Is this the same image used from one of the command cards in IA? Looks so familiar to me, can't quite figure out why....

FFG uses a lot of their art over again when it makes sense. Look at Arkham Horror, Arkham Sign, and Call of Cthulhu card game, lots of reused art between the three. Not always, but some very similar.

It only makes sense finacially to do it, plus their art is generally fantastic so no complaments.

The art from the Rebel Assault card is literally the cover of X-Wing: The Bacta War.

If you already have the artwork, why not use it?

Besides, this way FFG can churn out so much more content (I mean expansions!) in short order.

PS - AEG did the same thing with Tomb / Thunderstone artwork by Jason Engle

And I'd rather they do this than commission new art that is bad. The 2e AGoT LCG is missing a lot in the art department, hampering my enjoyment of it.

From all the interviews I've listened to with FFG designers it's very clear that art is a huge part of the expense of developing a game, so they definitely re-use it when they can. As long as they do so tastefully I have no problem with it.
