I'm guessing they just make things harder? My FLGS got both in today was getting the base for sure but don't know about the extra aliens

I'm assuming you only need one box? It just swaps out aliens right?

I'm not going to bother with the elite army. IMO it doesn't add anything but toughness to the game, and I am already having a tough time as it is. I do still want the KS exclusive stuff that I did not get with my rookie status though, but only so I can fully play the downloadable missions.

I'd start with just the base game for now and make sure you enjoy it. Once you've done that and played through it enough times to where the blue and green aliens aren't as much of a challenge, or you want to create your own, then pick up the expansion. You only really need one as well, unless you're going for more of one type of Alien than the expansion comes with.

Get the base game, then buy the elite aliens when you have finished the campaign and want to replay at a higher difficulty. I don't consider it a must-have expansion out of the gate, although the elite aliens do have some interesting special abilities. *I don't own the expansion myself, but I read about a lot of the details during the Kickstarter.

Wouldn't buy it. While they sure are fun and good stuff for the money I am struggling with winning missions as is. Right now I'd rather buy a pink alien army. The teddy bear edition.

LOL Bought the Elite army yesterday without having played the game yet.


Who knows if I'll ever use em :)

Glad the game is challenging though. I think having the base game be tough as-is is great.

Makes things way more exciting.
