It starts. Fantasy Flight has announced that Rey, Finn, and Poe from Force Awakens will be coming to your X-Wing games with the release of Heroes of the Resistance.
With Heroes of the Resistance, Rey, Finn, Han Solo, and Poe Dameron all make the transition from the big screen to your tabletop. Rey and Han arrive as Resistance pilots for a new version of the Millennium Falcon with a sculpt and paint scheme that have been updated to reflect the ship's appearance in The Force Awakens. Finn supports the Resistance as a crew upgrade. And the galaxy's greatest pilot Poe Dameron can now fly to battle as Black One, sitting in the cockpit of his signature black T-70 X-wing.The X-Wing game is still going strong and shows no signs of slowing down. With more Star Wars movies on their way, FFG can milk this cow for years to come. And what better way to attract new players as well as intrigue the old than with the Millennium Falcon showing through the box.
Heroes of the Resistance introduces a new sculpt and paint scheme for the Falcon that faithfully represent all the changes that the ship underwent between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.The expansion is set to hit in the third quarter of 2016.
