If you wanted to substitute minis for the paper cutouts, how many would you realistically need? Are there really many situations where you're going to need 10 kobolds on the board, for instance?

Cardboard monsters provided in the box should be enough to handle any situation, so this is a good number to start with.

On the other hand, situations in which you need more miniatures may happen, since extremely unwise (or bold) players could provide many cards to the EK which allow him to spawn more monsters.

I actually meant how many miniatures would I need if I didn't want to use the cardboard ones at all.

How often do you need to use all of one kind of monster at once?

Well, these minimum numbers should cover any situation (except, as I said, en extremely lucky EK owning cards that allow him to spawn more monsters of a kind)

11 Kobolds
8 Orcs
11 Skeletons
10 Zombies
5 Ogres
1 Evil Mage
1 Death Knight
1 Chaos Fighter

hope this helps
