My question is directly related to Fan Funded sculpts.

I didn't recognize the name and am asking for a few examples of his work prior to committing any funds.
That's what the Fan Funding Questions thread is for (as stated previously).

Behrle's latest work is the Ostwar. Already published works include the Warwolf, Lament, Doloire, both new Banshees, Tiburon, Sling, newest Zeus, XTRO Marauder, Primitive Thunderbolt and many more.

Fan Finance 2.0 Questions

And seeing this thread is not about general Fan Funded sculpts but about the 3026/3039 APCs, here's the tally as far as I can tell:

klarg1 - 200
mike19k - 200 but no paypal account
jymset - 200
Cache - 100 - and lead contact
TS_Hawk - 50
Fletch - 100
beachhead1985 - 20
Maingunnery - 30
The Wayfarer - 50
Heavyguard - 50

Is there any way to solve that paypal problem, mike19k?

How will the IWM store credit be issued and redeemed? What information will need to be provided by the financiers to facilitate this?

During the funding stage, we would like one person to become the Lead contact for the item being funding. So that they can collect all of the contact information (Name, email, and amount) for the backers and then forward one payment to the Sculptor (Behrle Hubbuch B-3 on forum). When any of the Funding threads is fully funded the Lead contact will work on getting all of the contact information and collection of the money to then pay Behrle, preferred payment is Paypal.

Fan Finance Credit

All credit for Fan Finance project will be issues in forum of a voucher through IWM online store. So when we get the collected information for a funded sculpt, I will send out emails from the IWM online store to redeem the voucher of the amount that each person pledged to the sculpt. Credit is still 1 to 1. So now when you place a order with IWM on there webstore, you can use your credit for the purchase.

Are the Fan Financing Credit vouchers redeemable through email/mail orders placed with Melissa The Office Wench?

I ask as my retail orders (and I believe this applies for CSO and Demo Team members too) go through Melissa not the IWM webstore.

Awesome, I will make my small contribution to the cause then. We would not want to see you having to slum it and have look for sculpting work from GW or Palladium ^-^

I salute you for your work on the primative Thud mini - the best looking Thud mini of all time. Keep up the great scuplting!  O0

The Fan Financing Credit voucher are handled through the online store. This is being done removing having to keep track of how much credit people have left and make is easy to spend it. So when I get the list of all of the people who have helped fund the sculpt, they will receive a email from the online store with a voucher amount of what you pledged. Then the credit is used when placing a order through the online store, which also handles all CSO and Demo Agent orders as well.

Thanks for the response Speck, unfortunately my international retailer orders do not go through the online store (if they did I would be less of a headache for Melissa). I am sure I can work something out with Melissa (when she is not too busy) or if it is not possible I may just donate it to a worthy cause . . .

Fletch - Will do, but you will probably have to spend them via the IWM webstore. I might give you my credit voucher to spend.

Speck - follow on question, are the credit vouchers transferable?

Would it be much of a hassle to split up credit vouchers into chunks of 50 or 100 $?

Yeah I would like to know the same. Jymset and I have pooled our credits in the past, to be able to get an order big enough to make shipping to Germany feasible. Will this still be possible?

After you redeem the voucher to your account you can send how ever much you want. If you spend more then the voucher you will pay the extra amount.

Once the voucher is redeemed to your account you can spend some or all of it to some else via there email address. Then they would redeem it and spent it on the order.

Do I understand correctly that we *will* be re-doing the poll every time we do this, right?
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

Any links to people I'd talk to, websites to make donations, etc.? Also, can it be in any order on that list? i.e.: the Vector and Dragoon are what I'm looking to fund. Also, how do I acquire an estimate?
 
As I'm pretty serious about doing this, any contact info you can post or PM would be appreciated.

As the Guidelines say, each Quarter there will be a new suggestion thread and then poll. The top 6 will have the option to be funded.

As I'm pretty serious about doing this, any contact info you can post or PM would be appreciated.

As of now we already have the winners of the first poll for this quarter, which are below.

Primitive Rifleman RFL-1N XTRO Primitives IV      40 (9.2%)
Armored Personnel Carriers (Tracked, Wheeled, Hover)   26 (6%)
Primitive Griffin GRF-1A XTRO Primitives IV              25 (5.8%)
Highlander HGN-732 resculpt TRO 3050U         25 (5.8%)
Black Knight “Red Reaper” XTRO Most Wanted      24 (5.5%)
Flashman resculpt TRO 3025 (revised) /3039 / 3050U   24 (5.5%)
