It might be an interesting pledge pack for the original Mythic battles owners if you guys were to gather miniatures to replace the tokens.
From the pictures i've seen, there's quite a few miniatures that look exactly like the amazing artwork of Loic. I would guess that the basic troop would fit into the squares of MB.
The game is still amazing, and while the new one might kick arse in its own right, i would dare say that it'd be a factor of interest for owners of the previous version (at least, for me) to back it if the "crossover" would end up benefiting both games.
Just an idea...
