In response to both of you guys: yes, theme wise Descent 2.0 already has that down. I've actually begun to create hero cards for the different LOTR characters using templates right for the game. You don't need to be a wiz to use a free software image editor like Gimp to do this yourself. I'll post images as soon as I get a chance.
In short, this can be a reality if you want to put a little time into it.
That would be epic. I have not played descent 2.o though.
I own war of the ring so could reuse those minis for bad guys. This might be a very cool project
