    I’m *still* working on my electronic gaming system and have completed a “battle royale” type game. And it taught me that I actually prefer RPG-type games. So I’m making a few of those now. And my wife came up with the idea of a “rolling dungeon” type game. So suddenly, after 30+ years of being a sci-fi cyberpunk fan, I’ve suddenly noticed fantasy miniatures.

    And this month, Crippled God Foundry has just previewed their March release which looks beautiful (it might help that I recently re-read Terry Pratchett’s Lords and Ladies, so elves were probably uppermost in my mind when I saw this).

    There are some really nice minis in here with a definite LOTR feel to them too (the Ent being a major one).

    I’ve ditched a couple of my usual cyberpunk patreons this month. Cyber Forge have been pretty “meh” a couple of times and there was nothing really there that grabbed my interest this month. Normally I “play by the rules” and support creators, rather than just pick and choose who I’m going to “buy minis from” each month. But I reckon, with about 7,000 supporters, Cyber Forge are going to be alright without my continued early-bird pledge!

    I also dropped Papsikels, whom I’m supported from his very early days. Again, his supporters have gone from 30 or so (when I joined) to around 700 so I don’t think he’ll miss me too badly. A mix of far too many inappropriate busty near-nude female models and a lot of plagiarising existing IP (Cyberpunk 2077, Judge Dredd, TMNT and now proposals to “borrow” from the Marvel universe) is neither what I joined for, nor something I wish to encourage or support; for me Patreon is about supporting artists, creating their own works, not getting proxies for existing minis on the cheap!

    All of this means, I’ve started looking at other creators, with a view to supporting a couple more – and not all of them sci-fi/cyberpunk related either! I’ve even started thinking that maybe fantasy isn’t off-limits….

    I stumbled across the mega-release from OnePageRules this month. There are lots of dwarves, in all kinds of flavours (sci-fi, fantasy, sheilds, helmets etc) to keep @brennon happy. And a whole load of “battle sisters” for anyone wanting to bring a feminine touch to the 41st Millenium.

    It’s nice to see sci-fi female characters that *aren’t* metal-bikini-clad porn-star lookalikes for a change!

    There’s also a honking great dragon, a massive demon and a couple of other giants that I don’t even know how to describe. Here’s a photo:

    Anvil Digital Forge appear to have gone all in on their idea of monthly modular miniatures. This month it’s desert nomads. Though many of their pieces from previous months can be interchanged easily, to create all kinds of cool combinations.

    Even if you’re not such a fan of the baggy MC-Hammer-pants, the heads and bodies will probably mix well with previous months releases, to create even more variety. Plus there’s a cool jet bike with loads of optional parts that you can have as a single-seater, twin-seater (pillion passenger) or even join with another to create a twin-pod racer.

    I did it. I pulled the trigger and “went fantasy” with this month’s Titan Forge release called “WildWood”.

    You get some pretty sweet modular knights (mounted and unmounted) and some scary animal-hooded pagan, um… scarecrow(?) and a dopey looking dragon:

    Then there’s an old wizard-y looking dude and a – what exactly is a paladin? Is it this young chap? Or is he just a cleric? Or maybe a young child with an oversized dictionary? Anyway – he looks like he means business, whoever he is.

    And then there are these really cool looking tents and a Spinal-Tap-alike Stonehenge for everybody to have a fight over.

    (while some of my descriptions may be a little whimsical – due to my utter ignorance of all things fantasy – I’m actually pretty fired up about quite a few of these minis and can’t wait to get them onto the painting table!)

    So I’ve dipped my toe in the fantasy waters this month, but I’ve not completely given up on cyberpunk. It’s a few days late arriving, but this month’s release from Unit9 looks pretty cool. No less than ten great-looking character models this month (and not a generic “law enforcer” or “not-a-space-marine” in sight!)

    We all know @brennon loves his anthropomorphic animal characters, so he should be delighted with the March release from Duncan Shadow on Patreon this month. Raccoons and Badgers anyone?

    Art of Mike is one of those sci-fi Patreons that can put out some really cool stuff one month, then go missing for a while, then drop some rather “meh” looking characters from an archive just to make up the numbers, then come back a month later with some really cool stuff. This month he’s produced some rather splendid looking female sci-fi characters.

    I dropped Papsikels this month partly because his female characters were tending more towards his earlier work – the stuff of teenage wet dreams with rather too much anatomical detail that is really necessary in a 28mm miniatures – and there seems to be an over-reliance on Leia-in-a-metal-bikini look for female minis, in general. So it makes a change to see some women who at least have their drawers on!

    Some really nice KS there. I’m so far away from being able to afford a 3d printer, still nice to be able to see what will be available in a few months in the online stores

    A few of you guys have shown an interest in historical Romans in recent weeks and months. Epic Miniatures have a bumper release lined up for next month. According to Epic Miniatures, they have around ~80 miniatures planned for release this April, including a massive arena (amphitheatre?)

    From various forum posts and the odd wander into Discord, I noticed that a few members like their Monty Python references. That being the case, you’re going to love this month’s release from Highlands Miniatures: it’s Graham Chapman and his “patsy”.
