Just to add to the previous thread about Battlefoam making a Descent kit, I've been exchanging a couple of emails with Battlefoam and they have said that (in their words) After speaking with Romeo, the kit should be released by January 15th or sooner. The kit I have suggested to them is one that covers ALL 1st Edition miniatures as a precursor to all of us porting our minis over to 2nd Edition. Fingers crossed that this comes off!

It covers the cardboard tiles, not the CastleKits tiles, right?

I must admit that I only asked for a kit that could hold the miniatures. I don't know if they would be able to incorporate the tiles as well into the bag - I guess it all depends on how much space they all take up in the trays.

Here it is:

http://uk.battlefoam.com/descent-board-game-foam-tray-kit-fo...

I had hoped for a footprint that would fit the actual descent box (these are about 1 cm too wide to fit the base game box). And I had hoped for trays to accommodate the expansion figures.

The trays for the floor tiles, dice and tokens are also quite useless. I want foam to protect my painted minis, not the cardboard and dice. This is especially irksome as the trays are only sold as a set.

Too bad. I'd have loved to get some Battle-foam for my Descent game.

Yeah. Seriously, what a letdown.

I have sent an email through to them to ask about plans for trays for the expansion figures. So we may have to wait a little while for a response there.

As for fitting it into the original box - I would guess that it just simply isn't big enough. There's an awful lot of minis in the base game!
