Gaming News from Neoscream: 15th January 2016

Welcome everyone to the “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.

“Gaming News”

First off we have the Bushiroad news. With Weiß Schwarz, next Friday will see the release of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Trial Deck, Booster Set and Meister Set.

Next is the HeroClix news. This week we got previews of: Witch, Warlock, Jason Blood and Etrigan from DC World's Finest.

Now for the Ninja Division news. Shipping to backers for Ninja All-Stars should be or have started this/next week for everyone outside Asia (who have already shipped).

Next is the Modiphius news. With their Thunderbirds Co-operative Board Game KickStarters, the PDF rules for the last expansion that adds the Hood player is up. Their are just waiting for the rules for the expansions to finish painting and then hopefully they should be shipping to fulfilment centres soon.

Now for the Demigods news. Only the resin add-ons (or all the resins) have shipped for Evolution, by the look of things all the rules and game play stuff will ship with the original KickStarter stuff. Also the Demigod Deck will now be a KickStarter exclusive item as they found from game testing that the game is much better with a Demigod than with a Demigod Deck.

Lastly there is the Frostgrave news. The second PDF expansion is coming this coming Wednesday. It is called "Sellsword" and will add Captains to the game. By the sound of things they are a special type of Soldier you can get that gains experience and you only have one of. I cannot wait to get this.
