About

Deraj Studios is producing a line of true 32mm miniatures from a fantastical version of the Sub-Sahara. The eventual purpose of these miniatures is for use in their in-development skirmish game, Portals: Worlds Collide. In the meantime, they're an excellent choice of miniatures for your favorite flavor of pen & paper roleplaying game, as well as in games of Frostgrave, Kings of War, Open Combat and a variety of other 'minis-agnostic' games in the 28mm-32mm scale.

We are a growing tabletop gaming company producing a unique line of true 32mm scale fantasy miniatures inspired by various folklore around the world for our in-development skirmish game, Portals: Worlds Collide.

Available Miniatures

The Tryl

A civilization facing absolution, the Tryl are a proud race who struggle to uphold the traditions of their ancestors while surviving the threats presented to them from both a crumbling society and unknown invaders who have begun an unyielding hunt for the magical Skavda, committing mass genocide on their less defended territories in the process. 

'Tryl Scout' (Koga) Concept Art
'Tryl Scout' (Koga) Concept Art
'Tryl Scout' (Koga) Sculpt
'Tryl Scout' (Koga) Sculpt

Koga has always exceeded at stealth, even as a child street urchin, pilfering through goods at market and making her way into the shadows before the sellers were aware of her presence. 

Her skills only grew as she did, and drawn by the allure of treasure, she joined ranks with one of the warbands roaming through her village in search of new recruits as soon as she was able.

Size - 16mm to the top of the head [provided with a 30mm base].

Sculptor - Kamil 'Smok' Milaniuk.

Add-On price - $8 USD.

'Tryl Merchant Guard' (Rokar) Concept Art
'Tryl Merchant Guard' (Rokar) Concept Art
'Tryl Merchant Guard' (Rokar) Work In Progress Sculpt
'Tryl Merchant Guard' (Rokar) Work In Progress Sculpt

Rokar has sold his services to the merchants in order to protect their valuable wares as they traverse the lands of Spiaca, protecting them from roving bands of Dameeri as well as the many creatures who dwell in the vast expanses of wilderness.

Size - 35mm to the top of the head [provided with a 40mm base].

Sculptor - Kamil 'Smok' Milaniuk.

Add-On price - $12 USD.

Olkro
Olkro

Olkro has been a warrior from a young age, following in the steps of her mother in the matriarchal Tryl tradition of monster hunting. 

The Grum were her main targets until the Serpents broke the ancient treaty of peace that had kept trade flourishing and needless bloodshed at bay. These she slew gladly, and with reckless abandon in the heat of battle. Olkro protects her kin from these giant serpents and the priests who serve them. She uses the weapons of their dead priests and from the snakes she pieces together their scales into armor that she wears as a trophy of war.

Size - 25mm to the top of the head [provided with a 30mm base].

Sculptor - Kamil 'Smok' Milaniuk.

Add-On price - $8 USD.

'Slorn Packbeast & Tryl Merchant' (Kaga & Grok)
'Slorn Packbeast & Tryl Merchant' (Kaga & Grok)

Raised by Grok since he was a hatchling, Kaga has been a packbeast for as long as she can remember. She is a towering creature who, when faced with forced combat, is more than a match for those who would seek to rob Grok.

Traveling across the lands across the fragile trade routes established by the Tryl to sell his wares, Grok is ever-vigilant against those who would take his valuables.

Size - 65 mm to the top of Grok's head, 55mm to the top of Kaga's head [provided with a 50mm base].

Sculptor - Przemysław Szymczyk.

Add-On price - $30 USD [$50 USD for x2].

Kaga comes with 2 head options.
Kaga comes with 2 head options.

The Dameeri

Fast-rising amidst the chaos of invasion, the Dameeri seek to change their placement in the power structure against the technologically superior Tryl.
Olgo
Olgo

An outcast who was banished from his village for dismissing the ways of the elders, Olgo became a formidable spellweaver during his time of banishment.

