I will start off by saying that I have not actually purchased anything or even played this game yet, but I plan on making some purchases soon. 

 

My question is this: With one set of Imperial Aces could I use both Carnor Jax and Kir Kanos?  Basically, their card art illustrates them both in the red TIEs, so would they each have to be represented on the table by red TIEs therefore requiring me to have two of the Imperial Aces sets to use them both simultaneously?  I am not even sure if I would ever run into this problem when building a list, but it was just a curiosity that I had.  The same could be said if I wanted to use two Royal Guard Pilots.  The main reason I question it is because all of them just list "TIE Interceptor" as their ship and not specifically "Red TIE Interceptor" or anything like that.

 

Thanks for any information you can provide!

Forget about the paint job. Use the models as whatever interceptor pilot you want.

X-wing is played over a series of game rounds. Turn is a type of maneuver.

Yes, you can use them both. It's the card base that's important, not so much the paint job of the model.

Isn't one of the named pilots on the back of another one for imp aces?  Weren't people really upset about that?

Nope. Royal Guard is on the back of both. Just checked.

Probably on the backs of Saber Squadron Pilots.

Not probably.  The unique pilots are all on their own cards (four pilot bases total).  If you have one Imperial Aces pack and two TIE Interceptor packs you can use all four unique named pilots in the Imperial Aces pack.  On the back sides of the four cards are two Royal Guard and two Saber Squadron pilots.  (Kir and Jax have RG, Lorrir and Cowall have Saber).

If people were upset, they were getting upset based on inaccurate information.

I only said probably because I didn't have it in front of me. =P

 

People are upset because they can't, say, fly Kir Kanos and two Royal Guard Pilots at the same time (using a regular-paint TIE Interceptor for the third ship). I think it's a reasonable complaint. If you want to fly Kir Kanos and two Royal Guards, you have to buy a second Imperial Aces set, even if you have other TIE Interceptor models.

No. I strictly enforce WYSIWYG at all of my games!! No exceptions!! (totally kidding here, stick a concord grape on the end of the peg  for all I care). It's basically a Two-D game so as long as you are using the appropriate sized base you can proxy the ship with anything you want. Even fruit!!

Wonderful.  Thank you!


Repainting a regular TIE Interceptor red is very, very, very easy if you want to play two Royal Guards.

To me the "complaint" about Aces is that you can't run Kir or Jax and two RGP.
