Gaming News from Neoscream: 18th December 2015

Welcome everybody to this week’s “Gaming News from Neoscream” post. This is my weekly gaming news post for miniature games, RPGs and some card games, as well as my miniatures painting and upcoming local events.



"Blog News"

Due to the possible lack of gaming news and possible busyness during to the Christmas and New Year period, I have decided to change my posting patten during this period. Instead of a post on Tuesdays and a post on Fridays, I will be doing a post on Fridays next week and a post ever on Friday or Saturday the following week. Next Friday will be a "Neoscream's Life" post that will covering Monday the 14th of December to the morning of Christmas day. The following week will be a New Year’s special "Gaming News from Neoscream". Then on Tuesday the 5th of January 2016, I will be doing a "Neoscream's Life" post that will cover the rest of Christmas day to the 3rd of January 2016 and it will also be a New Year’s special. After that things will be back to normal.



“Gaming News”

First off we have the Bushiroad news. With the Weiß Schwarz side, today sees the release of the "Love Live! Volume 2" Booster set, the "Love Live! Volume 2" Master set and the "Love Live!" Trial Deck featuring "festival idol in school" all in English (I did not know this was pushed back a week).
On the Cardfight Vanguard side, today sees the release of G Trial Deck 6 "Rallying Call of the Interspectral Dragon" and G Trial Deck 7 "Illusionist of the Crescent Moon" in English and "Fighter's Collection 2015 Winter" booster set in Japan.

Next is the Mechabrick news. Their new Indiegogo campaign is still going. This has unlocked so far: Nothing.
The stretch goals that are still going as I post this are: A Shield of Fire will be added to all XL pledge levels at $4k; a Golden Sword will be added to all XL pledge levels at $6k; a Neon Black Printed Shield will be added to all pledge levels at an revealed amount; and a Neon Black Print Mech will be added to all XL pledge levels at an revealed amount.

Now for the Modiphius news. Thanks to the Pledge Manager they have managed to unlock both the "Nebula of Mirrors" and "Hypercorps" supplements so far.

Next is the Zero Agents news. Sadly it looks like this will not be shipping any time soon as they have revealed that they are still working on sculpts. In fact Agent Candy is only 10% done.
