There was no HeroClix is week as Adrian could not make it this week. Next week's game should be Civil War. Bring two 500 points teams. One team must have a Captain America and the other must have an Iron Man. You cannot have the same charter in both teams.
Now for this week's extended DreamClix section. This week I am doing ideas for a pilot card for Suzaku Kururugi from Code Geass, flashback version of Lord Death from Soul Eater, Happy from Fairy Tail, Aiber from Death Note, Grune from Thundercats and Valefor from Final Fantasy. But first I have designs of the Humanoid version of the AEU-09 AEU Enact from Mobile Suit Gundam 00, the Earth Dragon Ball object from Dragon Ball, Marry from One Piece, Naomi Misora from Death Note, Evilbat from CosmicBreak and Mummies from Soul Eater.
Flight Magic: Happy does not reduce his Speed while carrying.
He should have about four clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 8, Attack 8, Defence 17, Damage 1 and Range 0. His team ability should be the Fairy Tail Guild one and his keywords should be Mystical, Fairy Tail Guild and Animal. The next Fairy Tail idea should be Aquarius.
Con-Man: When you revile your force, choose a generic keyword, Aiber gains that keyword until the end of the game.
He should have about four clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 7, Attack 9, Defence 18, Damage 2 and Range 0. He should not have a team ability and his keyword should be Kira Investigation Team. The next Death Note idea should be Wedy.
Destroyer Mace: After Grunge making a successful close combat attack, place an action token on the target on the attack.
He should have about six clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 7, Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 4 and Range 0. His team ability be should the Minions of Mumm-Ra one and his keywords should be Mumm-Ra's Horde, Thunderian, Brute, Soldier and Animal. The next Thundercats idea should be Slithe.
Sonic Wings: Valefor can use Pulse Wave. If it uses Pulse Wave, all characters that takes damage from it receives one action token.
Energy Blast: Give Valefor a double power action. It can make Energy Explosion attack with three targets. Damage from this Energy Explosion deals two damage instead of one.
Valefor should have about eight clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 9, Attack 11, Defence 18, Damage 4 and Range 6 with one target. The orange line should be at the start of the sixth click. Valefor team ability should the Mystics one and its keywords should be Aeon, Mystical, Summon and Final Fantasy X. The next Final Fantasy idea should be Princess Garnet.
Lastly is the DreamClix Dial Designs page update news. On Sunday there was an update to the DreamClix Dial Designs page, which was the Capcom updates. There were one new dial design and one new pictured team ability which are both shown below. There there was also an update on Wednesday which was the Code Geass update. There were one new dial design and one new pictured team ability which are both shown below. There should be an update on Sunday which should be the first of four CosmicBreak updates.
Well that is it for this week. Until next time, Mecha Up.

|Franky after the time skip|
On Monday I worked from 9:50AM to 4:30PM. In the evening I decided to posted last week's Neoscream's Life post early as I had it ready and to save me from a mad rush to post it tomorrow morning. After that I decided to check eBay from 15mm Sci-fi stuff as I was already on eBay looking for season five of Bleach and found a bunch of cheap stuff from Russia from a company called Tekhnolog. Their two main game of this scale were ZOD and Astroid. The main two sets I am looking on getting are 16 Astroid Mechs for £10.10 and 12 ZOD tanks for £15.15 with £3.79 postage and packaging on each of them. Sweet. Almost too good to be true.
Watched: Episodes 8 to 10 of GaoGaiGar and episode 7 of series two of Mobile Suit Gundam 00.
Read: Chapter 9 of part 2 of Mobile Suit Gundam: École du Ciel.
