About this project

 LAST GOAL!!!

 

 

                                  1 CHF = 0.92 EUR = 1.09 USD

Through this project we want to launch a new series of collectibles miniatures inspired by The Divine Comedy, the Dante Alighieri's poem, the book that recounts about the mystical and fabulous journey that the italian poet Dante Alighieri accomplished through the three realms of the afterlife: INFERNO, PURGATORIO and PARADISO.

At Aradia Miniatures we are all estimators of the great poet Dante so we have decided to dedicate a series of miniatures to his masterpiece.

The first figures of this special series are ready thanks to the help of extremely talented sculptors of our team: Roberto de Meo, Ali Jalali, Joaquin Palacios, Pedro Fernandez Ramos and Alfonso Prieto. All the figures have been designed by our concept artist Stefano Moroni.

Kickstarter is the best place where you can get these new fabulous miniatures at a special price!

 

 

 

 

Dante and Virgil: 75mm figure, sculpted by Roberto de Meo (painting by Mirko Cavalloni)

Cerberus: 90mm figure, sculpted by Joaquin Palacios (painting by Sergio Calvo Rubio)

Charon: 75mm figure, sculpted by Ali Jalali (painting by Fabrizio Russo)

Gorgon's cave: 75mm figure, sculpted by Pedro Fernandez Ramos (painting by Mirko Cavalloni)

Paolo e Francesca: 32mm figure (the total height from the top of the cloth to the bottom is 75mm), KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE, sculpted by Alfonso Prieto (painting by Marko Miladinovic - Craftworld Studio)

As you can see we have already casted some copies of the figures in high quality resin to test the final result, the product that you will have in your hands backing this project. We wanted to start the campaign when everything was finished so that our supporters do not have to wait a long time to get their perks. Now we're ready!

 

Below you'll find the explanation of each pledge: what you read is what you get. Through this kickstarter you can get these collectible figures at a special price and before that they'll be on the market. Estimated retail price for the single miniatures (Dante and Virgil, Cerberus, Charon, Gorgon's cave) after the campaign: 75 EURO / 80 CHF each. Paolo and Francesca will not be sold after the campaign: this kit is available supporting this campaign only.

 

These are the stretch-goals that we want to achieve with our project. Some stretch-goals will be free, others will be available increasing your pledge. Every unlcoked figure will be available at the best price here on Kickstarter - less than the future retail price. If you like our miniatures and our work, help us to reach all the goals!

 

 

 

 

  • At 33K Beatrice will be available for 70 CHF  
  • At 35K Beatrice will be available for 60 CHF   
  • At 39K Beatrice will be available for 50 CHF  

The retail price of this huge kit after campaign will be 100 CHF!

If you want to get Beatrice, you can add 70 CHF to your pledge and try to unlock this figure within the end of the campaign (you can remove the 70 CHF in every moment before the end of the campaign if she won't be unlocked).  

ESTIMATED RETAIL PRICES (after campaign) for the Stretch Goals:

- Dante Alighieri bust: 50 CHF = 46 Euro   

- Phlegethon: 70 CHF = 64 Euro   

- Ulysses: 90 CHF = 82 Euro  

KICKSTARTER SPECIAL PRICES:  

- Dante Alighieri bust: 40 CHF = 37 Euro   

- Phlegethon: 50 CHF = 46 Euro  

- Ulysses: 70 CHF = 64 Euro

Below you'll find the Social Stretch Goals: goals that will be unlocked spreading the word about our project and our company!

How to share this campaign and reach new stretch goals? Visit our facebook page: you'll find a post that advertises this campaign, it's fixed on the top of the page: click like and share it. Just do it!

 

Now you can add also some miniatures of our current range to your pledge! All of them have an IMPORTANT DISCOUNT compared to the regular retail price.  

HOW TO ADD THESE ADD-ONS? IF YOUR PLEDGE INCLUDES 1 OR MORE MINIATURES OF The Divine Comedy: Dante's Inferno SERIES, YOU CAN ACCESS TO THIS OFFER ADDING THE AMOUNT OF THE FIGURES THAT YOU'D LIKE MANAGING YOUR PLEDGE.

 

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). The shipping costs will depend on the weight of the rewards.

Starting a new project is not easy, especially if it involves the production of many high detailed collectible miniatures, neither it's easy to bring it on the market.

Kickstarter is the best place where we can show our projects in advance and offer to you our new products at prices lower by 30-50% compared to the future retail price.

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. A real bargain, isn't it?

Risks and challenges

We have calculated that the rewards will be ready in 4-5 months after the end of the campaign, 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.
