First Order and Resistance are separate from Rebels and Empire.

Recommended Posts

In the X-wing 2nd edition if you read the FAQ when it talks about the factions is says the First Order and Resistance have become separate factions from the Empire and Rebels. So what about other ships for them right now? Currently both factions have only 3 and 4 ships so they will probably need to add more. What do you all think?

FO:

- TIE FO

- TIE SF

- Upsilon Shuttle

- TIE Silencer

Resistance:

- T-70 

- YT-1300

- SF-17

 

RZ-2 likely to be added to that list soon-ish, and presumably Disney will drop more merch in Episode IX next year.

But, yeah, the current state of the FO and resistance is specifically one of the reasons I think it's increased in likelihood that we'll get a Clone Wars-era set of factions.

No such thing if we're referring to the Clone Wars.  At least the designs are more interesting than reversing the paint scheme on a TIE fighter or stretching the wings on an Interceptor/Avenger.

Gunboats are out of the Empire kit. Maybe theyll made them 1st order ships. Maybe some others would get the same treatment. This would allow to introduce the new factions with a reasonable amount of ships without the need for the players to buy many xpac at once...

The movies where bad but some concepts in there would make interesting material for xwing. My #1 being those droid ships...

Gunboats are listed in the Galactic Empire conversion kit.

I think the A-wing is the only thing likely to get a conversion that isn't currently available to the Resistance or FO factions. They could stretch for more but I'm not sure how likely it is. Is there any material that shows the First Order using gunboats or older TIEs or whatever?

They could certainly add some new ships with Wave 2, however. Not sure what's missing from the ST movies besides the A-wing, but it's hard to imagine the Resistance and FO being well balanced at release when each of the other factions has more options than the ST factions have combined.
