If you have a specific artist in mind, please make this clear in your enquiry so it can be forwarded on. If you have no particular choice of artist in mind, we will between us make a choice as to who will take your commission on, based on who is available and interested in your task.
If you are an artist interested in working with us, feel free to contact us with good quality photographs of your previous work. We're interested in working with people who can consistently produce Competition Standard work of Golden Demon finalist level or better, or a consistent score for tabletop work of 7.5 or more on CoolMiniOrNot.
Drilling of weapon barrels
Decal Sheets (A4) - from £6
Due to quality issues with these models, a surcharge is necessary to cover time in chasing up replacements and/or making repairs. This is difficult to quote for without the first model in hand. In the case of problems, we will be in touch to let you know the situation. Cancellation of particular models from a commission is perfectly acceptable in these situations. We can source and clean up (strip / repair) metal versions through eBay on your behalf where these are available, and this will often be the cheaper option. Forgeworld's pressure cast models are usually of workable quality and so do not incur this surcharge. Please contact us for further details.
CONVERSIONS, SCULPTS AND CASTING
MAJOR CONVERSIONS: Conversions may be based on other companies' parts or products but are made as a provision of a service, as one-off pieces. Under this premise we can stay within the original piece's design motifs.
CASTING: When building models for production (casting) all parts must either be 100% our own work, or an original piece for which permission for duplication has been given. No use of design motifs particular to another company can be made. Parts sculpted over other companies' work and then cast and passed to us for duplication will also be rejected. Return cost of rejected parts is drawn from your deposit.
In short, please do not ask us to duplicate another company's products.
We do not do our own casting in house, and pricing from our caster may vary. Please email us for an estimate of cost if you want a job doing that involves casting.
Scratch-builds, Major Conversions and Sculpts:
10% of commission fee, non-refundable.
SECRET WEAPON MINIATURES DISCOUNT
In the case of a cancellation, a full or partial refund of the deposit and / or model cost and / or return of some or all of the miniatures can be made. The earlier you cancel in the process (ideally before we start!) the better for us, and the easier it is to resolve the situation. Scratch builds and sculpts or any other form of entirely bespoke models carry a non-refundable deposit.
1) No miniatures have been sent or purchased for the commission.
2) The client pays shipping for the return of miniatures sent or purchased for the commission.
Miniatures can only be sent back to the client in the following circumstances:
1) No work has been undertaken on the miniatures, or such work is at a state where it is of negligable value in the artist's opinion (eg just undercoated, or unfinished).
2) Any work that has been undertaken on the miniatures that is not of negligable value has been paid for - this can be drawn from the deposit.
3) That there is sufficent value left after (2) to pay for return shipping to the client, insured for the value of the commission (work + model cost + shipping).
