Gaming News from Neoscream: 6th November 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: Brainiac and Supergirl from DC Superman/Wonder Woman. Also they have revised the rules for size classes.

Now for the Wyrd Games news. This week's Monday Preview was a look at the renders for the upcoming Gremlin Rooster Riders. 

Next was the Cool Mini or Not news. With Zombicide they have started pre-orders for their Ultimate Survivors #2. This is not Ultimate versions of the Season Two Survivor. Instead they are ultimate of eight of the Season One KickStarter Exclusive figures. Sadly this is an online exclusive sale that is open until November 15th. They should be produce enough quantity to satisfy the orders, plus a little extra for promotions and conventions. This means that Ultimate Survivors #2 will not be sold at retail, and it is a limited edition sadly. Ultimate Survivors #2 is priced at $40, but if you backed Zombicide Season one, two, three or Black Plague, you will get a $10 discount per box.

Now for the Kingdom Death news. On late Friday night/early Saturday morning, there was a major update to their online store for Halloween. They added the Frogdog monster, six different Disciple of the Witch and the Halloween Twilight Knightg Pin-Up which now comes with a Gear card for Kingdom Death Monster. Sadly due to demand the web store now only has both the male and female versions of the Apotheosis and the sixth Disciple of the Witch which was encored. Even the Pin-Ups of Death has sold out.

Next is the Crooked Dice Games news. To celebrate the launch of the second edition of 7TV, they have created a free Scooby Doo Programme Guide for it.

Lastly there is the Hawk Wargame news. They have started a KickStarter for a new space base spin off game from their Dropzone Commander universe, called Dropfleet Commander. The game was designed by Andy Chambers, the design behind Games Workshop Battlefleet Gothic.  They have managed to unlock since start: Game was funded; Race Pins as an add-on; Hostile Map Set as an add-on; Faction dice as add-ons; the Shaltari Plastic Starter Fleet as an add-on; Acrylic Tokens as an add-on; one free Scourge Frigate Sprue that makes up four Frigates was added to the Captain level pledge and above; Alien Map Set add-on; a second Art Print as an add-on; one free UCM Frigate Sprue that makes up four Frigates was added to the Captain level pledge and above; the PHR Plastic Starter Fleet as an add-on; a third Art Print as an add-on; Nocturnal Map Set as an add-on; a Kickstarter Exclusive Paper Radar Map as an add-on and was added to the Captain level pledge and above; Unlocked: one free Scourge Cruiser Sprue that makes up one cruiser was added to all level pledges; one free UMC Cruiser Sprue that makes up one cruiser was added to all level pledges; a metal UCM Credit was added to all pledge levels; a Launch Assets Pack as an add-on; a Dropfleet Commander Bases Pack as an add-on; and KickStarter Exclusive Battlecruisers for Scourge, Shaltari and PHR as add-ons.

For rules for Guardians of Tyr tournaments and leagues as well as information on pre booking your place in tournament. Pre booking is highly recommended so they know how many people are coming. So please go to their website which there is a link to it under my links section which are located on the right hand side of this blog.

However the first day is free and they only take yearly membership fee at the start of the year. The hall officially opens at 7PM, but normally people start arrived 15 to 20 minutes early.



“Painting and Converting”

For this post I have for you all are Wind from Demi Gods and Cubone from Pokémon.


Cubone was an old Burger King kid's toy keyring of mine that got heavily battered from use as a keyring for many year's. I have fixed Cubone up, removed the keyring side and gave Cubone a new paint job. Below is a picture of what Cubone originally would have looked like.


On Tuesday's post I should have for you all my Loot Crate Mini Munny figure and Honour from Guild Ball.



Until next time, hope for a better tomorrow.
