Fantasy Flight Games preview the Mining Guild TIE Expansion Pack for X-Wing….
Allying yourself with the Empire has many benefits. In addition to the copious profits the Mining Guild reaps from working with the Empire to harvest natural resources throughout the galaxy, it also receives its own complement of TIE fighters and other Imperial weaponry. Distinguished by their bold yellow paint scheme, these TIEs further set themselves apart from their Imperial counterparts with a notch cut in their stabilizers to improve visibility.

The result of these modifications is a TIE uniquely suited to meet the Mining Guild’s needs. Hugging tight to asteroids, these TIEs swoop into action whenever the Mining Guild’s operations are threatened. When it’s released as part of the second wave of expansions for X-Wing™, you’ll have the chance to add your own Mining Guild TIE to your Scum and Villainy squadrons with the Mining Guild TIE Expansion Pack.
This expansion contains everything you need to supplement your Scum and Villainy squadrons with one of these nimble fighters. Alongside the beautifully painted Mining Guild TIE miniature featuring the Mining Guild’s distinct paint scheme, you’ll find six ship cards, with four unique pilots ready to protect the Mining Guild’s profits. Your Mining Guild TIE can be further modified with five upgrade cards, while two Quick Build cards provide predefined combinations of pilots and upgrades for you to test all of the ship’s capabilities.
Greed Is Good
With Imperial construction projects advancing at an unprecedented rate, the demand for raw materials such as doonium gas has never been higher. The Mining Guild ruthlessly exploits new deposits of these raw materials on worlds across the galaxy, seeking to secure control of as many as possible.
Such valuable resources are bound to attract the interest of outside parties, of course, so it’s only natural for the Mining Guild to look for ways to protect its investment. A full complement of Mining Guild TIEs is more than enough to give any would-be thieves second thoughts before making a raid on a Mining Guild facility.
Retaining the characteristic speed and maneuverability of other TIE fighters, the Mining Guild variant has one important advantage over other models. Their trademark Notched Stabilizers help them weave in and out of asteroids with ease. As a result, every Mining Guild TIE ignores asteroids while moving, giving them an enormous amount of freedom to make strategic use of these obstacles.
With little to fear from asteroids, Mining Guild TIE pilots take a different approach to battle than most others who fly ships with only three hull and no shields. Free from the strict uniformity of the Empire, these pilots are able to express their own personal flavor, incorporating many of the tricks that characterize the Scum faction into their flying style. Foreman Proach, for example, assigns tractor tokens to enemy ships in his bullseye arc, giving him a chance to fling them into asteroids or other obstacles.
