Has anyone used the Most Wanted expansion (miniatures) to add ships to the Rebels?

Are there cards that can be used for the rebels in the box?

sure you can, though Y-wings and Z-95's arent often included in tournament lists. you would need some rebel pilot cards (and corresponding ship token) for them from another product to play them as rebels.

Thanks for the reply. I don't play in tournaments, just looking to add some ships, and wanted to know if I could use the ships for Rebels instead of Scum.

For casual games:

Play however you like The minis are perfectly fine as rebel minis, but you'll need to proxy pilot cards, and the ship tokens will have the wrong colors (scum instead of rebel) and names.

For tournaments anyway:

There are no pilot cards for rebels in the box. For tournaments, you'll need pilot cards, which you only get from the rebel Z-95 and Y-Wing expansions.

The miniatures are the same as the rebel ones with a different paint job, and it's tournament legal to use the Y-Wings and Z-95 from Most Wanted as rebel miniatures.

There are other upgrades in Most Wanted, too - namely, BTL-A4 Y-wing and Bomb Loadout - where Most Wanted is the only source for the upgrade cards and it's absolutely possible and viable to use the cards with rebel Y-Wings, too.

To take this a step further - the y-wings in most wanted (excluding the named) are the same as the Rebel ones, just with different names. Statlines and pilot skill did not change for the generics, only going from astromech to salvaged astromech (presumably to prevent R2-D2 from being scummy, but it has allowed more freedom in scum ship design).

The Z-95s lost a pilot skill to gain an illicot, but that was the only change there.

As stated above, in casual do what you want, in tourneys you have to conform to the rules. If you want the exact same ship cards you can print out Rebel versions for home play. The key is to just have fun.

Awesome.. thanks everyone. I was hoping to get some extra minis and Most Wanted seemed like a good way to get 3 of them.
