      Right, look at the updates, especially the final one.

      Since this product is flawed, and I have lost interest in a company who only cause delays, changes goals, delivered late, and still had a a product that was so flawed the company issued statements on how to paint on caulk it. For shipping and delivery, I pass the crap product along. Otherwise, I burn it on Monday with the rest of the trash.

      @Tom Snider, Generally, hard plastics are very expensive to tool as they need steel plates for the injection. I don't know what DP9 are doing though so they may be doing things differently (I think there are cheaper options too)

      @Earle Beason, are you a regular visitor of the DP9 forums?

      I can tell you this KS was given to fans for review nearly two months ago. Mr. Dubois and Dave both have been communicating regularly here, on the DP9 KS thread, and also on Dakka. So I wonder what it is you refer to.

      If you are a regular poster to the DP9 forums, would you give your handle? I am Kris_Din there.

      @Earle: You getting this KS confused with another one? DP9 have been crazy communicative from day one. Caprice models were moved up the list so they would unlock faster. Mini goals were added between standard goals to entice more backers. At what point have DP9 been dishonest or misrepresented themselves? What is this "bull" that has been added and removed?

      I'm smelling troll here.

      Yeah I'm with Edward what the hell are you talking about Earle? They moved the minis up the stretch goal list so they would get unlocked earlier, how is that a bad thing? From memory the Caprice Mounts where initially set at $130,000 and they moved them to $93,000, that's a good thing in my book otherwise we wouldn't have unlocked them. Also we now have the Acco Mounts to go with them. I can't detect any bullshit from this kickstarter, I think it has been run quite well with almost daily updates telling us whats going on.

      As a long time fan and supporter of DP9, I have a realization that I am not backing any more DP9. Changing the goals, add bull , removing bull and just generally not being upfront are not really ideal qualities for any company. I am disappointed in the particular kickstarter. It's no wonder why few people here in America has heard of DP9 and fewer even play.

      Meh . . .

      So happy with plastic, I hate when heavy painted models tip over on uneven terrain. This will eliminate that. I'm thinking of converting all my metal minis to be wreck markers.

      Awesome update, but I'm starting to worry about the sheer amount of plastic they are planning on providing for such a small cost.
