Fantasy Flight Games has given us a preview of the M12-L Kimogila Expansion Pack that is part of the Wave XII release for Star Wars: X-Wing!

Get ready to arm your missiles, load torpedoes, line up a bullseye, and launch your attack with a preview of the M12-L Kimogila that is part of the upcoming Wave XII release for Star Wars: X-Wing. The M12-L Kimogila Fighter Expansion Pack includes one pre-painted miniature, four ship cards, and ten upgrades. The Kimogila is a blunt instrument that is capable of withering coordinated firepower and has a sizable ordinance capacity. It does have a hard time maneuvering but excels at the initial, head on approach and engagement. It has 3 Atk, 1 Agi, 6 Hull, and 2 Shields to withstand damage in the initial pass and, with the new Bullseye firing arc, you can maximize your damage output.

In X-Wing, all this wanton destruction tracks back to the ship’s signature bullseye firing arc . A narrow firing arc within the ship’s larger firing arc, the bullseye firing arc aims from between the guide pegs on the ship’s base and extends to Range “3.” Any ship that the M12-L Kimogila fighter catches in its bullseye firing arc is denied the ability to spend focus tokens or evade tokens to modify the results of its defense dice. Immediately, this adds tremendous value to all the hit and critical hit results that the Kimogila’s attacks may generate, lending even the lowliest of the Kimogila’s pilots an edge to their attacks.

The pilots of the Kimogila are diverse and have their unique styles that caters to the punch their vessel has. When Dalan Oberos catches his foes in his bullseye firing arc, he doesn’t just deny them the defensive benefits of their focus and evade tokens; he gains a free target lock. The other ace pilot, Torani Kulda, will force enemies to either discard all of their focus and evade tokens or suffer one point of damage if caught in the firing arc.

Kimogila Fighter

Produced by MandalMotors and flown by enforcers of the Hutt kajidics and other criminal cartels, the M12-L Kimogila fighter was dreaded by spacers across the Outer Rim for its ordnance capacity and the withering torrents of coordinated fire it could unleash. The M12-L Kimogila Expansion Pack brings this heavy fighter to life in X-Wing™ as a blunt instrument that trades maneuverability for raw destructive power. Its pre-painted miniature starfighter comes with four ship upgrades and ten upgrades, many of which reward you for catching your foes in the ship’s new bullseye firing arc.

The M12-L Kimogila Fighter Expansion Pack is available for pre-order online or at your FLGS. The Wave XII Expansion Releases will launch in the fourth quarter of 2017.
