There is just a couple of days left for the KickStarter. Let us see what new stuff we can got between now and then.
We also got this week a new mission from the website called "Subway Cleanout".

Next is the Ninja Division news. Withy Super Dungeon Explore this week we got pre-views of the new Explore cards.

Now for the Interface Zero news. The physical rulebook arrived to their warehouse. They will be shipping to backs who just backed for the book this week as they our still waiting on things like dice to arrive. When the extras arrive they will be sending the rest.

Next is the Privateer Press news. We got a list of October release. These are: The Hordes expansion rulebook “Exigence”, the Trollblood Epic Cavalry Warlock Borka Vengeance of the Rimeshaws, the Circle Warlock Bradigus Thorle the Runecarver, a Legion Heavy Warbeast that can be built in Neraph or Seraph, the Skorne Unit Paingiver Beast Handlers, the Minion Gatorman Warlock Jaga-Jaga, the Death Charmer and the Hordes High Command Campaign Expansion “Castle of the Keys”.

Now for the Shadows of Brimstone news. There will be a limited pre-release of the core starters at Gem Com (BEEP BEEP BEEP). With the way shipment is going I have adjusted to Date for it below to September as they are saying that the first shipment will arrive late August and will take weeks to unpack sort and repack for backers.
We also got pre-views of the hard plastic figures and the PDF version of the main rulebook.

Next is the Journey: Wrath of Daemons news. This week we got a preview image of Koorogg, the Bull Demon King.

Now for the OVA news. The finished PDF version of the rulebook will available for backers on the 4th of August. Sadly there is still no word on when the physical copy will ship.

Lastly there is the Kingdom Death news. The web store has had a small restock. The stuff now in the store are: The 54mm Pinup Preacher, the White Speaker, the Pinups of Death set, the Pinup White Speaker, the 54mm Twilight Knight Pinup and the Naked Experiment of Death clearance deal (it will differently not come with cards now).
