Neoscream's Life, the 22nd to the 28th of November

Last week was mainly planning and thing getting cancelled but what will this week be like?

On Monday I checked out SuzySmartz's blog and found there has been a bit of chaos amounge the Smartz. Helen and Junita have left. They are still on MFC, but with new accounts with the name Roxx instead of Smartz. Are they still non nudes I do not know (Need to read their blog). The only ones that are still around are Suzy herself, the fantastic Blaire, Zoey, Chloe and Jade. However there has been on sign of Jade for a mouth and Julie is still around on MFC even tho Suzy never listed her on the list of Smartz girls, oh and what has happened to Blaire's friend LotusBabe? Did Blaire forget to tell Suzy this she recruited a new Smartz. While anyway, Suzy is also on Facebook too now. I only worked from 10AM to 12PM. As I missed jugded the amount of card I needed, I decided to popped into Hobbycraft to get two more sheets before going home. While there I saw a cute little sewing machine so I took a picture of it with my mobile phone and e-mailed it to Blaire. Her reply was: "Sooooo cute!" When I got hone I started working on the tower again. I manage to finish off the first level completely and only had the pillers to finish off for the second by time I had to finish for the day.

Mini Sewing Machine
On Tuesday I worked 10AM to 3:15PM. When I got home I got back to building the Tower. However due to a phone call from Richard I did not get much done. He was phoning about using Visual Basic to do the DC Tally on the database for MS War. He showed me examples on Excel which he e-mailed me. After talk for a while I managed to finish off the seacond floor and started on the third floor. Oddly I only just used up the card I brought last week. When I checked Anime-Media for new new episodes I found that they now have a manga section what they were heaviely up dating. So my spreadsheet for watching, listening and reading was hit with the return of several manga series that were dumped due to OneManga removing there manga. As you might have noiced I have been doing as lot of reading this week because of it.

Blaire on Wednesday
Early on Wednesday morning Blaire came online. She was feeling down as a friend of hers was moving quite a distance away and she needed cheering up. She also reviled something about her self, she had been hurt by so meanly ex-boyfriends she is scard to let any guy get personally close to her. I felt read sorry for her. When she went off line I went back to bed feeling down. I worked from 11AM to 5PM. Sadly I did not get around doing any building of the tower today.

On Thursday I worked from 10AM to 12PM. As my mum forgot to get the mined meat from out of the freezer, I decided to pop into Sansburys before going home to get some freash ones and so diet coke as I was running low. I also e-mail Blaire wishing here a happy Thanks Giving as it was Thanks Giving in America. When I got home I started building the tower again managed to just finish the third floor before I needed to stop and pack up. Sadly I ran out of Pritt Stick for gluing the grids on so If I had the time to do the ground floor I would not be able to do it. As to might have read already I was cream at Heroclix. All three of my teams got torn apart by Darren H with out taking down a single figure of his. Well I did get back home about 9:30PM, about an hour to two hours earlier then normal.

The Tower by the end of Sunday
Not much happened on Friday. I worked from 10AM to 5:30PM. I sadly did not get  the time to do any building done on the Tower and if I had the time I would have been stuck as I was still out of Pritt Stick.

At coffee on Saturday there was an odd surprise, Simon and Lucy turned up for coffe with Lucy's daurter Abby. I had been meaning to phone Simon phone to see how he was. Richard and Darren also turned up too. I worked from 12AM to 7PM. Again I did not get the time to do any work done on the tower.

Blaire on Sunday
Lastly, early on Sunday morning Blaire was online. She was getting ready to go to a warehouse party a mate of her's was having. However she must of turned up last as she was online until about 11:30PM her time. After she left I worked on this post and updated my Amazon wish list. Then I needed the ground floor to the tower. Now that the main part of the tower done, I can move on to things like ladders and the center piece. I then add more Character Cards for tomorrow MS Wars post. Before heading to bed I posted the new "Watch, Listen and Read" post.

Well that is another week over and done with. Here is a list of the planned posts coming this week:

2nd of December – Rules: Extras part 1 (MS Wars blog only)
3rd of December – Heroclix post
5th of December – MS Wars Story or back groups and Watch, Listen and Read (maybe if not the next day)
7th of December – Neoscream's Life
No Planned Date - Labels A to Z

Until next time, enjoy.

Necromunda CALL OUT

Now if you have read my last Neoscream's Life post, MS Wars Update post or Heroclix post, you will know that I am planning on ruling a Necromunda campaign. I am planning on starting it at the beginning of the new year. As the number of players I know are quite low, I am making a call out for any Necromunda players or anyone who wants to learn the game in the Milton Keynes area of the UK or can get then with ease.

Here is some info:

  • I will be using the revised version of the rules.

  • Only the gangs from the rules book are allowed for you first team unless I give you permission.

  • You cannot use a second team until after your first team has done three to five games. Still deciding on which.

