Ok, so we got a tiny glimps of the outrider before it was announced with the predator card art (I might be wrong, running on memory right now)

So with that in mind, there are some unidentified ships on one of the e-wing cards. Any speculation about that?

Excuse me for not having been a member of the forum since the creation of the game.

If you'll ease off the condescension maybe new people wouldn't mind posting.

This speculative topic has been covered at least once every two or three weeks of late. Quite often, there's no connection due to the fact most of the artwork is used everywhere by FFG. We don't mean to be condescending, but we've seen it many times already. And as it seems you're new here, Mr Whyte, a word of warning, I wouldn't try asking for, or suggesting a Star Destroyer model. That road leads to 20 pages of arguments.  :( Not worth the hassle.

They're Yevethan D-type fighters, and I doubt we'll ever see them in the game.

Nikk Whyte is the singer from an 80's hair metal band, amirite?


You don't need to strip your miniatures, painting over is fine. No, there should not be a fourth faction, three is the magic number for countering flavor lists and to break up faction distribution. Someone else has likely thought up and posted your amazing new build, so you don't need to stroke your ego when reposting it. The prequels sucked and so would a game based on it. YES, there should be a Custom Forum for terrain and repaints! Moving on...

No.  Just no.  Art assets are used across games, so there is no secret hints in the art towards future ships.

    It's a good idea, but not all the ships in the cards are from new ships, greetings.

Unless of course we were to see a new faction enter the game... which brings us to another interesting question...

Short version is that card art doesn't predict future ships.

 

Long version,

 

Can we just let the card theory die? So many threads crop up about it and it's completely unfounded. Yes, the TIE bomber appeared on Homing Missiles in Wave 2. Because it's a Star Wars ship, and FFG is drawing on Star Wars art. Yes, the YT shows up on Swarm Tactics. Because it's the Millenium Falcon! How much more Star Wars Spaceship Staple do you get? Claiming card art foreshadowing is like being surprised they made the TIE interceptor.

 

Besides, it's not as FFG makes the all art specifically for X-wing. They freely share art between this, the LCG and the RPG and they get most of their art from existing sources. Marksmanship is the cover of The Bacta War. Decoy is the cover of Solo Command. ST-321 and Prototype Pilot are Ralph McQuarrie concept art. It's a Star Wars game drawing on decades of Star Wars art, of course there are other film Star Wars ships in them that FFG have yet to make.

 

That's a grand total of two ships. That isn't the E-wing on Roark, btw. Too big, different design.

 

What about the countless Star Destroyers, the thing that looks like Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator on Omicron Group Pilot, the Sentinel-class Shuttle in the distance on Outer Rim Smuggler? Or if we go into Wave 4, the Recusant Destroyers on Predator?

 

FFG will make ships that make sense, and card art often involves ships that make sense. But the card art has nothing to do with future releases.

Peoples reaction to these is always funny.
If someone ( God help them ) ever makes a post about a third faction that helps out the Y-wing and advanced and that card has artwork with another ship on. I think the forum would explode. Welcome to the OP btw

Welcome nick. As you can see the communities reaction to certain threads can be a bit rough.. as others have said this comes up about every week. 

 

Now if we had a few good.. admins.... I mean subforums / like a speculation section you'd have seen at least 1 other discussion on this..


I see your schwartz is as big as mine. Let's see how you handle it!

Also OP, and I believe this has also been mentioned before, the ship in Outmaneuver isn't actually the Outrider. Observe.

 

Note the wide engine and very short connection from main fuselage to the cockpit.

 

Outmaneuver.png

 

Outrider.jpg

Notice the length of the engine in proportion to the rest of the ship, and elongated fuselage. When Outmaneuver first came out everyone's wishful thinking got the better of them and they thought it to be the famous Outrider, but it was not. Though we still got it anyway, yay, but your original thesis doesn't work unfortunately.

 

Welcome to the forum though, hopefully this reception hasn't put you out too much.

If they were to do a third faction, I still think the Yevetha would be about 106th on the priority list. For one thing, IIRC they were murderously xenophobic, which would make adding them to a list containing any non-Yevetha a little bit of a problem from a thematic standpoint.

"New" was probably a strong word. I've been around long enough to recognize regulars, and have more than one immediately negative answer to a thread I've started, specifically from wonderwaaaagh.

Luckily this game keeps me coming back.
