Top Reasons to Go with a Well Established Commission Service (And Not a Cheaper Hobbyist)
These days potential clients are have many choices when it comes to selecting a painter for their next project. There are literally thousands of individuals out there advertising themselves as a commission miniature painters.
Even assuming they are a good (or even great) painter , there is a BIG difference between a painter for hire and a studio. It’s a bit like comparing a professional lawn care service to the kid that mows your grass down the street. Our business models are simply not the same.
Here are a just a few of the many reasons you should consider going with a professional studio:

Expedient Turnaround: With several dedicated, full time painters in house, we can turn around projects that would take a single person studio months in a fraction of the time. In some cases our turnaround is less than a month!
One Stop Shop: Our studio offers a variety of services, not just painting. Among the services we offer are assembly and kitbashing/conversion, terrain and display boards, consignment, and more! We can also furnish our clients with gaming aids like rulebooks and dice! So you don’t have to shop around!

Practical (shipping) Experience: We ship thousands of models every year. There is nothing worse than receiving a broken model out of the box. While lots of painters have experience painting, when it comes to shipping they may be less experienced. Don’t let a bad shipment ruin a good experience.

We listen actively, and try to honor our client’s every request when possible. If a client receives their models and has constructive feedback, we try to work with them to resolve the problem amicably, up to and including returning their models for touch ups as needed.

We offer credit for referrals and reviews, and even offer consignment services for when you are ready for a new collection.
