About this project
LAST STRETCH GOAL UNLOCKED!!! THANK YOU!!!
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!

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.
