That was fast!

Pleased to see they'll be releasing future packs with the corresponding expansions, always nice to have the minis for the first time.

So this guy has 24 Health, 4 Attack dice at range, Black and Grey defense dice, plus Aura and the pretty powerful Sorcery ability. I think this guy is going to be a powerhouse.

Plus I love the whole 'tempting the heroes to further my own power' bit devil

Can't help but think these are coming out a bit too quickly - the initial lieutenants aren't even out yet so they're hardly market-tested.

Mayve people are sucking up X-Wing miniatures so fast they think these can't fail but I'm not so sure.

You should read up on a guy named Pavlov. =P

I'm guessing they're basing the expected returns on the performance of the 1E LT figures. These ones being cheaper and having more content in the Plot decks, they'll probably do as well or better.

It would be nice it they'd just put the LTs in the box, though, if they're going to release them on the coat-tails of the actual expansion. =P

I hope these come out around the same time as the Shadow of Nerekhall expansion. By the time the 1st wave of Lieutenants come out we will have been long finished with quests from the base game.

I suspect this is what will happen, seems like from Nerekhall onward they'll probably release the lieutenants alongside the actual expansions.

And add to the expansion cost? No way.

He doesn't mean include them in the expansion box but release them at the same time as the expansion so you can buy both at the same time.

That's what the poster two above me is saying, but not the one I quoted.

So, they make Mirklace look like he's 1 square size, but then the box is pretty big (the size of Raythen/Serena).

Either he's really big and placed sideways in the box, or it's possible to recruit Mirklace a la Raythen/Serena?

Compare Mirklace to Rylan/Tristayne. He's obviously much bigger, even in the scale of the promo shots.

Mirklace is actually 2x2, Verminous is 2x1, and the other 2 are 1x1 plus the fact that Mirklace is taller I think that helps explain the box size.
