Jérémie Bonamant, Allan Carrasco and Benoit Cauchies create together the PANTHEON DAEMONICUS, the biggest project ever made by Figone !
After "Rocco le chevaucheur" (the rider), and "Moloch le géant des montagnes" (the mountain giant), Jérémie Bonamant Teboul and Allan Carrasco, two stars of the miniature world, join forces with Benoit Cauchies and Felix Mertikat to create the PANTHEON DAEMONICUS, the biggest project ever made by Figone!
As you did with Figopedia, the best-seller, you have the possibility once again to help our ambitious project to come to life.
Fans of their respective work know that monsters are Allan's specialty, and female characters Benoit Cauchies' strength.
The sculpture of this impressive diorama is the fruit of these two artists' collaboration, under Jérémie Bonamant Teboul's artistic direction, and based on an illustration of Felix Mertikat.
All of these artists have worked for FIGONE regularly in the past. FIGONE is a french company founded in 2009 by Jérémie Bonamant Teboul, whose sole purpose is to produce and distribute high-quality miniatures for collectors, painters, and sculptors.
Heady delight, flames caress bared flesh. Languid pleasure, as bodies lie lazily on plump cushions.
The Quatuor appears posing, models of an evanescent work of art. Although the Quatuor does not freeze, it holds its breath before plunging back into the intermingling of their senses, similar to the silences in a Wagnerian opera.
THE PANTHEON DAEMONICUS is an impressive diorama of 75mm scale models, which required no less than a year of work for our team.
It will be cast in high-quality polyurethane resin for the miniatures and plaster for the scenery, which will allow for the utmost restitution of the sculpt's details.
During the campaign, you'll see the sculpt's progression and the finished piece as you discover the concept stages of Felix Mertikat.

Many interpretations of the diorama are possible, of course. A version of the diorama painted by the talented Bruno Lavallée will be shared during the campaign.
And you, how would you paint it?
Jérémie Bonamant Teboul has started painting the model, and production will begin during the campaign.
JÉRÉMIE BONAMANT TEBOUL
The fame of JBT in the miniature world no longer has to be established. He lives in Lyon, France, and has been painting miniatures for over 20 years.
He's worked as a painter, sculptor, and art director for many companies (Ilyad Games, Rackham, Kraken Edition, Artefactory). He has created his own company, FIGONE (website).
He's also a freelance painter and sculptor and has published several books and DVDs on miniature painting.
In over 20 years, he's amassed many awards at some of the most significant international contests:
55 Golden Demons, 3 Slayer Swords (Germany 2004, France 2005, Canada 2006)
many gold medals and Best of Show (The Little Soldier [Italy], Montrouge [France], Montreux Show [Switzerland], Monte San Savino [Italy], Girona [Spain])
Crystal Brush 2013
He was part of the judging committee at World Expo 2008 (Spain).

Allan Carrasco is a world-renowned sculptor who lives in the south of France. He's worked as a freelancer for Studio McVey, Figone, Dark Age, Enigma, Eden, Kingdom Death, Mierce Miniature, Predastore, and Smart, among others.
He's also amassed an impressive number of trophies such as:

Benoit Cauchies is a self-taught sculptor who worked since 1993 for many European and American companies in the miniature industry.
He's worked for the most renowned brands: Nco Historex/Nemrod, Pegaso, Figone, War and peace, Sgt black art/ Terrible kids stuff, Blacksmith Miniatures, Aradia, Arena Rex... and for his own line of miniatures, BC Création.
Whether it is busts, historical pieces, or pure fantasy, he fulfills his mission with brilliance, while giving life to the drawn concepts offered to him.
Deemed the most promising German cartoon artist in years by the Rolling Stone magazine, Felix Mertikat is also a talented painter and illustrator. After his highly lauded first graphic novel, Jakob, he then feels the need to move on to a more epic dimension, and that is the birth of Steam Noir. In parallel, he continues to create one-shots as a character designer, most notably with Figone, where he made many characters for the past 10 years. This demonic diorama is his most accomplished collaboration in the world of miniatures.
Bruno has been painting miniatures since the dawn of the '80s, mostly for roleplaying games and wargames. It's only during the 2000s that he begins to change scales and does a bit of everything. Bruno is one of the few people using artistic oil paints (Hold Holland, W&N...). He uses this technique proudly as we've stopped counting the number of gold medals he's earned in the most prominent European competitions.

We'd like to thank all of the people who've made this project possible! It's a pleasure to work with talented artists, good and faithful friends for so many years. Without any specific order, here they are!

Waar dient de collecte voor
Creating a model of this size requires a substantial investment, both in time and financial resources.
The team behind this project lives from painting and sculpting, which means that the project has to be economically viable to be offered.
We set the funding goals we hope to reach to cover the sculpting, molding, casting, and shipping for the diorama.
The majority of the funds collected will go against the three main expenses of this project:
- The team: Illustrators, sculptors, painters, webmasters, shippers, project managers, translators, graphic designers, video artists, carriers...
- Production costs: Resin, silicone, molding costs, shipping costs...
- Campaign associated costs: Kisskissbankbank fees, video production, communication expenses...
Maybe you're wondering why we're going through a crowdfunding campaign. We could simply make this model like we do for all of the ones in Figone's regular line.
There are two reasons for that.
First: unlike the mastodons, this isn't just a preorder platform for us. We REALLY need the funding as we couldn't bear the costs without the support of miniature enthusiasts.
Moreover, we remain a bunch of passionate friends, painters, sculptors, and casters. More than just a sale platform, it's a way for us to make it memorable. We can exchange and share with the passionate painters who paint our creations and give our best to offer quality models.
The extra perks and the miniatures will not be available on Figone online shop before June 2021. It's our way of thanking you for believing in us and in this project.
Now is the time to pledge!
