Painting Level Bronze
This level is intended for those that want an army that looks great on the table, but isn’t intended for picking up for close inspection.
Whilst being the most affordable, a good use of this standard would be for ‘horde’ type armies, where you have lots of models that are viewed en masse, eg Orks, Tyranids, Imperial guard, 15mm historicals.
The painting is neat, effective, but simple. This typically includes at least 3 basic colours a basic wash and single highlight. I do not use a dipping technique.
Basing involving the use of stock plastic bases, usually the material supplied with the kits. Sand, putty, pastes, static grasses and painting transform these into solid but affordable basing in the clients chosen style.
Painting Level Silver
This is the most commonly requested standard. Great for where you also want to be able to pick up miniatures and admire them closely, but where they are still intended for play, not just display.
This is ideal for a smaller elite style army for example space marines, necromunda gang, Flames of war tank platoon.
Moving from Bronze to Silver, painting begins to include more highlighting, additional detail work, and washes become more targeted, with armour plates and the like raised in colour again afterwards. This may also include airbrush work, blending and weathering techniques.
Basing again typically used stock plastic bases, sand, putty, pastes, static grasses and painting. If you require third party resin bases, I can source bases to whatever style you need, and paint them accordingly.
Painting Level Gold
This is for those who want good looking miniatures designed for their appearance.
These tend to require significant additional working time to accommodate the larger quantity of detail involved.
Characters, vehicles and large monsters greatly benefit from this standard.
Significant increases in time allow for more detail, highlighting and colour gradients to be created where suitable. This may also include freehand, airbrush work, wet blending and advanced chipping and weathering techniques and object source lighting. An effort is made to ensure all aspects of the model have something that catches the eye.
Basing at this level includes resin bases, or custom built display plinths.
Assembly, Magnetisation and Conversion Work
You can either build your own models for me to paint, or I can build them up from the supplied kits.
If you have special requirements such as magnetised weaponry, or a conversion, let me know when you request a quote and I will work with you to realise your ideas.
This may include basic sculpting work or 'Kit Bashing' with the use of plasticard. Great if you want to show a Nurgle infestation or make make dem super Orky vehikhulzz.
