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.

Empire Games - fixing to kick the snot out of the competition

So, yeah Empire Games got me fired up!

Okay, so not wanting to talk bad about games stores and all, especially if they are owned by my friends, lets just say that I have found where I will be heading with my models and kids.

Empire Games
1766 S Greenfield Rd #102
Mesa AZ

480 813 1525

Lets talk turkey about this for a few.

  • First off, big store......okay let me rephrase - it's flipping huge. 3500 square feet to be exact.
  • Bright as hell! The ceiling is painted black and it has lights every 2-3 feet to really make the place bright!
  • Clean. Really nice and clean. Needs to have parts of the floor redone, but that is not the owners fault
  • Lots of stupidly nice tables. Okay I had great tables and terrain, but these things are downright beautiful. Okay, so one of the owners used to run the GW Bunker in California.
  • Terrain is freaking awesome! each table has 8-10 large pieces, all nicely done.
  • Lots of product! Covering about 1/2 of the total wall space (the other half is windows) These guys are carrying way more gear than any other store I have been to.
  • Well trained and friendly staff - Okay, so a bit of bias here, but I have known three of them for about 10 years, and the other two worked at the Bunker in LA. They know and play all of the game systems there, and greet everyone when they walk in!
  • Paint Bar - the cash wrap is actually set up to have people sitting at it painting. Yep, that is right. Painting at the Bar! That way, a staff member is there to help you out with tips, and you can rub elbows with fellow hobbyists.
  • Lots of games carried - a good selection of product from all of the different lines you would expect.
About the only downfalls I can see is:
  • Limited hours - they close way too early for me to sneak in any painting during the week or even on Fridays, but that may as well change
  • Orange walls - more of an aesthetic thing for me
  • hardwood floors - okay, I am a gaming snob, and I like to stand on cushy carpet. Granted they have stools for the tables. And since the install was bad in places, it will eventually have to be ripped up and replaced. But again, more of a personal choice.
So Saturday evening will probably be spent hanging out down there and trying to get some either gaming in or some painting in.