  • You can use any figure as long as they fit in the scale and the team has a theme.

  • There will be relaxed rules on "What you see is what you have". A basic weapon looking weapon can be treated as any basic weapon, a random melee weapon can be treated as any melee weapon and so on.

  • Also pistols, daggers and grenades do not need to be on the model, but more than one of each is pushing it.

If anyone is interested in joining please e-mail me at ninjaprime@hotmail.co.uk and I will get in touch. It would be nice if you have terrain that can be used in Necromunda but it is not a necessary.

Heroclix 25th of November, White Wash

As the bothers are not with us this week the Campaign is on hold, however me and Darren with still be playing Heroclix game. This week we did three 500 points game, Modern Age, three actions only and nothing for our current build pools from the campaign.

The first Team I built was a Symbiotes. Finally I can use a Symiotes. The only Symbiotes I did not use were Anti-Venom and the Symbiote Spider-Man LE from Sinister as I forgot about Anti-Vemon when making the team and the LE is a Golden Age only due to the age of the set. As I only have three generic Symbiotes I have to borrow one off Darren.

Carnage (Web of Spider-Man) 153
Toxin (Web of Spider-Man) 57
Venom (Web of Spider-Man) 87
Symbiote (Web of Spider-Man) 49
Symbiote (Web of Spider-Man) 49
Symbiote (Web of Spider-Man) 49
Symbiote (Web of Spider-Man) 49
=493 point and three re-rolls.

The second team was a nightmare as with the lack of Bold and the Brave figures and the lack of Hammer of Thor figures I have does damage Modarn Age team builds with the other restictions. So unless I borrow a lot of figures off Darren. I manage to pull of a Warrior based around Green Scar. However I did need the borrow Asgardian Warrior. Sadly there is a little bit of a points gap.

Green Scar (Mutations and Monster) 230
Miek (Mutations and Monster) 60
Silver Savage (Mutations and Monster) 96
Daken (Web of Spider-Man) 63
Asgardian Warrior (Hammer of Thor) 37
=486 points and two re-rolls.

The third team again was hard. I wait a team that uses Iron Patriot. But the chooses were slim with a 500 point game theamed team. I realist as I write this I should of gone for a non theamed Dark Avengers team and said F it to the re-rolls. I ended up building a ruler team with him, Doom and Namor. Sadly as there is only three guys in this team I gain no theam team bonuses.

Iron Patriot (Web of Spider-Man) 150
Victor Von Doom (Secret Invasion) 200
Namor (Secret Invasion) 150
=500 points and no re-rolls.

Darren's teams were:

Sinestro Corps
Scarecrow (Blackest Night) 85
Sinestro (Crisis) 146
Manhunter (Arkham Asylum) 64
Arkillo (Arkham Asylum) 126
Lyssa Drak (Arkham Asylum) 72
=493 points and 2 re-rolls.

Animals
Puma (Web of Spider-Man) 56
Noh-Varr (Web of Spider-Man) 141
Beast (Mutations and Monster) 73
Fenris Wolf (Hammer of Thor) 140
Rocket Raccoon (Hammer of Thor) 65
=475 points and 2 re-rolls.

Amazons
Wonder Woman (Blackest Night) 215
Wonder Woman (Justice League) 94
Amazon (Arkham Asylum) 50
Amazon (Arkham Asylum) 50
Phillipus (Arkham Asylum) 84
=493 points and 2 re-rolls.

The first game was my Symbiotes verse his Sinestro Corps. He ripped my team apart. Next was my Rulers verse his Animal. He ripped my team apart again. The last game was my Warriors verse his Amazons and guess what? His team ripped my team apart again. Over all I did terablely, I did not even OK a single figure of his.

Next week is 600 points, 4 actions and 3 teams. Each team must be based on a colour. I see Green being one of them.

Wizkidz reviled five new figures this week for the DC 75th Anniversary set, four of them are Beast Boy and the other in the orange lantern Larfleeze. This version of Beast Boy has a Morph ability to lets him change into a different version of himself in the set. There is his human form, bear form, cheetah form and t-rex form. This is a fantastic way of doing a changeling and could work on Transformers if they ever do them. This is making me rethink how I shouyld do Oolong from Dragon Ball. Larfleeze is an inserting figure and I would like to see it in play to see if it is worth the 212 point. Also the Thanks Giving PnP casrds are quite nice. Also a bit of non Wizkids news, I am working a Tower for Necromunda which will be usable as a semi 3D map by gridding it like a Heroclix maps.

The Tower Tuesday
In this week’s DreamClix I will be doing Yamcha and Pu’ar Duo figure from Dragon Ball, Ebisu and his Shadow Clone pog from Naruto, Momochi Zabuza and his Water Clone pog from Naruto, Cleaning Drone pog from the Iron Man Anime, Chika Tanaka from the Iron Man anime, Captain Nagato Sakurai aka Ramon Zero from the Iron Man anime, Virgo from the Iron Man anime and the dial for Acidwire from Bleach. However I like to note that episode 6 and 7 shows that the Zodica Warriors are genaric or at least some of them are.

