As the title says, is the conversion kit worth getting just to use my Runewars heroes in Descent: 2nd edition? I know that the Runewars minis are supposed to be the same as those from 1st edition.

Thanks!

It's worth it, you can just proxy the heroes and monsters if you don't own the real things.

Any hero/monster can act as a proxy for the conversion kit as long as they have the same (or similar) base size/shape. I'd say that it's worth it!

How do you know what base-size the monster should use?

I know it would never happen but I would buy a 1st ed mini set if FFG would put one out. I'm wierd and hate using proxies.

There's some threads that describe how big each monster is in terms of the number of squares they take up
