If you're like me, you like to personalize your minis collections as much as possible. You might paint up your figures in special colors. Maybe you get special bases. Or you get custom dice. Now, Fantasy Flight is letting you add some more personality via their faction-specific Damage Decks (note: they're the same cards, but feature a different ship for the artwork depending on the faction in question).
From the post:
The space battles of Star Wars™: X-wing encompass every era of the Star Wars saga, putting you in command of an array of starfighters from seven distinct factions. No matter if you fly T-65 X-Wings in the name of the Rebellion or perform devastating bombing runs with the Separatist Alliance’s Hyena-class Droid Bombers, one thing is sure: your ships will take damage.
Soon, you’ll be able personalize your X-Wing squadrons while declaring loyalty to the faction of your choice. Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce seven new damage decks for X-Wing:
- Rebel Alliance Damage Deck
- Galactic Empire Damage Deck
- Scum and Villainy Damage Deck
- Resistance Damage Deck
- First Order Damage Deck
- Galactic Republic Damage Deck
- Separatist Alliance Damage Deck
Stay on Target
Whether your ships are hit by blasters or proton torpedoes, the damage they take in a game of X-Wing is normally tracked by the standard damage deck included in the X-Wing Core Set. With these damage decks, however, you can personalize the look of your squadron by replacing this deck with one that matches the colors of your chosen faction.
Each deck contains a complete set of thirty-three illustrated damage cards that correspond to those in the standard damage deck. While the text of these cards might match, their graphic design makes it clear that your squadron belongs to a particular faction. But these decks do more than simply indicate where your loyalties lie. The cards themselves cleary pinpoint the damaged portion of your ship in Aurebesh on a diagnostic display of one of your faction's starfighters.
