The first year of Fantasy Figures International has been a real team effort and we'd like to thank all of our contributors and advertisers and especially you, our readers and subscribers, for making it all possible. We've got some big plans for the next year and remain entirely committed to bringing you the very best in Fantasy and Sci-Fi miniature painting and modelling for many years to come. So, please do enjoy this Yearboo
Fantasy Figures International is celebrating its first year as the number one independent magazine for all aspects of Fantasy and Sci-Fi miniature painting and modelling. When we launched the magazine in the autumn of 2019 we were acutely aware that although there was plenty of stuff online, there was very little available in print that catered for miniature painter and modellers in these genres. Given the huge amount of interest in Gunpla, Maschinen Krieger, and science fiction modelling more generally, not to mention the huge growth in popularity of both fantasy and science fiction miniature painting, we thought the time was right to offer modellers a regular high-quality print magazine that catered for these interests.
A year or so, and seven issues, later we could have had no idea of the enthusiastic support the magazine would receive from hobbyists all across the world. A measure of that success is that five of our first six bi-monthly magazines have now completely sold out. With that in mind, and aware that new readers were discovering our magazine all the time, we made the decision to gather together some of our favourite articles from the first year of the magazine in this special collectors' edition Yearbook. In it you'll find a good selection - we hope - of the articles from the across the various genres and modelling styles that we have featured in the first six magazines. I know that many of our readers missed these articles first time around so it's a great opportunity to get your hands on some classic articles from the likes of José Brito, José Luis Lopez Ruiz, Don Suratos, Roberto del Cima and Alex Varela. For those readers who have been with us from the verybeginning - thank you - we also have a brand new article from the master of Maschinen Krieger, Bryan Krueger.