On Tuesday morning I tried to to see if the company did any other stuff before deciding to order any now or a later date. I found a review on a blog called Dropship Horizon about their ZOD stuff. Here is the review. With the quality of the plastic I would have to say it was obvious by some of the pictures and price that they were cheap. However the scale of the Mecha and Tanks is a problem. It is not the seller fault as it is the company who made them who states they are 1:100 scale (15mm). Also ttthe legal problem with the infantry is a big problem. So I decided to avoid them, for now. I worked from 9:50AM to 7:40PM. Yes that is right, a ten hour shift. While at work I did some thinking about MS Wars and Gruntz 15mm. I decided to go back to 12mm as I already have a bunch of vehicles and infantry at 12mm already and I have found out the Heavy Gear and CAV are both 12mm (I alway fought they were 10mm or smaller. However I will still be using Gruntz 15mm, but convert the ranges to 12mm. It is easy to do on a spreadsheet as 15mm is 1:100 and 12mm is 1:144. So the range divided by 1.44. In with be using half inches to help balance the conversions. With this decision I decided to pick up a pack of 16 mecha from Astroid when I paid for the box set of season five of Bleach.
Brought and Received: Picked up on eBay series five of Bleach.
On Wednesday moring before work I tried out the other Xbox game Roxy lent me, Fable III. From what I have played so far all I can really say is that it is Fable (which is goos), but I have heard that the game heavily changes halfway into the game. I worked from 9:50AM to 4:20PM. In the evening I went out with Darren H and Richard for a meal and some drinks at Wetherspoon. Darren H introduced me to a smart phone game called Draw Something and we both introduced Richard to Tweeter.
Thursday was a day off work, so I update the DreamClix Dial Designs page. Both of my parents were off today too. However my dad had to pop out to do some work. He wanted to use his Sat Nav, but the map data would not load up, it kept on saying they were locked. I spent most of the day trying to fix it and downloading things for it which took forever with my internet speed. In the end my dad phoned the helpline and they guided us to a download that resets the data on the Sat Nav, which worked. Like normal in the evening I went to HeroClix.
Watched: This week’s episode of WWE Raw, this week’s episode Gadget Geeks, episode 281 of the subtitled version of Bleach and episodes 6 and 7 of Let's Play Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time.
On Friday morning I finished off and posted this week's HeroClix MK post before work. I worked from 12PM to 4:10PM. I did not do much after that apart from playing Fable 3.
Watched: Episode 8 of the second season of Mobile Suit Gundam 00.
Listened: Episode 176 of Manga Pulse and episode 35 of Gundamn!@MAHQ.
On Saturday I had coffee with Darren, Richard and Collette. Richard was later as he lost track of time due to playing Minecraft. I worked from 12PM to 3:30PM. In the evening I finished of all the dial designs I needed for tomorrow and worked on tomorrow's Cosmic Cosplay post.
Watched: Episodes 92 to 97 of the dubbed version of Bleach.
Listened: Episode 36 of Gundamn!@MAHQ.
Brought and Received: Series five of Bleach arrived in the post.
Sunday was a day off work. I did an update to the DreamClix Dial Designs page and posted the Cosmic Cosplay post. There was no role-play this week a Nathan was busy. We tried all week to set a different date, but we could not get a date were everybody was free. I mainly got court up with shows.
Watched: Episodes 98 and 99 of the dubbed version of Bleach, the 2012 Malaysian F1 Grand Prix, episode 282 of the subtitled version of Bleach, episode 8 of Let's Play Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, episode 9 of Mobile Suit Victory Gundam and episode 9 of series two of Mobile Suit Gundam 00.
Listened: Episodes 50 and 51 of VG Pulse and episode 177 of Manga Pulse.

|Foxy in "Escape"|
|MadisonValentine in "Raider"|
First off is this week's new Cosplay Deviants sets. On Wednesday there was a set from the new Deviant Foxy. The set was called Escape and in it she cosplays as Babydoll from Sucker Punch. The new set on Saturday was a set from the Deviants MadisonValentine. The set is called Raider and in it she cosplays as Lara Croft from Tomb Raider.
Next is the CosmicBreak update news. This week there is a two new Moes, Haruka Langit and Akane Vermell. They are apart of the Wing Garapon with alternate versions of Haruka Langit, Akane Vermell, Ion Ps (that is what they called her), Nemlim Mellow and Renny Lop RS. This week's weekly Garapon features C.S..
