Commission & Studio Painting
I have been painting miniature figurines and scale models for about 35 years, mostly for myself, but I can now offer a commission painting service.

Please take the time to read what I guess you would call my "terms & conditions" below.
Feel free to contact me for a quote.
(Prices will be in Australian Dollars, so don't forget to convert to your local currency)
Prices will vary depending on complexity etc.
The Cost of Basing is extra, with preferred basing to be supplied by the customer.
I can also quote for painting of vehicles, artillery, terrain items etc.
Assembly of models is not one of my strengths, so I suggest pre-assembling more complex items.
Quotations do not include cost of figures themselves.
The customer must supply the miniatures/models or order them from a supplier and have them sent direct to me for painting etc.
Most figures are sprayed with Testors Dullcote or equivalent. Varnishing with gloss or satin acrylic varnish is also an option.
Shipping is at cost. Extra insurance can be arranged through Australia Post.
Payment is via PayPal, unless you are an Australian customer and wish to pay via direct bank deposit.
I am happy to tackle a multitude of periods and genres, such as Horse & Musket, Ancients, Moderns, Sci-Fi, Fantasy etc., - prices may vary depending on complexity and scale. Have a look through my blog archive/labels, for examples of my other work.
Please remember that this is a "hobby" for me at this stage, and I am not at present a "registered business". There could be times when I may not be able take on a commission due to "real life" issues such as health and family, or having too many other painting commissions already underway. My main aim is to produce quality painted miniatures rather than quantity - an artist, not an automaton :-) I can only accept work on the understanding that any times given are estimates and not actual deadlines.
Drop me a line at jacksarge777 at gmail dot com if you want any further information.
All the best,
