I am considering picking up this game. I noticed the Plaid Hat website is offering extra figures and dice for sale. From reading the forums, it is my understanding the extra figures could be used for various special enemies or extra minions. Would one extra set of figures cover my bases? I understand I may not necessarily need them but if I want to have a figure for every special enemy would one set do the trick?
One thing that you might not know about the game yet, is that the availability of minion figures can affect the number of monsters that need to be placed.
For example, suppose that there are 4 Rat Warriors on the tile, and a minion surge comes along and indicates that 3 Elite Rat warriors are to be placed. Since the game only comes with 6 Rat Warrior figures, the rules specifically mention that in this situation only 2 elite rat warriors would be placed. I know I would tend to forget this if I had figures for everything.
