Legends Of The Jungle is a line of jungle themed dioramas. Designed and sculpted by Hec with a focus on human and animal anatomy. The figures are aimed at miniature collectors and painters who would like to try out or master painting human skin, fur and vegetation. Also aimed at collectors who would just like a great set of figures and dioramas for their shelf.

The first diorama called Lord Of The Jungle has been sculpted in Zbrush:

The rest of their story and production is in your hands! Once we reach our base funding goal we'll be able to proceed to the next stages of production for these two dioramas and possibly more.

We designed our campaign with many pledge levels from small to epic and legen... wait for it... dary!

Have a look through them down here or on the side bar and find the one that works best for you.

Diorama Choices
For many of the pledge levels that include a diorama, you can choose one of the first two dioramas.  If we unlock the third diorama, you'll be able to pick that one as your main one, one of two, or to have it as an add-on to your pledge after the campaign.
The third diorama, if/when unlocked will also open the option of one new large animal to chose from for Beast Tamer and Beast Master pledge levels.

Here's also a brief description of what some of the icons in the pledge list mean:

 Some stretchgoals are automatically added to some pledges as bonus gifts, others become new options to pick from like the third diorama. The third diorama will unlock a third option to pick from for pledges that include dioramas and will also unlock a third large animal for the pledges that include one or two large animals. 

 

Kickstarter is a great platform to make cool projects happen. Making miniatures is pretty fun, but if you want to make them with the highest quality possible and help them find their audience it's gonna take some work and some cash.

We've put a lot of love and effort into the existing dioramas and into the whole project. A fair amount of our cash has gone into the prototyping phase and now we're ready to present this campaign to you. We hope that with your help we can not only fund the first two dioramas, but expand them and make even more figures of the same top notch quality.

With this campaign and with your help we'll be able to make the LotJ figure line into a more complete and robust set of unique figures that offer painting challenges to overcome, and most of all fun with painting and collecting!

In order to be fair to all our backers, we will charge shipping after the Kickstarter campaign ends based on the actual costs. We will collect this via the pledge manager which opens after the campaign ends.

Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping. These are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretchgoals and optional buys you choose.

Austria: € 5 - 7
EU countries: € 10 - 15
Worlwide: € 25 - 50

To help minimize your shipping and customs costs, we will look for international Shipping hubs. These hubs will then ship all rewards to backers in their region. Depending on your region, this will help to reduce import duties you will be required to pay.

Latest delivery of all pledges will be at the end of April 2017

FAQ's 

We will add Frequently asked questions and answers as the campaign progresses.  Stay tuned.

Risks and challenges

Our main objective of this project is to be able to deliver to you an excellent product. Therefore we have partnered up only with companies and people who are following the passion to outstanding quality in their products and services. We have already inspected the final cast quality and the service level of production and distribution. The result of this was 100% satisfaction in accordance to our expectations.

To avoid also failures based on stress in timing, we are only offering a shipment date which includes enough reserves for delivery in time, and the right reliable partner for the shipment of the final product to you.

Besides this, we will keep you informed on a regular basis during all phases of the project.