First off is the Yamcha and Pu’ar duo figure from Dragon Ball. Yamcha is a former desert bandit. He was once an enemy of Goku, but eventually reformed and became a lifelong friend and ally. He was the first of the eventual Z Fighters to meet and team up with Goku. He was once the boyfriend of Bulma, and finds a constant companion in Puar. He has the distinction of being the one Z-Fighter that has known Goku the longest, even longer than Krillin. Puar is a shape-shifting animal that follows Yamcha as a lifelong best friend. They should have the powers Stealth, Charge, Flurry, Blades, Close Combat Relaxes, Shape Change and Close Combat Expert. They should have seven clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 9, Defence 17, Damage 2 and Range 0. They should have the Dragon Ball TA and the keywords Warrior, Martial Artist and Dragon Ball Gang.

Next is Ebisu from Naruto. Ebisu is a Konoha Tokubetsu Jōnin who specializes in the private training of elite ninja, as stated by Kakashi Hatake. He should have the powers Stealth, Charge, a special called "Shadow Clone Justsu", Super-Senses and Outwit.
Shadow Clone Justsu: Ebisu gains a +1 to his movement for every friendly character with Ebisu in their name it is within four squares from him.
He should have five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 8, Defence 16, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. He should have the Naruto TA and the keywords Konohagakure and Ninja.
There should also be Ebisu Shadow Clone pogs. These should have the powers Leap Climb and the "Shadow Clone Justsu" special that Ebisu his. They should starting states of Movement 8, Attack 7, Defence 15, Damage 1 and Range 4 with one target.

Next is Momochi Zabuza from Naruto. Zabuza is the first antagonist Team 7 faces, providing the first glimpse of more highly skilled ninja. He also acts as one of the first villains emotionally moved by Naruto's pleas. And though he died early on, his "second coming" in Suigetsu continues his influence within the series. He should have Indomitable, a special called Hidden Fog Justsu, Blades, Toughness and Water Justsu.
Hidden Fog Justsu: Zabuza can use Stealth, Charge and Smoke Cloud. He can use Smoke Cloud as a Free Action and normally.
Water Justsu: If Zabuza is in water terrain he can use Incapacitate and Pulse Wave. When he uses Pulse Wave he has a range of 10. Also If Zabuza is in water terrain, all pogs called “Zabuza Water Clone” within 8 squares may replace their states with his and gain Willpower.
He should have eight clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 10, Defence 18, Damage 3 and Range 4 with one target. He should have the Naruto TA and the keywords Kirigakure, Gatō, Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist and Ninja.
There should also be Zabuza Water Clone pogs. These should have Swim, Blades and Toughness. They should starting states of Movement 8, Attack 8, Defence 16, Damage 2 and Range 0.

Cleaning Drone pog from the Iron Man anime. As there was not any real Zodiac warriors is episode 6 that could be made I decided to do the Bazook Stark Cleaning Drone, as pogs. They should have Charge, Toughness and Battle Furry. They should starting states of Movement 6, Attack 7, Defence 14, Damage 1 and Range 0.

Chika Tanaka from the Iron Man anime. As episode 7 had no new Zodiac warriors I decided to get round to do Chika. Chika is the head scientist in Stark Industries's Japanese Brach. She is also the mean love intrest in the show, maybe because Pepper is still in America running things while Tony is in Japan. She should have a special called "Head Scientist" and a click of Prob.
Head Scientist: Chika can use Preplex. She can use it twice if the target is "Iron Man" or "Tony Stark".
She should have four clicks of health with starting states of Movement 6, Attack 7, Defence 16, Damage 1 and Range 0. She should have no TA and the keyword Scientist.

Captain Nagato Sakurai aka Ramon Zero from the Iron Man anime. Nagato works for the Japainess Mistory of the Defence and is their act pilot. He was give to Ramon Zero armour by to defende Japain and to test it. He should have Flight, Charge, Blades, Invulnerability, Toughness and Range Combat Expert. He should have eight clicks of health with starting states of Movement 12, Attack 10, Defence 18, Damage 3 and Range 8 with one target. He should have the no TA and the keywords Soldier and Armour.

Lastly we have Virgo from the Iron Man anime. Virgo is the Zodiac warrior from episode 8. She or it is a flotting female head that is designed to be the ultimate attack and defence, but it can not use both at the same time. It should have Flight, Indomitable, Shape Shotter, a special called "Ultimate attack/ultimate defence", Pulse Wave and Toughness.
Ultimate attack/ultimate defence: At the begining of you turn pick one of the two forms listed below. Virgo will gain these abilities and states until you pick the other form.
Attack Form - Virgo can use Psychic Blast and its damage value becomes 5.
Defence Form - Virgo can use Impervious and its defence value becomes 20.
It should have five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 10, Defence 16, Damage 0 and Range 8 with one target. It should have the Hydra TA and the keywords of Zodiac, Armour and Robot.

