Fantasy Flight Games has offered a look inside the 6th wave of expansions for X-Wing in the Star Viper Expansion Pack for the fearsome Scum & Villainy faction. The criminal mastermind behind this ship and expansion is the cunning, Prince Xizor.
“To contend with Xizor is to lose.”
Xizor once ranked among the galaxy’s most ambitious and influential beings. He was cold and calculating, and his rise to power led him over the corpses of numerous enemies. After the Battle of Hoth, his influence rivaled that of even Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine. He was known for his extravagant tastes and competitive nature, and it was that desire that MandalMotors designed the StarViper-class attack platform as a fighter that could rival the Empire’s TIE interceptor in speed and agility. The end result of this design was the Star Viper.
This ship not only looks awesome, but brings some really fantastic options to the table as well. It’s stats include a fantastic balance with 3 attack, 3 agility, four hull and one shield and it only costs 25 of your available squadron points. What’s more, is it’s action bar is fully loaded with 4 choices including: focus, target lock, barrel roll and boost!
Will the Star Viper be making an appearance in your X-Wing game?
