X-Wing: FAQ v4.3.0

Greetings Programs.

Today I’m going to post up my thoughts on the Fantasy Flight Games X-Wing FAQ v4.3.0, came out this week and goes fully tournament legal on 17/03/2017.  This post might be pretty dull if you don’t actually play X-Wing, you have been warned.

First up, if you don’t have a copy of the latest FAQ you can get it here: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/x-wing/

It’s in the FAQ section at the bottom of the page under the ‘Support’ heading.

X-Wing Ships: The JumpMaster 5000

Greetings Programs.

Once again it is the first working day of the weekly slog and I have been thinking about which of the many X-Wing ships I would like to cover next.


I figured that I would jump over the Scum faction (you remember at the start when I said I play more Empire & Scum than Rebels, that’s going to start showing in these ship write

One interesting thing with the Scum faction, they have the most large based ships of any faction.  The Empire has 3, the Rebels have 3, the Scum have 5.  So as we talk more about the Scum expect to see more about various large based ships.

X-Wing Ships: The VT-49 Decimator

Greetings Programs.

I am enjoying talking about various X-Wing ships, I hope you are enjoying reading about them.  I am going to continue doing so.  In this case I am going to go back to talking about Imperial Ships for a little while, this time we’re going to look at the VT-49 Decimator, this is the first large base ship I’m going to cover (it won’t be the last) and it’s quite the beast.

The introduction of large base ships happened way back in the early days of X-Wing with the Millennium Falcon & Slave-1, the Decimator didn’t come along until later but it made big impact and it still sees lots of play today.  The reason for this is the sheer power and resilience of the ship.  The Decimator is tough and dangerous with lots of options for upgrades and customisations.
