What do you mean by the different card? This, alternate layout? Or something different? Any chance of a piccie so I can verify?

Re: The Variant Commander Mail Away SteveD Theory!!!

SAS attack trooper is a definite no - he was later release. I'm certain there will be a black major and muton though. And there won't be any Q or Space.
