Crush The Rebellion With X-Wing’s New Big Imperial Raider

Fantasy Flight Games have shown off another big miniature for their X-Wing game. This time the massive ship moving into orbit is the Imperial Raider. Rebels beware…

It’s very impressive and looks imposing on the tabletop I’m sure. When you see it next to a TIE Advanced (see below) you’ll see what I mean. The Raider is designed for Cinematic and Epic level play. More about it…

“Kuat Drive Yards began manufacturing the Raider-class corvette in 6BBY as a dedicated anti-fighter vessel after it was successfully pitched by Lira Wessex, the designer of the Imperial-class Star Destroyer. She recognized that the Imperial Navy lacked a small, modern craft to reinforce the TIE fighter squadrons deployed by Star Destroyers, and she designed the Raider-class corvette as a durable, 150m vessel that featured multiple hardpoints and would excel at suppressing Rebel fighter attacks.”

As well as the Raider you also get a new TIE Advanced with some new cards allowing you to utilise it to suppress Rebel attacks with a bit more ease. I can see some awesome games coming to light when this and the big Rebel ships clash surrounded by a swarm of fighters.

Pretty sure Fantasy Flight Games have just won once again with this one.

What do you think of it?
