I guess I'm missing when these are used. The Manuel and quick reference seem pretty straight forward, but I'm unclear how/when the cards in hand will come into play?

Thanks!

Action cards usually explicitely tell you when they come into play.
Mission cards are immediately revealed and score once the condition is met.

Easy enough. Just to clarify, I don't have to use an action card to attack in combat, right?

Correct. you don't have to use anything special to attack with any unit.

Might as well piggyback on this thread. If I have an action card that says to play during Combat Phase, can it be during my opponent's Combat Phase?

No, I dont think so: it's refering to your combat phase in your turn.

Hmmm... usually 'abilities' are written more specifically in that case. The card would say 'your combat phase' instead of 'during combat phase.'

Actually, you're right, it was discussed on the CMON forum:

http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/showthread.php?55984-Act...

Ted: "With the ACTION cards we pretty much intended each card to be played either during your turn or one of your opponent's turns but not either or."

The Game FAQ now reads: http://www.rivetwars.com/docs/rw_faq_14_01b.pdf

Q - Can I use Action! cards such as “Masks! Masks!”, “Strafing Run”, or “Incoming!” during an opponent’s combat phase?

A - Yes. Action cards can be played during either player’s phase listed as on the card. Note,however, that Action cards only provide the benefits listed on the card, and do not circumvent the base rules of the game, unless otherwise noted.(Example: “This. Is. Marta.” is an Action card that grants a unit additional movement. As a model cannot move during the opponent’s movement phase, playing this card during that time will give no benefit.)

I've juet uploaded some community Action and Secret Mission cards which were built using the Card Builder.

I'm not exactly sure who made what. But I think a lot of them were made by comedianmasta from the CMON forum.

Some of these are pretty good you can find them in the Files section of the Rivet Wars BGG page.
