Discover the 54mm exclusive miniature range from the universe of the Lands of Arran.

This project features exclusive and collectible miniatures based on outstanding illustrations from the Elves and Dwarves universe. This universe is taken directly from the eponymous comic books published at Éditions Soleil and taking place in the Lands of Arran.

The campaign will last 8 days. The miniatures will be only available during this campaign. And so, by "Exclusive" and "Limited" we mean we will cast the miniatures for Kickstarter backers only. Those KS exclusive miniatures will never be sold in stores after the campaign. 

 

Elves have become tied down to the Human race and their bastard offsprings, fruit of their forbidden unions, survive in the world of Human. Some gather into tribes. Many live from their art or from special abilities (gift of magic, of night vision, of clairvoyance, etc.) from the combination of human and elf genes. Some even have blood relation with other breeds…

Oösram was the greatest general of the Seven-Dragons Fortress. But he betrayed his oath. Since then, he is nothing anymore. His beard was cut off, his properties confiscated, his glory forgotten. He and his family became Wanderers, working the land for a pittance. Oösram accepts his destiny. Until the day he lost his daughter when a Venerable of the Order of the Forge refuses to look after the child of a pariah. The former General goes back to battle. Those he once defended have now become his enemies…

HIGH QUALITY RESIN CAST

Miniatures will be casted in polyurethane resin. We have been working for the past 5 years with GRX Création. The well-known quality of his work is no longer to be proved.

 Miniatures are sold unpainted and unassembled.

 

 SCALE 

54mm scale is the ideal for maximum detail and to remain in a reasonable price range!

You can see below the sizes and scale of the miniatures in relation to each other.

 

SCULPTURE

MIKH: close to the [Studio], MIKH has been immediately excited by the project! We have been working for about three years on the development of these licensed miniatures. Take a universe and a scale he was not familiar with, and MIKH was on board with another challenge!

  Sculpture: Jih-Biin the Semi-elf

Valentin ZAK: one of the most in vogue sculptors right now. From the Kazama studio, Valentin always surprises us with his concept readings, providing to painters an enjoyable paint job.

  Sculpture: Oösram of the Wanderers

 

PAINT JOB

With great pleasure, we let Martin Goumaz from Cows and Chocolat put his brushes on Jih-Biin Miniature. You can appreciate the extreme sculpture finesse brought to light by Martin’s fantastic paint job.

Immortal spirits that populate the world of Arran. Arran is both God and Earth. The Elves are the second children of Arran. They came to the world soon after Dragons and before Men. White Elves are at the origin of all the other elven races that emerged during the Great Schism. 

 

While Elves are organized by race, Dwarves are organized by Orders; hierarchical and hereditary social groups within the same people. In ancient times, the Dwarves formed a powerful people united around one king. Their civilization then dominated the East lands with a complete supremacy. Until happened the Great Schism that led to the bursting of a millennial kingdom into a multitude of fortress-states entrenched in the heart of the highest inaccessible mountains of the world. Knowledge and power, up to then concentrated in the hands of a few powerful dwarves, were divided between four dominant Orders: the Forge, the Retaliation, the Temple and the Shield. Then, a fifth Order was created, including the pariahs and the underprivileged: the Order of the Wanderers. Thus, the dwarf society, despite its bursting and the loss of a powerful central power, persisted through the centuries and preserved its values and unity through the coexistence of the five orders. Although the Dwarves are not as numerous as they once were, they are still the most formidable warriors of the known world, unparalleled craftsmen and engineers of genius.

 

WHY KICKSTARTER?

On this project, we worked with the best professionals to guarantee a final product of a flawless quality. To found such a project, Kickstarter brings us the possibility of gathering the design of several miniatures during a single campaign.

In addition, Kickstarter is the perfect platform for [One-Shot] production. As these miniatures are not intended for retail sale, the visibility that offers us Kickstarter in a short period can only be beneficial.

Two miniatures are available from the launch of the campaign: Jih-Biin and Oösram. Our goal is to make available as many miniatures as we can. We are already working on two more miniatures. We will give you more detail during the campaign if they are unlocked

Other concepts are only waiting for your pledges!

