Through this project we want to launch a new diorama available in two different scales: 32mm and 75mm. All the figures will be casted in high quality resin as always.
Our brand explores uncommon fantasy themes, nature and myths. This time we decided to dedicate a diorama to the WINTER season and in particular to the suggestive and fascinating natural spectacle of Northern Lights. The Penguin King has traveled from Antarctica to the Arctic lands in search of the entrance of the legendary kingdom of Agarthi....
As every miniatures collector know, miniatures aren't simple toys, they are pieces of art. For this reason, we have carefully taken care of all the development of this scene sculpted by Andrey Loktionov and based on a digital painting of Stefano Moroni.
The sculpt is done, ready to be casted.
If the project will be funded, we'll be glad to commission 2 box-art versions: the diorama will be painted by Aleksandra Cvetanovski (32mm version) and Mirko Cavalloni (75mm version), both professional painters and winners of several awards at international competitions.
Q: How can I increase my pledge in order to get additional items?
A: Choose your reward level, then increase the pledge amount by the value of the additional items that you’d like. To do that, use the “manage my pledge” button in the top right corner of the page of the campaign. You have to enter the total to cover your base reward level + the additional items that you’d like. Above you can see the price of additional items.
Aradia Miniatures is specialized in the production of high quality resin miniatures for collectors and painters, with a special focus on fantasy figures inspired by the fairy world, mythology, folklore or simply by the vivid imagination of our team.
The company was born in November 2013 from the idea of two italian brothers, Stefano and Federico and it's grown fastly thanks to the support of many painters, collectors and wonderful people who have appreciated our ideas and our work.
Probably you already know our company for our famous figures like Toad King, Diana, Mawhi etc.. or for our last Kickstarter of Dante's Inferno. If not, take a look at our website!

We put all our experience and skills to offer a mix of creativity and quality. Thanks to the talent of our concept artist Stefano Moroni, our miniatures designs are unique and original.
Starting a new project involving sculptors/3D sculptors, 3D printers, concept artist, painters and casting service is not easy but if a company get the funds in advance, everything is much easier. Kickstarter is the best place where we can show our projects in advance and offer our new products with an interesting discount compared to the future retail price. In addition, you'll get the new projects in advance, before the official release on the market. The advantage of Kickstarter is mutual: you get the products in advance and at the best price, the company receives the funds to launch the project on the market.
We have made international shipments from 2013, so don´t worry, you'll receive your rewards safe and in a reasonable time. Once the campaign is finished, we will contact you and give you instructions on how to make the payment for the shipping costs. Every reward will be shipped from Italy (to backers located in EU and other countries) and from Switzerland (to backers located in Switzerland).
*Please do not add shipping to your pledge amount!** Shipping will be paid separately after the campaign and only when your order will be ready to be shipped!
Indicative shipments rates in EURO :

About TIME OF DELIVERY: we have allowed 5 months for production which is potentially more than we need if the project is in line with our forecast, but we'd rather be early as opposed to late.
Risks and challenges
We have allowed 5 months for production which is potentially more than we need if the project is in line with our forecast, but we'd rather be early as opposed to late. For our previous Kickstarter "Dante's Inferno" we were able to send the pledges: 40% in advance, 30% in time, 30% with a delay of 2-3 months. Arktikos project requires much less work than our previous Kickstarter project, anyway we prefer to take more time for the production process and eventually ship the figures in advance.
Some potential issues could be happened:
- unexpected success of this campaign: it is unpredictable and it may cause a bit of delay having to produce many more copies that our current forecast. Of course the quantity of orders / levels of production could influence the time of delivery.
- shipping delays: sometimes they could be, but we will do everything we can to help ensure the product arrives safely and in a reasonable time.
