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 "invest" in a new range of figures and that investment would be considered credit to the range of figures created? So you could put in, say, $100 USD, and during the 12 to 18 months that production takes, you can purchase $100 USD worth of any figures from the range, at a, say, 10% discount over final list price.
