I'm jumping right into 2nd edition without ever having played 1st. My plan is to get the conversion kit and use plastic from my many other dungeon crawl board games. Anything I missed that would make this a bad idea?

Re: Is it worth just getting the conversion kit if you DON'T have 1st Edition?
The only thing you miss are miniatures that look like the cards. Using "proxy" minis will give you a very close experience. No mechanics are different (though make sure you get the right sized miniatures, thinking of the 1x2 Hell Hounds, or the 2x2 Giants, etc).

Concure,
I might actually get two conversion kits, as I think as D2e becomes more popular ppl who don't have the minis will still want the kit for all the extra heroes and monsters it adds. They will just end up using different minis.

Well, i dont own TOI expansion but my good friend have a 3D printer at his school and he is skilled in 3D modeling. So we will create different or inspired set of monsters and then put new images on cards so they will corespond with figures. Proxies will then become part of the game

*blink* Why not?!? Go pick it up, now! It's still at most retail shops, and its' the best of the three "vanilla" expansions.

I will also have access to a 3d printer later on but lack the skills. You should get your buddy to post the his model files here for the rest of us to use, if he would be so kind.

First of all, we must get to it

And everybody here know how dream projects works. First model will be done in one week, second in one month and third will be never finished. Rest three figures will be only on paper...

I hope we will at least do a first one
