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.

Warhammer 40k Death Guard – Characters Tutorial

So, along with 7 Plague Marines (7 is the Chaos Gods favored number), the Warhammer 40k Dark Imperium also comes with some pretty spectacular Death Guard Characters.

These are:

Lord of Contagion , a huge Chaos Space Marine covered in corrupted Terminator armor armed with a plague-reaper axe.

Noxious Blightbringer, a Chaos Space Marine banner bearer,  armed with a cursed plague bell and a plasma pistol.

Malignant Plaguecaster armed with a corrupted staff and bolt pistol.


I have to say, these are some of the nicest core set models ever produced.  Not a lot of room for conversion, but really well sculpted and a great representation of the high powered followers of the GrimDarks Lord of Decay.

For this paint tutorial, I am using a variation of the paint scheme I posted here.  I figured that the more powerful models would be from the original legionnaires of the Death Guard, just warped after 10,000 years in the eye of terror. I block painted all three models at one time, as they are all using the same color scheme. I left the Lord off of his base, as I wanted to do a more scenic base for him, as well as be able to paint the inside of his cape.


I started off with a white primer followed by a coat of GW Rakharth Flesh, both applied with an airbrush.  I took GW Castellan Green and blocked out the shoulder pads.


I then blocked out the cape in GW Khorne Red, leather straps and doodads in VGC Beasty Brown, mail and axes blade in GW Leadbelcher, smaller details in GW Balthasar Gold.  For the three heads in the Nurgle Icon, I went with GW Rakharth Flesh for the skull, GW Deathworld Green for the Plagueberor head, and VGC Sick Flesh for the Nurgling Head and for the pile of Nurglings that the lord is standing on.


A quick shot of the detail on the back.


Once all of this had dried, I gave the model a wash (the whole model) with GW Agrax Earthshade.  I left it to dry and setup the cooler base, which the model is pictured on above.


For the smoke pouring out of the braziers, I applied a mix of GW Sotek Green and GW Abaddon Black, 75/25.


To start re-highlighting the armor, I used GW Rakharth Flesh and applied a wetbrush technique to all of the bone armor parts.  Using the same technique, I reapplied the base colors on the green, red, gold, and silver. The entrails were painted in GW Emperors Children, and then washed with Drakenhoff Nightshade.  Any flesh protuberances were painted in VGC Sick Flesh, and given a thinned wash of GW Druchii Violet.

On the smoke, I applied successive layers using the same wetbrush technique, adding GW Dawnstone to the Sotek/Black mix.  I added in a drop at a time, successively, until I reached the Dawnstone color. A further applied the wetbrush technique to apply GW Pallid Wyche Flesh to the bone areas, GW Straken Green to the green, and GW Mephiston Red to the red areas. 

 And here are the finished models!

I hope you all enjoyed, and can use this while painting your own true followers of the Sickly Way.
