CosmicBreak News Update 2

The Cosmic Break Finial Beta is now open. It will be running for a week before the standard version starts. There are several special event currently being ran:

Start Dash Campaign: Form the start of the Finial Beta until January 14th. During the hours of 2AM to 5AM GMT, UC, Exp and Drop Rate will all be multiplied x1.5.

Currently I am enjoying the game but with connection problems and other things I have not been able to do much. However I have posted two pictures of the customs I have done with my Robots. The first one is the front view of a repaint of Lily Rain which I call Lily Rain Flower who is the main bot I use and the second is a Mecha Knight repainted as Starscream. I also have a Katana Max GOLD, a Zero Fighter and a Jaguar Arm. I am thinking on getting Crimrose to repaint in to a Starscream fan girl and a Needle Mog to by Mr. Hedgehog. For those who what to know my in game name is Holica (sadly I did not know I could name the robots) and my union is WIZ. Until next time enjoy.

Heroclix Special 6, Rulers and Minions

Sadly there is no Heroclix this week, but Darren has stated that we will be playing next week which will be the last game of 2010.

This week Wizkidz reviled the LE figures and 3D objects form the DC 75th Anniversary organised play sets. Also the set was released this week too.

In this week’s DreamClix I will be doing Gatou from Naruto, Cabaji from One Piece, Emperor Pilaf from Dragon Ball, the Gillian from Bleach, Kakashi’s Dog Squad from Naruto, Mohji and Richie duo figure from One Piece and the dials for the Demon Brothers duo figure from Naruto and the Beast Man Warrior generic from Dragon Ball. As there Anime-Media.com has not posted the English subs for episode 11 of Iron Man there will be no Iron Man clix this week.

First off is Gatou from Naruto. Gatou was a very important ship magnate before he got killed by Zabuza. His shipping company was merely a facade for illegal activities like smuggling and dealing drugs. He hired Zabuza and his team, so that they would prevent Tazuna from finishing the bridge. Making sure that the Wave Country did not have any contacts with the other countries. Leaving the country in the hands of Gatou to control and rule it. He was a very ruthless man who wanted to accomplish his goal by all means necessary, even if that meant killing innocent villagers. He should have Mastermind and a special called "Money Talks".
Money Talks: Gatou can use Perplex. He can use it twice a turn but the second time is a power action than a free action. Also if he uses it on a character with a Minion ability, he changes the value by two instead of one.
He should have about four clicks of health and starting states of Movement 6, attack 7, defence 17, damage 1 and range 0. He should have no TA and have the keywords Gatou and Ruler.

Next is Cabaji from One Piece. Cabaji is the second mate of Buggy's crew. He is not only an acrobat, but some sort of pyrotechnic expert. He had to fight Zoro and they both fell at the end. He should have the transporter ability, Blades, Close Combat Reflexs and Range Combat Expert. He should have about five or six clicks of health and starting states of Movement 10, attack 10, defence 17, damage 2 and range 6 with one target. He should have the One Piece TA and have the keywords Pirate and Buggy Pirates.

Next is Emperor Pilaf from Dragon Ball. Emperor Pilaf is a small blue imp-like creature who craves nothing more than power and dreams of ruling the world. He rules over an empire that consists of his castle in the Diablo Desert, and his two followers, Shu and Mai. He should have a special called "Loyal Minions", another special called "Bobby Trap" and Prob Control.
Loyal Minions: Pilaf can use Mastermind. He can Mastermind damage normally or to characters with the name Shu or/and Mai that he can draw a line of sight to.
Bobby Trap: Give Pilaf a power action and select one object with in Pilaf's range carried or un-carried. Characters in the same squre as the object or carrying it takes D6 minus one, minimum of one, damage. Characters that are adjusent to the object or carrier takes one click of damage. Characters with Super Sences may make a Super Sences roll to avoid the damage unless they are carrying the object. The object is destoried after the action has ended.
He should have about five clicks of health and starting states of Movement 6, attack 8, defence 16, damage 1 and range 6 with one target. He should have the Dragon Ball TA and have the keywords Ruler, Pilaf Gang and Minions of Picallo.

