Gaming News from Neoscream: 24th June 2016

Welcome to the “Gaming News from Neoscream” post and its my Birthday. 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, last week saw the release of the Osomatsu's booster set in Japanese. Also today will see the release of the Disgaea Trial Deck, Booster set and Meister Set in English.
With Cardfight Vanguard, last week saw the release of G Booster Set 7 "Glorious Bravery of Radiant Sword" in English. Also today will see the release of the third G Clan Booster "Blessing of Divas" in Japanese.
Also Luck and Logic is finally out in English this week with the release of the two Trial Decks "Brave Logic" and "Rinne Logic", and the booster set BT01 "Growth and Genesis".

Next is the HeroClix news. The last two weeks we got previews of: Radioactive Man, Songbird, Atlas, Jack O' Lantern, Luke Cage, Spider-Woman and Spider-Mam from Marvel Civil War (not to be confused with Marvel Captain America Civil War).

Now for the Cool Mini or Not news. The Massive Darkness KickStar is still going Strong.

The Stretch Goals that are still going as I post this are: The Hero Silence the Thief at $1,930k.

Next is the Kingdom Death news. On Friday night/Saturday morning this was a major store update. New figures were add which were the Pariah, the Great Game Hunter Doctors (male and female versions), the Druid (which I brought), the Great Game Hunter Noble, the Nightmare Ram Armour Pin-up (which reveals that there will be a armour set for the first ever non KickStarter expansion for Kingdom Death Monster, the Nightmare Ram) and a 54mm version of the Dragon Sacrifice Pin-up. They also got a restock of the Satan Twins, the Warrior of the Sun Pin-up, the Grand Mother and the Lantern Armour kit.
As I post this they currently have in stock in the store: The Pariah, Great Game Hunter Doctors (both male and female versions), the Druid, the Great Game Hunter Noble, the Nightmare Ram Armour Pin-up; the Satan Twins, the Warrior of the Sun Pin-up, the Lantern Armour kit, the Pinup Storm Armour, Stone Face Base Inserts, the Adult Sunstalker and the Pinups of Death Hard Plastic Collection.
Also there WILL be a reprint of the sold out game, Kingdom Death Monster. That is all that they will reveal.

Now for the Frostgrave news. I forgot to post this in the last post (two weeks ago) and I only remember at the last moment. The Nickstarter (or Gnickstarter which they are calling it) had started for their "Into The Breeding Pits". A Gnickstarter is a North Star and Osprey Games pre-order program offering you deals on their new products. Basically it is a KickStarter, but the turn out is faster as the products are already in production. Their are six levels to back/pre-order at. Level One is "Pit Slave" and in it you get a copy of the "Into The Breeding Pits" book and a Wizard Sheet. Level Two is "Pit Survivor" and in it you get everything in Level One, the plastic Gnolls boxset and all Spend Goals. Level Three is "Pit Warrior" and in it you get everything in Level Two and four packs of the new metal Gnolls figures. Level Four is "Pit Chief" and in it you get everything in Level Three, the three new Wizard packs, the new Specialist Soldier pack and the Barbarian Chief figure for the next book "Forgotten Pacts". Level Five is "Pit Lord" and in it you get everything in Level Four, the Frostgrave Rulebook, the "Thaw of the Lich Lord" book, the Soldiers plastic box set, the Cultists plastic box set, the Lich Lord figureand the Gnoll Chieftain figure. Lastly Level Six is "Pit Master" which includes the whole Frostgrave range.
Since it started they managed to unlock the following Spend Goals that will be added to Level Two and above: A Hyena; three Giant Rats; a Violent Fungi; and a wallpaper for participants computers.
The Spend Goals that are still going as I post this are: A second Violent Fungi and a second wallpaper at £28k.
I backed this at Level Two.

Lastly some Transformers Earth Wars news. Last week they have added both Huffer and Bombshell to the game and then this week saw Longhaul and Alpha Bravo added to the game as well as some updates. Also yesterday they started their first event, "More Than Meets The Eye".

For rules for Guardians of Tyr tournaments and leagues as well as information on pre booking your place in tournament. Pre booking is highly recommended so they know how many people are coming. So please go to their website which there is a link to it under my links section which are located on the right hand side of this blog.

York House has a £3 on the day gaming fee (unless you are a child or unemployed where it is £1) and a £5 fee for a year’s membership. However the first day is free and they normally only take the yearly membership fee at the start of the year. The hall officially opens at 7PM for us gamers, but normally people start arriving about fifteen minutes early to grab tables.


Until next time, enjoy life.
