Commission Painting and Pricing

Yes, I do take commissions.

Standard Infantry - $10 Per Model
Large Base Infantry, cavalry, and light warjacks - $20 Per Model
Large Monsters or warjacks - $40 Per Model
Vehicles - $100 Per Model
Forge World and Collossals - prices vary

These prices include all assembly and basing. If you already have models assembled, primed, or want to do the basing yourself, please contact me and we can talk about reducing the price.

What you get for your money - models will be cleaned of any mold lines and flash, assembled, primed, painted, based, and matte varnished for protection. Will always be beyond the 3 color minimum for tournaments, and will include the little details that we all want. I will paint an army for you that I would be proud to play with myself. I will do custom color schemes, as well as traditional "from the book" schemes. I only have one level, and that is fully painted.

Miniature Slideshow - Models I have painted

About Me

I paint models and have been doing it since I was 12. Over the years I have learned tons of tricks and painted loads of models. I have ran a very successful Miniatures studio, and owned a Retail Game Store. After closing those, I decided to get a little smaller with the operation and I am back to a one man show.

Day 1 - Setting up the challenge - Painting as therapy

The Challenge

For those of you who know me, you will know I have not painted models in almost a year. I spent almost 10 years painting professionally, ran a successful studio, and an almost successful game store (don't ask).

So I decided that I need to paint. Leading up to painting for hire, I used to paint a lot, finishing an army of 1500 points (WH40K army size) a month. A good friend used to refer to me as the "painting machine." I also used to paint models as a form of therapy, to help ease my troubled mind.

So here is the challenge - At the end of August, I am heading, with my family and my buddy Shane in tow, to Yuma AZ to visit my buddy Adam and to get some serious painting in. The goal is to get at least 2 hours of painting in a day, 7 days a week, and attempting to get this whole heap painted in about 30 days.

So I present to you the Heap

First Victims - Obliterator Cult

Okay so I am cheating a bit. These were left over from my last Chaos Marine Army, a Word Bearors Army, and are about 30% finished, but I will need to change the feel of the models to fit with my new "the Purge" Nurgle Chaos Marine Army. The selection of "impurity seals" will be painted to look like flesh hanging off the models, and the overall color scheme will be to fit in with the rest of the Army.
Based on the "fluff" of Obliterator Cults, these guys will retain most of the standard "Iron Warrior" color scheme of silver and bronze, but the hanging flesh parts and the fleshy growths on the models will be done in Rotting Flesh, and the bases will be identical to what the rest of the army will look like.

The basic color scheme looks like this, with alterations for Champions, Lords, etc:

Now if we can only figure out how to speed paint, while drinking, without loss in quality ...
