The Scum and Villainy Conversion Kit contains everything that you need to take your existing colleciton of first edition Scum and Villainy ships into the game's second edition. Here, you'll find an assortment of second edition punchboard, ship cards, and upgrade cards, letting you bring the galaxy's most dangerous beings to life on your tabletop. In addition to being present in the Scum and Villainy Conversion Kit, all of the Scum and Villainy ships and upgrades found in the conversion kit will be fully implemented in the X-Wing Second Edition squad-builder at launch, giving you the opportunity to experiment with a full complement of new content. Likewise, first-time players can use the conversion kit and first edition expansions to get a feel for the game with as many different ships as possible!
Veteran X-Wing players will notice many new elements in the game's second edition, including the introduction of Force powers, multiple-use ordnance, changes to turrets, and several “quality of life” improvements for often-used mechanics. From launch, you’ll be able to incorporate notorious bounty hunters like Dengar and IG-88 and their signature ships into your squadrons, letting you build the squad that fits your play style.
In addition to the other changes, X-Wing Second Edition converts several ships from small bases to medium bases. Medium-base ships are a new addition to X-Wing Second Edition, filling the space between small-base and large-base ships. For Scum and Villainy, the G1-A Starfighter, M12-L Kimogila Fighter, and Scurrg H-6 Bomber have all been converted to medium-based ships for second edition. In addition to its cards and punchboard, the Scum and Villainy Conversion Kit supplies the bases and conversion pegs you need to bring these ships into the second edition.
