Studio Miniatures Global Funding Project

For those of you that are not aware of it by now, Studio Miniatures from the U.K. has a global funding project on "Indiegogo".

Who are Studio Miniatures?
Studio Miniatures produce zombie (including WW2 German zombies) and survivor miniatures, and as I found out to my delight the other day, they also produce some British Colonial figures. You can see what they produce here

What is Global Funding?
 Global funding is where people that want funding for a project can list their project and anyone interested in the project can donate towards the project to get it up and running.
 A lot of these projects on the internet use Amazon's Kickstater system, but Studio Miniatures have gone with Indiegogo.
 This is important for me - Amazon only accepts credit cards, and after being a victim to credit card fraud I no longer us a CC online.
 Indiegogo allows you to fund a project with a credit card or paypal.

 So, to all you people acting lick sheep with your funding projects - use a system that offers a variety of payment options!

What is Studio Miniatures wanting funded?

Very basically,  Studio Miniatures has posted a project to have plastic zombies made. There is a goal of $5,000 to get the project up and running. The project ends on 8 September 2012, so at the time of writing there is just over two months left to go.

 What do you get?
 Depending on how much funding you pay for you will get X number of plastic zombie sprues.

 If you fund the project you will also have your zombies posted to you anywhere in the world for free. This is a good thing to note. Free postage. World wide.

 There is also a free metal zombie figure on offer for those that fund the project - provided the project is fully funded.

What if the project isn't fully funded?
 Good question, and one that I asked Studio Miniatures (as well as asking them about the postage).
 If the project isn't fully funded, don't stress - you will still get the zombies you paid for, so you wont lose any money.

So what are you waiting for? If you haven't already, please back this project. If you have backed it, please do what I am considering and fund a little bit more.

Very clearly and concisely explained; it is now obvious to me that you do NOT write user manuals for a living ...

I was the first person to pledge $100 and I sincerely hope that Studio reach their goal.

Having been officialy told my job is under threat. I feel I should hold off buying for now. Which is a shame as I would like to get involved.
