To all those who know such things - are there any 1e edition monsters left that were not re-released for 2e? I can't think of any, but I might be missing something...

All the Conversion Kit monsters have now been re-released.

Now if this is the same as "Have all 1st Ed. monsters been re-released", I'm not sure but I suspect it is.

Either way, which ones are currently missing?

Somebody should doublecheck but I think these:

Aurim
Bogran the Shadow
Brother Glyr
Eliam
Hugo the Glorious
Kirga
Landrec the Wise
Laughin Buldar
Mad Carthos
Tatianna
Tobin Farslayer
Truthseer Kel
Varikas the Dead

Varikas the Dead

Your list comes to 13, here's my list.

Heroes remaining (total 12)

Varikas the Dead - Warrior - Descent 1st Edition
Eliam - Warrior - Altar of Despair expansion
Laughin Buldar - Warrior - Tomb of Ice expansion
Hugo the Glorious - Warrior - Dungeon Quest

Bogran the Shadow - Scout - Descent 1st Edition
Red Scorpion - Scout - Descent 1st Edition
Kirga - Scout - Altar of Despair expansion
Tobin Farslayer - Scout - Promo

Landrec the Wise - Mage - Descent 1st Edition
Mad Carthos - Mage - Descent 1st Edition

Brother Glyr - Healer - Well of Darkness expansion
Aurim - Healer - Altar of Despair expansion

-----

Tatianna and Seer Kel (not Truthseer Kel) were released with the Stewards of the Secret H&M Collection.

That's the correct list. 12 heroes from the first edition are MIA, with no announcement as to if they're coming, or when they do what format it will be. I'm hopeful they'll be out at some point, as the progression has been:

"Hey, a hero and monster pack, cool! I wonder if they'll do more of these?"
...
"Wow, 3 more packs announced! I wonder if they'll do all the heroes and monsters from the CK?"
...
"Wow, they've got like 7 packs now, but we're running out of monsters to go with the heroes... how will they handle that?"
...
"The last two monster packs will have a brand new monster group to balance out the pack numbers? COOL! That's all the monsters! But where are the last 12 heroes?"
...

Personally I think they might go with new monsters or they might just release hero packs that are much less expensive.

I doubt it would happen, but I'd be content with a single "Hero Pack" with all 12 missing heroes for the same price as the hero and monster packs.

My intuition would be a single mini packs, the app has been very successful and the lieutenant packs are mostly useless with it (maybe having a few is fine but little incentive to buy a lot).

I felt the same about the app and Lieutenant Packs. Even if I own all of them, I was kinda bummed that no threat/fortune system has been implemented.
So, I came up with my own solution that introduces those tokens and models the Plot cards mechanic. Now I'm playtesting it, and probably I will upload it on this site when I'll feel confident. Please let me know if any of you is interested in a preview for giving me suggestions, other points of view and critics. ^_^

I'd gladly have a look at what you came up with.

Thank you very much. Here's a link to the PDF Wicked Schemers v0.1.
Please tell me if you are able to correctly download it (I think it's the first occasion I share a file with OneDrive).
