A rigorous technique for the consistent calculation of the effective parameters of infinite three-dimensional metamaterial particle arrays in the realistic case of oblique wave propagation, is presented in this paper. The extracted polarizabilities of the consisting scatterer and the numerically retrieved wavenumber for the obliquely propagating electromagnetic waves are systematically inserted into a properly modified first-principles homogenization technique, thus leading to the characterization of the effective medium. Finally, the proposed methodology is applied to two popular, anisotropic metamaterial resonators.
