Gaming News from Neoscream: 3rd 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, Friday next week will see the release of "To LOVE る - Trouble - Darkness 2nd Volume 2" booster set in Japanese.
Also with Cardfight Vanguard, Friday next week will see the release of the G Start Deck One: Odyssey of the Interspatial Dragon in English.

Next is the HeroClix news. This week we got previews of: Two versions of Donatello from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Now for the Mantic news. The KickStarter for their The Walking Dead All Out War has finished. They made $685,853 with 3,737 backers. Since last week’s post they have managed to unlock: The characters Michonne (with her Walkers), Eugene Coonly and Harold were added to the Prison expansion; Walker Julie, Walker Shane, twelve equipment cards, the KickStarter exclusive Bag of Guns 3D token, a Walker and six alternate character cards was added to the main pledge level; two alternate character cards were added to the Prison expansion; the Woodbury expansion as an add-on; the characters Curtis, Alice and One-Handed Rick was added to the Woodbury expansion; and the KickStarter exclusive character Negan was added to the main pledge level.
With Warpath this week we got renders of the GCPS Mule and news that there will be a Plague variant.

Next is 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 KickStarter exclusive Ironback Soitter, a Boss Spear Bog Trog and two Feralgeists was added to both the Deluxe and Premium pledge levels.
As I post this the stretch goals that are still going were: Four more Small Tatzylwurms will be added to all pledge levels at $250k; a Boss Swamp Gobber will be added to both the Deluxe and Premium pledge levels at $262k; four more Club Gatormen and a KickStarter exclusive mission will be added to all pledge levels at $245k; a Boss Small Tatzylurm will be added to both the Deluxe and Premium pledge levels at $287k; six Tomahawk Gatormen will be added to both the Deluxe and Premium pledge levels at $300k; a Boss Gatorman Bokor will be added to both the Deluxe and Premium pledge levels at $312k; two more Gatormen Bokor will be added to all pledge levels at $325k; ever a KickStarter exclusive Blackhide Wrastler or a KickStarter exclusive Swamp Horror (voted by backers) will be added to both Deluxe and Premium pledge levels at $350k.

Lastly there is the Cool Mini or Not news. Somehow I miss most of the run of their KickStarter for the dungeon crawler spin off from Arcadia Quest called "Masmorra: Dungeon of Arcadia". There is only really one pledge level which is called Dungeoneer.
Since it started, they managed to unlock: The game; a five hero Adventurers set as an add-on; Monsters Dice Set as an added-on; the KickStarter exclusive Hero Luke the Lucky in support of "Watch it Played!" as an add-on; ten KickStarter exclusive plastic Treasure Chest Pack as an add-on; the KickStarter exclusive heroes Baruk, Thereon, Lotus, Tosh, Azure, Blossom, Toghor, Travis, Raffi and Prince Grenouille; five KickStarter exclusive plastic Wound tokens; thirty plastic Coins; five plastic XP tokens; three Curse Tiles; two extra Pet dice; five plastic Treasure chests; two KickStarter exclusive Undead Dice; sole/coop mode rules with thirty Treasure cards, twenty Evil cards, one plastic Time token and five Player Aids cards; two KickStarter exclusive Villains Dice; Arcadia Quest Hero Cards for all Promos Hero (the main game ones come with the cards already); and thirty Coloured Action Dice as an add-on.
As I post this the stretch goals that are still going are: Two KickStarter exclusive Infernal Dice at $620k.
The KickStarter will be ending next week so yet us see what can be unlocked. Oh and yes I am backing this (not just the £€$1 to follow it).
Also with Arcadia Quest Inferno the Pledge Manager is up and the five part of the making of Sarya.
