Many people come to my website, and after seeing so many painted miniatures in my galleries (Images in the gallery include miniatures already sold on Ebay and miniatures for orders for people, or things out of my own collection, excluding those shown on my Ebay shop)they begin to wonder if it would be possible to place a commission . So I decided to put here a little FAQ.

“What covers my Work” 2017-07-18T08:22:07+00:00

Remove flash and mold lines, glue pieces together (pin parts like arms,weapons if needed and if possible to do it).
Pin the miniature/s to resin bases (included on price) if is possible to remove them from his original base. Sometimes its
impossible do this without damage the miniature. If this happens I will glue it on a 30mm base and use green staff.
Add static glass,sand,snow,etc..
I use mostly Reaper Master Paints ,Vallejo paints,Scale75,…
Always applied with brushes.
My techniques involves traditional methods like blending,washes,glazes,NMM,simple freehand ,pigments (if needed) and future techniques I will discover.
Usually I apply 2 coats of Matt Varnish with brush on miniatures(so I am sure every part of the miniatures it is really covered),this is enough to play or use it without problems. If you want an extra coat of gloss varnish before apply Matt varnish please let me know

What commissions works are you able to take? 2017-07-18T08:22:36+00:00

Need a special character or some miniatures very well painted and ready to play? No problem. I can
do that for you at great quality.
I absolutely love to paint miniatures and specialized in 20-40mm Fantasy,Sci-Fi,Modern…etc…

“Shipping” 2017-07-17T15:16:54+00:00

I send the miniature/s very well protected: use double wall cardboard boxes for big orders(These cardboard boxes provide additional strength and durability and resist crushing when stacked) and put the miniature/s between unbreakable foam blocks covered with bubble plastic(The blocks hold their shape and rigidity) .
Europe

Usually the shipping cost for 1 miniature or 2 are around 10$. More than 3 wil cost 15$ (until 500grs)

Rest of the world

Usually the shipping cost for 1 miniature or 2 are around 12$. More than 3 wil cost 20$ (until 500grs)

 

When we both agreed that the work its finished and after I received your payment, I will post the item/s to you (usually next laboral day) by Priority International Letter ( Users can trace delivery status ).

International Customers: Many countries have a Value Added Sales Tax VAT, which is charged when an item crosses into their border. VAT is charged in addition to applicable duties. It’s the buyer’s responsibility to know how much tax and duties will be charged.

I am not liable for what happens to the models after you get them. You assume all risk of owning and handling the models

“Payment” 2017-07-17T15:17:53+00:00

I only accept Paypal ,you dont need a paypal account to pay me. You can use Visa, Mastercard and Discover through a Paypal invoicing that I´ll send after both (you and me) agreed with the finished project.

I am dedicated to painting each and every model to the best of my ability and I do not rush my jobs to get them finished quickly. To motivate myself to maintaining high standards and to meet all deadlines, I only accepts payment on completing my works with no deposit required on most commissions.

I will mail according to Paypal information unless notified changes by customers.

Please make sure that your information shown in Paypal is correct.

“Do you ship overseas?” 2017-07-10T18:37:35+00:00

Yes,almost all my customers are from around the world (commissions and ebay purchases).

“Levels of painting & Prices” 2017-07-17T15:14:53+00:00

I only offer one standard level of painting and that is my best!
Cant apply a base coat ,do one wash for shadows and apply one highlight and say here you have it finished, that for me is not a nice paint work.

The prices doesn’t include the cost of miniatures if purchase is needed

Prices for miniatures like Reaper,Darksword,

Hasslefree,etc…

My commission rate its 95$ for miniature (28-42mm)
Single model mounted (Horse or comparable) 140$

Prices for miniatures like Foundry,

Saga,..etc..

My commission rate its 65$ for miniature (28-42mm)
Single model mounted (Horse or comparable) 80$

“Scheduling a Project” 2017-07-17T14:58:33+00:00

There is not a minimum (you can send 1 miniature without problems), and maximum…,well I prefer small number (maybe 10-15 for month), from one customer,because I have steady clients that send me miniatures every month.
But if you want send to me a big amount of miniatures to save shipping cost is not a problem,thou we will split them between a few months (if there are so much).

“Colour schemes” 2017-07-17T14:56:05+00:00

You choose what colours want for your miniatures.The hair colours,skin,ropes,etc..

 

Provide me with as much information about your order and painting preferences as possible.

If you want a certain painted miniature or colour scheme copying,I am happy to do this and although I can guarantee an excellent paint job cannot guarantee it will look exactly the same,every miniature painter has his own tricks to paint miniatures.
Many people send me links or email pictures of what they want copying.

All my work is put on the website. If you like what you see in my Galleries, you will like what you receive. That is what you are buying. Iam proud to display my work.

I am dedicated to painting each and every model to the best of my ability and I do not rush jobs to get them finished quickly. After I feel the project is complete, I will take photos and send them to you for your approval. At this point you can request minor alterations or speak to me about any concerns you may have.

The customer(you) may either provide the miniatures themselves, or I will purchase them for the customer.

If I purchase the miniatures (always contacting before do it with you to compare
prices&shipping cost), I require cost of the models in addition to the painting services.
