    I don’t disagree with this. For my part I believe that the creator has done some really mind blowingly dumb things. They have done everything they are being accused of. I am not sure if they are scammers or just really dumb. I don’t think it will deliver, but $1 is not a huge risk. If they are just dumb, I feel bad for them.

    So, I decided to back again. I don't feel like retyping, but here is what I posted in the comments, Hello everyone. I was a day 1 backer who dropped out on Day 4. I was pretty rough on the creator from the beginning and dropped out at the time because I wasn't sure the project would be delivered. I am back, but not for the reason some of the others have rejoined. I don't disagree with the evidence and what most of the others here have said, but. I do think some of the comments went over board. For the most part most of you have done a great job of just keeping people informed. And I respect an appreciate it, especially posts like the ones from Impact games. However the main reason I have decided to back this was a comment yesterday that asked if people had brought up whether this project would be used to fund terrorism. That comment has turned me to want to support Foxtail. Do I think they will deliver? At this point I don't care. I hope they do. But at this point I am only here to support them. I am backing at $1.00. Because I really cant afford a full pledge. I will up if I can during the pledge manager to show my support. I have a soft spot for underdogs... Like the Tyrion quote about bastards. For the record, I am not against any of you here. I just don't like the hate I have seen (again not universal). If the Foxtail guys are not on the up and up, fine but they are human, and I am willing to risk my $1 to find out.

    I was curious, so did a google search. Average salary in Pakistan is $1500/ year. So st $45,000 that’s 3 people for 10 years. Not bad.

    I got a KS message from them. I do like a lot of things but I am not going to back again. I dropped out like the day before the Cobfrontation lock out. I will pick up some stuff on the website later on.

    Do you collect for RPG's or for Painting/display. I am SOOOOOOOO not good enough for display, so mostly pick up for gaming, but there are some models I will likely never use that I want. I just gave my Kanjira to a friend who may actually use it. This is also why I buy so many multiples of some things. 8 copies of the Naga guys (+2 from the 2 core sets) means a big Naga centric game in the future... I am currently enjoying a diet coke. Being Diabetic and all...

    Not taking any bate here... Argent is huge. The wyvern looks much more manageable from a gaming stand point. Wasn't feeling the Skeletal dragon, but it looks really nice.
  7. Im looking forward to Stormwing. Really sorry I passed her up in the Kickstarter

    Have 2 Argents locked in. (One for a friend). Currently 1 dragon turtle. They are just so massive and awesome... But unlikely to come up much in a game. Still Its better to have an Argent you don't need. Then need an Argent you don't have...

    The feed has convinced me that I need a Skeletal dragon, another wyvern and another dragon Turtle.... No word on the number of halflings that Treebeard can eat...

    And I am out. They looked like they were getting better at communication but they have said maybe 8 words in 3 days... a video was promised Saturday, then Sunday, then today and it’s still not up. So, I am out.

    So, I am still one the fence and 1 foot out the door, but I will probably give them until the last couple days to convince me. I agree with others that I dont think its a scam, but I am not convinced of their ability to do this yet. As I am not in it for the game anyway I am not fussed bout a poor rulebook, but that is a major concern if you are. They seem to be starting to be more responsive, We shall see.

    That's pretty bad... I saw someone commented about this in the KS comments... the creator did not respond to that at all...

    Yeah, I looked at the Drake projects and this one and don't see any real similarity in writing style or miniature renders. Take that for what you will. I have serious concerns here. The Creator seems to actively avoid questions. They stated its because they don't want to keep repeating answers... but someone created a spread sheet on google drive to consolidate questions so they would only have to answer once. But they have not answered any questions there. They do pop in the comments every couple hours but the comments they make are more like "give me a hug" or we will answer later we are just geeks and hav ebeen eating a ton of pizza and drinking sooo much coffee!!!!" I will give them til Monday then probably drop out.

    They have done Orcs, and Dwarves so far right? They have looked good. I wish they would do humans or Elves.... Ogres are interesting. Hmmmm
