour plating, so is a very tough nut to crack – you can find the Starmada-X playsheet here.

This month sees the release of a new support unit for the Broken: Pa’ku Artillery, available now from the Maelstrom’s Edge webstore!
Behind the implacable visage of the Pa’ku resides a powerful, if often misunderstood intellect. Extremely logical creatures, when the Pa’ku are convinced a certain course of action will do more good than wrong, they will take lives without scruples if that is what it takes. Pa’ku artillery has been known to mercilessly bombard hospitals or civilian refugee groups when they have concluded that this was the most logical course of action. They do not make any decision lightly nor do they act carelessly. In fact, the Pa’ku sometimes drive their commanders crazy as they sit pondering the pros and cons of a proposed course of action and all the alternatives, and where the situation is particularly complex have been known to gather for private war councils with their own kind before they will consider responding to a call to arms. Despite their reputation for ruthlessness, when Pa’ku take lives it is because they believe there is no viable alternative. This does not however mean they are saints – all of a Pa’ku’s deliberations are still ultimately guided by self-interest and a desire to survive the chaos of the Edge. Despite their peculiarities, Pa’ku are especially desirable to the Broken. Their solid physiques make them extremely suited to carrying heavy loads, including the biggest artillery the Broken manage to cobble together. At close range, the Pa’ku can extend their very long tongue with enough force to cave in a man’s skull. Pa’ku only speak to other species when necessary, and their language is difficult for most races to translate or speak. Combined with their large size, this generally results in them being overlooked by evacuation efforts, and so as with the even larger Gnolti, joining the Broken is often the only reasonable chance for a Pa’ku to escape the edge and find a new home. Pa’ku are often found in the support lines of Broken forces with giant cannon and other esoteric weapons strapped to their broad shoulders. Linked with electronic targeting systems, these weapons can be slaved together to unleash devastating barrages of firepower onto enemy lines. Their favoured weapon is a multi-barrelled EMP mortar, which carpets the battlefield with explosive energy packets that can fry electronic systems and incinerate softer targets.
You can find the rules for the Pa’ku Artillery unit in the Force Builder section of the Maelstrom’s Edge website.

Despite the military advantages of the Galactic Empire, it is difficult for them to completely stamp out the flames of rebellion. The Rebels always seem to be one step ahead, secreting themselves away in the far corners of the galaxy.

Now, one of the galaxy’s deadliest hired guns is available to hunt down and eliminate Rebel scum wherever they can be found.
When the overwhelming might of Imperial legions isn’t enough to bring down the Rebellion, sometimes it’s best to rely on someone with a little more expertise. Add Boba Fett to your army and he’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done!