And lastly we have the dial for Acidwire from Bleach.


I am planning on doing for next week’s DreamClix Soichiro Yagami from Death Note, Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball, Ox King from Dragon Ball and the dial for Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto. Until next time, enjoy.

Update 26th of November, The giant's tower

This is not a mecha from the game, but
it does give some ideas for walking
platforms
Well it has been just over two weeks now since the last update post, so it is time for another update on what has been happening with the game.

Sadly there is not to really report about. Apart from making the posts I have not being much. The help Richard gave my last Sunday was to reshow me how to make filter forms in Access. He had a little bit of trouble as he is use to MS Access 2003 while I have MS Access 2007. He also said he will like into making the DC tilly simpler then doing a if statement for in number that it couple possibility be. He then phoned and e-mailed me with some ideas on using Visual Basic.

Also I am plan on running a Necromunda campaign in the New Year. The main reason I am doing this is to re see the Necromunda campaign system in action for MS War as I want to use a semiler system in it. As must of my Necromunda terrain is ever missing, damage or baried ramdom boxes, I decided to build some. Well in fact one main bit. A tower. I plan to make it useable to both Heroclix and MS Wars. OK, there will be a problem with vehciles with MS Wars but I am thinking of ways around that. Currently just finished three floors and will be doing next the ground which is needed for Heroclix and then I will be doing ramps, ladder and maybe walls for it. Oh the overall plan for the tower is, Stage One: to build it up to three floors high, with a ground floor, Stage Two add a fourth floor, Stage Three add two more fours with another ground floor so I can make in two small towers or one large tower and then Stage Four make variable floors to swap around half damaged floors. Also there will be a centre piece that which I need to design and build.

The Tower at the end of Monday
What are my plans for now? Finish off Stage One of the tower, rechecking the rules that I have not posted yet and add new pilot skills, try to get back into model making and design and build the centre piece.

Lastly here is a list of up and coming MS Wars post. Please note these date are not set in stone and may change.
29/11: Units - Amago, Range Type
2/12: Rules - Extras part 1
5/12: Background or Story
8/12: Units - Human Heavy Weapon Team
11/12: New Update post

Until next time, enjoy.

Neoscream's Life, the 15th to the 21st of November

Machine Wars Starscream
Last week was fashion with Blaire but what will this week be like?

As you might know from last week's "Neoscream's Life" post at 4AM Monday morning Blaire came back on-line. She was chilling be for having a bath and going to bed. In face she had her bath in a group show. However she was wearing a bikini so that her private parts were covered. She was only on-line for about two hour. I then went back to bed for an hour. I finished off writing last week's "Neoscream's Life" post and started on writing the Heroclix post. I worked from 10AM to 1PM with a lunch break. Other than that not much happened.

On Tuesday morning Blaire on-line at 4AM again. She was cooling again but with her puppy Buddy. Luckily dog. LOL. Blaire had finished the panties but she was not modelling them. She was on camera for about to hours and then we chat on PMs as I posted on the "Neoscream's life". She sadly had not gotten around checking my blog recently, how recently I do not know. She then went to bed and I did some work on my blog. As you my notice on the right hand side there are several changes. First of is that I added a new blog to the following list, Anime UK News.
Blaire on Monday in the bath
Second I have added a links section under the banners for stuff that does not going the blogs I follow section or I have a banner for. Third I added a section that shows the top 5 most viewed posts on the blog in the last 30 days. The post "Cosplay Deviants: Noel - Kokiri Girl" is the all time top post with over 20,000 views, about 5,000 more than the next most viewed post. And last I have dumped the Twitter section. I worked from 10AM to 1PM. When I got home I finished off what I can do at the moment for the Heroclix blog as the subtitled version of episodes 6 and 7 of the Iron Man anime are not up yet and I cannot write up what has not happened yet. Blaire briefly can online during 10PM for about half an hour. She said she would come back later. So I went to bed.


When I got up on Wednesday morning there had been no signs of Blaire coming online but she did make a Twitter post saying that she had an unexpected visit from a friend. It was the end of her contest. Last I heard she had only four entries. I worked 10AM to 3:30PM with break. Hippy, more than just three hours. Well working, I decided to that I well try to run a Necromunda campaign. However I do not have the terrain. So I contacted Darren H via text message during my lunch break to see if he had any, but sadly he did not. Then a idea came to me. A 2' by 2' tower that can grow in height. The pillars would be easily and and super cheep to do, as at work we have a ton of small plastic cup which we do not use which are ideal and free. After work I popped in to Hobbycraft to look at prices of thick card board to make the floors of the tower. It was £4.49 for an A1 size sheet. I was thinking I would be needing a minimum of four boards for the project which would mean it would cost me £18 before tools and other bit. I decided to do a little more thinking before buying the card. When I got home and checked Anime Media, I spotted that they had the finally posted the subtitled version of the latest two episodes of the Iron Man anime. However the first half of episode 6 was missing and I was not going to watch 7 until I have seen 6.

