I would suggest a batter Leviathan sculpt. I would easily throw 200 bucks towards that.

Only if it also comes with Ghost Bear Clawing ritual cake recipes.

I have also some small suggestions I feel may be of interest to the community. I'd like to make a poll, but I don't want this to descend into a war on the subject.

1. Parts. It would of course be up to the community, IWM and B-3, but do we wish to devote some effort to new sculpted parts for current minis to create variants or "fix" otherwise serviceable sculpts?

2. Re-sculpts are always a contemptuous issue; I would propose that no more than half the projects be re-sculpts.

3. Finally, I would like to see the floor opened to other types of minis. So far we have only proceeded with Mech and Vehicle projects. I propose we open the floor to others; such as BA and Aerofighters.

I would much rather see parts to "fix" the other sculpts over re-sculpts. I hope that we will be able to get miniatures for all the old ones that do not have anything yet.

When we have officially kicked off the Round 2 of Fan Finance later this year there will be another one or two unit types. Plus there will be a limit on re sculpts for the final 6 so that we can have more new items.

Just a general note, when Round one is completed. We will be entering the cool down period so that we can release all of the backlog of web only items before Round 2 is open. When we are close to starting Round 2, we will officially create the Suggestion Thread in this forum. That will happen later this fall per th discussion with Mike before GenCon.

Sorry Speck, old boy, looks like I stepped in it then.

And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

I think  a Leviathan cake would be great but as for batter do you think it would go chocolate, yellow or marble. I'm betting marble.

If you don't mind me asking, what needs to happen for minis to be released?

It woulda been nice to be in on the conversation instead of finding out here.

I'm sure it was just an honest oversight B-3, don't let it get you down.

New Suggestion Thread for 1st Quarter 2016 has been opened, Here it is. We have added Battle Armor and Mech Scale Aerospace Fighters to the original two options of Mechs and Vehicles for this quarter of Fan Funding. We are going to try things a bit differently for 2016 by only doing three at a time for each quarter. Also starting the suggestion and funding thread early so that IWM can work to get them released in the quarter that they are being funded for.

there's always a lag of a few weeks between when it is released to distributors and when it appears on the webstore

Out of curiosity what would Assault Dropships in AT2 scale cost to fund? (approx); specifically the Aesir/Vanir and Isegrim.  Would they be along the 500 "vehicle" line or would it be less/more?
