4.0 out of 5 stars Stay On Target.... 28 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
The B Wing fighter is one of the wave 3 ships for the Star Wars X Wing Miniatures Game. It is the most offensively minded of the Rebel Alliance ships, but that said they don't go completely over the top. There are no overly powerful attacks, with the ships basic attack dice being the same as the X Wing. It does however come with several cards detailing different weapons options. Each weapon has its own pro's and con's and the more powerful weapons are reflected by very high points values. Using all of the ships weapon hard points (and its impressive targeting computer) you have a great selection of attacking options. However, this would make for a very expensive ship points wise.

Unfortunately the B Wing is also the slowest of the Rebel's ships, slower even than the Y Wing. It turns slightly worse than an 18 wheeler truck and if you get a tie fighter behind you there is little you can do to shake it off without a wing man. The B Wing does allow you to do a barrel roll (the only Rebel fighter with that maneuver) but this is more use in attack than in defence. Added to that there is no droid slot meaning the ship has few defensive options.

Fortunately though the B Wing is built like a tank. Played right as part of a formation the B Wing is very useful as a gunship, adding significant firepower to the Rebel fleet. On its own though the Imperials can fly rings around it.

The model for it is of the usual high standards, although there does seem some controversy over which way it sits on its stand. Most shots of the B Wing show it on its side where as the stand has it sitting vertically. In space this would be completely irrelevant but you still wouldn't mount an X Wing upside down for display so it seems odd the B Wing is mounted this way.

It's a great little ship though, as long as you use it for what it is designed for. A line of these heading towards the Imperials will soon make them scatter.

This is a great addition to the miniature collection. Although not particularly agile, this packs a wallop and can soak up damage. The model is beauifully made, too - one of my favourites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to your Rebel fleet (the first Rebel ship that can barrell roll!) 22 Aug 2013
By El_Tonio - Published on Amazon.com
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The B-Wing is one of four "Wave 3" expansion sets for the X-Wing miniatures game. I think there are some good reasons to add a few B-Wings to your Rebel fleet; here are those that really stood out the most to me.

First, the base stats for this ship include 3 attack dice, 1 defense dice, 3 hull, and 5 shields (having more shields than hull means they will be less effected by critical hits overall). All B-Wings also have the focus, target-lock, and barrel role actions (note: this is the first Rebel ships with the barrel role action). They can also be upgraded in several ways with a variety of previous and new modifications.

Second, you get 4 pilots (including 2 unique pilots with some very nice special abilities). Pilots include:

(1) Blue Squadron Pilot, a level 2 non-unique pilot that cost 22 points.

(2) Dagger Squadron Pilot, a level 4 non-unique pilot that costs 24 points.

(3) Ibtisam, a level 6 unique pilot that costs 28 points, who has a very handy offensive AND defensive special ability that reads, "When attacking or defending, if you have at least one stress token, you may reroll 1 of your dice."

(4) Ten Numb, a level 8 unique pilot that costs 31 points, whose very nice offensive special ability reads, "When attacking, 1 of your critical hit results cannot be cancelled by defense dice."

Third, it also includes five new upgrade cards (two of which is exclusive to this expansion set at the time it was released): (1) Proton Torpedoes -- a 4 point upgrade that came with several other Rebel ships; (2) Ion Cannon -- a 3 point upgrade also came with the Firespray-31 expansion; (3) Autoblaster -- an amazing 5 point upgrade whose hits cannot be canceled by defense dice (this will likely find just as much or more use on the Firespray-31); (4) Advanced Proton Torpedoes -- another awesome 6 point upgrade that gives you 5 attack dice and allows you to change up to 3 of your blank results to focus results (also comes with the TIE Bomber); and (5) Fire-Control Systems -- a nice 2 point upgrade that allows you to acquire a target lock on a ship AFTER you perform an attack.

As with all expansions, this one includes all tokens, dials, etc. that you need to use this ship in a game (though a copy of the base set is still needed to play).

Given all the nice new things it adds to the Rebel side, I think it is definitely a worthwhile addition to the game. Not to mention that the ship itself looks pretty cool. I liked it so much that I bought 4 of them (I probably won't use more than 1-2 at a time, but I figure better too many than too few).

The B-Wing, as with the other expansions, is impeccably painted. The included cards deepen gameplay choices and I have already seen a lot of use with this expansion.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best the alliance has to offer! 25 Nov 2013
By Christopher Sun - Published on Amazon.com

Barrel roll action on a gunship? insanity! added with the ability to field an HLC on this puppy, and you have yourself a very good and formidable shooting platform. The added insanity of a 2 point k-turn manuever is just unreal! while the agility is the minimum low, the whopping 8 hitpoint value (5 sheild/3 Hull) just makes this gunship a giant tank and able to trudge into critical range. Look to buy atleast 2 of these to form decent squads/combanations with other ships.

4.0 out of 5 stars B-Wing 28 May 2014
By R. Huffman - Published on Amazon.com

This was my favorite fighter in the Star Wars universe, but Fantasy Flight's pilot cards and maneuvers makes this ship not a good dog-fighter. I found the best strategy with the B-Wing is to go very slow and rotate around and shoot (like a mobile gun platform). The mini is great with an amazing paint job and mold. Overall, I am very happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A tough space fighter 5 Nov 2013
By Neko-san - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The B-Wing Expansion Pack is an expansion for the X-Wing Miniature Game, which happens to include a great model. The sculpt and paint of this miniature are really good. I wanted to buy this one just to collect, but I may try it in a friendly match.

This miniature is about 2" tall x 1.25" wide. Of course, it is at scale with other miniatures in the X-Wing Miniature Game such as the X-Wing and Tie Fighters.

In addition to the B-Wing, this expansion includes a stand and a base for the miniature, two ship tokens for the base, one maneuver dial, a rulesheet, and plenty of other tokens as those included for the X-Wing Miniature Game.

However, the cards included in the expansion take the spotlight after the miniature. This expansion includes:

4 ships/pilots: Ten Numb (8), Ibtisam (6), Dagger Squadron Pilot (4) and a Blue Squadron Pilot (2);
2 missile cards: 1 Avance Proton Torpedoes and 1 Proton Torpedoes;
2 cannon card: Ion Cannon and 1 Autoblaster;
1 sensor card: Fire-Control System:
1 reference card: Ion Token.

B-Wing is less agile than the X-Wing, but has the same attack power. It can not perform hard turns at speed 3, but instead it can perform a Koiogran turn at speed 2, and hard turns at speed 1 but with stress. It also takes stress on turn at speed 3 and straight at speed 4. This ship compensate on shields (5) instead and it also have a barrel roll maneuver.

Overall, this is good model for Star Wars collectors, but a tough fighter if you can master it.
