Here are some links that I find useful for the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures game. Some of them are general purpose, some are here because I view them myself on occasion, and some are here because I frequently get asked where such-and-such a thread of mine is. Thanks ffgjosh for pinning this thread!

 

For newer players, the categories are generally listed in order of importance for getting a good understanding of the game. If you have suggestions on other sections or topics to add, list them here and I'll likely add them!

CorSec Engineering (http://corseceng.com/) has templates, bases & mats, but highest on my wishlist are their customizable replacement dials.

The replacement dials look cool.  I'm curious what people that have purchased them think.  A little pricey when including shipping.  Probably cant' use them in tournaments?

None of them have dates?

Just looks like a list of retailers.

Really hoping perth Australia hosts a few.

 

As per FFG's article, the dates are determined by the store, so any stores you are interested in, you will need to check their calendars or contact them directly.

Bump, and if anyone has any suggestions on other useful links, list them below!

 

A compiled list of all known optional Pilot Abilities and Upgrades. It should be completely up to date with what we all currently know. If anything is missing, let me know and I'll add it.

Are you planning on putting descriptions for each one?

In what way do you mean descriptions? Descriptions of the abilities themselves or why they are optional?

Descriptions of the abilities -- I'm just thinking the list of "stuff" might be more helpful if you could see what they all do. Especially for newer players, it would be a nice consolidated list of all the effects in the game.

This can be done. To be perfectly clear I really only intend to include the effects that are optional, for now at least. I could add in more at a later time. For now I'll get to work on listing out the effect text of each card.

Would it be possible to add The Big X-Wing Trade Thread to this front page?

I also think the X-Wing Micro Hangars are worth an add.

Thanks for this amazing resource.

 

Done! I added the trade thread under Community (might change where it is later, but that seemed like the best fit for now), and the Micro Hangers are under Customization (now broken out from Repaints and Scratch Builds).
