Commission Painting and Pricing

Yes, I do take commissions.

Standard Infantry - $10 Per Model
Large Base Infantry, cavalry, and light warjacks - $20 Per Model
Large Monsters or warjacks - $40 Per Model
Vehicles - $100 Per Model
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 - Plague Marines Tutorial

The flip side of the new Warhammer 40k Dark Imperium core box is the Death Guard.  They are the followers of the Chaos God Nurgle, grandfather of rot, disease, and decay.


The models are a straight forward build - not much room for converting in these, but they are fantastic models.  I based them on Sector Imperialis 32mm bases to match the remainder of my Chaos Space Marine models, mostly made up of Thousand Sons.

I started these with a black primer, followed by a base coat of GW Castellan Green.  I started blocking out the base colors: VGC Dead Flesh for the face, GW Rakharth Flesh for the should pads, GW Leadbelcher for the chainmail, GW Balthasar Gold for pauldron trim and decorative pieces, GW Khorne Red for the head cowl and streamers, and GW Ushabti Bone for the random horns. This was all followed by a full strength wash of GW Agrax earthshade.


For the exposed entrails, I used GW Emperor's Children, followed with a wash of GW Drakenhoff Nightshade.  Any flesh growths were painted in GW Pallid Wych Flesh, and then washed with GW Druchii Violet.


After all the washes were fully dry, I went back in and did a wetbrush on major armor plates, starting with the base colors. The fly was painted in GW Mechanicus Battle Grey, and then applied a GW Nuln Oil wash. On the plague knife, I applied a coat of a mix of GW Abbadon Black and Temple Guard blue.


For the final step in highlighting, I did a lighter wetbrush of the final highlight colors.  For the dark green, GW Straken Green; the red, GW Mephiston Red; center of the pauldrons, GW pallid Wych Flesh; and the bone with Ushabti Bone. On the plague knife, I applied progressive layers of light wetbrush highlights, mixing in a bit of GW Ulthuan Grey in each successive later.


And here they are!  Such pretty, gruesome, disgusting models.  I love them.  Their whole unclean vibe seems to fit really nicely in with the soul-less automatons of my Thousand Sons!
