CMON - Rising Sun Kickstarter ended and the next CMON Kickstarter will be Zombicide: Green Horde. This will be compatible with Zombicide: Black Plague rather than classic Zombicide. My ancient fantasy niche collection pretty much is occupied by Games Workshop and Reaper Miniatures. As with Black Plague and Massive Darkness Kickstarter, it is highly unlikely that I will be backing the Green Hordes Kickstarter.

March comes to an end and I have touched the knife and paint just a little bit this month. Some random miniature and game news of interest to me:
Monday, March 13, 2017
First, Reaper Miniatures monthly 25th Anniversary miniature for February and March are Domur and Tara. I plan to get some of the Bones plastic figures to get the free monthly 25th Anniversary figures. Most likely plan to purchase miniatures that would fit in a narrative for a short or long adventure.
Second, the Rum & Bones: Second Tide Kickstarter shipped the core game to their US backers. I received my copy in mid February. The next two waves will be the rest of the expansions and accessories which I expect to get in mid to late March. The kids seem to like MOBA style games so this may be of interest to them!
Lastly, Relic Knights 2nd Edition Kickstarter got launched at the end of February. This will be my fourth project by Ninja Division/Soda Pop Miniatures that I will be backing. I have recently invested into these miniatures so I would like to see advances in this game system and background. I am hesitant to back any additional projects from Ninja Division as all of their projects I backed have not been fulfilled yet. Overall, I have now backed 12 Kickstarter products during their campaigns and 2 additional Kickstarters post-campaign.

25 Years of Reaper Miniatures!A wonderful way to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Reaper Miniatures will be making special edition miniatures for each month of 2017. According to Reaperbryan from Reaper Forum:
"I can say that we've taken some of our favorite models from the last 25 years (and some new ones!) and asked the sculptors to lavish them with some TLC, and update some of them with brand new sculpts and re-imagine those heroic (and villainous) characters, making them better than ever!"
