and welcome to our 4th and latest Kickstarter campaign named Hyperborea: The Awakening.
Hyperborea is a project that expands the Aradia Miniatures range with a new series of models for painters and collectors who love miniatures in 75mm scale casted in high quaity resin. Hyperborea is a new range based on the myths of the inaccessible North and the hyperborean tradition.
We invite you to join this journey into the remote Hyperborea land to discover its wonders and some of its most iconic characters. This is the first part of a new range of amazing and original miniatures and we need your help to launch it on the market. Everything you can imagine to find in a mythical land hidden somewhere beyond the Arctic circle can come to life thanks to your support for this project.
For centuries the mysterious people of the Hyperboreans have influenced the Destiny of humanity from their inaccessible world, lost among the northern mists. The few explorers who have reached their world have never returned, if not rare, like Pythagoras, Apollonius and a few others. Now it's no more time to remain hidden: the looming threat of the southern races that are destroying the last remains of the hyperborean tradition scattered around the world and that are advancing northward to conquer the Kingdom of Thule, centre of Hyperborea, must be stopped. Today is the time to go out from the occult sleep that lasted for centuries and restore the ancient order all over the world, today is the day of Hyperborea: The Awakening.
In this project you'll find 3 types of Miniatures:
- STANDARD (75mm figure)
- LARGE (90mm creature)
- EXTRA LARGE (75mm diorama)
Through the choice of the different pledges, you can combine different quantity of miniatures for every typology.
Do you want to add additional miniatures to your basic pledge? Simply add the corrisponding amount, indicated in the "Add-on" section, to your pledge! Example: 1) you pledge with "Hyperborea" for 270 CHF; 2) you'd like to add a new Standard figure 3) so you have to click the button "manage my pledge" and adjust the final amount covering the cost of your basic pledge + the cost of the add Standard figure (270 + 44 = 314 CHF).
Below we'll show you the stretch-goals that we want to achieve with our project. Some stretch-goals will be free, others will be available increasing your pledge. If you like our miniatures and our work, help us to reach all the goals!
How do I get the miniatures that I want?
To add any of the ADD-ON or STRETCH GOAL Options to your pledge:
- You may add multiple copies of any of the ADD-ONS or STRETCH GOALS to your pledge.

Risks and challenges
We have already 3 successful kickstarters under our belt and the past experiences in this field have allowed us to improve many things, from casting quality to shipping. For this project we have calculated to have ready in 2-3 months the 5 starter figures and in 5-6 months the stretch-goals. All the production work should be fine as it has been done for the past campaigns, anyway 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.
- 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.