Next is the Gillian from Bleach. Gillian, also called Menos Grande are the first and weakest of all Menos. Though most Hollows are simply transformed Human souls, a sub-group of Hollows known as Menos, exist. Menos are conglomerations of hundreds of normal Hollows, resulting in a single composite entity of far greater strength than any normal Hollow. These cannibal Hollows are attracted to one another, and a mass inter-devouring follows, resulting in a Gillian. Following this transformation, the Gillian can evolve twice more, first into an Adjuchas and finally into a Vasto Lorde, provided certain conditions are met. Menos-class Hollows are considered so dangerous that Soul Society sends only highly trained Soul Reaper teams to handle them. In human terms the Gillian would be considered foot soldiers. There are many of them and they all look alike. In Soul Society, they are the "Menos" that are generally referred to in textbooks. Gillians are huge, but they are slow and have beast-like intellect. Any Captain would be able to destroy them with ease. Up to the point when Rukia Kuchiki meets Ichigo Kurosaki, she has only seen them in such textbooks, despite having been a Soul Reaper for many years. Gillains commonly attack in a group and one is powerful enough to be a challenge for a Lieutenant of the Gotei 13. Gillians typically arrive in the Human World through the use of spatial distortions called Kūmon. They should have the Giant symble, the Sharp Shotter symble, Force Blast, a special called "Lieutenant Level Threat", Invulnerability, Toughness, Range Combat Expert and a Trait called "Devalour of Hollows".
Devalour of Hollows: Give Gillian a power action, deal D6 minus two, minimum of one, unvidable damage to an adjusent friendly with the Hollow keyword that does not have the Menos keyword. Gillian heals that many clicks.
Lieutenant Level Threat: Damage dealt by Blades to Gillian is redusted by two. This special ability can not be outwitted.
They should have about six clicks of health and starting states of Movement 5, attack 10, defence 18, damage 3 and range 10 with one target. They should have no TA and have the keywords Hollow and Menso.

Next is Kakashi’s Dog Squad from Naruto. Kakashi can summon a pack of eight ninja dogs to his side. The dogs are capable of talking and each one has a symbol on his back, a face used on scarecrows. Kakashi primarily uses them for tracking purposes, sending them out to find and if necessary pin down a target until he arrives. They should have the duo symble, a trait call "Sniffer Hounds", Charge, a special called "Pack Tactics", Blades, Close Combat Reflex and Outwit.
Sniffer Hounds: Opposing Characters with in 4 squres of Kakashi’s Dog Squad can not use Stealth and Stealth like abilities.
Pack Tactics: Kakashi’s Dog Squad can use Flurry. If at least two attacks hit the some target, place an actions token on the target at the end of all the attacks.
They should have about five clicks of health and starting states of movement 12, attack 8, defence 17, damage 2 and range 0. They should have the Naruto TA and have the keywords Animal and Konohagakure.

Next is Mohji and Richie duo figure from One Piece. Mohji is a pirate and the first mate of the Buggy Pirates. He is a pet tamer, usually accompapnied by his pet lion Richie. They should be on a double base and should have the duo symble, Charge, Flurry, Blades, Closer Combat Reflexes and a special called "Animel Tramer".
Animal Tramer: Mohji and Richie can use Perplex but only on characters with the Animal keyword.
They should have about 6 clicks of health and starting states of movement 12, attack 9, defence 17, damage 3 and range 2 with one target. They should have the One Piece TA and have the keywords Animal, Pirate and Buggy Pirates.

Lastly we have the dials for the Demon Brothers duo figure from Naruto and Beast Man Warrior generic from Dragon Ball. I made one change to the Demon Brothers, I added Stealth as I forgot to list it last time. I also did some change to the Beast Man Warrior dial. I decided to make them go frenzy on their last click by giving them Willpower and Battle Fury. I also up their defence value as it was too low. You might have noticed, I never added a picture for the Beast Man Warrior dial. I am planing to not to add pictures for generics.



For next week’s DreamClix, I will be doing a Charismas special so non mange characters unless Heroclix is called off. Until next time, enjoy.

Labels A to Z, Part 14

Clix Campaign - NSL - A campaign is a continuing storyline or set of adventures, typically involving the same characters. The purpose of the continuing storyline is to introduce a further aspect into the game: that of development, improvement, and growth (or degeneration) of the characters. In a campaign, a single session becomes a scene or an act within an overall story arc. At its inception, a campaign may or may not have a defined conclusion. A campaign by definition spans more than one session of play. Certain aspects of the game are nearly always constant throughout a campaign: the setting, the players, and the gamemaster. The gamemaster for a campaign is said to run the campaign. I use this label for this Heroclix campaign that we were doing.

Contest - NSL - A contest is an event in which two or more individuals or teams engage in competition against each other, often for a prize or similar incentive. I used this label when I was talking about Blaire's male model contest which CuddaHunter won.

CosmicBreak - NSL/MSW - CosmicBreak is an MMO third person shooter featuring massive PvP battles of up to 30 vs. 30 players at one time. Familiar WASD control and fast-paced Arena action makes CosmicBreak quick and easy to get into for any gamer. There is over 50 unique playable robots with over 300 mix-matchable parts makes for endless customization options. Every robot has different abilities, and many feature special weapons and collectable rare parts. Using the powerful robot assembly system, you'll be able to build unique robots that are yours and yours alone.

