Has anyone tried to create some rules for the creatures from the BL 2nd ed. reinforcement packs (eg: Razorwings)? Are the minis a lot bigger than those used on BL 1st ed?

I understand the minis are larger.

Conceptually adding new creatures wouldn't be too hard. Special ability would be key, but all the concepts are there.

The original dragon figures for BL1e were larger than the other creatures so even though the BL2e miniatures are on a larger scale you may still be fine using Razorwings as a substitute. You can just paint them according to the type of dragon you want to use (wood wyvern, ice drake, fire dragon) and download the original BL1e dragon cards from the web.

Do you just mean the Barrow Wyrm figure, or all figures from the bl2e undead army packs? The Barrow Wyrm looks awesome but is even bigger than the Great Dragon figure so may be too much for bl1e scale.
It's amazing to read the old forums for bl1e even a decade ago fans were creating undead army rules.

Ah, yes! I compiled data and suggestions from several sources here before crafting a skeleton army, with mummy specialists and vampire leaders! Used a bestial skeleton (giant) as a "creature" also!

Can you provide (or give a link to) your ruleset? Pictures would be brilliant too if available.
