There actually is a level 10 Solo named The Risen King, in Fortress of the Yuan'ti pg 16, but he's a controller and poison/snake themed, which doesn't fit the Leoric concept very well. Malachi's Butcher, from Dungeon Mag #163 pg 83, brings a different iconic Diablo undead boss to mind, so is also mostly un-helpful here, but he gave me an idea, so let's ...

You're actually pretty much all the way there. The Complexity/Size/Value system you mention would probably work pretty well, and making a mapping between a particular total value and the scrap is a good way to go about it. You ask if there is a way to forumlaically determine how much scrap you should give out, or how much scrap things should cost, and the ...
