Thank you for your interest in the White Metal Games commission painting service.
WMG is no longer accepting projects for 2020. During the COVID-19 crisis, we received an unprecedented surge of support from clients, resulting in a backlog of projects. That backlog “should” be caught up by January 2021.
While all of our painters are working remotely, many of our painters are currently on sabbatical taking time with their families. As such we simply have more work than we can keep up with at the moment.
There are many painters that could benefit from income during this period, and we hope that clients will use this opportunity to explore other commission services.
In 2021, WMG will be moving to a new commission system that, rather than pricing models on a case by case basis, will be based around time. So, for example, clients can book a block of time, usually reserved in 10 hours increments, for their project. That project is tracked in live streams or private streams, and fully viewable after the stream concludes.
At the conclusion of the block of time the client can decide how to proceed, either by allowing us to complete the work at the same rate per hour, or by having the models returned to them as is, or postponing the project until they are ready to purchase another block of time. That’s an abbreviated version of the full service which will roll out in 2021, and I would be happy to answer some specific questions before the service goes live in January.
Traditional commissions will only be available as follows in 2021:
- Already existing clients (for project of any size)
- Very small projects (less than five models)
- Very limited number of slots (will constitute approximately 10% of our total project load in 2021, with large projects expected to take 2-3 months to complete)
If you fall under one of the above criteria, feel free to submit your traditional quote request as normal.
We hope to launch many new services and ways to support White Metal Games in 2021.
