Star Trek: Attack Wing gets an overhaul

December 13, 2016 - 10:55am
Star Wars: X-Wing and Star Wars: Armada are the space miniature dog fighting games to beat right now, and so Wizkids is trying to get back in the ring by overhauling their Star Trek: Attack Wing line.  They intend to make several changes that they hope will reinvigorate the line, they are to:
  • Release a digital edition of the rules incorporating all updated rulings and FAQs with the promise not to make any ships obsolete
  • Reconfigure new products so that you will only buy the new cards and tokens for a ship, without the ship miniature.  This is so if you already have a ship, you won't have to purchase another copy of the same ship just to get the additional cards and tokens.  However the packs will reference what ship you need to buy if you don't have the miniature yet
  • Introduce faction packs which will have a fleet of ships of a single faction ready to play, and at a lower cost than buying them as individuals
  • They will continue to work towards improving the paint quality of the miniatures
  • Finally they are exploring a process for fans to be able to submit content suggests to Wizkids for possible inclusion in future sets
All this together says that they are serious about improving the game and making sure you can get up and running with the least amount of duplicate items and money spent.  All changes are effective immediately, except in Europe where the changes will happen in 2017.  So if you haven't played Star Trek: Attack Wing yet, now might be a good time to take another look.
