First of all, thank you for looking at this project. This is my very first kickstarter project, but not my first experience in the miniature world. I'm Arnaud Fournet from France aka KafArt Studio, 2D/3D amateur artist. I model and print 3D miniatures since 2014. in 2016, I created a small range of miniatures: https://www.sygillforge.com/

This project aims to share these spartan models with you, if like me you are a role-player or figurine player,  you may find a character figurine that you will like.

This fan movie inspired and "heroïc-fantasy" miniature project aims for having fun, collecting, playing or painting these legendary warriors... The SPARTAN

Many skirmish and wargame offer a free choice of miniatures such as Iron and Honor, Song of blades and heroes or more recently SAGA in the age of magic, and more.... Here is a warband for this kind of game.

The miniatures are digital sculpts (3D printed with EnvisionTec Perfactory Micro, HD printer), then they are produced in high quality resin. All the miniatures are in multiparts, unassembled and unpainted.

The production of the miniatures will be done by Anakron studio. Talented sculptor and painter, he is just as effective in casting ! Take a look at the work of this complete artist : https://www.anakron.fr

Those look really nice, wonder how much they might potentially drain from my wallet.  Though, I hate the stance on the last one, why can't she be in a fun action pose like the others, instead of that weird, contorted one?

The second-to-last isn't much better, either.    

 

 

WTF? is wrong with me?  

I'm worried about the STANCE of a nearly naked female...   

I'm probably running a fever or something...

Or why couldn’t they be real Spartan women? The ones that sent their boys off to war...

I'd say that all poses but the top two are wierd and contorted. But I like a few nonetheless.

I wish the decorative vertical band with the meander pattern was also a ruler. Are these 54mm figures?

Then those are very fragile resin spears.

 

On the plus side, those spears will be easy to bend straight if they are warped. :D

Spartan women were considered far too valuable to risk in a war. plus they weren't permitted in the Spartan training regime that readied men for war. Maybe they're helots that are revolting who have  acquired spartan arms and armour.

 

Nice models though

I decided to pull out. 

 

One reason was the price for a single mini(there was only one that I found interesting, so the higher tier pricing didn't matter to me), the second was the thickness of the spear. 

 

But what decided it all is the handhold. 

Take a look at the female Spartan standing on one foot as she points her spear forward and down.   

I challenge anyone to hold a spear that way and still be able to thrust with any power or even hold it steady. Actually, just holding it like that is practically impossible.

      Hello all,
       
      We launched our Kickstarter for Studio X four days ago, and it's funded. The Studio X Mobile Painting Studio is for the miniature painter on the go, or has a limited work area.  It's lightweight, compact (8" x 8" x 13.5") and durable; it's perfect for going to conventions, your local gaming store, or painting with friends. 
       
      Studio X holds up to 60 standard dropper style paint bottles as well as a combination of miniatures, tools, bits, and sprues.  It also comes with a removable brush/tool hanger that can be mounted in your work area.  
       
      Come check out our Kickstarter .  
       
      If you have any questions, please ask; we are more than happy to answer.
       
      Thank you

      Nice looking, but less than a day left - Spool Tower
       
      For some reason the SF terrain has me thinking Alpha Complex from Paranoia....

      Story
         A new set of character to enhance your existing line of figurines. If you joined the first 2 Kickstarters you know how the models are, and if you missed them now you have a change to grab them at a discounted price. 
       Order of the Flaming Lys
      A unique set of warriors intent to defend the purity of the Flaming Lys, a medieval like war band composed by nobles and peasants. The Kickstarter is designed to add 3 extra free models based on funding to make a 15 member deal for 59.00€
      Templars of the flame
      A unique cult, a unique faith merged in a characteristic congregate of female priest warriors. The Templars of the flame will sacrifice their life to defend the purity of the flame from the villains.  The Kickstarter is designed to add 3 extra free models based on funding to make a 15 member deal for 59.00€ 
       Want to add more character to your war band or town? Just missed the first 2 Kickstarters? Here is a chance to get all of the models in bundle saving some "coins"
      Don't need a full set but just a few of them, don't worry all models of this Kickstarter will be available in the pledge manager as single model add-on options. Why not add the Sacred Flame girls to your warrior nuns? She will be an amzing addition.  
      Everyone selecting the Order of the Flaming Lys war band will get this model for FREE
