Gaming News from Neoscream: Boxing Day 2014

Welcome to “Gaming News from Neoscream”. This is my weekly gaming news post for miniature games, RPGs, some card games and computer games. I hope everybody had a Merry Christmas.

“Gaming News”

First off is the Privateer Press news. They have release a list of new releases for March which will be a quite month for them The releases will be Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Roleplaying Game Adventure Kit, the Warmachine All-in-One Army Box for Protectorate of Menoth, a redo of the Khador Unit Kossite Woodsmen, the Hordes All-in-One Army Box for Legion of Everblight; the Minion Gatorman Battle Engine Sacral Vault and issue 59 of No Quarter.
With Tactics new, they have now added a Warcaster and three Warjacks have been added the Mercenary. This has made it possible to use a pure Mercenary force in the game now.

Xmas Special Pinup Twilight Knight
Next is the new version Paranoia news. Playtest rules in PDF format is being sent out to backers at the right pledge levels.

Now for the Kingdom Death news. On Christmas Eve, they have added three new products to the store and restocked on three old productions on their web store. The new ones are Xmas Special Pinup Twilight Knight (unlimited stock until the end of the year), a set of Warlords (one Female, one Male) and Flower Witch (sold out). And the restock were Twilight Order Knight, Twilight Relic Knight and Deserter. The Xmas Special Pinup Twilight Knight comes with stuff to be used in Monster. It is a new piece of equipment called Axmas. I do plan on getting this.

The Retail version of Shark from Guild Ball
Next is the Guild Ball news. OK, I have been a bit bad with reporting about Guild Ball, but here is an update. They have posted CAD images of a couple of retail versions of Captains and a couple of the extra players that are not in the team sets. They have sculpted about 99% of the figures. However I have a strong feeling that they will not get everything done by January 2015.

Now for the Battle System news. They have revealed the Sci-Fi version of their Star Dimensional Gate from their Fantasy Dungeon KickStarter. I am so glad that I have ordered a set of them.

The Sci-Fi Dimensional Gate from Battle System
Next is the Mantic news. The pledge managers for both Kings of War Second Edition and Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King’s Quest should be up online in the start of the New Year. Also about two thirds of Deadzone wave three has been shipped.

Now for the Yashima: Legend of the Kami Master news. Most of the stuff for the main box set is in production, however the extra stuff are taking longer than planned. They might have to push the shipment date or slit the shipment into two waves.

Next is the OVA news. Sadly the book is being delayed by the printers. So they are taking the time to make some changes like some layout adjustments, additional examples, text tweaks, and updates to several characters.

Now for the HeroClix news. Well no real news, I just wanted to say that sadly this year WizKids have not done the twelve days of ClixMas. It was always a great thing to see up and coming HeroClix and Dice Masters products.
Oh, there is a Yu-Gi-Oh contest happening on there websate to win the whole of wave two of the HeroClix stuff, a ton of DVDs and a Blu-Ray. Sadly it it OWN open to people living in the USA.

Lastly for a bit of other gaming related news. If you had not checked the "KickStarter Dates" section last week, Bubblegum Crisis Ultimate Edition Blu-Ray Set had started shipping. On Monday of this week, I received my copy. Why do I have this under gaming while it is Anime based news? Because in comes with ta PDF copy of the old RPG version on the discs too.
