So, I'm buying version 2 cores and narrow selection of ships but I would still like to get at least at-home use from a T-65 and T-70 from version 1 that I already own. Any clever ideas for updating their dials? I'm trying to come up with a way to transfer the new dial maneuvers onto the back of their existing dials to flip for v2 use. Ideas? Feel free to point me to an existing link since I suspect there is already one that I just didn't find.

Proxy cards. Print out a stack of cards for each ship, one maneuver for each card. During play, for each ship, select one card during the Planning Phase. You can make them as fancy as you like, make a table in Word or Google Docs, print them out, cut them up, maybe sleeve them with a Magic basic land or bulk common so they feel more card-like.

Second ed links for reference:

http://xwing-miniatures-second-edition.wikia.com/wiki/T-70_X...

Keep in mind that in Second Edition, the T-65 and T-70 X-wings are in different factions and aren't supposed to fly together. But for kitchen table X-Wing, you do you

You can download the dial for every available ship there. resize them to 44mm. A program like GIMP or Photoshop will probably be easiest, but whatever you can find works. Most are already sized correctly, but a few are off.

Print them out in color, then cut them out. You can cover the existing dials and just you the smallest bit of glue if you don't want them to be permanent. You may not need the glue at all, but I found having just a dab from a gluestick made sure the overlay would spin just like the original.

That is what I used for my dials while waiting for 2nd ed to come out and it worked great. I still use it for a few dials for ships that they didn't give enough of in the conversion kits (TIE Bombers, and TIE Interceptors)
