In France and Belgium, yes, via a local French Forum, but members of BFFS expressed also the wish to have a choice among 3 flats.
I let BFFS Committee to select two more as proposal, before registering and proceeding to supply directly and grouped (if to the USA) or via Tin Toy Soldiers ...  I am not familiar with the taste of painters oversea, and I will paint a Dragon Fighter myself (among other paintings ...).

By the way, we are now 10 today here ... and Benedikt cannot cast before ed of next week ... (but we have time too..).

I have initiated the same project (dragon fighter) on a German Forum also today, perhap to group all of them at the World Expo in 2020 ? or Kulmbach, regionally too ...

Does that mean it will be only the Dragon Fighter.

We 're already six participants in France and Belgium for the Dragon fighter ! we will coordinate there on a French forum in parallel. 
We follow Greg ... who is leading the painting since September 15th, and will finish before us ...

But this can be an international party among fanatics of flats painters .... throughout 2019

I would think any figure above the scale of 54mm would be acceptable as one of the three selected by the members.

85 mm in all (including dragon)

Hey, why not ??
One subject can be historical, another fantastc and a third a bust, or an animal.
The Society can meet (phsically or electronically) and have a vote, suggesting three figures ....

ending up with an article in the Journal during the second half of 2019 ....

Its a beautiful figure, as are all of Benedikts but, IMHO, its a bit too much for the average painter and not of a subject many people care to paint. Perhaps the project could be a choice of 3 figures of Benedikts, chosen by the Society.

This is a challenge that some will find to difficult to paint!!
  But have a go and see how you do, we are not all to the standard of Nick, Trevor and Eric and this is not what is being asked but just to be part of the project
You'll pay for your figure, paint it the best you can and show it on the forum, if at one of the shows mentioned show your figure there and maybe walk away with the prize.
There's no difficulty in getting the figures ether from Benedikt or myself, price depends on how many take part.
