Aradia Miniatures has now announced the launch date of their Dante’s Inferno Kickstarter, bringing out a range of miniatures for collectors and painters to get stuck into based on the work of Dante Alighieri.
From what we’re seeing here in these teasers it looks like the game takes inspiration from a number of different sources including the famous artwork of the poet and the Gustav Dore illustrations that have become so famously tied to the work.
While I doubt I’m going to have the skill to paint any of the miniatures that come out of this it’s great to see someone looking at bringing these visions to life. I studied a lot of the Divine Comedy at University and it was a fascinating read, especially when you get into the backstory of why he wrote it.
Turns out Dante liked to drop a lot of his arch-enemies into hell when he was writing!
It will be great to see this project develop when it launches May 5th.
