Gaming News from Neoscream: 17th July 2015

Welcome to the “Gaming News from Neoscream”. This is my weekly gaming news post for miniature games, RPGs, some card games, my painting and upcoming local events.

“Blog News”

There is no “Painting and Converting” section this week due to camera problems.

“Gaming News”

First off we have the HeroClix news. We got previews of: White Tiger and Captain America from Marvel Age of Ultron Event; and Agent Coulson, Agent May, Fitz and H.E.N.R.Y. from Marvel Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Fast Forces.

Next is the Cardfight Vanguard news. G Title Booster 1: Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- is now out in Japanese.

Now for the Mantic news. With Deadzone Infestation we got images of the Veerminators figures.
With DreadBall, backers of DreadBall Xtreme now have the PDFs for Season Five, Season Six, Xtreme Xpansion and DreadBall Challenge Cup.

Next is the Ninja Division news. News on the Super Dungeon Explore Forgotten King wave two. With US and Australia they have started shipping. With everyone else shipment should have begun.
With Ninja All-Stars, we got to see the production plastics for all the Shrine Ninjas and the Samurai Sentries.
With Robotech RPG Tactics this week we got a look at the convention exclusive Grell in Male Power Armour as well painted images of the convention exclusive Miriya's Super Valkyrie. The pledge manager for the convention exclusive stuff and new Earth Forces stuff has been extended to August.

Now for the Wyrd Games news. This Monday we got images of the new Story Encounter and Adventure box for Through the Breach and Malifaux, “Brotherhood of the Rat".

Next is the Guild Ball news. This week we got the look ar two more Season Two figures. These are Scalpel a captain for the Mortician’s team and Compound who is a big player who works for both the Alchemist and Engineer teams but is not Union.

Now for the Stonehaven Miniatures news. They have cancelled their new KickStarted, Stonehaven Peacekeeper’s Oath, but plan on restarting in later. This was because they plan on doing some changes to it.

Next is the Kingdom Death news. There is a limited time only pre-order promotion for the Kingdom Death Monster game. Pre-order by Sunday to get it for $275 instead of $400. Now by the send of it this this the only time you can pre-order the game and at a heavily cut down price. Yes this is an expensive game, but you get a LOT for it. The estimated dispatch is October 2015. Now will this be after or the same time as the KickStarters? I do not know, but I have updated the date to October for KickStarters just in case. With this we also got images of the box content and a final break down of the content of the box game. Click Here to preorder page to see more and to get this awesome thing.
Also there was a restock in the store. Sadly I did now about the restock until late night so I might have missed a couple of thing, but I did finally get the Thief figure. The stuff currently in stock as I post this are the Kingdom Death Monster re-order, Percival, both the male and female Apotheosis, Fighter, Thief, Ammo Slave, Savior, both the male and female Warrior of the Sun and the Pinups of Death Hard Plastic Collection.

Now for the Thunderbirds Co-operative Board Game news. A PDF of the rulebook is available to download now. It is not the true final version as they need to still do some spell/grammar checking and double checking things like working of rules before it goes to print. I have a feeling that is why we have it now.

Next is the Zero Agents news. A survey for the doubles in the Elite Operative box set is up. This is to decide which three of the seven sculpts will have a second figure in the set. The eight sculpt is only available to order separately.

Now for the Home Raiders news. We got previews of some of the figures from the new factions.

Next is the Mechabrick news. This week we got a look at the samples moulded T1 Mechabrick mech in a semi-translucent test plastic. It is looking great. Also they are now doing a robot endo-skeleton so that people can build their mechs without buying Lego Minifigs.
Oh and they have also added some more stuff to the starter set like the shield.

Lastly there is the Yashima: Legend of the Kami Master news. We have shipping news for wave one KickStarter stuff now. With the USA the Core games will be starting shipping to backers next week. It would have started shipping this week, but unfortunately there were delays with the trucking company. With the EU Wave, the core games is scheduled to arrive at their EU distributor on Monday. And with Australia shipping should have started.