Extra - MSW - These are game rules that do not fix into the other rules chapters.

Ground Vehicle - MSW - These are standard land based vehicles that move on wheels, tracks and ever hover in later levels. They form the support side to your force. The three main types of Ground Vehicles at the moment are: Tanks - These carry powerful long range weapon and thick armour, but are fasts. They normally have the ability to move and fire with Heavy Weapon with not any heavy penalties. These are normally Size Class 1 but there are some Size Class 2 ones too. Transports - These units can carry infantry and some vehicles to the places they are needed. There are normally Size Class 0 for standard sized ones or 1 for large ones. Jeeps - These are small vehicles many used as scouting and command based units. But they can carry a small number of infantry, normally only one unit. There are normally Size Class 0.

Other label still to cover at the point of time: Infantry, Mecha, Necromunda, Small SRACU, Tank and Updates.

CosmicCommander News

Sadly Cosmic Commander Alpha Test has ended Yesterday evening. I was a very nice mini game. I would like to see it come back with a lot more features and units.

Neoscream's Life, the 6th to the 12th of December

Alternity Starscream, a Starscream that transforms
into a sports car WTF

Last week was sickness and gaming plans, but what will this week be like?

On Monday morning, for a first time for a long time SuzySmartz was on camera on MFC. Suzy was introducing a new Smartz girl, ChristySmartz. Blaire also came online too but not on camra as she had done her back in. Poor Blaire wish I could help. I posted the Watch, Listen and Read post before going to wortk which I did not get around to do on Sunday night. I started work at 11AM and was down to finish at  3PM, but I ended up finishing at 5:30PM. This would have been OK if I was not still filling sick. At least I was down to have Wednesday off I can regain my stronght then. When I got home I work on last week's Neoscream's Life post, watched some stuff and played some CosmicCommander. Also I noticed t-shirt on the Monday Madness sales on Play.com that Darren might like however I was not able to get his size until it was too. Never mind.

Not much happen on Tuesday. I started work as 12PM and was down to finish at 4PM, however due to staffing problems I ended up finishing at 7:45PM and I had to come on Wednesday now. Sadly I only just finish writing last week's Neoscream's Life post at 11PM so I did not have time to post it as I needed to go to bed as I have work the next day.

On Wednesday morning I managed to post last week's Neoscream's Life post, a whole day late sadly. I worked from 12PM to 4PM. After work I headed to Sanisbury's as I ran out of Ibuprofen in the morning. While there I noticed a deal on gift ideas which helped solve Richard's and Darren's gifts. When I get home I posted two units posts on my MS Wars blog, Played a bit of CosmicCommander and worked on my Heroclix post.

On Thursday I worked from 11AM to 4PM and Heroclix happened like normal.

Friday was my day off work. Finally I can rest to try to get rid of this damn cold and coth. I got up about 10AM and started work on finishing off the Heroclix post which I thought would not take that long. It took about six hours to finish and post. After I done that I started filling out the fourm Nathan F e-mailed my and Richard for background for our characters for role-play. However, I did not get that far as I was also playing on CosmicCommander too and cheecking out stuff about the main game CosmicBreak.

At coffee on Saturday were just me, Richard and Darren. While speecking to Richard I learnt that he had really done any work on the fourm ever. Also Richard recived a massage from Richy, saying that he will be coming back to Milton Keynes for Chrismas and New Year on the 21st. I worked from 12PM to 4:30AM. At 6PM, me and Richard got to Nathan's for Role-Play, where we meet the other play. We first talked about our characters backgrounds. Then we had to redo our characters as Nathan decided to make us level one Civilian instead of level zero characters. After we finished our characters we final started the game. For those who have forgotten we are playing Starship Troopers. We all had to go and sign up, deal with friends and family and start our training we did a fantastic run in the first training exesides. We finished about 11PM. As Richard is busy next Saturday we move Role-Play to next Sunday at the same time but with a earlier finish.

Lastly early Sunday morning Blaire came online. She show off her reorganised studio and talked about a change of plan on how she uses MFC. By the sound of it she has had enough of people with closed minds complaining and bad mouthing her for sewing on camra on MFC. So she will now only go on MFC if she is feeling Horny. However she is planning other ways to be online while working on clothes. Sadly I was not off work this Sunday (or next Sunday too). I started work at 12PM and finish at 2:45PM. When I got home I played some CosmicCommander and cheecking out the CosmicBreak forums. I am planning on trying out CosmicBreaker when it comes back online.