Wearing the carcass of the legendary Snapper, Olgo now leads the Dameeri to war to defend their homeland.

Size - 23mm to the top of the head [provided with 30mm base].

Sculptor - Jared Anderson.

Add-On price - $8 USD.

Rogget
Rogget

Rogget was always more keen to learn how to best prepare food than how to best an opponent - to make the best dish from raw flesh was more of a challenge than how to successfully split open an enemy.

Size - 24mm to the top of the head [provided with 30mm base].

Sculptor - Kamil 'Smok' Milanuk.

Add-On price - $8 USD.

Togger & Rogget
Togger & Rogget
Togger
Togger

Togger fights alongside his brother, Rogget - felling enemies many more times his size in order to protect him and his allies.

Size - 24mm to the top of the head [provided with 30mm base].

Sculptor - Kamil 'Smok' Milanuk.

Add-On price - $8 USD.

'Brute Boulder Tosser' (Skoga)
'Brute Boulder Tosser' (Skoga)

Skoga was collecting stones of interest for his mother when the skies flashed in vibrant, blinding colors. He writhed as his body changed violently - the child who had grown accustomed to being at the bottom of the heap in the games with the others was now a hulking beast, both capable of rendering an elder to shreds and unable to consider the consequences. 

After marveling at his newfound strength and size, Skoga found a boulder bearing an especially alluring glimmer. Carrying it across his back, Skoga returned to his horrified mother - gifting her the rock present and smashing her into an unrecognizable corpse in the process. 

Skoga carries with him the guilt of the event with him always, now using it as a source of rage with which to commit further atrocities against those he is ordered to slay in battle.

Size - 28mm to the top of the head [provided with 40mm base].

Sculptor - 'Zorro'.

Add-On price - $12 USD.

'Brute Beater' (Gor)
'Brute Beater' (Gor)

Gor was immensely violent even before being transformed by the opening of the portals into the creature that he now is - unlike many of the others who have been termed 'Brutes', Gor was ecstatic for the change in his stature and raw power. Any who had wronged Gor in his past - older brothers, despondent friends - were soon found and made to regret ever angering him. Many found their lives cut short and those who didn't face life as a cripple, some missing limbs from the revenge attack.

After slaying those he considered his enemies, Gor was put into the front lines where his formidable strength and ability to utterly destroy soon earned him the status of a hero amongst many Dameeri, despite his unrestrained violent nature. 

Size - 34mm to the top of the head [provided with 40mm base].

Sculptor - 'Zorro'.

Add-On price - $12 USD.

The Grum

Feared and hated by the Tryl as much as they are worshipped by the Dameeri who serve and offer tribute to them. The Grum stand as gods amongst the other races, though the loss of one is as tragic for them as a hundred foe would be to their enemies. 
Brakka Concept Art
Brakka Concept Art
Brakka WIP Sculpt
Brakka WIP Sculpt

"Cut down like wheat before a scythe, we were unable to stop this monstrosity" - Vuk.

Brakka is the first to enter the fray, and the last to leave it - often mangled and bleeding, and always with an impressive amount of slain foe. In battle, Braka cares not for his own wellbeing but rather he welcomes grievous injury, using the pain ensued to put him into a blood frenzy which enables him to fight with even more ferocity when at the brink of death than at the outset of the battle.

Size - Approx. 85mm to the top of the head [provided with a 90mm scenic resin base].

Concept Illustrator - Kamil Jadczak

Sculptor - Kamil 'Smok' Milaniuk.

Add-On price - $50 USD [$90 for a set that includes the parts to assemble both Brakka and Gursk - or two crosses between them, includes x2 90mm resin scenic bases].

Gursk Concept Art
Gursk Concept Art
Gursk WIP Sculpt
Gursk WIP Sculpt

"His warriors kept fighting far beyond when it seemed their life's blood had been drained from them twice over - some were missing limbs and yet they continued to apply their bodies far past what they should have been able to endure" - Unknown dying Militia.

