Painting

With Quality Precision



We provide 6 levels of painting:

 


 

Level 1: DIY

  • Miniatures at this level are essentially base coated with the colors of your choice (typically just the armor/bulk color present on your miniatures) and then shipped back to you ready for you to hand detail them and bring them to life yourself. Some clients wish to paint their models themselves but simply having someone with the tools to quickly lay down quick coats of paint allows them to cut down on the overall paint time while still getting to do the ‘fun’ and ‘unique’ parts themselves.
  • Price Range: $8-12 per model*

 


 

Level 2: Tournament Express

  • Miniatures at this level are painted and based to a basic tournament standard (three colors). Most tournaments require three colors (and basing) to be present on an army to be ‘legal’ for tournament play. The miniatures at this level will not be ‘amazing’ but will simply meet the mandatory standards. Some clients may find that this is a quick way to get an army painted and ready for the table fast. They may wish to go back themselves and add additional work/details.
  • The turn around time on these projects will generally be faster as well to help accomodate clients who want their miniatures/armies completed by a certain date so that they can use them for an event/tournament.
  • Price Range: $10-15 per model*

 


 

Level 3: Tournament Express +

  • Miniatures at this level are painted to a higher standard than the previous level and are above the typical table top standards for miniatures used in war games. This is the level we suggest for most armies, the miniatures look good and are affordably priced.
  • This level (depending on the miniature(s) and project in question) might include: dry brushing and washes.
  • Price Range: $15-25 per model*

 


 

Level 4: Commander

  • Miniatures at this level exceed the previous level in details and it is a perfect standard for Sergeant models to make them stand out and lower tier leaders/HQ models.
  • This level (depending on the miniature(s) and project in question) might include: dry brushing, washes, select edge highlighting, decals, and most details should be painted to some degree.
  • Price Range: $35-50 per model*

 


 

Level 5: Heroic Level**

  • Miniatures at this level are painted to an extreme detail. This level is ideal for leader/HQ miniatures, centerpieces, or anything you want to really stand out on the table.
  • This level (depending on the miniature(s) and project in question) should include most of the following: dry brushing, washes, select edge highlighting, decals, and all details should be painted to some degree.
  • If requested miniatures at this level may also have a higher detail basing option at the request of the client.
  • Price Range: $100+ per model*

 


 

Level 6 Legendary**

  • Miniatures at this level are given painstaking amounts of time to achieve an awesome finish. Miniatures painted to this level are best suited for army center pieces, renowned leader miniatures, and display miniatures. Ideally miniatures painted to this level will not be handled as much as others as to help keep the paint job pristine.
  • This level (depending on the miniature(s) and project in question) should include most of the following: dry brushing, washes, select edge highlighting, decals, and all details should be painted to some degree. Miniatrures at this level differ from the previous level in that many of the techniques used will be expanded upon, for example rather than one level of edge highlights we would go back with another more extreme level of highlights to add more depth to the miniatures
  • If requested miniatures at this level may also have/include more detailed/ornate basing options as well based on the requests of the client.
  • Price Range: $250+*

 



*Prices are subject to change. These are guidelines for what to expect when submitting a commission request. Complexity of the paint job requested as well as the size of the models and assembly also play a key factor in overall costs. If you opt to cut costs by assembling your models and shipping them in if we find that we are required to do an excessive amount of cleaning (mold line removal for example) additional charges may be applied.

**Models painted at these levels must be provided un-assembled. Given the degree of detail required a higher quality finish can be achieved by allowing us to paint the miniature in parts and paint them prior to assembly.

***Levels 2-4 also include basic basing (sand/flocking). Levelas 5 and 6 cover additional work for the basing options, however anything more extreme, detailed, and/or Intricate may incur additional costs (whether it be in labor or materials needed to achieve the desired effects).
