Consider me next on the list. That way if my soon to be ex-wife gets them, at least they'll be pretty..... :(

Ouch, Sorry to hear that Jason.  I hope it ends up amicable.   :(

I have a feeling it's going to be long, drawn out, and ugly....

Yikes, Southpaw... hope you can make it work out for you...

Topkick is first.  He is sending me about 10-14 miniatures (I assume 2 squads of Cybertronic).  If I finish them early and feel I can take on more I will take the next job on the list.

Here is the list so far:

1.  Topkick (Cybertronic 10-14 miniatures)
2.  ?

Start signing up... first come first served.  ;D

Wedge - did you deceide to use MadBrad's rates or? I have historically really liked your work and would like to enlist your services. You'll be the ONLY person other than myself to paint any minis in my collection...but there's some I'd just like a "Different take" on. Let me know, buddy. Thanks....

I haven't decided on the rates yet.  I am sort of using Topkick as a sounding board for that.  BTW, I am still waiting for him to send me the minis for me to paint...  hint hint!  ;)

Looking at Madbrad's break down...

I don't really paint anything to just table top standard.  I can't help myself.  I always try to paint to a showcase standard.  My problem is I can't throw 3-5 colors on a mini, add some minor detail and then leave it there.  I have to flesh it out as much as possible.

That being the case, I am probably going to charge around $5 per standard mini paintjob with a discount for larger squads.  Specialty miniatures and those of larger size will be dealt with on a case by case basis.

This is of course up in the air and negotiable.  That is why I am painting minis for TK and asking him to judge the quality and pay me based on that judgement.  I completely trust his integrity and will gauge future painting prices on his assessment.  I hope that will help everyone decide if they think I'm worth the expenditure.

My paints are waiting for your minis Topkick!

Sorry Wedge. I was waiting for you to give the word and then got focused on job hunting and haven't been by the forum as much as I used to. They will go out this weekend.

1. Topkick (August)
2. PhillySniper (September)
3. NoTrollNick (October)
4. Alpha (November)

I will update this list as I finish projects.  If I am quicker than I estimate I will move people up the list and/or add preferred customers in to my workload.  Thanks for the compliment Alpha.  ;)

I will be charging a $1 prep fee per miniature if I have to modify the miniature before painting.  Meaning...

If I have to glue the mini to the base (providing you give me all the bases... TK!), clean the flashing off the mini, and or prime it then it is going to cost a little extra.  Glue, razor blades and primer all cost money and time; hence, the extra $1 fee.  I did not mention this beforehand, so Topkick gets a free pass on this one since I didn't stipulate in advance.  You can avoid this fee by sending me your miniatures based, de-flashed, and primed.

Oh and for the shipping... the buyer pays for shipping both ways.  I will not charge anything until you receive the final product and are satisfied.

You owe me a base Topkick!  One of my poor unpainted Legionnaires is doing without thanks to you!  ;D

:(        :'(     Sorry Wedge     :(       :'(
Sorry Wedge and I kindly refuse your free pass. A buck apiece is fair and will be calculated into the final cost. Once the package is received I will evaluate them and pay you as discussed, plus an additonal buck per fig for prep, plus shipping, plus the base. I will then pay you in the manner you specify -- check, money order, postal money order, paypal. I would perfer not to send cash thru the mail but if you are willing to risk it then I can do that too.
