If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions—or you’re looking to grow your local player community—then we welcome you to our X-Wing™ 101 series of articles!

Today, we put the question to Zach Bunn, a multiple X-Wing Regional winner and founding member of Team Covenant. As an avid tournament player and a fan of the Empire, Zach offers a squad that aspiring Imperial players can throw together on a tight budget and still fly to great effect…
