I like the strips GW makes so I am not too keen if it is individual models.

I would suggest trying to design the strips in as 'snippable' a way as possible, so they can be used 'as-is', or snipped and spread out/crammed in to suit multiple tastes.....

Would there be an interest in making a nice big monster like this? =D

How many people are in Europe?  How many in USA?  And how many in Australia?

I'm wondering what kind of interest we have in each continent.

Me, PW and Stormwind are based in the UK. At least one of my mates (UK) would be likely to back this too (non forum dweller).

I'm assuming that the Goaties will be made for the Fan list.

I think a KickStarter would be very cool.  I am concerned that the cost of production get calculated correctly so that those running the KickStarter don't wind up deep in debt.

How would you guys feel about resin miniatures as opposed to metal?  Would you prefer one to the other?

would certainly prefer metal myself, tbh I probably wouldn't buy them if they were resin, too fragile and brittle for small-scale gaming IMO

Metal would be quicker to cast, less labor intensive, and there is no waste (i.e. miscasts are melted down again.) The downside is that there can be higher costs, but I think those are mitigated in the long run because of the points I previously mentioned.

This all makes me wonder what, if any, plans the likes of Eureka and Copplestone might have to expand their ranges.

I prefer metal, but I would probably buy them in resin if price is good enough.

I can tell you from experience that metal is very expensive.  For 10mm figures it might not be too bad. 

The cost of Pewter looks to be something like $1.50 USD per ounce.  The problem appears to be Tin trading at around $10 USD per 16 ounces.

Metal all the way. (wouldn't buy resin at this scale)
Would prefer strips to individuals so they look compatible with the curent WM GW range.
