Gaming News from Neoscream: 22nd 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”

Next is the HeroClix news. This week we got previews of: Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Ragman and two versions of Poison Ivy from DC World's Finest.

Now for the Ninja Division news. World wide shipping of Ninja All-Stars has started and there has been reported that backers have started to receive them outside of Asia.

Next is the Modiphius news. First off is their Infinity RPG. They have released a preview of the Lifepath from the core rulebook for backers only.
With their Thunderbirds Co-operative Board Game KickStarters, wave two should now start shipping mid to late February in Australia, New Zealand and Asia. While America, Canada and Europe should start shipping early to mid March.

Now for the Guild Ball news. They have preorders of Corsair from the Fisherman's Guild and Esters from the Brewer's Guild are up on their website. They are due out on next Friday.

Next is the Frostgrave news. The second PDF expansion, "Sellsword" is out now. It a new type of Soldier that gains experience called a  Captains to the game as well as three new Scenarios.

Now for the Shadows of Brimstone news. They are still working on getting wave 1.5 out and it should now start shipping to backers sometime in February. However this does mean that wave two has be delayed by several months as it was meant to ship it February. Their are sone good new. They have revealed that all new hero figures will be released in resin due to quality issues.

Next is the Cool Mini or Not news. With The Others: 7 Sins, due to a bit of a delay the shipping date has been pushed back a month. However this means that the Pledge Manager has been extended until February 1st.
With Arcadia Quest, we got an image of the finished artwork for the "Hell of a Box" box and the finished Guild Tokens for the new guilds from Inferno. They have also start a journey into Sculpting the hero Sarya as she was a character that they did not have sculpted. This week’s post talked about scale.

Now for the Mantic news. First off Deadzone Infestation news. Shipping has been delayed until March due to production delays and Chinese New Year. However they did show off a ton of finished stuff. These were: The hard plastic pieces for the Enforcer Jetbikes, Recon Unit N7-117, The Piper, Rat Swarms, the Night Terror, a Progenitor with Sniper Rifle, the Brood Mother, Blaine on a Jetbike, a Plague Aberration, the Veer-myn Heavy Chem Laser, the Veer-myn Heavy Chem Thrower, the craw for them and a hard plastic sprue of the Forge Father Steel Warriors.
With Warpath we got a reminder that the Pledge Manager ends on February the 29th. We also got images of the Plague Bursters and CAD images of the GCPS Hornet Dropship.

Next is the Exploding Kittens news. After the MASSIVE success of the card game on KickStarter, they have released it as an app game. Sadly it is only available from iTunes.

Now for some Kingdom Death news. There has been some MAJOR delays over the last 90 day due to roughly fifty-five e-mails a day about missing parts or missing orders for three months. This has meant that a lot of the Black Friday stuff have not shipped (mine being one of them), that most (or none) of the Christmas order have not shipped yet and that their was no January sales or new stuff on the web store. By the sound of it the major problem is that they are too many fouls reports and some manufacturer problems too. Also the delays do not help as a lot of the current one most be people complained about their orders not arriving yet.

Lastly the finalists of the Beasts of War 2015 Gaming Awards are up so please go and vote for your favourites.
