I have purchased the game which comes with the 4 German and 4 US cards. What do I do if I want to use different characters, are there any extra cards available, or are there any guidelines on designing your own?
Hi Victor! Each Character has its own card which is unique to him and accurately balanced and thoroughly tested to ensure it adds tactical options to the game while respecting both historicity and playability, so the best way is to add new Characters to your collection! There are currently two additional Characters available other then those in the starter packs, with two more due out next week, and we aim to release about one new one per faction each month... we are also making new factions which of course have different weapons and Characteristics... we will also soon release extra card packs that can be used to further customize your characters...
of course nothing stops you to design your own cards too and you are welcome to share them on the forum!
I'm afraid not at the moment, we will certainly make a character cards pack at some point but will have to wait until we have a dozen or so released... however if you look at the boardgamegeek page for the first version there is a (non official) TROOP CREATION SYSTEM:
