4.0 out of 5 stars Great roll kid, that was one in, er, eight... 7 Nov 2012

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's Star Wars Episode IV-VI dogfighting on your tabletop, and you get to play with X-Wings and TIE Fighters. What more do you need to know?

The rules are simple, gameplay is fairly fast, and the components are beautiful. And it's basically 'playing with Star Wars toys' but with a rule system. However, the core set only gives you three ships and you'll soon want to expand your squads. This is where it gets expensive. In fact, many people are investing in two core sets and at least one of each expansion.

And with Wave 2 around the corner, offering A-Wings and TIE Interceptors, along with big ships like the Falcon and Slave I, it's more than likely you'll be looking at an outlay of ~100 for a set you'll be happy with. Fantasy Flight Games know what they're doing with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars star wars X-wing 21 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game arrived on Thursday and we played our first game on the Friday, the set-up for this game is strait forward and simple. 2 x tie fighters and an X-wing are included in the game complete with everything needed (apart from a flat surface to play it does include everything!)
Each model comes with its own stand and multiple pilot stats. You can have anybody from Luke Skywalker to an academy pilot.
The models themselves are extremely good quality, painted to a good standard and if the other craft in the range are equally as good I don't think you will be disappointed. , The scale seems to be about 1:144 so I would suggest you are not going to see a star destroyer! Although the Millenium Falcon and Slave1 are in the pipeline along with an A-wing and the Tie strike fighter on top of the already released Y-wing and Advanced Tie fighter (Darth Vaders ship)

Movement and turning sticks, weapon range stick and all the markers are made of a good quality heavy-duty card (I personally would have preferred a plastic but I think with normal use you have got years of use with the supplied templates!)
The rules work on a igo-ugo system of pilot quality, the lowest quality pilot moves first then up in proceeding levels of experience until the the top dog moves.
Firing is in reverse with the best firing first and working down (at this moment in time its worth mentioning if you are in a perfect shooting position and you get hit and destroyed, all that hard work will go up in a puff of smoke!)
In the evening we had some eight games using 2-3 Tie fighters an a single X-wing, we varied the quality of pilots and weapon and equipment loads for the craft (the x-wing can vary its weapons and equipment - the Tie can only vary the pilots!

I am a hardened wargamer of 50 years of age. I have played many many miniatures games and board games. The majority have some flaws. Somethings that leave a sour taste, or perhaps need a house rule.

X-Wing is perfect. The game play is perfect, the models are beautiful, the other components are both functional and beautiful.

the only criticism that could possibly be raised is that the game is not cheap. But then most "cheap" games are nothing like this good. You are paying for top quality components.

Could you play this game with little paper models basically for free? Yes you could, but would you want to?

5.0 out of 5 stars We'll need to engage them ship to ship... 9 Jun 2013
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If I have one question for Fantasy Flight beyond "would you like me to change my payroll account to your number?" it is "why didn't you do this sooner?" XWM marries a tried and tested gaming formula (à la Warhammer or Wings of Glory) with arguably the biggest film franchise of all time. It's a match made in Heaven, or, at the very least, the nearest 3'x3' flat space you can find to play. In summary, X-Wing Miniatures is excellent, but be warned: it's an atrocious money sink. Read on to find out more...

This is the core set, although 'Core' is in very grave danger of being a misnomer. 'Bare essentials' would have been more appropriate. Included in the box is, admittedly, enough to get a small scale, 2 player game of Miniatures going. On the Rebel side, one T65 X-Wing, and on the Imperial side, two TIE/LN starfighters. You read that right: Fantasy Flight have wisely considered their audience and sidestepped the New Trilogy. I also like that, with the in-universe assertion that Rebel pilots often fought their opposites two- or three-to-one, the ratio of 2:1 is faithfully maintained in this game. The models are absolutely gorgeous, and I breathed a sigh of relief to know that I wouldn't be hand painting them, although I've seen plenty of examples already where gamers have decided to go all Warhammer on their fleets regardless. These sit atop plastic bases into which pilot tokens are inserted to create the final playing pieces. My main concern is that the models, especially the X-Wing with its little cannons, are INCREDIBLY delicate. This is not a tabletop game for the clumsy or heavy handed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The force is strong with this one 16 April 2013
By J Davey
Verified Purchase
This is actually my second core set of X-wing, mainly as it's the quickest and cheapest way of getting a nice little group of fighters together. Plus there's no squabbling over dice and range sticks etc. As others have mentioned, this game is a lot of fun and there aren't big rule books to plough through before you play. Just a pity that the second wave ships are so difficult (and expensive), to get hold of.
