It's finally here, launching June 2017 Flytrap Factory steers away from recent Kickstarter campaign having fulfilled our commitments to return to a brand new monthly release schedule for historical products.
Warfighter Vietnam Available now
Having sculpted Vietnam War ranges for several companies already in scales from 6mm through to 30mm I've finally returned to my favourite period to cement Flytrap Factorys new range firmly in 1:72 (20mm) Vietnam. Despite what other larger companies would have you beleive was primarily an infantrymans war. Flytrap will focus heavily on the infantry aspect of this period leaving vehicle options to the multitude of wonderful 1:72 model-kit manufacturers already offering precision models available for fantastic prices. Today we are extremely proud to present the initial glimpse at the first codes in our latest addition to the world of Warfighter. Warfighter Vietnam our brand new launch into 1:72nd scale (20mm) modern warfare promises to bring to your tabletops the very finest white metal wargaming miniatures we can produce.
JUNE 2017: THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS
Containing 30 brand new individually sculpted miniatures expertly molded and cast in glorious white metal (no horrible bendy plastic here lads) the first three codes introduce the mighty Green Machine of the U.S.M.C in all its glory. The United States Marine Corps has a strong and courageous heritage dating back to the very foundation of their nation and a history rife with the accounts of some of the very finest and most courageous warriors to serve the stars and stripes.The United States Marine Corps is the very first faction we cover 'in-country'. Each month moving forward we will have a slew of exciting new releases, new factions, accessories and eventually our own dedicated ruleset so that you can get the very best out of your investment in this comprehensive new range.
