So I'm sure you've all seen the preview for the new Lieutenant Packs by now. I mean, it isn't exactly new news. I was looking through the article again today and for the first time the price of the packs really hit me. It sounds like each pack will be about $10-15. Now, before now, I didn't think much of it, until I thought about how much it would cost to buy all of the packs. Think about it: all 6 packs together will most likely come out to be anywhere between $60-90. In other words, if you were to buy all of them together, it would come out to being at least as much as a store-bought base game of Descent 2nd Edition. I don't know about you, but I think this is hugely overpriced, considering the amount of content you get. Seriously now, if you were to buy all 6 lieutenant packs, you would get 6 miniatures and a small pack of cards to go with each. Compare that to what you get from the base game: 39 plastic figures, along with about 9 different decks of varying sizes, not to mention all the tokens, dice, and the epic amount of map pieces you get. And to buy all of the L-packs might actually cost up to $30 more? Honestly, sounds a bit like a ripoff if you ask me.
EDIT: fixed some typos
