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.

Death Guard Post #4 - Alternate Color Scheme Tutorial

Well, I didn't get to paint last night.  My butt needed a break from my chair, so I hung out with my family instead.  Anyhoo - As I am painting tonight, I am working up a tutorial for my alternate color scheme for the Grave Wardens.

Here is the Chem Master, Grave Warden Sergeant

Step 1 - Primer and Basecoat
Prime black with Primed Vallejo Polyurethane Acrylic Grey (73.601)
Spray GW Castellan Green Air

Step 2 - Color Blocking
On the shoulders and bone areas, block with GW Rakarth Flesh (base)
Reblock GW Pallid Wyche Flesh (layer)
Edging on greaves and pauldrons GW Balthazar Gold (base)
Skulls GW Mephiston Red (base)

Step 3 - Shading
Mixing 1/4 Lahmian Medium and 3/4 Agrax Earthshade, wash the entire model, making sure that it does not pool heavily in any area.
Once the shade is dry, color block out anything to be painted VGC Beasty Brown and GW LeadBelcher.  Wash those areas with Nuln Oil.

Step 4 - Reblock and highlight
I reblocked all main colors, leaving the recesses darkened.
For highlights on the main armor, I mixed a 50/50 mix of GW Castellan Green and GW Straken Green. On the wide armor plates that would have light hitting them, I painted this mix, leaving the darker Castellan green in the darker areas.  The final highlight was edge highlights of Straken Green.
For the bone/white areas, I edge highlighted with GW Skull White.
Brown areas were re-highlighted with Beasty Brown, and then a quick drybrush of leadbelcher was applied over the washed silver areas.
Over the washed gold, I highlighted with GW Gehenna's Gold.
Finally, the reds were highlighted with GW Evil Sunz Scarlet and a fine highlight of GW Wild Rider Red.
The helmets were painted the same way as the rest of the Bone.  For the eyes, I went with GW Moot green, and applied a light wash of GW Biel Tan Green wash.

I glued in the heads.  If you look carefully, the damage that was molded into the models have been highlighted using the method for painting on armor chips, I made sure to keep the darker colors inside the molded on damage, and paint the highlight below the damage.

So far, I am really happy with the way that this legion is looking!
