I don’t have any tactical genius or game experiences to impart today, just a blatant sales pitch for something cool. I wandered across a listing the other day for a Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures “Expansion Pack” that I had never seen before, and I was intrigued – Destroyed ship obstacles. They’re third party, not tournament legal, and not something I can see myself adding to my collection (I have too much stuff to carry around as-is), but it’s definitely cool, and I thought I might share it with my readers because it’s a unique concept.
The first one I found was the Corellian Corvette. Since then, options for a GR-75 Medium Transport, a Firespray-31, a YT-2400, and a VT-49 Decimator have all been added. There’s more photos of each on their respective product pages on Amazon (click the photos for links).
They’re expensive, I’ll admit, and most miniature gamers will look at it and say “I could do that, just gimme a drill, a big knife, and some weathering paints”. But for those who aren’t 100% focused on competitive play, and want some cool scenery for a casual game without having to put the effort to make their own, this really isn’t a bad idea.
