Essential for TIE swarms Review by Weatherwax
Game Play
Quality
Price
Value
While it has fallen out of favor lately, the swarm of TIE Fighters is an iconic part of Star Wars space battles. Utilizing their combined firepower to make up for their individual weakness, the swarm can batter through even the most potent defenses through sheer number of dice rolls. While the Core set does give two fighters and with all the other stuff is a better deal (since you will need more dice than there are in a single set), this expansion does offer one fantastic reason to get it: Howlrunner. The leader of the squadron pursuing the Falcon from Cloud City, Howlrunner is one of the best TIE Fighter pilots in the Empire. Her ability improves every ship that stays close to her by letting them reroll an attack dice. Since the TIE swarm is essentially playing a game of dice attrition (hoping your opponent gets bad luck enough times to destroy him/her), being able to potentially reroll a die with every single attack is incredible.

There are a few other pilots as well with decent abilities but are hampered by the generally weak abilities of the TIE Fighter (but cheap enough to be filler if needed). (Posted on 11/12/2015)
Go Ahead and Buy 3 or 4 Review by matthew

What you're probably gonna wanna do is buy a few of these and run Howlrunner and Swarm Tactics. By themselves these guys aren't too much of a hassle but can be a real headache for your opponent if you run several. Experiment with other types of TIE as well, like Defenders and Punishers.

Simply the best Review by ben

Not flashy, not special but the base TIE is probably the best all around performer in x-wing. For a ship that was included in the base set the TIE is still at a the forefront of competitive play. The swarm tactic is still viable and there is no better point filler than a base academy tie.

Every Imperial player needs a good 3-7 of these ships. Purchase a few of these sets, you're going to need them! (Posted on 10/20/2015)
Great Pilot Additions Review by Dan

The model itself is the same as the ones that come in the Core Set. You want to buy this expansion for the unique pilot cards that come with it! Howlrunner is the perfect complement for those who want to fly a tight TIE formation, as it adds the ability for any friendly ship in range 1 to reroll an attack die. Backstabber adds another great ability, allowing you to roll an additional attack die when attacking from outside a defender's firing arc. Very thematic! Nice art as always, and a great additional miniature for your TIE swarm. (Posted on 10/15/2015)
Howlrunner: A must-have Review by Andrew
Game Play
Quality

TIE swarms and mini-swarms are still a time honored tactic in the X-Wing Miniatures Game. However, TIE fighters have one action missing on their action bar: the target lock. But there's a pilot in this pack who aids that.

Enter Howlrunner, the most expensive regular TIE in X-Wing. Her ability allows for each friendly ship at range 1 to reroll one attack die when using their primary weapon. Now the swarm has the ability to make the most of it's two dice per attack roll. Paired with Swarm Tactics, an upgrade card that allows for another ship to have the same pilot skill as the equipped pilot at the start of combat, and Howlrunner is a fantastic pilot.

The other two pilots are not bad, but Howlrunner is the queen of this set. If you run basic TIEs, at least one of these expansions is a must-have. (Posted on 10/14/2015)
Swarm!! Review by scott

I grabbed a couple of these with the core set because I like the idea of running many TIE's. Howlrunner was a nice surprise to say the least, and now I may need to get a couple of more...

As always the models are beautiful to display even when not playing... (Posted on 10/12/2015)
Howlrunner.....'nuff said Review by Tim

.....wait, you want more?

Ok, let's face it, since 1977 these things have been a part of the sci-fi landscape, and any Star Wars dogfight game will include them. When it comes to X-wing miniatures, these guys are the point fillers in an Empire force. With swarms, the more the merrier. And the manueverability of the TIE is excellent for swarm attacks.

And yes, Howlrunner is one nasty lady. (Posted on 10/10/2015)

If you fly Imps you must have this. Tie swarms are a great strategy and getting an amazing card like Howlrunner is one of the main reasons. Buy this right after you get your starter kit. (Posted on 10/9/2015)

This is the quintessential Imperial ship for anyone looking to play as the Empire. With great pilots like HowlRunner and Dark Curse leading your swarm, you can really strike fear into the hearts of Rebel scum players. The maneuvers are very flexible and the actions provide great options to any situations that could arise. Get one. Get two! Get eight!!!!! (Posted on 10/9/2015)
Stronger as a swarm or good to fill in gaps in your squad Review by Micah

The TIE fighter is a great miniature and there's nothing quite like throwing eight TIEs at your enemy and overwhelming them with precision team tactics! You get a little more bang for your buck with the starter set but you gotta get some of the individual ones for the pilots and upgrade cards specific to this expansion. Great deal on a classic cornerstone to the imperials! (Posted on 10/6/2015)
