Ladies and Gentlemen

As the last of the Autumn leaves fall to the dry earth, the valley once teeming with flora and fauna of countless varieties now braces itself for the long cold that threatens it with its icy touch. The chill on the air gives warning to all life that the time to hunker down approaches and the need for final preparations, foraging and hunter gathering for sustenance has now become of paramount importance. The sleepy tribes nomadic to this world and weary from a long and relentless summer send out their bravest hunters one last time in search of the big kill, a necessity for the life giving nutrition that it will provide them should they hope to survive the Winter.

The World Of Konk
The World Of Konk

Welcome at long last to the Kickstarter campaign launch of our long awaited Caveman vs Wild  '28mm' Prehistoric adventure, hunting and survival game for 1 to 4 players, a game designed for people of all ages and walks of life who yearn for a little wild adventure without all of the seriousness that its real life counterpart would entail.

This campaign aims to succeed in not only mass producing this fine assortment of prehistoric personalities and beasties but also to enable Flytrap Factory to finalise and produce the 1st chapter (rulebook) of our gaming epic… entitled Caveman vs Wild: The Big Chill.

Dire Bear (60mm Tall)

In Caveman vs Wild you take the role of a tribal chieftain leading a hunting party of muscle bound Neanderthals packing state of the art hunting utensils in search of prey and supplies in advance of the encroaching winter now firmly gripping the lands.

In almost every case the predator becomes the prey and overcoming the creatures that inhabit the World of Konk is no easy feat.

Glug the Tribal Hunter (28mm Tall)

Managed by our own dastardly and deviously devised artificial intelligence mechanic our collection of monsterly beings will not hesitate in goring, squishing, chomping or devouring your brave hunters if given the slightest chance!

Nog the Tribal Hunter (28mm Tall)

But in this land it is not only the sharp toothed or sharp tusked mammals that you need worry about, for not only will your hunters face off against these threats but your tribe exists in a land overpopulated by hostile rival tribes, poisonous and carnivorous flora, an ever-changing and chaotic environmental climate and a seemingly endless plague of cosmic calamities and assorted other goodies!

Sabre Tooth Tiger (28mm Tall)

So be warned, Caveman vs Wild is not for the feint of heart, and life in the wide open wild of prehistory is no easy matter. Will you succeed in leading your tribe on the big hunt, stalking and foraging the supplies your tribe will so desperately depend on to survive the long chill, or will your indigenous hunters succumb to the frozen wrath and perils of this wild and unforgiving land.

The Nuts and Bolts

The purpose of this Kickstarter is two fold.

Purpose (A) is for the requisition of resources sufficient to deliver this range to our global customers, Polyurethane resin (people friendly, odorless quality casting resin). White Metal Alloy to deliver hardy accessories and quality hefty elements to our figures and all the moulding rubber we require, both in the form of 9' rubber blanks for vulcanisation and white metal casting as well as Silicone RTV rubber for pressure casting our cold cast materials.

Swamp Tusk Boar (30mm Tall)

Purpose (B) is to facilitate the finalisation of the Caveman Vs Wild: The Big Chill Rulebook. This system has been created and thoroughly tested to bring the very best in prehistoric adventure that we can possibly deliver, it now requires the final attention to bring it to 'ready-for-prime-time' status. This Kickstarter will aid me in prioritising the time to complete the project and deliver it in tandem with the miniatures range.

Thanks and for so much more please 'Like' and follow us on Facebook today!

 Also....Just added! (11/11/2016)

I've been asked several times over the last week or so if I could include the original Pygmy Hunters from Caveman Vs Wilds very first release (some 5 years ago) in this Campaign.

So I will!

Now I cannot add them into the pledge levels as it will throw off the balance of the staggered structure, but I can include them as an add on. The Pygmy Hunters are 20mm tall, they hail from the deepest jungles of Konk and normally avoid any kind of interaction with their larger more neanderthalic counterparts... the big bullies pick on them, and may eat them!

The Pygmy Hunters come in packs of 5 Hunters and can be added to any pledge level for $15NZD $11USD £9GBP respectively. No added postage required.

Thanks for your time Cavepeople (cheers Nick)

Risks and challenges

Risk is minimal for this campaign. Flytrap Factory is an experienced miniatures company which has operated successfully for five years and has a reputation for both quality, communication and reliability.

This is 'Flytrap Factorys' fourth Kickstarter campaign. We have been involved in two partnered up with 'Zombiesmith Miniatures' and this is our second going solo. Flytraps latest Kickstarter 'The Black Toofed Rebellion' was a success and is currently in the later stages of fulfillment.

Anton has been sculpting, molding and casting for 15 years for both of his own companies (previously Flashpoint Miniatures/ now Flytrap Factory) as well as other client companies in need of sculpting/molding or manufacturing solutions. These companies include Special Artisan Services Miniatures, Warlord Games, Treefrog Games, Battlefront Miniatures, Zombiesmith Miniatures, Mike Bravo Miniatures, Campaign Books and Hobby logistics, IDesigns, Flashpoint Miniatures (Reloaded), Clearhorizon Miniatures, Worlds End Publishing, ACP Games, Microworld Games, Siege Works Studios, Sword and Boardgames and others my old brain can't quite remember at this point.

All miniatures as depicted in the photographs have already been sculpted and tabbed and are ready for molding.

All casting/manufacturing and packaging will be done on site by Anton in Flytraps manufacturing premises here in New Zealand. If this project is funded, both master and production molds will be created immediately upon the conclusion of this campaign and casting will begin once molds are completed.

Based on previous experience with our suppliers and given the time of the year we are operating in we expect the first miniatures to be delivered no longer than 6 months following the completion of the campaign. We expect all pledges to be fully completed and in the hands of our supporters no later than May 2017.

Should the campaign go completely bonkers successful Flytrap Factory has allies in both the United States and the United Kingdom who are on standby to step in and assist us in the delivery of this project. However with projected dates and expected success I do not foresee any problems in a timely conclusion and fulfillment period.

Regardless, updates and progress reports will be posted regularly and Anton will be on hand to the best of his ability to answer questions. Also feel free to pm Anton via Facebook where he is never too far away to chat :)