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

16th of December - Rules - Unit Special Abilities (MS War only)
17th of December – Heroclix post
19th of December – Watch, Listen and Read (maybe if not the next day)
21st of December – Neoscream's Life and Units - Cavendish Troop Transport (MS Wars Only)
No Planned Date - Labels A to Z
No Planned Date - CosmicCommander review.

Until next time, enjoy.

CosmicBreak News Update 1

Lily Rain
The Single player mode for CosmicBreak is now up. It is a stand alone (while two stand alone) mission where you can play one of three characters with the others being NPC squad mates. There is a medium difficulty mode and a hard difficulty mode. Both have different characters to choose from and by the sound of it they might also be different missions too. As I am posting this post I have only tried the medium difficulty twice. First time I did crap as I did not know the controls. However I manage to work out how to attack and manage to get to the boss of Stage 1. Currently I do not know if there is any more stages after that  as the boss killed me. In both tries I used the human robot Lily Rain. By the look of Crimrose's background the human robot are more like cyborgs. Well tomorrow at 5PM GMT CosmicCommander Alpha test will be ending and the final Beta test for CosmicBreak will start of the same time on Thursday. Until Next time, enjoy.

The Green Lantern OFFICIAL trailer

Transformers (3): Dark of the Moon Official Trailer

Heroclix 9th of December, Colours of the Rainbow

As the bothers are not with us this week again, the Campaign is on hold, however me and Darren with still be playing Heroclix game. This week we did three 600 points games, four actions a turn and each team must be based on a colour.

My first team was green based. This was easy as after seeing the trailler to the new Green Lantern film that is out next year I have been wanting to do a Green Lantern team. With the second team I choose blue as I wanted to use the Blue Lantern version of The Flash. I added Batman and Superman to give it a bit of a JSA fell. I then Dr. Alchemy and The Question for support and lastly I added a Blackhawk to the mix. For the last team I choose red as I wanted to use Red She-Hulk. Then I throwed in Utimate Iron Man as I had not used that version in awhile. Then Spider-Man and Spider-Girl followed by Scarlet. However on the night I realised I made a massive mistake, I grabbed Iron Widows dial instead of the Iron Man dial I waited.

Team 1: Lantern Green Corps (Green)
Green Lantern (Blackest Night) 150 + Green Lantern (ATA) 5 = 155
Kyle Rayner (Crisis) 182 + Green Lantern (ATA) 5 = 187
Tomar Re (Green Lantern Corps) 111 + Green Lantern (ATA) 5 = 116
Abin Sur (Green Lantern Corps) 137 + Green Lantern (ATA) 5 = 142
=600 points and 2 re-rolls.

Team 2: DC Blue Boys (Blue)
The Flash (Blackest Night) 140
Batman (Justice League) 75
Superman (Vet Icons) 251
Dr. Alchemy (Justice League) 62
The Question (Arkham Asylum) 37
Blackhawks (Vet Origin) 35
=600 points and no re-rolls.

Team 3: Marvel Rampaging Red (Red)
Red She-Hulk (Web of Spider-Man) 139
Spider-Girl (Secret Invasion) 77
Iron Man (Avengers) 154 Iron Widow (Avenger) 118
Scarlet Witch (Vet Fantastic Forces) 62
Rogue (Vet Fantastic Forces) 95
Spider-Man (Secret Invasion) 50
=541 points and no re-rolls.


Darren’s Teams were:

Team 1: Red Hulk’s Rampage (Red)
Red Hulk (Web of Spider-Man) 220
Red She-Hulk (Web of Spider-Man) 139
Deadpool (Web of Spider-Man) 158
Jean Grey (Danger Room) 50
Falcon (Rook Sinister) 30
=597 points and no re-rolls.

Team 2: The Shadows of the X-Men (Black)
Warpath (Web of Spider-Man) 70
Wolverine (Web of Spider-Man) 105
Nightcrawler (Web of Spider-Man) 86
Bishop (Mutations and Monsters) 100
Storm (Mutations and Monsters) 100
Xorn (Ultimates) 94
Havok (Mutant Mayhem) 44
=599 points and three re-rolls.

Team 3: Green Rangers (Green)
Parademon Grunt (Brave and the Bold) 33
Green Arrow (Crisis) 104
Green Lantern (Crisis) 157
The Spectre (Crisis) 234
Green Arrow (Justice League) 70
=598 points and no re-rolls.

