Gaming News from Neoscream: 29th 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 Puyo Puyo Pack Trial Deck in Japanese.
Also with Cardfight Vanguard, today see the release of G Booster Set 5 "Moonlit Dragonfang" in English.
And in Japan Bushiroad have released today a new card game called "Luck and Logic". The releases for the game are two trial decks (SD01"Brave Logic" and SD02 "Rinne Logic") and the booster set BT01 "Growth and Genesis". This is linked with the new anime I have been watching and they are some cross promotional stuff with Cardfight Vanguard. Both the Trial decks have a Cardfight Vanguard card lossy based on a character (not necessarily titled character). Sadly they are not from any of the clans I collect. The game is meant to be released in English during this summer.

Next is the HeroClix news. This week we got previews of: Desaad, four different versions of Batman and four different versions of Superman from DC World's Finest.

Now for the Modiphius news. With the Infinity RPG they have released a updated character sheet for the game.

Next is the Cool Mini or Not news. With Arcadia Quest they continued with the walk through of the Sculpting of Sarya. This time they talk about and showed off her "Mud Sample".

Now for the Mantic news. The Walking Dead: All Out War Miniatures Game is launching on Kickstarter on February the 1st. It is down to closes on February the 29th and wave one should be shipping is in August 2016. I will following this KickStarter, however I will most likely not be backing it past £/$1 as I am not after the game.
With Warpath we got images of physical model for the GCPS infantry and they are looking quite nice.

Next is the Stonehaven Miniatures news. They have posted images of more greens from the Halfling Adventurers KickStarter. Also backers can still e-mail their orders.