Next is Star Trek Online update news. This week several new features have been added to the game. This first is that there is more things to do inside your ship now, there is a new daily event that lets you can mine for Dilithium Ore if you have an EV suit and the veteran reward for 800 days of paid subscription has been revealed.
Next is Dungeons and Dragons Online updates. There has been no updates to Dungeons and Dragons Online this week.
Now for the last section of the post, the DreamClix Section. This week I am doing ideas for Ivis from CosmicBreak and Tidus from Final Fantasy X, as well as a design for the Cosplay card for the deviant Quinn.
First is Ivis from CosmicBreak. She used to be the Crimrose's best friend in their childhood. Then she, along with Crimrose, went into a special research laboratory to improve their powers with the experiments there. They met many children there and whom they would play with. Sadly Crimrose's experiment ended into a failure and was thrown into the garbage by the professor. Ivis wasn't aware of this because the professor tricked her, telling her that Crimrose was alright and was saving the universe out there. Entering in the last experiment and completing it with a successful overview, the professor made his perfect killing machine, meanwhile Ivis was wandering around the lab and found the mutated corpses of their old friends. Ivis had a mental shock and was paralyzed while the professor explained everything to her (even the fate of Crimrose). Arising in her was a feeling of madness and despair because she now knew that her beloved friend was wasted off like garbage, and she killed the professor and destroyed the lab. Her fate from there was unknown until she entered in to the Angel Force telling people that "she was a new hero for the arks", but surprisingly she she met Crimrose there. But Crimrose's memories had faded away and she couldn't remember Ivis, so Ivis tried to force Crimrose to remember her, to the point of kidnapping her. This only caused Ivis to awaken her chaos powers, triggering the alarms in the Angel force and forcing her to retreat as she tried to take Crimrose with her. Later her sword of darkness has been returned to the side of justice by Crimrose. She now fights to stop others from giving in to Chaos. She should have Change, Blades, Toughness, Combat Reflexes and two specials "Crimrose Veil" and "Friends and Rivals".
Crimrose Veil: Ivis can use Charge and Plasticity. When she uses Charge, she can move her full Speed value.
Friends and Rivals: If Ivis is within 4 squares of a character called Crimrose or Seraph Crimrose, she gains a plus one to her Attack value.
She should have about six clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 8, Attack 11, Defense 18, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. Her team ability should be the LND one and her keywords should be Chaos, Moe, Robot and Unions. The next CosmicBreak idea should be Hoverion.
Provoke: Adjacent friendly characters gain a +2 to their Defence values. Opposing characters within four squares with Charge can break away for free if they attack Tidus.
He should have about six clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 8, Attack 10, Defense 17, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. His team ability should be the Final Fantasy one and his keywords should be Sports and Final Fantasy X. The next Final Fantasy idea should be Valefor.
Until next time, Mecha Up.

This week, as the brothers are not around, me and Darren had a huge Avengers vs Skrulls game. 2,500 points, maximum of one feat, ten actions split into two five action phases, Darren will be Skrulls and I will be Avengers. My Avengers team ended up being:

2x Skrull General (006 Supernova) 42 x 2 = 84
Rip It Up (Feat) 20
=2496 points and eighteen re-rolls.
At first it looked like Darren was going to win, as he was hitting my team hard. But then his dice rolls went crap on him. I manage to turn the tide by the end and won by about 100 victory point which is not much in a 2,500 points game.
Next week should be Civil War. Bring two 500 points teams. One team must have a Captain America and the other must have an Iron Man. You can not have the same charter in both teams. Marvel only.
Now for this week's DreamClix section. This week I am doing ideas for the AEU-09 AEU Enact (both forms) from Mobile Suit Gundam 00, an Attack Buggy horde token from the Gundam shows, Jun the Swan from Gatchaman (also known as G-Force and Battle of the Plants) and the Gatchaman team ability. But first I have designs of the Supporter of the Straw Hats feat card from One Piece, Robbit Moe from Dragon Ball, AGE-1 Gundam AGE-1 Normal from Mobile Suit Gundam AGE, Akamaru from Naruto and the Ninja team ability (replaces the Naruto one).
