I have standing orders with Miniatures Service Center for their 40mm AWI and Medieval ranges. I get the new releases as they come out.

Also have done a couple of Kickstarters for full ranges.

POLL DESCRIPTION

WKeyser expresses:

The idea of pre-ordering or subscription buying has been used by boardgames for quite a while now. Not many miniatures ranges have taken this route. The only one that I can think of is Eureka with their 100 and 200 ranges.

I have always thought that with the power of the interconnectivity of the net to bring people together, that this would be a great way to get a range produced. The idea is that an entire range of figures would be produced, with the manufacturer at least somewhat sure of enough purchases to make the range.

Assuming that the company is at least reputable and well-known, and that the sculptor's work is a known factor in the range and perhaps the driving factor…

Would you be willing to pre-order a complete range of figures? This would be something along the lines of, say, $300 USD to $500 USD commitment to a complete range of figures, which would be completed in 12 to 18 months. You would commit to the stated amount but would be billed as the figures are released.
