Painting Service

I am using a very nice person to paint some miniatures for me right now. I will pass the name of the service along once they are done with my stuff, as I don't need them distracted by hordes of orders.

Communication has been good, and I received by email the first photos of the first unit that has been completed. I know the bases are bare - I asked that they be left alone so that I could match to my other bases.

The skink all the way to the left is the sample I sent. I think the others match fairly well, don't you? So far, I am pretty happy with the service, which I was nervous about, as I have never sent off anything to a painting service before.
Obviously, these fellows are bound to be Gex from Venus, one of the two main species of Lizardmen on the Veiled Planet. There should be another ten of these, for a total of 20, plus some Gaters and a dozen 15mm British lancers in the order. I expect it to be done in about a month, and I'll post more when I get it. If the painter keeps this up, I'll be trumpeting their name both here and on TMP.

As little as I paint, I have never been able to bring myself to pay somebody else cash money to paint for me. I might bribe a friend with pizza, bear, XP, a hint on the next dungeon crawl, etc, etc, but not greenbacks.

They look good. May I ask what "quality" you had requested they be painted at?

She doesn't really do 'levels of quality' like the other services. that was one of the things I liked about her service. Plus, she's in the US of A. Bit mroe expensive for the paint job, but shipping is dead cheap compared to sending forty-ish figures to Sri Lanka or what have you.

I provided several samples for her, and asked her to paint to match, essentially.

Ah cool, so she is emulating your paint style? There used to be a nice older lady who ran one of the FLGS who would paint figs for a pittance because she loved it. I personally think she got tired of seeing the Warhammer players playing with raw lead.
