How the painting service works:
You send the miniatures, we spend time painting your miniatures, we return the miniatures. Simple.

Okay, so nothing is quite that simple...

First, you're probably keen to see what all the fuss is about!

Once you've had a look there and know we're worth your time, your next question is probably 'shut up and tell me what it costs!' Okay, not a question, but a valid point.

Pricing for painting miniatures

Bear with us as we get together some pricing and examples for this section. In the meantime, you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page to ask for a price.

Display Standard? Tabletop Standard? What's that about?

We like to keep it simple, so we usually paint to three standards.
BASIC STANDARD PAINTING is to get models painted, quick and easy.
TABLETOP STANDARD PAINTING is to rake in the compliments on the tabletop.
DISPLAY STANDARD PAINTING is for coveting on the shelf (and blowing opponents away on the tabletop!).

Our most budget painting option, Basic Standard, is intended to get large numbers of models painted quickly. Low price, high volume, working best for simpler infantry. This is a good way to get things 'tournament ready' on a budget. Usually this consists of at least three colours and a shade.

The mid range Tabletop Standard is the perfect option if you want your miniatures painted to a quality that you'll be proud to lay down on the table. Unlike other miniature painting services, though, this doesnt mean we aim for the miniature to simply look okay 'at a distance'. Our Gaming Standard miniatures benefit from an undercoat, basecoat and several layers of shades or highlighting, the equivilant of a much more expensive option from other painters.

Our award-winning Display Standard miniature painting brings your miniatures to life. You'll be left with figures that'll blow your opponents away on the battlefield and look awesome on the shelf between battles. The whole figure is shaded and highlighted in numerous layers with every detail picked out. Miniatures painted to this quality have won competitions.

Both standards of miniature painting are finished with several layers of matte varnish, resulting in a tough, protective coat that'll keep your horde safe from the wears and tears of army life.

For hundreds of examples of miniatures painted to both standards, see our miniature painting gallery.

On to how it all works

  • Step one: You let us know you'd like your miniatures painted. Do that through our price list, or our contact form at the bottom of the page.
  • Step two: A designer contacts you to work through any questions (yours or ours), and discuss any aspects of the miniature painting project. This includes informing you of any of our fantastic offers which can currently grant you a saving on your painting project!
  • Step three: With the project and price determined, you pack up and post your miniatures to us. We send an invoice for the first 10% of the fee.
  • Step four: We receive the miniatures. We unpack the miniatures. We check everyone is accounted for. We make any repairs (Spears etc are fragile and accidents may happen in transit. We expect this and make the neccessary repairs and would appreciate the same courtesy when the figures find their way back to you!) An estimated completion date is sent to you.
  • Step five: We pass the miniatures over to the painters, who descend like a flock of rabid buzzards.
  • Step six: You receive photographs of the first miniatures painted to confirm the colour scheme is as desired.
  • Step seven: Painting continues once the paint scheme has been approved.
  • Step eight: Once painting is complete we send photographs for approval. Once approved, we send the bill and, once the final payment is received, pack and send your painted miniatures back to you.
  • Step nine: You receive the miniatures. You open the miniatures. You drool over the painted figures. You send the army to do your bidding.

Payment for painting is collected 10% up front as a non-refundable deposit for materials etc. The remainder is collected after the painting is completed and approved, prior to posting them back to you.
