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.

Because Rich asked so nicely! A Deathwing Terminator Painting Tutorial.

With the latest incarnation of Deathwing models, I have been pressed into service by my wife to get a DW army ready for the table.  Here is a step by step tutorial on how I am doing the terminators, because my buddy Rich Van Meter asked for it :)


Step 1.  Prime white, basecoat in Bone (I use Menoth Base).  Wash with Seraphim Sepia.

Step 2. Rebase the Bone, leaving the darker washed brown in the cracks.

Step 3. Edge highlight with a 50/50 mix of bone and white.

Step 4. Reblack out areas that are to be covered with metallics. Go ahead and apply the metallics ( I used a mix of GW and VGC metallics) . Once dry, apply a wash of Nuln Oil.

Step 5. 5 Stage red. Yep - 5 stages to get red onto the model. Apply Skorne Red to any areas that were previously repainted black - in this case the Storm Bolter Housing.

Stage 6. Apply Khador Red over the Skorne Red and to any other desired areas for the red.

Step 7. Apply Evil Suns Scarlet to the red areas, leaving a small crack of the darker red in recesses. Then apply a thin highlight of Blazing orange to the edges and high points.

Step 8. Apply Carrowburg Crimsons wash to all read areas.  I am using this as more of a glaze, but still want it to hit the cracks. And there is the 5 stage red - I have been using this to paint my Blood Drinkers, so will post a walkthrough on them once I have finished this squad of Deathwing.

Almost done!

Step 9. The Crux Terminatus.  Apply a coat of Skull white to the Crux.

Step 10. Take Codex grey and super thin it out with Nuln Oil.  Wash this over the white.  This gives a really nice stone look without resorting to drybrushing.

Go back and add whatever details you want.  I painted the purity seals, lenses for targetting arrays, and the little skulls on all the iconography.  I also went back and trimmed up any areas where I might have been a little sloppy.

The Final Result!

Only 2 more Deathwing squads, a command squad, 2 characters, and 2 Dark Talons to go!  :S

For this squad, I have about 20 hours total into the paint job, not including assembly.  I will post later today about bashing the standard Space Marine Terminators with the Deathwing is not as straight forward as you would think.