The first game was my Green Team vs. Darren’s Red Team. In began as a stalemate, but it did it turn to a victory to Darren’s side. However I did take down Falcon. The second game was my Blue Team vs. Darren’s Black Team. Sadly I stupidly underestimated Nightcrawler and did notice that Xorn had TK. So after destroying his Storm with both Superman and the Flash, Xorn TKed Nightcrawler up and then he puffed in front of Superman, grabbed him and puffed Superman off to when the other X-Men were and the gang rapped him. They others manage to OK Warpath, Xron and Havok before being destroyed. The last game was my Red Team vs. Darren’s Green team. This was when Darren noticed the mistake I made by grabbing the wrong dial. What I should have done but forgot about was swooped the figure out for Super-Nova Iron Man as he was still in my case. But with the massive points gap I still managed to win. OK Darren’s dice rolls were super crap with lots of 3s and mine were very good lots of 10s and 11s, so it was all down to luck. However it was a well needed victory.

Next week game, which most likely be the last game of the year will be what Darren calls Trinity. We each need to build three 300 teams, one most have Batman, one must have Superman and the other must have Wonder Woman. By the sound of it the same teams will not play ageist each other.

Wizkidz reviled three new figures this week for the DC 75th Anniversary set. Barry Allen (The Flash), Zamaron and Queen Aga’Po. They also showed off the two new maps for the set that comes in prize support packs. Also HCRealms have posted a full listing with dials of the whole new set. Wow. However there are no LEs and the White Lantern Sinestro is missing too.  

In this week’s DreamClix I will be doing Shu and Mia duo figure from Dragon Ball, a Samaria Thug generic for Naruto, Rukia Kuchiki with soul reaper powers and the dial for “Iron Mace” Alvida pre-devil fruit powers. Also from the Iron Man anime I will be doing Zodiac Warrior Sagittarius, Armoured Soldier, Ho Yinsan in the Iron Man Dio Armour and Iron Man Sigma drones.

First off is the Shu and Mia duo figure from Dragon Ball. Shu is Emperor Pilaf's ninja lackey and an anthropomorphic fox. Mai is Emperor Pilaf's female minion. She always works with Shu and although she's quite intelligent, the two of them always manage to fail their objectives. They should have the Duo ability, Leap Climb, Blades, a special called “Power Suits”, Perplex, Close Combat Reflexes and a minion power called “Emperor Pilaf’s Right Hand”.
Power Suit: Shu and Mia can use the Flight ability, Super Strength and Invulnerability. If a friendly Emperor Pilaf is adjacent to them, he gains this ability too.
Emperor Pilaf’s Right Hand: Minion – If Shu and Mia are within eight squares of a friendly Emperor Pilaf, they gain Willpower and +1 to their Attack value.
They should have about four or five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 9, Defence 16, Damage 2 and Range 6 with one target. They should have no TA and the keywords Pilaf Gang, Minions of Piccole and Martial Artist.

Next are the Samaria Thug generic for Naruto. Gatou had meanly Thugs/Thugess Samaria working for him, all motivated by money. They should have the Blades, Close Combat Reflexes and a minion power called “Hired Swords”.
Hired Swords: Minion – If there is a figure with the Ruler keyword within eight squares of this figure, this figure gains Toughness and +1 to their Attack value while the Rule gains Mastermind or Perplex if they already have Mastermind.
They should have about four clicks of health with starting states of Movement 6, Attack 9, Defence 15, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. They should have no TA and the keywords Warrior, Gatou and Orochimaru.

Next is Rukia Kuchiki from Bleach with her soul reaper powers. This version of Rukia is what we first see of her before she lost her powers at the start of the manga. She should have Leap Climb, Blades, Incapacitate and a special called "Power Exchange".
Power Exchange: Give Rukia a power action. An adjacent character with an ability to change to another figure (Alter Ego or Morph), may change to the other figure without meeting any request as a free action. Also you may remove one action counter from the character. At the end of the action deal one click of unavoidable damage to Rukia.
She should have about five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 9, Defence 17, Damage 2 and Range 6 with one target. She should have the Bleach TA and the keywords Soul Reaper and Squad 12.

Next is Zodiac Warrior Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the Zodiac Warrior they have on episodes 9 and 10. I really like the look of this Warrior. It should be double baser with the Transporter ability, Running Shot, a special called "Arrow Blaster", Invulnerability and Toughness.
Arrow Blaster: Sagittarius can use Energy Explosion and Range Combat Expert. Damage from Energy Explosion is 2 instead of 1.
It should have about five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 3 and Range 8 with two targets. It should have the Hydra TA and the keywords of Zodiac, Armour and Robot.

Next is an Armoured Soldier generic. Now I will try to design this to be useable in other Marvel teams than just Zodica, for example S.H.I.E.L.D. who were not in the show or at least at the moment. They should have Incapacitate, Smoke Cloud, Toughness and a minion power called "Chain of Command".
Chain of Command: Minion - If there is a figure with a keyword that Armoured Soldier has within eight squares of this figure that was of a higher points cost, this figure gains Perplex but can only use it on itself. If the keyword was Soldier they gain Willpower as well.
They should have about four or five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 10, Defence 16, Damage 2 and Range 6 with one target. They should have the S.H.I.E.L.D. TA and the keywords Soldier, S.H.I.E.L.D., H.A.M.M.E.R. and Zodiac.

