Yep, four of them. They are based on the Naga, Skeleton, Razorwing, and Hellhound.

Still base game mini's, right? I wonder when they'll create expansion based Avatars...

Only after they change their philosophy about expansions that require more than just the base game.

That's not true. There are some aspects of RtL that use the other expansions, they just list that expansion's icon next to it and state to exclude that card if that expansion hasn't been purchased (at least, I thought that was the case. I'm kinda tired atm and too lazy to actually go look )

So they could make Avatars that use expansion minis and just mark it as a WoD or ToI Avatar...

He should take a look at the Sorcerer King. One of his upgrades is the Phylactery.

I can't seem to find the answer elsewhere, but can the Avatars from SoB (heh...cute acronym, huh?) be easily used for RtL, or are the specific to the SoB?

No. They have numerous specifications that simply don't import

Keep locations would be easy enough to change, though require some thought for balancing, but their special abilities don't all translate and some of their 'unique' upgrades may be totally incompatible.

Captain Bones in particular has, for example, his final battle as a sea encounter IIRC...

The Master of the Hunt and The Mistress of Serpents should work in RtL, if you changed their Keep and their LT a bit. Bones and the Count would be kind of pointless since their abilities deal with ships.