Blaire on Tuesday morning with Buddy
When I woke up on Thursday morning at 8AM I found Blaire was online on MFC, but not on camera. She had got back home from helping a friend in need. She needed I bit of help which I tried my best to give. We chatted for an hour before she went to bed. I worked from 11PM to 4AM. I did some more planning for the tower. I decided to make it usable for MS Wars and as a 3D map for Heroclix. So I need to grid the Tower's floors to be usable for Heroclix. Also I thought of good ways to make it that will not use up so many cards and to make it more collapsible. However for Necromunda I need some kind of structure to help bloke line of sight. While on my way to Stony for Heroclix I received a phone call from Darren S. Sadly at the very last minute the brother said they can not come. Also they will most likely not be turning up until after the Christmas holidays, which mean the campaign is on hold. However me and Darren S will still be playing Heroclix, just not this week. When I got back home me and my mum decided to go out and watch the new Harry Potter movie on Friday evening as dad was out for the night. I ordered the tickets. I then edited and posted the Heroclix post before going to bed.

Blaire on Friday
On Friday morning Blaire came online about 7:50AM. She had been busy hanging and shopping with her 13 year old brother and helping her grand-mother making holiday cards for prison inmates so they can send them to their loved ones. Blaire was hoping the the winner of her contest, who was CuddaHunter, would be online. Sadly for her he was not, so she showed off her ability to speck Spanish and French. Sadly I could not hear much of what she should as my Internet was actioning slow again, however I was sure she said "I'll be on all day tomorrow". I worked from 10AM to 4:45PM. After work I went to Hobbycraft to get two sheets of think grey A1 card and a metal ruler. Afterwards I got picked up by my mum and we headed to the shopping centre to had quick look around as we have an hour until we wanted to be at the cinema. Mum picked up a new jumper and pursh but other than that we did not spend any money. There were several interesting trailers. First was Tron Legend. I have been wanting to see this one and it looks great. Next was Yogi Bear. WTF! They have made a live action Yogi Bear movie. Now I have seen everything. Then it was the new Narnia, it was OK but will wait until it is out on DVD. Then it was the new Meet the Parents movie. Pass. And lastly it was Paul. Looks like a great laugh. The main film, the new Harry Potter, is great film if you have been watching the others. After the film we went to Cafe Rogue for dinner as the place did stake which my mum had been wanting. It was 10PM. We sat down and ordered our food and while having a drink we were told that the head chief had closed the kitchen. It would take at lest half an hour to cook our food. As it would take too long and it would course hassle my mum decided to not bother. They noted my mum's name down and contact details so if we come back another time they will give us up £30 off the bill, they also did not charge for our drinks. So we then went to Wagamama for my chose, ramen. When we got home I watch a bit of WWE and then headed to bed.

OK, I would like to tell you a tail, a tail of my first ramen. Back when when I was briefly wearing glass, I was at the Shopping Centre MK as I needed to see an optician. Sadly at the appointment I found I needed to get new glasses as my eye sight changed again. In fact it improved from 0.5 to 0.4. Lucky I only needed to wait for a couple of hours for them to get the new ones to be ready. I decided to get some lunch. I decided to try a new restaurant I always some to walk past. I looked at the menu and notice that they had Ramen, the food Naruto is always eating. I thought I give it a try and found I really liked it.

Blaire on Tuesday Evening
On Saturday morning Anime Media finally fixed the like to episode 6 of the Iron Man anime so I was able to finally see episodes 6 and 7. While watching episode 7 I got a message from Darren H saying he could not make it to coffee he was sick and the just after watching the Episode Richard phone up cancelling coffee as he would not be coming too as he had a hang over. However we did make planned to meet up with Jake to watch a movie or two. So with the extra time I had I found and watched the trailer to the Green Lantern film that is out summer next year and I also started working on the Tower. I started work at 12PM and was meant to finish at 3AM, but it was change to 8PM as by the look of it someone wanted to leave early. I contacted Richard about the change I he decided that it would be best that we change the plan to Sunday. Other than that not much happened.