Next is Ho Yinsan in the Iron Man Dio Armour. When Zodiac stolen the Dio armour they give it to Yinsan, they guy who helped make the prototype Iron Man suit. Tony thought Yinsan die back in the cave by he was save by a woman from a nearby village. I will leave the background here as it is stepping on to too much Spoilers. Yansan is now working for Zodiac in the Dio armour. He seems as skilled at operating the suit as Tony is, but more ruffles.  He should have Running Shot, Charge, Range Combat Expert, Invulnerability, Toughness and Perplex. He should have about seven clicks of health with starting states of Movement 12, Attack 11, Defence 17, Damage 3 and Range 8 with one target. He should have the Hydra TA and the keywords of Zodiac, Armour and Scientist.

Next is the Iron Man Sigma drones. These are robotic drones made by Zodiac based off the stolen Iron Man Dio armour. These drones were controlled by Yinsan. Currently only four have been known to have been built but with two more episodes to go things might change. The Sigmas are in grey and jungle cameo colours. They should have Range Combat Expert, Invulnerability, Toughness and a minion power called "Stolen Tech".
Stolen Tech: Minion - If there is a figure called Yinsan or Iron Man Dio within eight squares of this figure, this figure can use Running Shot. If there is one Iron Man Sigma within eight squares of this figure, this figure can use Perplex and there is two Iron Man Sigma within eight squares also gains +1 to its Attack value.
They should have about five or six clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 9, Defence 17, Damage 3 and Range 8 with one target. They should have the Hydra TA and the keywords of Zodiac, Armour and Robot.

And lastly we have the dial for the pre-devil fruit powers “Iron Mace” Alvida from One Piece. I have added Change to her as she was lucking anything useful.


I am planning on doing for next week’s DreamClix, Gatou from Naruto, Cabaji from One Piece, Emperor Pilaf from Dragon Ball and the dial for the Demon Brothers duo figure from Naruto. Also may some stuff from the Iron Man anime, but as episode 11 is the second to last episode I expect that anything new here will be in episode 12 too. Until next time, enjoy.

Neoscream's Life, the 29th of November to the 5th of December

Sorry about the late posts, I have not been felling well so I could not concentrate on writing. Last week was building, but what will this week be like?


Not much happened on Monday. I posted another units post on my MS Wars. I worked form 10AM to 12PM and then I went to Hobbycraft for bits to try to make ladders with.

On Tuesday morning Blaire was on-line but she was not on cam or responding, however she did post a tweet on Twitter saying that she wound be cutting patterns for her thermal Bra and Thong and sewing them together with her special guest CuddaHunter. I noticed that Blaire had updated her Amazon wish-list so I decided to order her Christmas gift. In fact it was two, a book about dyeing clothes and some white fabric. These should be useful with her with her designing. I then posted last week's Neoscream's Life post. As I was getting ready I noticed that it had snowed but not that heavily. I left the house at 8:50AM for the bus as I was meant to be at work for 9:30AM. I waited for half an hour in the cold but the bus never turn up, not even one going the other way. I had to phoned for a taxi. The taxi would not be able to pick me up until 9:45AM so I was late work but luckily they were OK with it due to weather. I ended up finishing at 12:15PM. On the why home I text my mate asked they mates about what gifts would they like. When I got home I started working on the ladders. I work on two different designs of ladder. One made of silver rubbing and one of card board. The rubbing one is too thin and curls up and the card board one looks more like they are wooden ladders than metal ones. During the evening I received a reply from Jake saying "Anything". So I went onto Amazon so that I could hunted down and order Christmas gifts for Marisa, Jake and Cole.

Blaire came on-line on Wednesday about 12:30AM. She was making a prototype thermal a thong with CuddaHunter hiding behind the camera with the job of designing mens thermal underwear. After she made them she showed them off on CuddaHunter's member cam. She went off camera about 4:30AM so I went back to bed. When I went to check the laptop at 6:45AM she was back on-line. I did not notice her coming back on-line as I for got to unplug the headphone. She was cooling out and getting ready for a body painting show in group. She went off line at about 8:15AM. I worked from 10AM to 1PM. When I get home my mum got me to ordered a couple of things off my Amazon Wise-List. When my dad got home we watch his open his cards and saw what his staff got him. It was his 65th birthday.

