X-Wing Miniatures Wave 5 Announced & Bigger is Better!

June 14, 2014 by stvitusdancern

Fantasy Flight Games has just announced their wave 5 ships set to be  released  in the third quarter of 2014. Continuing with their theme so far this year, it would appear bigger is better.

X-Wing Wave 5

The two ships being released will include the YT-2400 for the Rebellion and the VT-49 Decimator for the Empire. With each of these new ships expansion packs there will be included some new upgrades and characters along with some new terrain pieces (in card stock).

The YT-2400 looks to be another Corellian freighter that has been converted for space combat. It has thirteen weapons points, which will make for some interesting weapons arrangements and tactics. Lando Calrissian and a new character Dash Rendar are also included along with some interesting upgrades designed by the first two world champions of X-Wing.


The VT-49 Decimator is a pretty menacing looking ship, and by the looks of it has one task and that is destruction to any ship that gets in it’s way. With this expansion you get two new characters also, Mara Jade and Fleet Officer along with new upgrades.

With the new missions that come with each expansion pack will you try to outrun the Empire’s blockade or will you be trying to blast the rebel ships into space dust?
