Last night we played a test game in an attempt to translate the preview copy of Monolith's Conan board game rules into miniatures play. I didn't really modify anything other than a simple movement conversion to account for the lack of zones on a miniatures playing field.
It went really well. I upped the number of Heroes from 4 to 6 which required to increase a few factors for the Overlord as well. Mainly the amount of Stamina in play and the recovery rates. In hindsight I think I would increase the number of cards the Overlord can activate on his turn from two to three. It was a pretty one sided affair with six heroes on the table.
For the game I used the Rescue scenario put forward by Monolith. The Heroes were tasked with rescuing a Warlord's daughter from the hands of the brutish picts and their evil leader Zogar Sag.
The game went well and I hope to do a little tweaking and make another attempt in a few weeks.