STRETCH GOALS

Stretch Goals are steps to reach to unlock additional content throughout the campaign. In addition, more miniatures might be unlocked and available to purchase.

Please note that no miniature will be offered for free as a stretch goal. They will be offered as add-ons as described in the following chapter.

 

ADD-ONS and 1€ Reward

Additional miniatures you may be willing to get will be add-ons. That means you can pledge for any miniatures you want.

To do so, choose the reward “Build your own pledge” and proceed as follow:
In the “REWARDS” chapters you’ll find details of the miniatures and their prices. According to your wish, simply add up miniature prices and go to “Manage your pledge” (at the top of the page”).
You will be able to modify the pledge amount by the value of miniatures + shipping costs.

image "gérer mon engagement.

You will be able to tell us your choice of miniatures in the post-campaign survey!

NO PLEDGE MANAGER required

The miniature order to GRX Creation will be made at the end of the sculpture (March, 15th). A Kickstarter survey will be sent after the campaign ended to collect your personal data (Miniatures wanted, addresses, etc.).

You will be requested to answer this survey as fast as possible, to ease our task and to prevent any delay.

CAMPAIGN DURATION 

 We have chosen a short duration for this campaign. It will last 8 days! The [One-Shot] format, unique and exclusive is even more obvious!

SCHEDULE

Shipping will start in July 2018. As said above, we are going to work with GRX Creation. Today there is a 12 weeks production time. It may be less, but let’s be cautious. That brings to mid-June. With some extra weeks to be safe, the shipping of your rewards is scheduled for July!

SHIPPING 

As resin miniatures are very fragile, we are not going to use a dispatcher. We prefer to take care of shipping by ourselves. Every parcel will leave from our office in France. Shipping costs were calculated consequently.

ELVES 

The five different adventures take place in a common world and represent different aspects of this universe. Even if the comic books are independent, they compose a global picture.

Elves is the first concept-series developed by the Édition Soleil, at the instigation of the creators Jean-Luc Istin and Nicolas Jarry. These two authors have imagined, for each book, different peoples evolving on a single map divided into several territories. 

Elves' illustrators: KYKO DUARTE - GIANLUCA MACONI - STÉPHANE BILEAU - JEAN-PAUL BORDIER - MA YI

Elves' story-writers:JEAN-LUC ISTIN - NICOLAS JARRY - OLIVIER PERU - CORBEYRAN - MARC HADRIEN

DWARVES

Nicolas Jarry, already a story-writer on Elves, wanted to develop a new series taking place in the same universe: Dwarves. He then imagined the different Orders of Dwarves, and the stories he wished to tell. Then, Jean-Luc Istin only needed to gather illustrators whose graphic style would match that of the Elves series. Pierre-Denis Goux, the graphic designer, made the Dwarves bible which brings a strong coherence of this universe.

Risks and challenges

Aaaaaaah the “Risks and challenges” chapter!

TIMMMMMMMMBER !

All KS project promoter write down here the “same mentions”. We will try do say those “same mentions” but differently. After being so serious through the whole page, maybe we can be sincere right here! Speak without stonewalling… (it shouldn’t be so hard for a Lumberjack!)

THE LANDS OF ARRAN is a project that we really care about. We have been working on it for longer than the Lumberjacks Studio existence. It starts from the time we were called “Skulls Mini”…

We worked with the Best!

Lumberjacks words: “quality costs money”.

Here is the risk. Is the investment up to the stakes? (yes I had to pinch this sentence to a politician, I know ... but it sounds serious!).

The challenge will be to make this project successful!

To allow all people involved in this project to be proud of the work achieved: Illustrators, story-writers, sculptors, painters, publishers, and many others…

And despite all the astronaut-lumberjacks attacks coming out of space, to send your parcels in time!

We planned everything accordingly, we are ready, we are preparing ourselves for this moment since a Lumberjack is a woodcutter, since an axe is an axe!!!

So pledge! Pledge higher, pledge stronger!
Follow the lead of that bearded part inside you…

and SHARE*


The Timber God will reward you a hundredfold!

*/Yep, that’s a good action/ :D