Blaire on Sunday getting readily to go out 
Lastly on Sunday, Blaire was online at 3AM. She was getting ready to meet her new male model and helper for the men’s bed wear/underwear line, CuddaHunter. I learnt something new about her too, she use to work for Starbucks. She only stayed on for half an hour so I went back to bed. When I got up, I got on working on the Tower, however I realised a sheet of card will only do one floor if you include a base and top for the pillars, which I now know I will need eight for games with metal figure like Necromunda and MS Wars. While working on the Tower, I phoned Richard to find out the plan for today. As Jake was busy, plan just planned to meet up at mine as he had to go off at 7PM. As he was doing some stuff at the moment he said he will be over at about 5PM. So I did a bit more work on the Tower and then went to have a bath. I went on to Anime Media to check what was added since I last checked and found that the subtitled version of episode 8 of the Iron Man anime was up so I watch that while having a bath. When Richard came we talked about the Necromunda campaign and the Tower, I showed him the Green Lenten trailer and he help with the MS Wars database too. After he left I watched and listened to some stuff, posted the new Watch, Listen and Read post and then I went to bed.

The Tower so far on Sunday
Well that is another week over and done with. Here is a list of the planned posts coming this week:

26th of November – Heroclix post and MS Wars Update post (both blogs)

Until next time, enjoy.

HeroClix Special 4, very last minute changes

Well I had everything readily, typed up and was half way to Heroclix when I received a phone call from Darren. Duo to last moment problems with the brothers Adrian and Michael, there will not be any Heroclix. Beep Beep Beep. Also the brothers might not be able to come that often until the New Year. So the campaign will be a heavy delay however hopeful my and Darren while be able to do some one off games, may be test the 3D map I am planning to make. More details of this map will come in the next “Neoscream’s Life” post. As I am going to be busy on Friday as I will be watching the new Harry Potter film with my mum as she is a big fan of the films, I will not have the time to do any extra DreamClix stuff for this week’s post sadly.

First of the News, sadly the only bit of news this week is that Wizkidz have reviled one more new figure this week for the DC 75th Anniversary set. It was Jonny Quick form the All-Star Squadron. I am not a fan of the figure as it has an activation click. For those who do not know what I mean by activation click, an activation click is a starting click where the character does not have their standard powers. This is normally the character in their human/unpowered state, like the Hulk in his Burse Banner state. You have to push the character to activate them.

In this week’s DreamClix I will be doing the Third Hokage from Naruto, Shrieker from Bleach, Buggy the Clown from One Piece and a dial for Kira the LE version of Light Yagami from Death Note. As there is a problem with the video for the first half of the subbed version of episode 6 of the Iron Man anime, I will not be doing any characters this week. However I will be doing a special clix design at the end of this post.

First off is Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage from Naruto. Hiruzen Sarutobi, has been the longest-ruling Hokage, having served two separate terms. He is a peace-loving leader, preferring nonviolent discussions to his advisers' more militaristic suggestions. Throughout the series, he acts as a source of wisdom to younger generations and is one of the few characters to treat Naruto Uzumaki as a person and not just the container of the nine-tailed demon fox. In his youth Hiruzen was known as "The Professor", as he purportedly knew every jutsu in Konohagakure. He was also the teacher of Jiraiya, Orochimaru, and Tsunade. Orochimaru had always been his favourite student, and Hiruzen could never bring himself to recognize Orochimaru's evil qualities. When Orochimaru invades Konoha years later, Hiruzen fights him to repent for never prosecuting Orochimaru as he should have. When he is unable to win, he robs Orochimaru of his ability to use jutsu, bringing an end to the invasion and thus allowing Hiruzen to die happily. Now the plan for the Third's dial is a good starting click then his states will drop like a break but his last click should be nasty. He should have a trait called "Hokage", Charge, Stealth, a special called “Earth Release Earth Flow River”, Smoke Cloud, a special called "Dead Demon Consuming Seal", a special called "Will of Fire", Super Senses, Range Combat Expert and Outwit.
Hokage: The Third Hokage can use Leadership and Perplex. If he uses Perplex someone with the Konohagakure keyword, it will modify their states by 2 instead of 1.
Earth Release Earth Flow River: The Third Hokage can use Smoke Could. Hindering terrain placed by the Third Hokage is only classed is as water terrain instead of hindering terrain.
Dead Demon Consuming Seal: The Third Hokage can use Blade. If he uses blades, the damage cannot be reduced. Afterward, the Third Hokage will take one click of unavoidable damage.
Will of Power: The Third Hokage can use Willpower, Super Senses and Toughness.
He should have six clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 2 and Range 6 with three targets. He should have the Naruto TA and the keywords Konohagakure, Ruler and Ninja.

