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.

Step By Step Article: How to speed paint Dire Avengers

Dire Avenger Step By Step!

Okay, new Step by Step Article. I love Eldar armies. They have some of the best looking models in the entire range from GW. Nice, elegant models, really nice sculpts, plus the best variety in actual infantry units. The part I hate is painting them. I have in my stockpile, probably about 6 x 10 man squads of Dire Avengers. So I am putting together a simple guide to follow to get Dire Avengers painted quickly and nicely. Total paint time on the sample model for the tutorial is about 15 minutes. While painting a whole squad, the paint time will be cut in half, because block painting will be used.

Paint Manufacturers Guide:
  • GW - Games Workshop
  • VGC - Vallejo Game Color
  • P3 - Privateer Paint


Step 1 - Prime Black
  • I know, every one wants to paint Eldar with white primer. With the current ranges of "one coat" paints, like Foundations by GW and almost every color by P3, there is no reason to prime white unless you really need to, like lots of flesh colors, or painting yellows or something like that.

Step 2 - Armor Base Coat, Wash
  • I picked Mordian Blue (gw) for the base coat. It covers black primer really nicely and really compliments the next step in painting
  • Wash all blue areas with Azurman Blue (GW) wash

Step 4 - Helmet Crest
  • Paint the helmet crest in whatever color you want, I am going with Iyanden Dark Sun
  • Wash with Gryphon Sepia (GW)

Step 5 - Clean Up/Weapon details
  • Reblack with Chaos Black (GW, VGC, or P3) out the hands, feet, tabards, and avenger catapult
  • Pick out a few areas to pick out with Mithril Silver (GW)
  • Wash those areas with Badab Black (GW)

Step 6 - Main Helmet Color
  • Base the helmet main areas in Astronomican Grey (GW).
  • with a really clean brush and water - layer on thin layers of white (GW, VGC, or p3), leaving the racks and crevasses the lighter Astronomican Grey (GW)

Step 6 - Basing
  • Paint over the basing material with Beastial Brown (GW)
  • Wash the base with Devlan Mud (GW) Apply liberally
  • Repaint outside of base with Chaos Black (GW, VGC, or P3)
  • Using small dots of superglue, apply static grass in a few spot on the base
  • Matte Varnish and play the game!
