This bodes well to quell the fears that Descent would stop updating while Imperial Assault was out.

Also, there's 3 monster groups that I thought would be cut if cuts were going to be made, so it seems pretty likely that we'll get every monster released eventually.

And Ispher! Hooray for Non-Human/Elf/Dwarf/Orcs! Hopefully we see Steelhorns, Lyssa, and Karnon soon.

Why does Ispher look like he has been ingesting steroids?

What else would you do with them? They're not suppositories.

I'm still holding out hope for another mini expansion that adds another Healer and Mage class, because the current asymmetry kills me.

Wow never expected to see those monsters.

Ogres get massivly overhauled though.
Before they were virtually unusable in Act II and felt somehow downgraded from act I with the minion having a blue and red attack die, unable to get the surges for his abilities. Now they changed it to blue and yellow, meaning they have as much attack as in act I, but can at least barly reliable use their knockback now.
However they still only have one grey defense die in act II and with the new ability "fleshmonger", you even have to do damage to heroes before gaining anything from it.

So imo they remain a very strange (or even bad) monster in act II, but I guess it's still a somehow good choice for a reliable "knockback". Ynferneal Hulks easily wipe the floor with them though with their blue+yellow+red dice, only 2 HP less on the master, black defense die and the bloodrush/charge combination of the master hulks.

So let's see if something got changed for the Act I Ogres besides "fleshmonger". To me the ogres always were a choice to consider in act I and felt relativly powerful. Maybe they'll nerf them to make the act II versions feel like upgrades?

the new ogres seem weak to me.
Fleshmonger is a weak ability and will not be useful.

I'm still hoping they keep up the pattern and give us another Big followed by another Small.

It kills me that they announce these so far in advance. What's the point? Can't wait for this one though.

"Brewing?" It's about time the heroes got to visit a brewery; Grisban's thirsty.

Really like ispher for a coop game. You can be just healing your friends and forget about you.

Also, from the pics, I love the sculpts although they probably come with tons of moldlines, but I still love them.

I bought the conversion kit with no minis (don't like the minis from the first edition honestly) and will be proxying almost everything but I will buy this one, for sure!
