Gaming News from Neoscream: 18th March 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, today sees the release of "THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS" in the form of three Trial Decks, a Booster Set and a Meister Set all in English. Next Friday will see the release of Card game Shiyoko Ultimate Starter in Japanese.
Also with Cardfight Vanguard, today sees the release of the G Legend Deck 2: The Overlord blaze "Toshiki Kai" in Japanese. Next Friday will see the release of G Trial Deck 8 "Vampire Princess of the Nether Hour" and G Booster Set 6 "Transcension of Blade and Blossom" in English. This and G Booster Set 7 are the sets that I am currently looking forward to. Six has Nova Grapplers and Seven has Dimension Police. There is a Sneak Peek for G Booster Set 6 at Wargames Workshop MK. Sadly due to working I will not be able to go.

Next is the HeroClix news. This week we got previews of: Metalhead and Casey Jones from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Now for the Privateer Press news. Their Widower's Wood is still going on. As I post this they have managed to unlock since the lost post: A new reward level called Luxury which is basically Premium with a KickStarter exclusive table top dice tray; a Boss Swamp Gobber was added to all pledge levels apart from the Core Game one; a KickStarter exclusive Blackhide Wrastler was added to all pledge levels apart from the Core Game one; and four more Club Gatormen and a KickStarter exclusive mission was added to all pledge levels
As I post this the stretch goals that are still going were: A Boss Small Tatzylurm will be added to all pledge levels apart from the Core Game one at $287k; six Tomahawk Gatormen will be added to all pledge levels apart from the Core Game one at $300k; a Boss Gatorman Bokor will be added to all pledge levels apart from the Core Game one at $312k; two more Gatormen Bokor will be added to all pledge levels at $325k; three more KickStarter exclusive missions will be added to all pledge levels apart from the Core Game one at $337k; and a KickStarter exclusive Swamp Horror will be added to all pledge levels apart from the Core Game one at $350k.
The KickStarter will be ending on Sunday. Let us see what they can unlock between now and then.

Next is the Cryptozoic news. Next month they are returning to KickStarter to fund Ghostbusters The Board Game 2.

Now for the Kingdom Death news. For one week only, all the expansions for Kingdom Death Monster (apart from the Lantern Festival due to not being ready and the Spidicules most likely due to the problem with the legs) are all up on their web store for one week that ends on the 21st. I have managed to pick up all three Knights. I was planning on getting the Green Knight Armour set too however I learnt that you need to get two or three more of the other expansions to use it.
Afterwards the expansions will be release normally onto the store as a general release in a slow manner.

Lastly is the Modiphius news. With their Infinity RPG they are still working on the Wave one books, however from next week they will start shipping the miniatures if backers want to pay extra for the postage. On the belowKickStarter Dates" section I have pushed wave one to April, however I do doubt that it will ship by then.
With their Thunderbirds KickStarter, wave two will start shipping next week. People who added the RPG support (like me) will have to wait about week later as the RPG stuff will arrive at the warehousessome time next week.