Next is the Hollow Shrieker from Bleach. Shrieker is a Hollow with high intelligence. Like many other Hollows, he is driven to kill; however, he also reveals that he was a murderer before he died. He is extremely manipulative, as he tells Yūichi Shibata that he would revive his mother if he can run away from him for 3 months, just for the pleasure of killing anyone who gets involved with him. He also uses underhanded tactics for battle, as he threatens to blow up Yūichi's cage to prevent Chad from giving chase while he hunts down Rukia. He is also the only Hollow who has shown to have memories of his human life before his death. He also enjoys eating Soul Reapers. He should have Stealth, Leap Climb, a special called "Artillery", Toughness and Outwit.
Artillery: Once per turn as a free action, the Shrieker can put two Leech tokens (SPECIAL tokens) in an unoccupied adjacent square if there are fewer than six Leech tokens on the map and it is within ten squares of Shrieker. At the beginning of your turn, if an opposing character is in the same square as, or adjacent to, a Leech token, you can deal 1 damage to each opposing character in the same square as, or adjacent to, that Leech token and then remove that token from the game. Remove all Leech tokens from the map if Shrieker is OKed.
He should have six clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 9, Defence 17, Damage 3 and Range 6 with one target. He should have no TA and the keywords Hollow.

Lastly is the pirate captain Buggy the Clown from One Piece. Captain Buggy, nicknamed Buggy "the Clown", is the ruthless captain of the circus-themed Buggy Pirates, who is known for his love of cannons. He is particularly sensitive when it comes to his big, red, round nose and when insulted, will even resort to killing his own men. Nevertheless, he is beloved by his crew. Years before the series' present, while a member of the "Roger Pirates", he brought a Devil Fruit and a treasure map into his possession. He intended to sell the fruit and to search for the treasure, but Shanks (his former friend) accidentally caused Buggy to swallow the fruit and drop the map into the sea. Buggy holds a grudge against Shanks ever since. The fruit he swallowed was a paramecia Devil Fruit called the Chop-Chop Fruit. Having eaten it, it allows him to separate his body into parts and to control these parts independently of each other as long as they remain in his proximity; and, as long as at least one of his feet is on the ground, he can levitate the other parts. This ability also makes him immune to cutting attacks; any such attack will only separate him into parts. Later in the series, he is captured and put into Impel Down, the undersea prison, and breaks out with the help of Luffy and the other prisoners. He also has a compact cannonball that it seems he shoots out of his shoe called the Muggy Ball. Buggy's current bounty is 15,000,000 Berries. He should have two traits “Devil Fruit Powers” and “Chop-Chop Fruit”, Charge, Plasticity, Blades, Energy Explosion, Mastermind, Range Combat Expert and a special called "Loyal Crew".
Devil Fruit Powers: If Buggy is in water terrain, he loses all his powers and any other traits, his movement value becomes halve, his range becomes 0 and he gains Earthbound power."
Chop-Chop Fruit: Buggy can use Super Senses and all damage from Blades is reduced to 0.
Loyal Crew: Friendly characters under with the Buggy Pirates keyword and within 8 squares can use Willpower if they can’t already.
He should have seven clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 9, Defence 18, Damage 2 and Range 6 with one target. He should have the One Piece TA and the keywords Pirates, Buggy Pirates, Roger Pirates and Devil Fruit.

Now we have the dial for Kira the LE version of Light Yagami from Death Note. With Kira I did some major changes to what I was originally planning like two new specials that give him multiple abilities.


I am planning on doing for next week’s DreamClix Yamcha and Pu’ar Duo figure from Dragon Ball, Ebisu from Naruto, Momochi Zabuza from Naruto Note and the dial for Acidwire from Bleach that if there is Heroclix next week. If it does not happen I will do, Soichiro Yagami from Death Note, Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball and a dial for the pre devil fruit, "Iron Mace" Alvida from One Piece. Until next time, enjoy.

Oh hang on, I am forgetting something, the bonus clix. This has been one I have been planning for a while but never got round to do it. Stan Lee. Now this should a purple ringed figure (non tournament legal) as this figure would be to Heroclix what Unglued and Unhinged is to Magic the Gathering. He should be something like a comic book day figure or a mail away. Now with his powers I would say he should have these:
Movement special - Stan Lee can use Enhancement and Perplex. When Stan Lee uses Perplex he modifies the value by 2 instead of 1.
Attack Special - Stan Lee can use Mind Control and Incapacitate. When Stan Lee uses Mind Control his Attack value becomes 10 and he does not take feedback damage from Mind Control.
Defence Special - Stan Lee can use Defend and Support. When Stan Lee uses Support his Attack value becomes 12.
Damage Special - Stan Lee can use Outwit and Probability Control. Stan Lee can Outwit TAs and Traits.
Trait - Stan Lee ignores all characters, abilities and terrain for line of sight.
He should have four clicks of health with starting states of Movement 6, Attack 7, Defence 18, Damage 0 and Range 15 with three targets. He should have both the Power Cosmic and Spider-Man and the keyword Comic Book Creator. Now that is it for this post.

Neoscream's Life, the 8th to the 14th of November

Last week was a slow time at work but what will this week be like?

