This can be played with a single copy, but you do need the Dark Warrior models.

Although the official rules for the Dark Company Advanced Quest says to reset the board each time the heroes move from one board to another, it simply does not take into account the option the heroes have of splitting up. Although the more experienced players won6do this for very long it's still nice to have the option.

Some rather hardcore Hero Quest fans will actually go to the length of buying 3 more copies of the board just to play this quest. I'm one that would prefer it that way, but then I'd need over 120 doors and a over 50 wall tiles.

Even if I did own 4 complete boards and all accessories I would still need 2 additional Treasure Chests, 4 more Tables, 2 more book cases, an extra Throne and between 54 and 66 additional doors!

I would also like to play the game with 4 boards, but I guess it will takes a lot of hours to do but it is the best experience I think.
The idea to reset each area every time you swap beetween the levels is really boring for me.
Anyway I suggest you to have a look at this Dark Company remake by Pancho: Redrawing the Dark Company
And also this one, an inventory of the required pieces: Dark Company - Complete Checklist

I know the Dark Warriors are just supposed to be regular Mercenary (Men at Arms) figures, but I couldn't resist buying a bunch of skeletal warriors (Reaper Miniatures) and painting them metallic black for this purpose. They have all the required weapons (except a bowman instead of a crossbowman) and look a lot more monstery. Each to their own...

Sarcasm: That’s heresy! Heresy I tell you! ;) /Sarcasm
That’s a great idea by the way! What do they look like? Inquiring hobbyists want to know! |_P I had been considering getting some of the WHFB empire soldiers... but ran across some inexpensive HeroQuest men at arms.

If you look up "Skeleton guardian" on reaper's page (they are sold in packs of 3), you'll find them in plastic. Some of them are out of stock so you may try Ebay instead.

Some quick pics... and yes I added the bases (uxcell plastic end caps). Being that they are regular Bones (not "Black" that uses the stiffer gray plastic) they were the most bendy figures I'd worked with. The usual boiling water treatment prior to drying and painting did the trick, but I still have to bend the big sword guy's weapon back into place, but no big deal.
