Hi all,
I am not a lego expert or fan (or hater!) but I want to expand the Heroica series with more monsters/bad guys. Can anyone suggest specific figs I could hunt down to buy? Was there ever a fantasy minifigure set for example? I noticed things like Viking, Gladiator and such but more interested in monsters.

Thanks in advance.

A word to the wise: "microfig" is the term you're after. "Minifig" refers to the larger versions with detachable heads, movable arms & legs etc...

You could always buy other of the LEGO Games series featuring these microfigs - e.g. Minotaurus, Ramses Pyramid, but that's a rather pricey method if all you're after is more dudes.

You might be better served going to Bricklink, and searching for "microfig":

The scorpion is usually the first to be added to an expanded monster list.

My added monsters:

Scorpion (Strength 1)
Skeleton Warrior (Strength 2)
Skeleton General (Strength 3)
Mummy (Strength 2)
Mummy Pharaoh (Strength 3)
Minotaur (Strength 4; "boss")
Magma Monster (Strength 5; "boss")
Gorgon (Strength 4; "boss")

The scorpion appears in a few sets (there was a Lego Egypt series a while back, I think); I got my two from a cheap Ninjago kit and a spare 'Ramses Pyramid' game, though I'd like more if I could find them. The skeletons come from the 'Ninjago' boardgame, which I bought an extra one of just to get those cool microfigs for Heroica. Ditto for the Mummy and Pharaoh microfigs, which again come from 'Ramses Pyramid'. Both "bosses" are brick-built; my Gorgon is custom-made (I can share a picture/lxf if anyone wants), while the Minotaur is based on the one from the 'Minotaurus' boardgame and the Magma Monster (which towers over Heroes!) is from the 'Magma Monster' boardgame. All "bosses" use their own health bars, like the Giant Vampire Bat in the new Ilrion set.

I'd love to have some Giant Rats (Strength 1?) to use, but I don't own any (and I think they're rather uncommon, only in Harry Potter sets?).

I wondered if Lego frogs would make a threatening monster (Slime/Gel/Jelly monster substitute)?