Early Thursday morning Blaire came on-line and was making reversible version of the thong she was making yesterday. As I was too tired I went back to bed after 15 to 20 minutes asking her to PM my if anything big happens as the computer would still be on. When I woke up I looked out to the window to check on the snow. Be the look of is it had not snowed during the night. I posted the next MS Wars rules post on the MS Wars blog. About two hours after waking up I was about to leave for work when I noticed that I had started snowing heavily between when I got up and then and when I was leaving. Luckily the bus was only running a little late and still got me to work on time. I worked from 10AM to 4PM. Due to the bad weather Darren S called off Heroclix off so I work on a double bill of DreamClix.

When I woke up on Friday morning I had a sore throat. I post posted the Heroclix post. I worked from 10AM to 4:30PM. The throat got so bad I could not speck. So after work I headed to Sainsbury's for some throat sweets and Ibuprofen. Will doing this I received a text from Richard about celebrating his birthday tomorrow (his Birthday was on Wednesday too). Blaire came on-line during the evening but not on cam at first. We chat on chatted for a while and she was saying would be would be on cam later on it the day meaning early in the morning tomorrow. However some thing happen that made her come on cam much early then she was plan. The Postman came with the book I ordered for her as a Christmas gift. Poor Buddy (Blaire's dog) was scared by the post arriving. She really loved the book and was planning things. She was cam for about an hour and a half before going off line. I then headed to bed.

At coffee on Saturday were just me, Richard and Darren. We started at 10AM instead of 10:30AM due to packing problems during the Christmas time. But that did not stop Darren turning up at 11AM. While waiting for Darren, Richard told me that a person he use to know was back in Milton Keynes and is instested in joining the Necromuda campaign as well as running some role-play games who also has some friends that might join too. Sadly I had to leave early because of ordit had started at work. I worked from 11:30AM to 4:30PM. It looked like they sent me home earlier than planned as my throt got bad again. Most looooikely the constantly taking orders next to an open window in cold weather just made the healing sore throat to a badly sore throat and a cold. Even tho the way I felt I should not have gone out to the get together for  Richard's birthday, I still went. Richard, Jake, weird Rob and his brother, Collett, Lynda, Sara, Jenny, Darren and Lisa all turned up for it.

Lastly on Sunday I was up early as I could not sleep as I felt too cold. I was still unwell. As I was expecting a phone call from Richard any time after 10AM about meeting up with his friend to talk about Nercomunda and role-play games. While waiting I found an interesting on-line game, CosmicCommaner. It was an on-line multi player strategy simulation game where you own a bunch of robots, you put them is squads of 5 to 6 bots and send them off on missions/battle. It get to about 3PM when I said damn it and phoned him. He said he would pick me up about 5PM. When we got then we first talked about Necromunda Nathan F. Nathan F was planning on doing an Enforcers team by making them out of plastic Imperial Guard and Space Marine scouts as you can only get Enforcers as a box of 6 guys and a Cyber-mastif (just over half of the team) for a whopping £20. All he needs is a robot/cybernetic dog to use as a Cyber-mastif. Richard is thinking of doing a Delaque gang and I am planning on doing a Van Saar team. Then we move on to Role-play games. After going though all the games we could do we came up with a list of six games we would like to do: D&D 3.5, Hunter, Star Wars, Starship Troopers, Excited and Shadow Run. Nathan decided that he would run a boot camp Starship Troopers for several weeks to let us get use to the way he runs games and then decided to continal or choose another game. When I got home I look around for figure to use as Van Saar. The Nomads from a game called Infinity look great however they very costly at about £6 a figure. Afterwoulds I headed off to bed. Saddly I forgot to post a new MS War post or work on this post.

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

8th of December – Units: Human Heavy Weapon team (MS Wars blog only) and Units Update: Amago, Standard Type (MS Wars blog only)

HeroClix Special 5, Snowed Out

Due to the bad weather Heroclix was cancelled. So I have a double bill of DreamClix for you. There will be no new Iron Man anime DreamClix as all the new characters were show are in the next with more detailed next week. So I am waiting to do them.

Wizkidz reviled two new figures this week for the DC 75th Anniversary set. Detective Chimp and the red lantern Atrocitus. Also I miss two figures last week, Gorillla City Warrior and Solovar. It nice to finally see the other Lantern Corps being boosted.

In this week’s DreamClix I will be doing Soichiro Yagami from Death Note, Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball, Ox King from Dragon Ball, Haku from Naruto and two generics for Death Note, Japanese Police Officer and FBI Agent. Also two dial designs, one for Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto and one for Buluma from Dragon Ball.

