Skulls and rats count?

Postby Zeus » Monday December 26th, 2016 10:23am

Hey all,

Can anyone tell me exactly how many of the skulls and rats (that can be used as decoration on the furniture) are included in the base game (both regular and "advanced edition" or "new edition", the one that had the extra mercenaries in it - although both boxes probably just had the same amount)? Skulls were also part of the Return of the Witchmaster set, being included on the Undead frames, but I'm assuming the frames were the same, and there were twice as many Undead figures in the set as in the base set, so also twice as many skulls. Please do correct me if I'm wrong :-) .

I'm trying to determine which sets exactly I have complete, or what parts I would need to complete a certain base/expansion set.

Thanks, Zeus
Zeus

There are six skulls on an Undead sprue. The game system(s) should only come with six skulls.
I don't remember how many rats, but I believe it's either four or six.

That's right. RotWL came with double undead, including 12 skulls.

At 7:51 you can see there are 6 skulls on the white sprue and at 8:29 you can see there are 4 rats on the brown sprue.
Same goes for the european version.

Correct. Four Rats and Six Skulls in the Base, and 12 skulls in RotWL. I always wondered why there were any skulls at all in the RotWL and feel stupid now for failing to realize the sprue had them from the original mold.

simply because they recycled the sprues from the main game, so you get all these skulls in the Witch Lord pack (the same was done for Kellar's Keep).
I also confirm there are 4 rats (2 different types) and 6 skulls.
