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.

Trollkin - Like orks but bigger!

Yeah, because they have big ass axes and spears

Okay, so I dug these guys out and started doing repairs. *Note* I did not paint these models. These were done by Andrea, one of my old painters.
I am super critical of people that paint for me, and Andrea was no exception. She is an extra-ordinary painter, but she is lazy, sloppy and inconsistent. Lots of over paint on areas that had to be cleaned up, and little tweaks to make the models stand out a bit more. Overall, I'mhappy with the way they look, but will need a quick"makeover" to get them up to par.
Here are some of the low points on these models before I start the "makeover"

  • Basing blends into the model - to be solved by a repaint and dry brush in greens, and new static grass applied over the old stuff. Never base brown models with brown basing.
  • None of the models were pinned - these are some pretty big models, being "Light Warbeasts," and all metal. When they got scattered in the garage, most broke at assembly points. To solve that when they break again, I will pin the parts back on.
  • Natural feel, but almost too natural - I love the natural look of the models, but about 90% of the model is done in brown of some sort, including a Brownish Grey for the flesh. The metals are heavily glazed, and do not stand out too much. Basically, at about 3 feet, they look like a brown blur - Part 1 of the "makeover" has started. Instead of the dark red gore of the hair, I lightened it up all the way to Blood Red. I have also added some missed details in the form of finger and toe nails which I painted Rotting Flesh and gave a brown ink wash over. I will be picking out some of the lighter browns in Bleached Bone. I will also be cleaning up the armor with a light drybrush ofthe base color.
  • These models have an almost Celtic feel to them, with tartans (Clan Tabards) on each of them, but they blend in with the model. I will be chosing a contrasting color, probably a red /black plaid, to make it stand out. I'll search the Tartan Ferret for an example to paint on
