Gaming News from Neoscream: 11th September 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.



“Gaming News”

First off we have the HeroClix news. We got previews of: S.H.I.E.L.D. Elite Agent, S.H.I.E.L.D. Bodyguard, S.H.I.E.L.D. Paranormal Investigator, S.H.I.E.L.D. Cyborg and S.H.I.E.L.D. Infiltrator from Marvel Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D..

Now for the Mantic news. Mantic have be showing off a painted Enforcer Jetbike for Deadzone.
Wave one of King of War has just finish shipping. Dungeon Saga should now start shipping mid-October.

Next is the Bushiroad news. With Cardfight this week, they have revealed that on November the 13th they will be releasing two new G Trial Decks and a new G Booster set. The Trial Decks are “Howling Path of the Time-Illusion” (Gear Chronicle) and “Magician of the Crescent Moon” (Pale Moon). The new booster set will be called “The Dragon Fang that Glitters in the Moonlight” and it will cover Gear Chronicle, Pale Moon, Oracle Think Tank, Narukami, Link Joker and Clay Elemental.

Now for the Crooked Dice Games news. They have updated the beta rules for the second edition of 7TV.

Next is the Ninja Division news. With Robotech RPG Tactics there has been a major rules change. The Long Range Missile of the Standard Valkyries are being drops from Ammo 8 to Ammo 6 and the points cost for the upgrade has been reduced to reflect it.

Now for the Battle System news. The Post Apocalypse Terrain KickStarter Will be starting on the 18th of this month.

Next is the Stonehaven Miniatures news. They have started sculpting the Halfling Adventurers Miniatures now.

Now for the Cool Mini or Not news. This week they started a new KickStarter for a new board game called “The Others: 7 Sins”. It is a horror board game for two to five players. One player controls one of the 7 Deadly Sins, employing monstrous incarnations of these corruptive forces in an attempt to consume the world and bring about the apocalypse. The rest of the players cooperate as heroes of the F.A.I.T.H. organization who will attempt to fight back the invasion! There is just one Pledge Level at the moment (not including the early bird version) which is FAITH. This level will get you the The Others: 7 Sins core box, the Kickstarter Exclusive Leader Hero Calavera and all Stretch Goals that are not noted otherwise.
So far they have managed to unlocked: The game is funded; a KickStarter Exclusive Faith Dice Bag; new sculpts for Sloth and Pride Abominations which will replace two figures of each in all core box games; the KickStarter Exclusive Fixer Hero Adrian; new sculpts for Nun, Doctor and Hobo Acolytes which will replace two figures of each in all core box games; two new KickStarter Exclusive City Tiles which are the Bank and the Casino; a Soundtrack for Download; and the Fixer Hero Will.
As I post this the stretch goal that are still going are: The Greed Avatar, twelve Greed Cards and a Greed Board at $275k; six Greed Abominations (two sculpts first) and a Greed Controller at $300k; and a third sculpt for the Greed Abominations at $310k.
A part from the $1 to follow it I am not backing this KickStarter. I am not saying it is bad, just that is does not interest me and I have enough board games already.

Lastly there is the Modiphius news. There have meant to of started the Kickstarter for the Infinity RPG earlier this week, however they have not for some unknown reason.
