This is the Funding thread for Armored Personnel Carriers (Tracked, Wheeled, Hover) TRO 3039 and it needs $1000.00 to be Funded. This is for all three of the APC's, the tracked, wheeled, and hover versions.

This has been Funded.

I am definitely in to fund this.
I'll pledge $150 to help make this happen.

I'd love to do more, but con season is around the corner, and I need to re-check the budget first.

I can pledge up to $200, which should cover what is needed to cap this off.

I will be able to be more specific around the 15th, but about $150-200. Will update this when I know 100%.

I can do $200, however I do not have an active paypal account.

Please be specific on the amount you can pledge, when in doubt go low.

$20 is what I can promise
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.

Yep. That's exactly what I did. I'm hoping I can push it upwards in a day or so, but I wanted to stay safe at the beginning.

If I am counting the posts right, I think the "conservative" options places us at $900, with $25 extra in "maybe" money.

Nope! I think you're right, wraith. The money is there!
(I think I missed the change in Mike19k's pledge, taking us up to 950-975, 1000 with my slight bump.)

At this stage, I think I can kick in the last bit to take us over. I'll update my main post, rather than adding it here. *Hopefully* that will avoid confusion.

I don't mind coordinating the payment, since it doesn't look like too many people are involved, and I do have a PayPal account, but I am also happy to defer to somebody else.

I have wanted these things, like, forever.  8)

Having a few extra people pledge won't be a bad thing, some might have trouble transferring the money. Or if we had a real excess, I think that some of us would be willing to shift our share to the riflemen.

None.
You get store credit in the amount you put into the project.

Heh...good to hear.  So if you don't like the end result, you can purchase some other items instead. 

Excellent call. 

Has it always been that way?

Can you pick the sculptor?

There are two sticky threads at the top of this board detailing the Fan Funding 2.0.

For the time being the sculptor for all fan funded items will be Behrle (b-3 on here).

No you can't pick the sculptor.  You're stuck with me for the time being. :D

So we send the money to  you or an account you set up, right?

Behrle Hubbuch has been one of, if not the main BT sculptor for many, many years, now for IWM, before that for Ral Partha.

Look, I don't usually self-arbitrate any threads on here, but there is a rule and a discussion thread right here in this sub-forum. Let's get with the FF sculpts in question, shall we? ;)

Behrle, the one question I have is - can we get you to go really small, tiny and cute with these? And to channel as much of Aliens as possible for the wheeled APC and as steampunk-ey as all heck for the tracked one? O:-)

Sure, 21mm long is the dimension I'm starting with.  The wheeled APC was definitely inspired by the one in Aliens.  The other two idano, I'll generate some orthos and let you see what I have in mind ASAP.
