X-Wing: X-Wing Expansion Pack As the primary starfighter of the Rebellion, the X-wing is a well-rounded machine that features powerful deflector shields and potent laser cannons, and can be armed with deadly proton torpedoes. The X-Wing Expansion Pack for the X-Wing Miniatures Game contains one striking X-wing miniature, plus its necessary cards, tokens, and dial. Also included are four skilled pilots, including one of the Rebellion's most distinguished and capable pilots, Wedge Antilles. This is not a complete game experience. A copy of the X-Wing Miniatures Game Core Set is required to play.

Worth your attention in this expansion more than any other is Wedge Antilles. Indeed, he's worth the price of admission all by himself and I have yet to see anybody field an X-Wing without him at the controls. He has the double whammy of being highly skilled (9) whilst also reducing a defender's agility (and therefore rolled defense dice) by one. All of a sudden the X-Wings and TIE Fighters become that little bit imbalanced in favour of the Rebels, and it shows in gameplay. Garven Dreis is a good support character too, and a host of droid upgrades are included that make this a worthwhile purchase.
My one concern as per the X-Wing in the core set remains: this is a very delicate model, the cannons in particular, and needs to be handled with care. A top tip: should the cannons bend out of shape, run a glass of cold water, then hold the model gently in a pair of pliers and steam it over a boiling kettle. Bend the cannons back into shape, then dip the whole thing into the cold water. For best results, refrigerate for a brief period. This has worked like a charm for my two models that got bent out of shape in transit.
Well, the X Wing Expansion does provide several unique elements which you don't get with the basic set. To start with the cards you get include Wedge Antilles, and it seems the model itself is based on Wedge's ship. The reason I say this is because in the attack on the Death Star Wedge is hit on the right engine and has to pull out of the attack, and look there on the model the X Wing has a blackened, battle damaged right engine! Now its that sort of attention to detail that fans like me find hard to resist.
As well as Wedge there are cards for Garven Dreis (Red Leader) and more droids and other options to upgrade and modify your ships. So although you might want to stick to buying the basic set if you wanted to build up a squadron of X Wings, its still worth buying the X Wing Expansion just once to get the unique cards, and a slightly distinct model for your game.
After ignoring it for more exotic ships I've come running back. You just can't argue with the stats and the choice of pilots.
Lots of world championship squads are just X-wings and for good reason.
Check out the stats on Luke with Wedge and Biggs thats a cheap elite team you can get early on and kick some serious ass!
With a stat line of 3,2,3,2
thats 3 Fire power
and 2 Shields.

Marksmanship (This is the one your bothered about)
Other than this Wedge has had a trying time, yes he does kill TIE Fighters, but I've killed him plenty of times too, and he can be a big loss/hole depending on how you play.
A friend took him against me the other day and placed the boost upgrade (Falcon) on him, I was watching this with interest as I've toyed with the idea myself. On the last turn (as we were playing to an hour limit) the boost took him out of two TIE firing arks and potentially saved his life as he was on his last remaining hull point. This will probably be something I will look at again.
My model is good and I have no complaints about that, potentially they could be brittle and the gun spines might break off, time will tell. I am already looking at how potentially I will repair these. ;-)