Morph(Enact): Give AEU-09 AEU Enact a move action that deals no pushing damage. After the action resolves, replace it with any character with this trait on the same click number. Existing action tokens and action tokens for the action are applied to the replacement.
They should have about four clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 8, Attack 9, Defence 16, Damage 2 and Range 6 with one target. Their team ability should be the Mobile Suit one and their keywords should be AEU and Katharon.
Next is the fighter mode for the AEU-09 AEU Enact. Theyshould have the "Morph(Enact)", Running Shot and Energy Explosion. They should have about four clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 14, Attack 8, Defence 17, Damage 2 and Range 6 with two targets. Their team ability should be the Mobile Suit one and their keywords should be AEU, Katharon and Vehicle. The next Gundam 00 idea should be Patrick Colasour.
Next is an Attack Buggy horde token from the Gundam shows. Throughout Gundam small combat vehicles with missile pods have been seen on the battle, normally only the first couple of episodes. They should have a special called "Missile Spray".
Missile Spray: Attack Buggy can use Energy Explosion and can target up to S targets with it.
They should have combat values of Speed 6, Attack 8, Defence 14, Damage 1, Range 7 with one target and M (maximum stack) 3. The next Gundam AGE idea should be the RGE-B790 Genoace.
Next is the Gatchaman team ability: Characters using the Gatchaman team ability treat hindering terrain as clear terrain for movement and line of fire purposes..
The next Other section idea should be Stocking Anarchy from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt (I know I said this last week).
Lastly is the DreamClix Dial Designs page update news. On Sunday there was an update to the DreamClix Dial Designs page, which started up the Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 section for this round of updates. There were no new dials in this update, but there were pictured team abilities which are shown below. Also on Thursday there was another update to the page, which started up the Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 section for this round of updates. There were two new dials in this update which are shown below. There should be an update on Sunday that will be the Capcom updates. A not for the Capcom stuff, as there is a new Street Fighter set coming I will not be doing any Street Fighter characters until a list of characters for it is out.
Well that is it for this week. Until next time, Mecha Up.

|Sanji after the time skip|
This Monday morning I managed to get motivated enough to leave on time to catch the bus to work. Yes, no need to wash money on a taxi to get into work when I have a bus pass. On the way to work I received an e-mail from Play.com. Starting today there is a buy one get on free sell on Disney DVDs and Blu-Rays. Danm it! The gift I brought my mum was a Disney Blu-Ray, if only I wanted one extra day. I worked from 9:50AM to 2PM. Work was very quiet. After work I popped to Hobbycraft to see if they had any Flames of War infantry that I can use as in Gruntz 15mm as Flames of War is a 15mm game. Sadly I forgot they were getting rid of their Flames of War stuff. They only had an Artillery box set left the was about £20. As I was not looking to spend that much, I decided to not get it. However I did pick up a special scale ruler to check if things fit the scale and for any model making in the future. There use a phone called from my dad at about 10:30PM. There had just been another armed rubbery at his store. Crap. So he had to go off to work to deal with it.
Watched: Episode 22 of Mobile Suit Gundam AGE.
Listened: Episodes 27 and 28 of Gundamn!@MAHQ.
On Tuesday morning before work I finished off and posted last week's Neoscream's Life post. I worked from 9:50AM to 3PM. I phoned home to see my dad was home from work for a left as today was ment to be his day off work and he only went in at the morning due to the rubbery. However it was my mum who answered. She was off sick due to a nasty tummy bug. Dad was not home yet so I had to get a bus home, but as the doctor told my mum she could only have liquids for the next three days, so she wanted me to pick up some chicken soup and chocolate milk. I first tried the M&S Express at the train station, but the only Chicken soup they had was very chunky. So I had to go to Sainsbury's. When I got home my mum phoned my phone and he sad he would be doing closing as the closing staff will not be coming in today.
