Blind Beggar Miniatures are proud to announce that we have been given permission by Nic Wright (author of the Palaeo Diet rules) and Andrea Sfiligoi (of Ganesha Games) to make a new Tribe to expand the range of miniatures for Palaeo Diet, this time in the form of The Clan of the Cave Bears!
The Clan of the Cave Bears: The Miniatures.
The Clan of the Cave Bear miniatures have been made in varying sizes to represent the different species and age of Cave Bear in the Tribe, to better reflect a hunting party as a whole.
Some of the Bears are larger to reflect their adult bulk, whilst the smaller members of the Clan could represent either different species or adolescent or smaller Bears of the same species..

And some shots of the Bear behinds...
If this campaign is successful these miniatures will be brought to furry life in white metal.
Palaeo Diet: Eat or be Eaten the game...
Palaeo Diet: Eat or be Eaten is a stand-alone set of gaming rules for recreating prehistoric animal hunts on your table top. The game models a time when humans were not yet in control of the world around them, when the landscape could just as easily give succour to a struggling tribe, as it could cripple a thriving people.
Designed with solo and multiplayer games in mind, players take on the role of the hunting party while an integral response mechanism means that beasts react in different ways in different situations.
The game itself can be purchased as a PDF from Ganesha Games here:
Hard copy rule books are also available from Amazon.
It is an exciting, fun and very clever game that can either be played solo, where you control all of the members of The Tribe on their hunt, or as a multi-player game where co-operation is the key to success.
If your group of players is anything like mine I am sure that you can imagine the fun that entails, especially when you have different ideas!
The Pledge Level Options.
There are several different Pledge Levels to build the size of Clan that you wish.
Take a look at the Pledges Levels on the right and choose the size that best reflects your needs.
Even More Bears!
You may add additional members to your Clan with the two Pack options below:
Large Bears: Add an extra three Large Bears to your Clan at a cost of £16 per Pack. Simply adjust your Pledge Level accordingly.
Small Bears: Add an extra four Small Bears to your Clan at a cost of £16 per Pack. Simply adjust your Pledge Level accordingly.
If you want to enlarge your Palaeo Diet collection, or provide some rivals for The Clan of the Cave Bears, you also have the option to add Ooman Tribes to your Pledge Parcel at a cost of £30 per Tribe. There is also a Bears and Oomans Pledge Level available.
Each Ooman Tribe contains six miniatures and six heads, enabling a multitude of options when creating your Ooman Tribe. The Hound in the picture is NOT included.
Simply add £30 to your Pledge Total for each Ooman Tribe that you you would like to add to your Pledge.
All of the miniatures have been created with an integral flat base to enable you to affix them to the base of your choosing.
Any painted examples in the pictures have been fixed to coins with a diameter of approx. 26mm.
Bases are NOT supplied.
Finally....a note about The Ooman Tribe:
As these are two-part miniatures a small degree of modelling skill or experience is required.
The neck join will fit best (and be able to be fitted at almost any angle) when a small amount of Green Stuff is used between the pieces when they are glued together. This will be supplied with your miniatures.
Warning: These miniatures are not toys and may be harmful if chewed or swallowed and therefore are not suitable for young children.
Risks and challenges
Blind Beggar Miniatures have already run many successful Kickstarter campaigns which have all been sent out within the time frame specified at the the time of launch.
I see no reason why this should be any different as the figures have already been sculpted and master moulds are already being made to eliminate as much risk of delays as is possible.
This project is to fund the production moulding and casting of The Clan of the Cave Bears.
Extra time has been factored in to compensate for any delay in casting or shipping, so every pledge should be fulfilled in time.
