You've Chosen! December AND January Themes!

You've Chosen! December AND January Themes!

We had a fast response for the call to votes on the December theme with the "What If?" category rocketing to the top. A close second was perennial favorite "All Things Africa" - so we're doing both! 

We'll tackle "What If?" for December and "All Things Africa" will be our January theme! Feel free to post below, or on our page at MyMiniFactory, or on the forums, or our Facebook Group with your ideas for these themes for the 11 ranges. We have a few already but the more the merrier!

I’m with Iain Sloan’s suggestion on retro sci-fi – I like retro sci-fi of all sorts, from the “Victorian sci-fi” of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, to the pulps, to sci-fi movie serials and 50s “B-movie” sci-fi, to the likes of ‘60s era Star Wars, Star Trek, and Doctor Who. It seems to me there’s plenty of room in Death Fields and in Classic Fantasy for a variety of incarnations of this sort of thing..

For Alt history, White Russian WWII troops are always a favorite idea I’ve seen. Axis Chinese (what with the German trained Chinese being an actual thing) would be a fun way to have squads of Chinese with MG42s and full auto, stocked Mauser Broomhandles. Speaking of alt history Axis, German occupied Japan a la Jin Roh could be really cool, along with “later” war (1946-1950s) Germans with Sturmgewehrs and Vampyr scopes and other planned weapons. One set might be able to do double duty with some Asian and European heads.

For all things Africa, some Afro-futurism Death Fields and Fantasy figures that are Afrocentric instead of eurocentric would be great if handled properly.

During the civil war the king of Thailand (if I remember correctly) offered Lincoln war elephants to help in the war but Lincoln declined, but WHAT IF he said yes.

How about near future/scifi armed/ unarmed space suited figures.. Cold war gone hot any time from 47 on. Civil wars in the modern period (second British or American). British involvement in the ACW. Retro Scifi TV series style. and finally some female miniatures for any period to add variety not necessary to be full sets but small sets. Victorian steam punk.

For all things Africa, World ablaze, Italian Colonial colonial Calvary, or early war British camel riders would be super cool

Maybe something for the Ottoman Empire in Africa, if not another vote for Zulu. For the DeathFields some Aztec warriors could be amazing!

I would absolutely love to purchase for my own army, a home grown British 24th Infantry, Zulu wars. It would definitely be a great sight to field a whole regiment of futuristic soldiers donned in the British red tunic and white ammunition bags on their chest. A rare sight to see I have been working on my own home brew army, but pictures tell a greater story than a few misplaced words.

Azande and the Hausa=Fulani emirates. both purely historical and sci-fi/Afro Futurism.
