The following is a basic price outline to give you a general idea of what you can expect if you consider hiring my services. I have outlined all of my most highly requested projects for your convenience below. All prices are subject to adjustments based on the exact commission request. For a more accurate price quote please contact me directly at chieflivegaming@gmail.com

 

Infantry Squads

Infantry prices reflect my work on squads of infantry models in the 28mm/30mm size. The low end of the price range reflects smaller infantry like grots or goblins, where the high end represents your more standard sized models such as Space Marines. Mounted infantry quotes are given on a per model basis, but usually start around $18/model for Level 1.

 

  • Batch Painting / Value Painting: $3-5 / model

    • The “let’s get these models painted and on the table as cheap as possible” option.
  • Level 1 – Regular Standard: $5-8 / model

    • 3 color or what is considered “tabletop standard” by most 
  • Level 2 – High Standard: $8-12 / model

    • Additional highlight layers and effects such as OSL, barrel heat bluing, drilled barrels, etc are added
  • Level 3 – Display Level: Hourly rate estimate, contact for a quote based on model request

    • The big tuna. When you have a centerpiece squad that you want painted to really turn heads, this is the option to go for. This is where freehand and custom conversion work comes in if desired.

 

Characters

This option is for your Hero models or named characters that you want given extra attention. This is the basic pricing I use for all characters in the 28-35mm scale. The different levels reflect the amount of brush time I put into the model. You can expect to see effects like OSL and barrel bluing at all painting levels where relevant on the model.

 

  • Level 1 – Regular Standard: $50 

  • Level 2 – High Standard: $80 

  • Level 3 – Display Level: $80+ Hourly rate estimate, contact for a quote based on model request

 

Small Vehicles / Monsters

Generally models like troop transports and smaller monsters fall under this category. Examples include Rhinos, Land Speeders, Dreadnaughts, etc.
  • Level 1 – Regular Standard: $40 

    • Basic airbrush panel highlights with a small amount of detail work. The “tabletop standard option”
  • Level 2 – High Standard: $70 

    • More detailed airbrush work and edge highlights added if desired. Magnetized weapon options,weathering, and battle damage are also added if desired.
  • Level 3 – Display Level: $100+ Hourly rate estimate, contact for a quote based on model request

    • If you really want your model to stand out from the rest, this is your best bet!

 

Large Vehicles / Monsters

Bigger vehicles and large monsters fall under this category. Examples include Land Raiders, Riptides, Greater Daemons,  etc.
  • Level 1 – Regular Standard: $75 

    • Basic airbrush panel highlights with a small amount of detail work. The “tabletop standard option”
