Stormlight Archives Miniatures Set Released on Kickstarter, Kaladin Miniature and Figure Revealed (Exclusive)


Brotherwise Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of an all-new figure set based on the best-selling Storm Archives series by Brandon Sanderson. New Storm Archives The miniature set will include 24 characters from the first four books, with four additional characters added to the set assuming the campaign achieves certain lofty goals. Many miniatures feature characters depicted in visual form for the first time, including several from the most recent book The rhythm of war.

To help kickstart the new Kickstarter campaign, Brotherwise Games has provided with exclusive images of two campaign elements. Be warned that one of the images is a major spoiler for The rhythm of war, so don’t keep scrolling down if you’re not caught up with the books.

First, Brotherwise Games provided with an exclusive first look at a 12-inch statue available to backers. The 1:10 scale resin figure depicts Kaladin battling Szeth in the skies, a recreation of the pair’s battle during Shine words.

The second image shows Kaladin wearing his Shardplate, as seen in The rhythm of war. The image below features concept art by Ben McSweeney and the final sculpt by Leander Pokorny.

Johnny O’Neal: We’ve been working with Brandon and the Dragonsteel team since 2020, when we released a version of our Call to Adventure series of games based on The Stormlight Archive. This project included over 100 illustrations, and during this process I established a very good relationship with Dragonsteel’s art director, Isaac Stewart. Last year we started talking about making Stormlight figures. From the beginning, this project has been focused on visual development first, merchandise second.

What is the benefit of running a miniatures project for Stormlight Archive as opposed to raffles or another type of Kickstarter project?

O’Neal: There have been many great illustrations of Stormlight, but the characters have never been depicted in three dimensions. I spent a decade working in the toy industry before getting into tabletop gaming, and personally, I love miniatures and action figures. Brandon is a gamer and was excited about the idea of ​​miniatures. Isaac liked that creating miniatures required us to really define an official look for all these characters. So it happened quite naturally!

Assuming this succeeds, will we see even more Cosmere figures down the line?

O’Neal: That’s the plan. These 34mm miniatures will be fully compatible with an upcoming Stormlight tabletop game that Brotherwise is developing with Dragonsteel. This Kickstarter mainly focuses on protagonists, so we would like to sculpt more opponents in the future. We also want to do the fifth set when the next novel comes out!