More prone to keeping those he considers friends alive instead of laying waste to those that encroach upon Grum territories, Gursk uses the magical energies of the land itself in order to bring vitality to his fellow Grum, keeping them fighting even after suffering appearingly mortal wounds.

Size - Approx. 85mm to the top of the head [provided with a 90mm scenic resin base].

Sculptor - Kamil 'Smok' Milaniuk.

Add-On Price - $50 USD [$90 for a set that includes the parts to assemble both Gursk and Bakka, or two crosses between them, also includes x2 scenic resin 90mm bases].

Shakia Concept Art
Shakia Concept Art

"A strange creature dressed in plumage and shining items that seemed to denote a level of posterity amongst its peoples - we saw it skirting our flanks, seemingly ignoring our presence entirely as it dug up and carried across its back the magical Skavda" - Yaroslava.

Although a good deal smaller than many of his Grum kin, Shakia knows of the value of Skavda and focuses his time on that rather than engaging with the foe directly - often hurrying towards the contested resource and bringing it back with him during encounters with the enemy rather than outright attacking. His armored plates have kept him protected from more than one gun wound from the accursed soldiers of the invaders - an aspect that has kept him alive far longer than many of those he fights alongside expected this spellweaver to last.

Size - Approx. 35mm to the top of the head [provided with a 50mm base].

Concept Illustrator - Kamil Jadczak

Sculptor - This miniature will be sculpted by Kamil 'Smok' Milaniuk.

Add-On price - $30 USD.

Yrsla Concept Art
Yrsla Concept Art
Yrsla WIP Sculpt
Yrsla WIP Sculpt

"When you hear the cold, wet, sound of it sliding and twisting through the undergrowth toward you, that's when you know that it's already too late to flee" - Nadia.

Yrsla is slow to come to terms with the new alliance struck between the Grum, Dameeri, and Tryl to protect their lands from the invading forces - often raiding coastal Tryl villages and taking with her several of their live young in order to feed her own offspring.

Size - Approx. 100mm to the top of the head [provided with a resin scenic 90mm base].

Concept Illustrator - Kamil Jadczak

Sculptor - This miniature will be sculpted by Kamil 'Smok' Milaniuk.

Add-On price - $60 USD.

Wandering Creatures

A few of the many who traverse the lands of Spiaca untied to any grand alliance or faction other than their own interests and instincts.
Slag Creature
Slag Creature
The slag creature, though slow-moving, presents a constant threat to those who find themselves lost and alone in the wilds. 
Size - 29mm to the top of the head.

Sculptor - Bruno, Jared Anderson

Add-On Price - $8 USD


 

The remnant of a once mighty piece of land brought to life by the magic emanating from it, the Mud Creature continues the cycle of duplicating into smaller versions of itself until it is naught but a vast legion of child-sized mudlings.

Sculptor - Bruno, Jared Anderson

Size - 27mm to the top of the head [provided with a 30mm base]

Add-On Price - $8 USD.

Mudling
Mudling

The Mudlings are the final form of the Mud Creature who they fell from.

Size - 19mm to the top of the head [provided with a 30mm base]

Sculptor - Przemysław Szymczyk.

Add-On Price - $5 USD


Mudling II
Mudling II

Though less of a threat than an annoyance, the Mudlings are at times a playful creature. They are known to play tricks on lone travelers, leaving and then returning again with a more boisterous prank than before, sometimes getting so carried away that the game never ends until the wanderer meets her end.


Size - 18mm to the top of the head.

Sculptor - Przemysław Szymczyk.

