So I got MK last week. I played the introductory scenario a few time, still trying to get all the rules. Today I received LL and SoT (Krang on the way).

Should I mix or play vanilla for a while?
All in all how many sleeves do I need for the whole collection?
Which files should I print from Bgg? Lots of interesting stuff it seems.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Try playing 'Vanilla' first. To help you get into the game, watch Rick Royal's walktrought on Youtube, it helped me a lot to understand the game better.

You could play vanilla just fine.

I would add unique hero cards, skills, new advanced actions, new spells and new artifacts from Lost Legion. Hero cards add immediate sense of differentiation for the heroes. New AA's/spells/artifacts don't add a whole lot of complexity, though you certainly don't need their variety either.

I would add errata cards/enemies from Lost Legion. Not necessary fixes, but might as well do it now and not wait a month or two.

I'd skip new enemies from Lost Legion. Combat was toughest for me to learn and LL enemies add more variety (= more stuff to learn).

Now that you've played First Recon more than once I'd stick with Solo Conquest for a while. Once you have a good feel on that check out Volkaire scenarios or solo tweaks of base game scenarios.

I say mix away. LL and even Tezla just don't add that many new things. I started right off with LL and it was never a problem. A few more monster symbols, but that's about it.

No need to push it .Vanilla is sufficient for most people. It is super the way it is, but very complex. The more you add, the longer and harder it will be. Add LL after some time (I did after a few years). WAIT with SoT - it makes things a lot more puzzly.
