Hi all,

I started playing Imperial assault with a friend recently and we're thinking about getting into Descent also.

I was just wondering if the core set contains all the miniatures required for that campaign or if some of the characters are actually just tokens? And then the miniatures are sold as separate units, like the Han Solo mini in Imperial Assault.

I've seen Lieutenant and monster packs for sale and wondered if these were token replacement models.

Thank you

All of the Overlord's leaders that associate with Lieutenant packs will be tokens (ie, the boss of each scenario). Otherwise the base would be more than 50% more expensive. Monsters are never tokens, but you get more with the expansions.

So is there a list of what sets, expansions, hero & monster sets and lieutenant packs all go together? I just started looking at this game myself so apologize if this has been asked before.

Buying the Lieutenant packs is definitely a decadent completionist move [of which I am guilty] as you are paying $10-15 for a mini that is only used D3 times per campaign. They give the overlord an option, but if you plan to play Road to Legend that may not be as relevant.

The following Lieutenants are tokens in the base game:

Baron Zachareth
Eliza Farrow
Alric Farrow
Merick Farrow
Belthir
Splig

If you want to get just one, Splig is largely considered the best value, as he shows up in the most scenarios in this campaign, and shows up in other campaigns as well.

No, no it would not. I can buy single packaged medium mini's from reaper mini's for $2-3 retail. That does not add up to $40 especially without the packaging.

There's a list of all the lieutenants on the Descent 2E wiki. The list also contains information on where they were introduced: Lieutenant

Not to be a dick, but 6x3=18+7 for up charge because they are ana and the minis are game specific. Must not be too far off.

That's still not $40. But yes $18 would be the high end for 6 game specific minis which are individually packaged. Hence sticking them in the core box would be cheaper.
