(Yet Another) X-Wing Miniatures Squad Builder

NOTE: This builder is for First Edition ONLY! There is a fork for Second Edition.

Build Status


This is a squad builder for Fantasy Flight Games' X-Wing Miniatures game, completely in HTML and JavaScript. No backend is necessary. It can theoretically be dropped into any existing site, but since it uses a lot of styling from Twitter Bootstrap it may require some CSS trickery if you're using some other incompatible framework (e.g. Foundation).

Can I save squads or share them on $SOCIAL_NETWORK?

Saving: yes, if you provide a backend that adheres to the API. See my X-Wing Backend project for an example. Sharing, no.

Aren't there other squad builders out there already?



I wanted a project to work on and screw around with stuff like HAML and Bootstrap and Select2, etc.

When will this be done?

It's an ongoing process.


  1. Install Node.js to get npm.
  2. sudo npm install -g grunt-cli to install the global Grunt CLI.
  3. npm install to install the dependencies listed in package.json.
  4. grunt to build everything into the app directory. The builder is at app/index.html.


npm test


X-Wing Miniatures is by Fantasy Flight Games. Icons and fonts originally from GeckoTH's excellent PSD, available here. X-Wing symbols and ships fonts courtesy Hinny and Josh Derksen and are available as a Bower package. Maneuver dial support by @hpanderson. Fancy printout design inspired by TheKestrel on the FFG forums. German translation by failgod and strikegun from FFG Forums. Spanish translation by evil_wins Solo from BoardGameGeek forums and negroscuro. French translation by pejuaxel. Polish translation by Bober9000. Russian translation by Foxygunische Upgrade card text integrated into printouts by wffurr. Squad name in the permalink and obstacles choice modal by zacharyp.

I'm bad at keeping this up to date; see the About section of the builder.
