So i know as part of the stretch goals were to add the different looking hero units and "unique faction boards". Just looking at these the only thing unique about these are the fact each one has a different name. Are the supposed to special faction power that goes with these?

The faction powers were put on cards instead of the player boards. That way you can play your favorite faction (color) but have a different power each game.

I don't recall if the faction power cards were a Kickstarter bonus, were included in the base game, or came with one of the expansions. Maybe someone from EGG can clarify?

Faction powers (which ended up being cards instead of play mats) were an Add on, but provided free to the LE backers.

The Faction Power Cards (12) – US MSRP $7.99 -- SKU # 101877 These 12 cards detail a unique power that each faction in the game can selectively employ. When using these Faction Powers, the players can either: 1) draft these (one per player) in reverse starting order (last player selects first); or 2) blind draw their Power. The designer recommends option #1. (Included in The Limited Edition)
