Commission Painting and Pricing

Yes, I do take commissions.

Infantry is $10 a model, regardless of size, up to 40mm round base.
Large Infantry and Cavalry is $20 a model, up to 50mm round base.
Vehicles are based on size:
$100 for 40k dread sized (60mm base)
$150 for 40k Rhino chassis or similar, smaller fliers (Storm Talon)
$300 for 40k Land Raider, larger fliers (Storm Raven).
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 6 - Assembly *sigh*

Assembling Models You Hate

I hate Khorne Berzerkers. Or at least the models. For game play, I love the chain axe wielding loonies. I scream "Blood for the Blood God" when they move and assault. My problem is with the models.
Complaints about them are as follows:
  1. Poseablility - Even thought they are "modular," they lack any real posability. Most have their arms tucked firmly to the sides of the bodies, making dynamic poses all but impossible without major converting
  2. Variety of gear - the older sprues (10 years old) lack any real cool bits to spruce the models up. Just swords (I thought Khorne favored axes), some pistol holsters, and a few grenades (tiny by the way)
  3. Falling legs - They have 2 sets of legs per sprue that are suppossed to be "running" The look like the guy tripped and is falling. matched with the lack of posability, it makes for some strange looking models.
  4. Details - Compared to the newer Chaos Marine models, the Berzerkers lack a lot of really cool details. When you swap in parts form the newer marines, they make the model look mismatched. The bolt pistols are also sculpted pre-3rd edition, so they look really hokey and large. Not the slick looking BP that come on the new marines.
All in all, I should have converted them to be Thousand Sons......LOLS! But for game play wise, the Berzerkers are a nice add in, especially with the Rhino to transport them to the front, and then summon a CC equipped Termie unit to back them up next turn.......WEEEEEEEE

So Sunday was pretty much a waste. Berzerkers assembled. :) I did get in some good movie time with the wife though, so can't count it as a total loss.

On the advise of Adam, I am going to pre-assemble everything that will get painted in Yuma. I'll also pre-prime as the newer GW primer sucks and I need to be really careful and allow it to fully dry before trying to paint on it. I'll just need to add an Army transport to my list of items to secure from storage next weekend.

Still no lamps yet, but since I have tons to put together, I will just do that and start the painting when I get to Yuma.

So the order of battle with what is assembled:

  1. Obliterator Cult - 3 models ASSEMBLED
  2. Plague Marines - 10 models (Yuma)
  3. Chaos Terminators - 5 models (Yuma) ASSEMBLED
  4. Possessed Marines - 10 models (Yuma)
  5. Chaos Lord - 1 model Main Character (Yuma)
  6. Berzerkers - 8 models, with 1 Rhino to match ASSEMBLED
  7. Spawn - 3 models ASSEMBLED
  8. Chaos Terminators - 5 models ASSEMBLED
  9. Plague Marines - 10 models
  10. Defiler - 1 Tank
And I am having another conundrum. The paint scheme. I really want to paint these up to match an army out of the book, for saleability, and I am not sure that the Purge are it. I have been favoring a Black Legion paint scheme,since they are featured all over the place in the books and everyone that plays Warhammer40K knows who the Black Legion are. Simple enough to do the change on the paint scheme, just need to have it all settled before I lay brush to model.

Talk to me about primer dude. What happened to the old stuff we use to use with the big mean sun face on it? I can't find that down here in Yuma. Is that off the market? That stuff was fast to dry which made priming and painting go a lot quicker.
