Introduction: With Vast's theme being fantasy, you can find generic fantasy miniatures to bling up your game. Interestingly, I noticed that all the miniatures (not from Amazon) are a result of other KickStarted projects. If you wait until Halloween or Christmas, Reaper has its holiday events where you can get a free additional miniature with minimum purchase. If you're interested in painting, Reaper also has Learn to Paint Kits. (The first kit has a figure that can be used as a knight, and the second has a figure that looks like a gnome or halfling thief.)

Knight: Pretty much any generic fantasy hero figure with sword and armor will do. Here's a female Paladin.
Goblins: Sold in six packs, stick two of each miniature on a piece of cardboard or plasticard, and scribble the tribal mark on it.
Dragon: Use a token to indicate a sleeping dragon. Hatchlings are smaller, less expensive, and may fit on the board better.
Thief: Plenty of thieves to choose from. Here's one with a bow to make it more obviously different from the Knight.
Gems: Michael's and Arts and Crafts stores have inexpensive acrylic gems you can use as counters in other games as well. Link is to overpriced Amazon gems.
Treasure Chest: I've seen them in quantity in various miniature boardgame KS (eg. Massive Darkness, Dungeon Saga). Reaper doesn't have them in plastic, but I found these on Amazon for a good price. Chests can also be used in other dungeoncrawl games.
Rock Slide: Glue some sand, then pebbles onto pieces of plastic or whatever. Coat the rock slides with watered-down glue to keep the rock slide from falling apart. Link is to an excellent general basing tutorial.
Flame Wall: More Reaper miniatures!
Closed Vault: A little abstract, you can use plastic door miniatures, such as these from Dungeon Saga. Just lay them flat. The doors, of course, can be used in various dungeoncrawling games.
