    That's pretty cool.

    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.
  5. Kickstarter is now Live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hfminis/kev-white-does-matt-dixon-female-fantasy-miniature/description From their facebook page "For those of you who have missed our newsletter teases, yes, we are dipping our toe in the Kickstarter waters. And yes it will be very soon, in fact as soon as I've finished up the last of the image work. More information will come but the basic gist is that it is for a themed set of miniatures based on Matt Dixon artwork. Not only has Matt done his usual pin-up style for us but has also helped us out with some 'Winter' variants and on top of that I've gone and ruined his beautiful art by drawing nudity over the top of it for our 'Skyclad' variants :) The Kickstarter will initially be for 4 fantasy females, each with their 3 variants (so 12 minis in total) and 'hopefully' we'll go from there. We have artwork for a number of other females, plus 1 male and a few 'add on's, so we'll see how it goes :) This is a pretty big chunk of Kev's time, hence the Kickstarter to gauge interest, and for those of you who aren't into Fantasy, don't worry, we'll be running HF as usual, including releases, while Kev is busy with Kickstarter business :)? In the comments this is supposed to start this Sunday. Not sure if ut will only be metal or if they will offer their resin ones as well.

    Legends of Signum

    <<<MOD EDIT>>> Kickstarter is now Live: Legends of Signum is a 2 players fantasy world wargame, where players will face off against each other in the ruthless battles with help of the summoned characters and creatures. Each new game is unique as the player will have an ability to counter his opponents tactics with a help of highly variable decks, which player can assemble before the match. While the heroes busy fighting one another out on the battlefield, their loyal city dwellers are busy constructing new buildings that unlock new spells, abilities, and characters to aid their heroes in the victory. What also makes Legends of Signum highly unique in and of itself is that we combined best of both card and miniature wargame worlds into one highly immersive gameplay experience. From the very start, we set out to create a beginner-friendly game and so in the process of developing the game we did our best in avoiding complicated game mechanics that you would normally expect in a miniature wargame, yet still gave players vast variety of tactical options. Legends of Signum is a unique combination of a miniatures wargame and a card game. Players control units of creatures lead by mighty heroes and build structures that allow more characters, relics and magic spells to be used on the battlefield. In Legends of Signum you devise your own winning strategy by creating an exclusive deck of cards and collection of miniatures. Legends of Signum is a game for two, where each player controls a hero and a group of characters and builds up their capital city. Initially only the hero figures are present on the battlefield, but as the game progresses, additional characters can be brought in by building the necessary structures. Victory is achieved by either destroying the opponent or bringing your capital city to prosperity. Duration of one game is about 30 to 90 minutes. These are the guys who run the Cadwallon Shop. They used to sell Confrontation recasts. They have stopped as discussed in the Confrontation Resurrection kickstarter thread. Legends of Signum are their own sculpts and their own game. The pictures are of stuff already available and I am not sure if they will be included in the kickstarter. I posted them so you can get an idea of what will be offered.

    Legends of Signum

    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.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    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.
  10. Im looking forward to Stormwing. Really sorry I passed her up in the Kickstarter

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    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...

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    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...

    Overturn Rising Sands

    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.

    Overturn Rising Sands

    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.
  16. Smokestack

    Overturn Rising Sands

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

    Overturn Rising Sands

    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.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    Hestis. thank you! I just went and checked the Live. That's great. They look like they will fit find with my other minis. here are a couple screen grabs. SO I am staying in!!!!

    Overturn Rising Sands

    Yeah the behavior is strange. They comment that they are there to answer questions "ask away" but then say they wont entertain questions. Someone on BGG found the creator's name linked to another company (presumably their day job). The address listed is a private home per Google earth. I feel like I am taking the conspiracy too far, but at the same time I will need some reassurances if I am gonna stay in this.
  21. Smokestack

    Overturn Rising Sands

    That is a good question. Has me a bit concerned as well.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    Yeah I read that. Doesn't really help me though. I am more visual with this stuff. If I saw Sir Forscale next to Solomon I would know. But just raw numbers like that I have no idea how they would look next to other ranges.
  23. Smokestack

    Overturn Rising Sands

    No.. Will go do so now. :) Edit. Ok, they look better than the pictures. I'm in. Will decide between this and Solomon Kane next week.
  24. Smokestack

    Overturn Rising Sands

    This looks interesting. They minis don't look great, but you get a ton for that price. I will keep an eye, this may replace Solomon Kane for me.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    I'm still in.... but am like 99% out... The value thing is not a big concern for me. The question about scale does and they haven't really addressed it or shown any scale shot that I am aware of. 14 more days though so I am still waiting and watching.
