I am new to X-Wing and have fallen completely head over heals for it. I have a number of X-Wings and TIEs to choose from as well as A-Wings, B-Wings and TIE Interceptors. I am unable to locate any Y-Wings (My favorite ship.) or TIE Advanced. With the FFG Store showing all of these being Out of Stock I'm wondering if there is a release or re-release schedule anywhere and if so; where?

 

I've only played about a dozen matches ranging from 35 to 150 points so I'm not adept enough to contribute to the forums yet but give me a month or so and I'll start putting my two cents in the pot.

 

Thank You,

 

Mythweaver

I believe that Wave 1 will be back out in the next month. So you should be able to get Y- wings and Tie-Advanced then

Thanks for the reply. I really hope so...the idea of walking enemy ships of the board with ION Turrets is really exiting!

you might want to look around at local hobby stores / barnes besides your local gaming shop. You might get lucky and find a few y-wings or an advanced. Do not pay more than normal market price!

 

anyways, welcome to the forums!

If you don't mind my asking, I would love to know what ships were used in the 35 point builds. I love limited battles like that, and even though 100 points is what the game was designed around, I still think it's neat to play a small battle between one or two ships.


Rebel Alliance: 7 X-wings, 4 Y-wings, 4 A-wings, 1 YT-1300, 2 HWK-290s, 3 B-wings, 1 GR-75, 1 CR-90

Galactic Empire: 6 TIE Fighters, 1 TIE Advanced, 2 Firespray-31s, 1 Lambda class Shuttle, 3 TIE Bombers

I have found for 35 points that:

Horton Salm with R2-D2 and Ion Cannon Turret (34 points)

Work amazing. You might get int thanks to the 34 total, and a ship that tough with a 360 turret that can keep your opponent's ships going where you want them to is sweet. Also the fact that you can get a shield back on a green thanks to R2 is a bonus. I used this and went 5-0 in a 35 point tourney.

Rebel - (4)X-Wing (5)Y (5)A (4)B (3)E (6)HWK-290 (8)Z-95 Headhunter (3)YT-1300 (2)GR-75 (1)CR-90

Empire - (8)TIE Fighter (4)Advanced (5)Interceptor (6)Bomber (3)Defender (4)Phantom (3)Firespray-31

              (4)Lambda-class Shuttle (4)Imperial Aces

SOONtir -  (6) Rebel Aces

With the FFG Store showing all of these being Out of Stock I'm wondering if there is a release or re-release schedule anywhere and if so; where?


According to the Upcomming page here. X-Wings and Tie Fighters are on the boat. That means they should be in stores mid Nov. Tie Advanced and Y-Wings are still listed as at the printer, so they're at least 6-8 weeks out yet.
