“We are the spark that’ll light the fire that’ll burn the First Order down.”
–Poe Dameron, Star Wars: The Last Jedi
The Empire may be gone, but its shadow still looms large across the galaxy. As X-Wing™ Second Edition ushers in a new era of starfighter combat in the Star Wars galaxy, the pilots of the Resistance aim to rekindle hope as they carry on the legacy of the Rebel Alliance.
Carrying on the torch first lit by the Rebellion against the Empire, the Resistance remains ever vigilant in its fight to maintain peace throughout the galaxy. With these expansions, you’re invited to join a new generation of heroes and experience the intense space combat seen in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi from behind the controls of these upgraded versions of iconic ships.
Beginning in X-Wing Second Edition, the Resistance has been spun off from the Rebel Alliance into its own distinct faction and, if you’re a veteran X-Wing player with an existing collection of ships, the Resistance Conversion Kit will bring your T-70 X-wing, YT-1300, and Resistance Bomber ships into the second edition, giving you everything you need to build your own Resistance squadrons. Then, whether you're a new player or a veteran, you’ll be able to grow your squadrons with two Resistance starfighter expansion packs, representing a new generation of pilots and ships in the ongoing Star Wars saga.
CONTINUE THE FIGHT
The Resistance is the only line of defense against the rising tide of the nefarious First Order. Like the Alliance to Restore the Republic before them, the pilots of the Resistance often find themselves outnumbered and outgunned. Fortunately, the Resistance has some of the most advanced starfighters from the entire Star Wars saga at their disposal. With the Resistance Conversion Kit, your first edition versions of these ships can be added to your X-Wing Second Edition squadrons right away.
This kit contains everything you need to upgrade your Resistance ship collection from the first edition to the second edition, including pilot cards, upgrade cards, and ship tokens. Amongst the new ship cards and tokens, you’ll find new versions of Resistance heroes like Poe Dameron and Rey, each ready to bring their unique abilities to your custom-built squadrons. These pilots are complemented by over one-hundred upgrade cards that you can use to customize your squadron to fit your play style, including ten Tech upgrade cards only available to starfighters from this era. Finally, the conversion kit gives you plenty of options for rounding out your Resistance squadrons, containing enough maneuver dials to convert three Resistance Bombers, three YT-1300s, and four T-70 X-wing fighters.
In addition to being present in the Resistance Conversion Kit, all of these Resistance pilots, ships, and upgrades will be fully implemented in the X-Wing Second Edition squad-builder app when they are released. A PDF with the point values of all Resistance pilots and upgrades will also be available for reference on our website. New players can also use the conversion kit and first edition versions of Resistance ships for even more options when building their squads!
