Choose Ship's Captain Portrait

Postby Cripple X » 15 May 2016, 13:35

Could we please get the option to choose the portrait of our Ships' captains? In one of my fleets 6/10 ships have the same Captain portrait.

Could we maybe get a little arrow button on the Portraits that lets us cycle through the available options and choose one for each ship?

I also wouldn't mind if we added a female option or two for Chaos/Eldar/IN, but I understand how that request might be more difficult to fufill.

It would be great - plenty of official female pics that FFG can supply. :)

I second this notion, it's always great to have an abundance of the little things!

Could we get this a tad further and assign names to their captains too. Of course this would need plenty of more portraits to be done, but this will deepens immersion a lot. Specially if this means that if you order a captain executed in a moment of panic then it will change not only the portrait but the name and maybe the ship will take a hit on her experience points. So it becomes more meaning full to do this.

This could introduce a new mechanic to the game where if you execute too many admirals or too few it could have dire consequences on your rank/reputation with other factions as you may be seen too overzealous or a wimp. Striking a balance could be difficult I guess.

Little things go a long way sometimes. Agreed.
