It's safe to say that when it comes to Westfalia Miniatures I'm a bit of a fan, whether it's halfling knight on a goat or an accordion-playing bard sitting on a mimic the miniatures have always been top quality and full of whimsy.

One Piece Of Gold May Not Be Enough // Westfalia Miniatures

If I did have a criticism it would be that in the past getting your hands on them could be difficult at times. Step forward Westfalia and the One Piece of Gold Patreon, and no longer do you have to wait on stock and shipping but can instead print them at home.

The plan for the Patreon is that for a single shiny nugget a month (or a dollar plus tax) you can get your hands on a selection of figures, this first month is a jailbreak gone very wrong. You may have seen the guards before when we looked at the plans Westfalia had for the coming few months, they are joined by a loot carrying rogue and a savage werewolf along with the front of a hobbit hole that you can use to start building your village with.

Rather than trying to fill a massive bundle of miniatures every month Kawe has decided to make a handful of models available that it's possible to print and paint within a few weeks. Over three or four months they build up into mini themed campaigns and unsurprisingly the first campaign features halflings along with a delightful backstory here's a snippet to whet your appetite.

"Seppi Sixfingers, so called because of a 6th little finger on his right hand, that starts wiggling every time he lies, was travelling with his two shady companeros on the old trade road that leads through the West Hills. This region is known for it's many wealthy Halfling settlements, and Seppi intends to have a bit of that wealth for himself.

Seppi has woken up with a headache in a dark chamber with a decrepit bed frame, a bed pan and a solid round door."

I love the direction that Westfalia is taking with this, rather than burdening themselves with trying to aim at large monthly dumps of files they have chosen smaller collections that build over time which makes perfect sense to me. Add to that the hobbit hole terrain which hasn't been available outside of a Kickstarter several years ago and for a dollar a month this isn't just worth a punt if you're into printing but I'm pretty certain it's required. The files come both pre-supported and unsupported and Westfalia are being helped with this by Wyrm Forge.

The best time to break out of jail is when a werewolf isn't outside.
