Anyone know of any component upgrade kits for El Grande, besides just buying meeples instead of cubes.

I would really like to find a castle instead of the cube for the Grande.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

You know the Big Box has meeples, right? Big for Grande, small for caballeros.

You could sell your older edition and use the proceeds to buy a Big Box, that's kind of an "upgrade kit"

Or, are you saying you specifically don't like the meeples idea?

I kind of like my old edition, and don't care at all about the expansions. Meeples are okay, but I was looking at other options.

Maybe you can get a few of the First player castles from Lords of Waterdeep and paint them? I also know that MeepleSource has purple castle bits which could be painted.

The fortified cities from Warrior Knights might work:

That's about what I am looking for. The question is, how to get something similar without having to buy a whole game.

Any thoughts on upgrading the cubes that aren't meeples?

I'm wondering if your best bet might be resources for miniatures gaming. I don't think BGG is particularly strong on miniatures stuff, maybe there are sites dedicated to it that would be more helpful. But I'm betting you could find a miniatures gaming store that would sell that kind of thing piece-meal.

Yeah, I was really just poking around and seeing if anyone had done it already.
