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.

Stormcast Eternal - A requested tutorial

So, while chatting with a member of my FLGS gaming group, I was asked about a painting tutorial for purple on a Stormcast Eternal.

I just happened to have an extra, so I asked him for an example picture.  I was provided with this:

 He stated he wanted purple where the pink was, so I figured I would give it a go.  I wanted to produce something that was fully reproducible.


Step 1 - Prime the model black.  I used Vallejo Poly Acrylic primer, and shot it with my airbrush.  After it was dry, I decided to tackle the black armor first.  No, normally, you can go with a grey extreme highlight, but to do this you have to have tons of brush control, and even then, the highlights look wonky to me.  I decided to give this one a shot of the old "off black" treatment.  An easy way to quickly highlight black that will give the black parts some color variation.

I took P3 Coal Black, and mixed it 50/50 with GW Abaddon Black.  This was applied in a drybrush over the whole of the model.  I then, added more P3 Coal black (about a 75% Coal Black to Abaddon), and drybrushed again, going lighter this time.  The last really fine, controlled drybrush was with straight P3 Coal black.  Alternately, I could have just applied a straight up light drybrush of Coal black, and then used Nuln Oil wash to tone it back.


Step 2 - Color blocking golds.  Using GW Retributor Armor, I blocked in the shoulder pad trim, shield trim, and various other bits and bobs.  I applied GW Mephiston red to other trim areas, like the hair, lappets (the strappy things hanging over the codpiece), and hammer grip wraps. After this dried, I applied a wash of GW Agrax Earthshade.


Step 3 - Color blocked out the GW Naggaroth Night on the shield, shoulder pad, and the rear tabard. I also applied GW Ironbreaker to the hammer sigil on the shield and shoulderpad, as well as the head on the hammer.  I went with this as I wanted a brighter steel than Leadbelcher. Once dry, I applied a GW Nuln Oil wash to the purple and silver areas.


Step 4 - I went back to the gold trim, and applied an edge highlight with GW Auric Armor Gold, followed by a smaller edge highlight of GW Liberator Gold.


Step 5 - I re-blocked out the purple areas with GW Naggaroth Night, and then applied  successive hightlight of 50/50 GW Naggaroth Night and Genestealer Purple.  To the rear facing tabard, I applied both GW Naggaroth and the mix in successively lighter drybrushes.


Step 6 - I then followed up with a very fine line highlight of GW Genestealer Purple. The final drybrush on the back tabard was with GW Genestealer Purple


Step 7 - I then started blocking out the lightning bolts on the shield and shoulderpad with GW Mephiston Red. I painted the scrolls in GW Dawnstone. Once dry, I washed with Nuln Oil.


 Step 8 - Finishing up - Once all washes were dry, I reblocked the lightening bolts with GW Mephiston, then applied successive highlights of GW Evil Suns Scarlet. I repeated the process with the hair and front tabard/ lappets. I reblocked the grey with GW Dawnstone, finishing with a highlight of VGC Stonewall Grey. Finally I painted the eyes with GW Moot Green.



Overall, fun to paint (I really like the color combos on this one) and pretty simple!  Enjoy!
