Does anyone else feel like the dragon expansion is kind of limited in scope? No new heroes, one boss, only one new enemy type, 4 quests. I was hoping that there would be stretch goals to add content to it and make it more into a real expansion, but it doesn't feel like that is where they are going with this.

Call me old-fashioned, but I like traditional, big-box expansions, with lots of content (think: all the Act 2 stuff). I don't like the kind of "expansions" miniatures companies do (3 new miniatures, each with a unique sculpt!!!!!!!!!!). I don't like modern FFG expansions (IA). That's what the dragon expansion feels like, at the moment.

And... I'm a sucker, so I'm buying it anyway. I'm just not thrilled about it.

I guess you'll mostly be paying for the big chunk of plastic that is the momma dragon. That seems to be what the expansion is all about.

The dragon addon also states "90+ cards and tokens".

Since there are probably only 8 creature cards (green, blue, red, puple: each 1 card and 1 scroll) you can hope for more skills and items for characters.

And don't forget the raid-rules (10 heroes vs. dragon).

I think this expansion is really well thought out. Yes you're right, it's not a huge big box expansion. That's what the Act II expansion is for. this is an experience that revolves around one boss. It's expensive because it's an impressive sculpt. Because of that it might not be for everyone. That's why they put its own expansion and not risk turning people away from it if they would have bundled it with act II.

Also don´t forget the new 7 terrain tiles, as said in the KS comments:
"Vastaryous will have a special map showing its huge lair on one side and the lava caves dungeon on the other side. The quests will also use several forest tites from the ACT I"

I can reveal a little secret...
in the 90 cards there are also a more powerful version of the Orcs (Warriors Shamans) to represent the clan who lives in the dark queen island devil
In addition you will find new hero powers, new traps and new treasures!

Does anyone know if the dragon expansion will be ready alongside the retail version of the core game?

It will not. They've stated that it will only come out the following year after the core set so 2017. The advantage to getting in the KS is you get it at the same time as the core box.
