Gaming News from Neoscream: 29th August 2014

Welcome to “Gaming News from Neoscream”. This is my weekly gaming news post for miniature games, RPGs, some card games and computer games. Sorry for any rush in this post and a lack of the "Painting and Converting" section. I am super tired from a busy week and was planning on working on this post slowly all day today as today was meant to be my day off (so I did not ever got up early to post it ever), but I got BEEPing called into work.



“Gaming News”

Stretch Goal that was still going when I posted this post were: Resin Legendary versions of Hratth, Ibrahim, Ally McSween and Venetia Berisassor will be added as add-on at $640k.
This KickStarter will be ending on Sunday, so let us see what can be unlocked between now and then.

Next is the Battle System news. Their Fantasy Dungeon KickStarter has finally started. The Stretch Goals that they managed to unlock since starting was: The set was funded; three Walls, a Doorway, a Door, two Treasure Chests, three Barrels, a Throne, a Bookcase, a Tomb, a Table, two Torches and two different Stairs were added to the Dungeon pledge level, The Mines of Minerva add-on set; and The Mines of Minerva Extended add-on set.
Stretch Goal that was still going when I posted this post were: Six square long Walkway, a four square long Walkway and two sets of two different Balustrades will be added to the Dungeon pledge level at £81k; a Tomb, a Table, two Torches and a Barrel will be added to the Dungeon pledge level at £87k; and a Star Gate Dimension Gate add-on set at an unknown amount.

Now for the Crooked Dice Games news. I have seen the September releases. Here is a hint: “If there's something strange, in your neighbourhood. Who ya gonna call?” Hopefully I will remember to add a picture.

Next is the Stonehaven Miniatures news. They have started the last night the Half-Orc Adventurers KickStarter. Over the brief time it has been running they have: Funded the project and unlocked two new adventures Tengu Harrier and Hobgoblin Archer. They are currently no Stretch Goal when I rushed this post out. I would talk more about it, however thanks to work I do not have the time to write it.

Half-Orc Adventurers
Now for the Ninja Division news. Robotech RPG Tactics has begun shipping, however as they only have one of their three containers in at the moment and the other two have not left China as I post this, this will be a long wait.

Next is the Dust: Operation Babylon news. The pledge manager should be being sent out to backers on Monday.

Lastly for a KickStarter I backed at the last moment, Demigods Rising. This has been one of the two KickStarters Beast of War has been promoting lately, but one I have been forgetting about posting on this site. I would love to talk more about it, however thanks to BEEPing work, I do not have the time to write it.

“Painting and Converting”

Due to a busy week and work calling me in on my day off (today) I have not got the time to take any photos, so I have moved this section to the “Gaming with Neoscream” post for this week. Sorry blame BK.

  

Until next time, Keep Rolling.