Watched: Episode 4 of Let’s Play Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Listened: Episodes 29 and 30 of Gundamn!@MAHQ.
Watched: WWE Afterburn (a recap of last week’s WWE Smackdown).
Listened: Episode 31 of Gundamn!@MAHQ.
I worked from Thursday I worked from 12PM to 3:20PM. I checked with Darren H if coffee was still happening on Saturday as there was no Richard this week again. As he needs to get a mother's day gift, he would be at the Shopping Center anyway, so coffee was still on for the two of us. When I got home the Blu-Ray I ordered for my mum had arrived. As my mum was off sick for the rest of the week I decided to give her the Blu-Ray now as she was saying she had nothing to watch (I realised later she still have all eight Harry Potter film to re-watch). It was Lady and the Tramp, a classic Disney film with bleeping Siamese cats. Like normal in the evening I went to HeroClix.
Watched: Lady and the Tramp and this week’s episode of Gadget Geeks.
Listened: Special 2 of Gundamn!@MAHQ. 3
Watched: The unaired pilot of Sherlock and this week’s episode of WWE Raw.
Listened: Episode 32 of Gundamn!@MAHQ.
On Saturday I had coffee with Darren and a little wounder around the Shopping Center. We popped into Waterstones, HMV, Game and Clintons. I worked from 12PM to 4:30PM. After that not much happened to blog about. But I did post the first opening to GaoGaiGar.
Watched: The Qualifiers for the 2012 Australian F1 Grand Prix and episodes 1 and 2 of GaoGaiGar.
Listened: Episodes 33 and 34 of Gundamn!@MAHQ.
Sunday was a day off work. I did an update to the DreamClix Dial Designs page and posted the Cosmic Cosplay post. Me and my mum were planing on going to the Shopping Center at first as she needed some new underwear, but she then decided to by them online so we never went. In the evening I posted the second opening to GaoGaiGar and finally gotten around to trying one of the two Xbox 360 games Roxy lent me back during Christmas, Vanquish. From what I played of the game, the graphics were great and the storyline even tho it was a little cheesy it was still very good. But being a first person shooter I have problems with it due my lack of coordination and multitasking. The AR mode was a pain to use with my coordination. To activate it you need to do an evade action so you cannot roughly aim the gun before entering AR mode and then by time I switch my fingers the to aim and aim the gun at the target the suit overheats. I might try playing a bit more but it is a game I would not spend money on. Please note I am not saying the game play is crap, I am just saying my Dyspraxia gets in the way with the game. I prefer auto targeting than manual.
Watched: Episodes 3 to 7 of GaoGaiGar, episode 6 of series two of Mobile Suit Gundam 00, episode 5 of Let’s Play Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the 2012 Australian F1 Grand Prix, episode 8 of Mobile Suit Victory Gundam and this week’s episode of WWE Smackdown.
Listened: Special 3 of Gundamn!@MAHQ.

|Zerk and Kandie in "Safehouse"|

His laptop had broken down so he could not play it. He will be contacting people later.
Now for the last section of the post, the DreamClix Section. This week I am doing ideas for Blocky from CosmicBreak and a cosplay card of the deviant Freckle. But first here is a design for Freya from Chobits and the Persocom team ability.
Short Blocks: Adjacent friendly characters ignores Blocky for line of sight.
Swing Punch: When Blocky makes a close combat attack, he gains a +2 to his Attack Combat value.
They should have about four clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 6, Attack 8, Defence 15, Damage 2 and Range 4 with one target. Their team ability should be the LND one and they should the the keywords Chaos, Unions and Robot. The next CosmicBreak idea should be Ivis.
Lastly is a cosplay card idea of the deviant Freckle. She should follow the standard format of most of the deviants. Her special should be:
Give this character a power action, deal one click of unavailable damage to an adjacent friendly character.
Her Cosplay list is Scanty Demon, Haruhi Suzimiya, Cortana, Lucy, Kasumi, Aerith and Emma Frost.
Until next time, Mecha Up.
