A miniature series based on Brandon Sanderson’s bestselling book series The Stormlight Archive be there soon. Brotherwise Games has announced plans to produce a series of action figures featuring characters from The Stormlight Archive, a series of popular fantasy books by Brandon Sanderson. More than 20 miniatures will be produced, with some characters from the series being “officially” represented for the first time. The Kickstarter will launch in September. You can check out an overview of the Kaladin and Shallan figures below:
Interestingly, the new miniatures are not produced with a game in mind. Johnny O’Neil, co-founder of Brotherwise rated on twitter that the miniatures project was “a visual development project first, a miniatures project second”. The character designs used in the miniatures campaign will serve as a reference for future game projects, book illustrations, and even potential Hollywood projects. Given Sanderson’s love of tabletop games, it seems like only a matter of time before a Stormlight Archives tabletop game or RPG is announced.
This is the second Brotherwise Games project that features The Stormlight Archive. Several years ago Brotherwise published a Stormlight Archives version of his popular fantasy adventure Call to adventure, which featured dozens of new artwork depicting many characters and scenes from the book series for the very first time.
The Stormlight Archive takes place on the planet Roshar, which is plagued by violent storms that have shaped the planet’s cultures and ecosystem. The main conflict of the series involves the rebirth of the Radiant Knights, an order of warriors with magical powers who mysteriously abandoned the planet at some point in the past. In addition to having an epic-scale storyline involving apocalyptic stakes, the series is also central to Sanderson’s Cosmere saga, a shared universe of books with a metaplot that can be followed from series to series. Many characters from Sanderson’s other books have appeared in The Stormlight Archive.
The Kickstarter campaign for Stormlight Archive Thumbnails project will be launched in September.