Add-On Price - $5 USD [provided with a 30mm base]

STRETCH GOALS

$5,684 USD - Bolag

[LOCKED] Bolag (Brute Brood Mother) Concept Art
[LOCKED] Bolag (Brute Brood Mother) Concept Art

Bolag was always protective of the young Dameeri in her tribe. Even now after transforming into the hulking creature that she now is, she protects the smaller Brutes around her, felling enemies hurling Oslov Larvae at them who devour into their flesh and burst out of them as formable beasts of their own right. 

Size: Approx. 50mm to the top of her head.

Concept Illustrator - Kamil Jadczak

Sculptor: This miniature is going to be sculpted by Jared Anderson

Add-On Price: $45 USD (provided with a 90mm scenic base).

If unlocked, Bolag will be added to 'All In' pledges for free! Additionally, Bolag will be available as an add-on to all pledges. 

SOCIAL GOALS

100 Backers + 750 facebook page followers - Kaska, Gak

[LOCKED] Kaska, Gak Concept Art
[LOCKED] Kaska, Gak Concept Art
Kaska and Gak, though not related by blood, have banded together in order to escape captivity and survive the threats posed against them in the wilds of Spiaca.
These two feral Slorn fledglings are much smaller than a full-grown Slorn but are still more than a match for those who would seek to domesticate them and turn them into beasts of burden.
Size - Approx. 27mm (Kaska) and 35mm (Gak) to the top of their heads.

Concept Illustrator - Kamil Jadczak

Sculptor - Przemysław Szymczyk.

Add-On Price - $30 USD [for both Kaska and Gak, provided with x2 40mm bases]

If unlocked, Kaska and Gak will be added to 'The Alliance' and 'All In' pledges for free! Additionally, Kaska and Gak will be available as an add-on to all pledges.

These miniatures are being cast in high-quality resin and are expected to be delivered by May of 2019. If we're late on delivery, you'll be getting a handful of extra miniatures as a thank-you for your patience.

Each miniature comes with a 30mm, 40mm, 50mm or 90mm round-lipped base, depending on the size of the figure.

So far the miniatures featured in this Kickstarter have been sculpted by the following sculptors: Kamil Smok Milaniuk, Przemysław Szymczyk, Jared Anderson, and Zorro. Our sculptors are able to create miniatures incredibly close to the original concept art illustrations, which are made by the ever- fantastic Kamil Jadzak. Music featured in our video is by bensounds.

Shipping

This project is Customs-Friendly for, US, EU and CA backers. We are based in the United States but we have an EU distributor (Mr. Lee's Minis!) as well as a Canada distributor - backers from the US, EU and Canada will have their rewards shipped to them from a distributor in their country, thus avoiding extra shipping, tariffs, and fees.

Estimated Shipping Costs Charged in pledge manager after the conclusion of this Kickstarter campaign are listed below- please do not include these estimated costs in your pledge level amount!

Desperate Tryl, Lowly Dameeri, Mighty Grum Pledges:

USA: $7.25-$10 to most contiguous states. $15-$25 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Canada: $10-$20 to most cities. Europe: $8-$15 to most countries. Australia, NZ: $10-$20 to most locations.

The Alliance, All-In Pledges:

USA: $20-$30 to most contiguous states. $35-$50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Canada: $20-$30 to most cities. Europe: $20-$30 to most countries. Australia, NZ: $25-$35 to most locations.

All other countries and for 'Add-On Only' pledges: Dependent on location, package size, and weight.

Shipping prices listed are in USD. Shipping estimates are subject to change - though we'll do our best to stay as close to the above listed estimated shipping costs as possible.

Risks and challenges

The previous kickstarter we ran delivered later than what we had anticipated and listed as our delivery date - this time around we're attempting to offset that risk by producing only resin miniatures through another established resins caster that can produce our miniatures with less delays (instead of both resin and pewter versions of the miniatures) and not making any miniatures that are as outrageously huge as Baba Yaga's Giant Rooster House from the previous campaign, as awesome of a 'mini' as that is.

We have done work with our EU distributor, so we don't anticipate
distribution issues arising from that area.