On Monday morning before heading to work I posted the Movement rules for my MS Wars game on its blog. I was down to work 11AM to 8PM, but as we were dead I ended up leaving at 5PM. My hours for this week had me down for working every day apart from Sunday, which was normal for me just lately. I manage to re-find a useful torrent site where you can get a lot of Anime opening and closing tracks as well as sound tracks and character CDs. The site is Nipponsei. At about 8PM Blaire came on-line. She was sorting out the pictures she had cut out the other day for some kind of ideas board. She liked the bad ass girl look. This reminded me about as scene from Code Geass R2 when an imprisoned Kallen beat the crap out of Suzaku. So I searched YouTube to see if I could find the clip, but sadly Blaire had to leave before I finished finding it. She did say that she would be on-line tomorrow. After finding the video I booked marked it so that I could give her the link at a later date and as well as to keep it for my self.

Blaire on Monday
On Tuesday morning I quickly posted last week's Neoscream's Log post before going to work for a early start. I was down to work from 9AM to 4PM, but ended up finishing at 12PM and my schedule was change and now I have Wedesday and Friday on top of Sunday. So a massive hours cut. Doing the maths I am working thirteen hours this week. Well not much else happened. Blaire was never on-line.

Wednesday was a day off. When I cheched Twitter there was a tweet from Blaire saying that she was not going to be on-line on Tuesday as her car had broken down. However she did say that she would be on-line tomorrow morning, meaning this evening. Finally she is letting people know that she was not going to be on-line when she had stated when she said she was. I had a bath, I finally got around to take down the stuff that I moved up stairs when my parents decorated the living room and curry for cook dinner. Also thought out the day I worked on the MS Wars Update post and the Heroclix post. As I was about to go to bed Blaire came on-line. She was later than she on was planned as she was looking to see what was  on-line for about two hour. She was cutting patterns for panties and then she cut out the patterns in several materials to start making a pair. She said she will try to come on line later. I went to bed shortly afterwards.

Blaire on Wednesday
Blaire never come back on-line so when I awoke on Thursday morning, I posted the new Update post for my MS Wars game on both blogs and did more work on the Heroclix post before head to work. I worked from 12PM to 4PM. As I was finishing I was told I would be working now on Friday. When I got home I did a little bit of printing and cook dinner like normal before heading to Heroclix.

On Friday I had to get get up early as I was in work early again. The washing machine repairman was meant to come today but luckily my parents were off for that. I worked 10AM to 4PM. When I got home we had new washing machine. The repairman sadly they had to come back next week to finish the work was the new programming he had for the washing machine was not working. My parents argoy about that as it as it would mean we would have been without a washing machine for over two weeks. As well have had a lot of problems with the washing machine, the repairman decided to write the machine off and we got 50% off a new one as long as it was the same make. The new one is very silent. I finished off the Heroclix post and posted it up. Then I remembered the I was a deble set this week on Cosplay Deviants so I checked it out. This fortnight's new model was Ichigo and she was doing Meg from Burst Angel. As this was one of the shows I watch and the fact it was a good set I did a post on my blog about it and then headed to bed.

(WTF) A Confused Blaire on Saturday
On Saturday at coffee was Richard and Darren. Richard was very late as he was getting dinner ready for the slow cooker as had old University mates over. This meant he was not free tonight to do anything. Afterwards I headed to work where I worked from 12PM to 3PM. Watched so anime and listen to some of the music I downloaded. Then at about 9PM Blaire came on-line. She was trying to work out how to get this special sewing machine for seems to work. It was a laugh to watch from some of the confused faces she was pulling. About an hour after she came on camera, she popped off camera for what she said for a moment. SuzySmartz come on camera so I popped into her chat room to say hi as I have not seen her come on camera in a long time. Suzy was studying and was not talking much. After half an hour of waiting for Blaire to return I had went to bed knowing the sound of her returning would wake me up. Sadly she never returned.

Blaire with panties she is making on Sunday
Lastly on Sunday it was my day off like normal. I ended up watching a ton of One Piece and while having a bath I watched the last live action Death Note movie. Now I can mark off Death Note from my watch list. At about 8:45PM Blaire come on-line. The reason why she disappeared was she had just be reminded about her cousins birthday party that she had for gotten about. She was finishing off work out how to how to set the machine up to do what she wanted to do on it. She managed to get it working with supporting comments from everybody. She then worked on the panties she had been working on. The whole reason for the machine. After she had done the seems, she had the elastic to add, but she realised that the elastic she had was too think for what she wanted, so she could not finish them. Also she took apart her checkered pink bra as it no longer fitted her and she needed it to help make templates so she can start making bras. As she was on a bit of a dead end until she could get the elastic she needed, Blaire stopped work and let her hair down, figuratively speaking. She had a group show and then popped off. I posted the Watch, Listen and Read post and then headed to bed. She came back on camera about 4AM, but as that is technical Monday (OK still Sunday for her) I will leave that till next week's post.

Well that is it for this week's Neoscream's Life. I would like to say sorry for any spelling mistakes in any of my posts, past and futcher. Sadly Word does not like spell check stuff I typed up on the BlackBerry.
