Check out this week’s new releases at Jupiter Games!
Legend of the Five Rings Living Card Game Core Set
Welcome to the realm of Rokugan: a land of samurai and mystics, mad dragons, and divine beings! Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game is a Living Card Game set in the original setting for the Legend of the Five Rings collectible card game. To play a Living Card Game, players create individual decks of cards from a base game with a fixed set of cards; they can then add supplemental card packs to this game world, with each pack also having a fixed set of cards, in order to vary their game experience. When you do choose to initiate a conflict, you face an array of strategic options and choices. You must choose which characters will participate in the conflict, while carefully ensuring you have enough characters left to defend against your opponent because undefended provinces are easily broken and you’ll lose honor for failing to defend your lands. Finally, you must determine the type and ring used for the conflict. Every conflict must be either military or political, which corresponds to the military and political skills of your characters—only the skill that matches your chosen conflict type is used for this conflict. Along with the type of conflict, you’ll select one of the five rings: Air, Earth, Fire, Water, or Void. As new conflicts erupt across Rokugan, you’ll need to decide which clan has won your loyalty for either the Crab clan, Crane clan, Dragon clan, Lion clan, Phoenix clan, Scorpion clan or Unicorn Clan.
Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Deck Building Game

Nauseous Rotbone, the Plague Surgeon
This kit contains the components necessary to assemble Nauseous Rotbone, a Death Guard Plague Surgeon. He carries a bolt pistol and balesword, but where the real fun lies is in the various corrupted medical instruments he carries – Narthecium-like instruments containing horrific plagues are all over his armor, with an ancient, rusted reductor perfect for stealing gene-seeds on his right arm
Scribbus Wretch, the Tallyman
This kit contains the parts necessary to assemble Scribbus Wretch, a Death Guard Tallyman. He is a particularly unpleasant model, even for Death Guard, with a morbid focus on gleefully counting and cataloguing misfortune – he carries a massive ream of paper on a clipboard in the crook of his left arm, with a bone stylus in his right adding to his tallies. A strange apparatus hangs from his back, ending in a tentacle that grasps an abacus – its beads, upon closer inspection, reveal themselves as skulls.
This kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Foetid Bloat-drone. A huge, intimidating amalgamation of machine and rotting meat, the front of the model is dominated by a carapace which can be assembled as 1 of 3 options – one featuring a Nurgle symbol picked out in skulls, one featuring the symbol carved into the carapace, and one featuring a hideous toothed maw covered in pustules, tentacles and hoses dangling from within.
This kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Plagueburst Crawler. An extremely front-heavy tracked dozer brimming with horrible weaponry, it is covered in thick armor pitted and rusting with corrosion and decay. A standout feature is the huge, spiked dozer blade, with a symbol of Nurgle proudly displayed, picked out in skulls.