First off is Soichiro Yagami. Soichiro Yagami is Light's father and a police officer that initially leads the Kira investigation team. As work on the Kira case begins, he becomes disappointed with the lack of police cooperation in capturing Kira, eventually joining forces with L to form a special investigative team. When L begins to suspect Light of being Kira, Soichiro is unwilling to believe his son would be capable of such a thing. Though he eventually suffers a stress related heart attack, he insists on remaining helpful to the team, going as far as breaking into the Sakura TV station using a police bus. He should have the powers Willpower, a special called something like "The Chief", and Outwit at the end of his dial.
The Chief: Soichiro can use Leadership. All figures with the Police keyword that are is within 8 squares of Soichiro gain Willpower and +1 to defence.
He should have four or five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 8, Defence 17, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. He should have the PD TA and the keywords Police, Detective and Anti Kira Task Force.

Next is Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball. Chi-Chi is the daughter of the Ox-King and future human wife of Goku. She has got a very tomboyish, tough and very fierce personality, which sometimes causes her to have anger outbursts seen several times throughout the series'. She should have as power, a trait called “Daughter of the OX King”, Psychic Blast and Range Combat Expert.
Daughter of the OX King: If Chi-Chi is within 8 squares of a figure with the name Ox King she can draw a clear line of fire to him, both her and the Ox King gaina +1 to their Attack values.
She should have about four clicks of health with starting states of Movement 9, Attack 9, Defence 17, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. She should have the Dragon Ball TA and the keywords Kid and Martial Artist.

Next is Ox King from Dragon Ball. Ox-King is the King of Fire Mountain and the father of Chi-Chi. He once trained with Goku's adoptive grandfather Gohan under Master Roshi. He should have the powers Blades, Close Combat Expert and Toughness. He should have about five to six clicks of health with starting states of Movement 6, Attack 9, Defence 16, Damage 3 and Range 0. He should have the Dragon Ball TA and the keywords Ruler, Brute and Martial Artist.

Next is Haku from Naruto. Haku was a villager from the Land of Water. He later became a Ninja after meeting Zabuza Momochi. Haku had the kekkei genkai ability of Ice Release, which allowed him to control both Water Release and Wind Release. With Haku I am going to still some of Larfleeze abilities. He should have trait called “Ice Release”, Indomitable, Running Shot, a special called “Ice Mirrors”, a special called “Demonic Ice Crystal Mirrors”, Poison and Support.
Ice Release: Ice Mirror objects are objects that cannot be picked up and are removed from the game if Haku is KO’d. Haku may make an attack and he can use is Poison (if he has it showing) as if he was in standing where the object is.
Ice Mirrors: Whenever Haku would be dealt damage, you may remove one Ice Mirror Object from the map and move Haku to where the object was.
Demonic Ice Crystal Mirrors: Once during your turn, you may give Haku a free action and place an Ice Mirror object on the map within his range and line of fire. If there are already three or more of these objects on the map, this is a power action instead.
He should have about five clicks of health with starting states of Movement 10, Attack 10, Defence 18, Damage 3 and Range 4 with two targets. He should have the Naruto TA and the keywords Kirigakure, Gatō and Ninja. Yes Haku is a guy even thou he looks like a girl.

Next is a Japanese Police Officer generic for Death Note. These can also be use with Dragon Ball and Bleach. They should have only a minion special called “Serve and Protect”.
Serve and Protect: When a friendly character with the Police keyword and a higher point value is within 8 squares, Japanese Police Officer can use Incapitate.
They should have about four clicks of health with starting states of Movement 6, Attack 9, Defence 15, Damage 1 and Range 6 with one target. They should have the PD TA and the keyword Police.

Then we have a FBI Agent generic from Death Note. They should have Stealth, a minion power call “Under Cover”, Willpower and Perplex.
Under Cover: When a friendly character with the Detective keyword and a higher point value is within 8 squares, FBI Agent can use Shape Change and gains a +1 to damage.
They should have about four clicks of health with starting states of Movement 8, Attack 9, Defence 16, Damage 1 and Range 6 with one target. They should have the PD TA and the keyword Detective.

And lastly we have the dials for Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto and Buluma from Dragon Ball. With Sasuke I did a couple of changes. The first is that I reduced his range and targets. This would be more suitable for a more experienced version. Lastly I also swapped Pulse Wave for Energy Explosion as is fits better.



I am planning on doing for next week’s DreamClix Shu and Mia duo figure from Dragon Ball, a Samaria Thug generic for Naruto, Rukia Kuchiki with soul reaper powers and the dial for “Iron Mace” Alvida pre-devil fruit powers. Also the way the Iron Man Anime is going I might be doing Zodiac Warrior Sagittarius, Ho Yinsan in the Iron Man Dio Armour and Iron Man Sigma drones. Until next time, enjoy.
