X-Wing Miniatures

One game that I hope my group plays soon, assuming we decide to do table top miniatures, is X-Wing from Fantasy Flight Games.

When and if we do, I’ve settled on a ship that I will consider my ‘personal’ starfighter: the Z-95 Headhunter.

This is one of the first ships that was referenced outside of the movies, in the first Han Solo book by Brian Daley, Han Solo at Star’s End.

For some reason I recently couldn’t find it in local stores, primarily a couple of Barnes and Noble bookstores that sell the game and miniatures.  I could find it before I actually wanted to pick one up, but kept holding off.

I eventually found one for sale at Amazon.com, so I ordered one.

My next step is to find a card template to make a custom pilot card for myself.

Edit: found one!

And now we’ll see if I’ll ever get to take her into combat.
