About this project

Over 500 years ago, one mysterious individual succeeded in uniting all of the peoples of the lands of Arinoth for a common goal, and became the first king of Arinoth.

Vicious orcs fought alongside majestic elves, and powerful lords of the undead stood by human magi. For centuries, these races joined together to fend off foreign invaders.

But this peacetime was not built to last…

The king having been found dead and his legendary artefacts disappeared, the leaders of each race began to tear one another apart, accusing their neighbors of staging a coup in an attempt to take the king’s powers for themselves.

Now, they prepare themselves to wage an unforgiving war against former allies…

The project: 

The goal of this project is to fund a new line of fantasy miniatures: elves, orcs, and other peoples from the world of Arinoth. A game is currently in development, to be released at the end of 2017. Making a pledge to this project is your chance to get a sneak preview of its resin figurines, including exclusive miniatures that will not be available outside of this Kickstarter campaign.

The races:

Elven Alliance:

The convergence of four former elven enclaves, the Elven Alliance has become a powerful and prosperous nation..

  • Dark Seeker, Keeper of the Flame, Tracker Commander:

 An important general in the Elven Army, this former elven Dark Lord is an impressive warrior, in addition to being an excellent sorcerer in close combat. Respected by his warriors, he enjoys displaying his superiority by defying and killing his adversaries in grim and miserable duels.

  • Queen Alaria, High Priestess of the Moon:

Previously Queen of the High Elves, Alaria has since become Queen of the entire Elven Alliance. High Priestess of the Moon, she is one of the best Healers in the kingdom, and was one of the former king’s closest advisers. Now, Queen Alaria has accused the orcs of treachery, and is set on retrieving the king’s powers to eliminate the Orc Warchiefs and restore peace to the Arinoth kingdom.

Orc Tribes:

Although since the reunification there is now a single Orc Chief, the orcs are still split into clans, each with its own special characteristics and skills to bring to the horde.

  • Chol'pif, High Shaman of the Vol’kar Clan, Hordechief:

Chol'pif was “elected” Hordechief, after having killed all of his opposition. This powerful Shaman was the military adviser to the king, and was always on the front lines, instilling fear and courage in his warriors. He claims the innocence of his clan, and accuses one of the Dark Lords of the Undead. He would like to possess the king’s powers in order to wipe out their entire population.

  • Deb'uire, Mountain Orc, Iron Clan Warchief:

Deb'uire is the horde’s champion, its most powerful warrior. If he wanted to, he could undoubtedly take control. But he would rather be in the thick of battle alongside his loyal soldiers than seated around a table negotiating. He trains the Lava Orcs, some of the horde’s best warriors, himself.

Other important characters:

  • Dark Lord Xan'Thaal, Death Knight:

He is one of the most powerful Dark Lords of the Undead. This imposing warrior is also an excellent necromancer. Formerly the king’s siege warfare adviser, as the undead are experts in the art of laying siege. Many Arinothiens believe that it was he who assassinated the king. He has always claimed it untrue, yet without naming another guilty party…

  • Mo'Nik, Master Healer of the Vox Clan:

The Vox Clan is a group of monks living far from other civilizations. Mo’Nik is one of the Master Healers of this clan, specializing in herbalism. Numerous adversaries have been conquered in duels, having underestimated her small size.

And many more...

Not just a WoW vibe, I'll be surprised if Blizzard don't go after them.

They even have Trolls coming up.

Heck, I'm surprised it even got approved. Kickstarter is running a huge risk here, Blizzard could even go after them for facilitating the sale of their IP.

Stay far, far away from this Kickstarter. I just asked if the guy has a contract with Blizzard, on his "company's" Facebook page, and my comment was promptly deleted. So it's not like he's unaware that he's infringing on someone else's IP.

And those aren't just close. Their 'orc leader' is a dead-ringer for Thrall, carrying the Doomhammer. The elfy guy with the weird glaive? That's a Demonhunter, if not Illidan himself (looks like pre-demon Illidan). Big orc with the two-hander? Dead-ringer for Grommash. A lot of the weapons and gear are also near enough to identical as makes no never mind. And his monk looks just like Li Li. >.<

 

I wouldn't touch this with a ten-foot pole, if this guy has no agreement with Blizzard.

That freebie sculpt is cute as heck. Not sure I care for the others. 

 

I thought of the same thing. Thou, it does remind me of the Pandarans or whatever the Panda race is called. It's been many years since I played or even really followed WoW.

      I've finally gotten around to taking some photos, so I figured I'd share. A little info on the minis first though. All the bases are made with broken up cork board that was picked up from our local hobby shop. Then dusted with some sand and painted, then flocked. These little guys were clear coated pretty heavily for table use. Sorry about the quality of the photos. It's the best I could achieve with a cell phone. They aren't nearly as glossy in person, and their skin is quite a bit more olive colored in person also. Anyways, here are the item numbers from reaper if anyone wants to hunt them down for themselves:
       
      03400, Orc Spearman and Swordsman
      03405, Black Orc Hero
      03429, Black Orc Archer (X's 2)
      03489, Black Orc Warriors

      EDIT: Kickstarter is now Live!
       
       
      "Hi everyone, we are back - and with a brand new Kickstarter!
      Later this week we are launching a Kickstarter featuring Viking and Anglo-Saxon ships, buildings and accessories - and we wanted to get the word out.

      Yes...more ships! During the Kickstarter we'll be making some of our older ships and popular models available for a limited time as well as the new ones. Same designs - but now unpainted.
      To recap on our history: Last year we closed up our webstore and decided to pretty much quit making models. But after some thought we came up with the idea for a "Model of the Month" (MoTM) - evolve to go forward! Each month we make a brand new model available for purchase - we take orders, build and ship exactly that number, then "retire" the kit and move on to something else on the next month.
      We have been slowly building up customers and getting the word out there. Some models did better than others but what was clear to us was that we still enjoyed making models, just at a more relaxed pace. Only doing one model a month was way more enjoyable and because we could mass-produce more efficiently - it's also a better business model for us.
      Renaissance Miniatures has never been our bread and butter. We do okay on Model-of-the-Month and Kickstarters but the webstore was always more pain than gain.
      Then came our small Viking ship as one of our MoTM offerings. Vikings was a genre we had never done before but our ship models are always a favorite of customers. So, rather than spinning them out over months - lo and behold: A new Kickstarter featuring what a lot of people know us for..ships!

      The Model of the Month is on hold right now while we get the Kickstarter running - but it'll start up again in a couple of months. But for now, the Viking Kickstarter is the main priority. Getting the models made and sent out to backers as quickly as possible.
      So please join us next week and follow along. Give us some feedback and lets make this fun again. We love talking with you guys. And we love having our models be involved with your enjoyment of tabletop gaming. Now....lets play!
      If all goes well, we'll launch the new Kickstarter on the 9th (this coming Friday)"

      This looks very interesting although it's way above my hobby budget.
