Gaming News from Neoscream: 18th September 2015

Warpath in coming
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: Winter Soldier 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.
The long awaited Warpath KickStarter should be starting this coming Monday I they have be showing off a tank from the Forge Fathers that they are working on for it, called the Firefight.

Next is the Battle System news. The Post Apocalypse Terrain KickStarter should be starting today.

Now for the Cool Mini or Not news. With their “The Others: 7 Sins” Kickstarter they have managed to unlocked since the last post: The Greed Avatar; twelve Greed Cards; a Greed Board; a Greed Controller; six Greed Abominations in three sculpts; six Corrupted Policeman Acolytes in three sculpts; the Kickstarter exclusive Sniper Hero Nichole; an Art Book add-on; two old town tiles (the ruins and the docks); a Lust Controller; twelve Lust Cards; a Lust Board; the Gamma Team expansion; six Lust Abominations in three sculpts; three Sin Dice; a dice pack add-on; and the Lust Avatar.
As I post this the stretch goal that are still going are: The Sniper Hero Polly at $530k; and a Kickstarter Exclusive new city tile the sports centre at $530k.

Next is the Modiphius news. They have finally started the KickStarter for the Infinity Role-play Game. This is a role-play game based in Corvus Belli’s Infinity miniatures game. There are several Pledge levels and I will not be listing them. However I have included a graphic from the KickStarter that goes over them after several Stretch Goals were made. I have gone for the "Print and PDF Master" level. This level original got you a Physical copy of the Core Book and PDF copy of all books.
Since starting on Wednesday they have managed to unlock: The Core Book was funded; everyone who gets a copy of the Core Book (PDF or Physical) will now get a PDF copy of the Player's Guide; all backers of Pledge levels for physical copies of the Core Book will get a free miniature of their choice from a six different miniatures; the number of artwork in the Core Book has been increased; the Gamesmaster Guide; the Shadow Affairs Campaign; digital wallpaper based around the RPG; Form Fillable Character Sheets; Several pre-made characters from the staff at Corvus Belli; an eight page Adventure made by the Corvus Belli team; the Nomad Faction Source Book; and a Spanish version of the Player's Guide and Character Sheets.
As I post this the stretch goal that are still going are: The Paradiso Geomorphic Tile set at £115k; the Paradiso Planet Source Book at £130k; and an extra eight more pages to the Adventure that the Corvus Belli team are making at the next two level up (special goals for things like sharing and favourites).
They have already revealed that there will be three waves. Wave one should be shipping in February 2016, wave two should be shipping in July 2016 and wave three should be shipping in October 2016. The Core Book, Player's Guide, dice and Minitures will be shipping in wave one. All the other Stretch Goals should be split among the three waves. I personally hope the Gamesmaster Guide will be part of wave one. However if the contents of your order is available, it will ship (so if you are only waiting on one extra book and it is finished in March you will not be waiting till July for the shipment). The shipping dates are a guide to when all of the books listed will be ready. 

Lastly there is the Wyrd Games news. This Monday we got a preview of a new Resurrectionists minion, the Night Terror.
