Hey all...

I'm running out of space for more games, but I'd like to keep throwing money away on this crazy hobby. shake

One thought that came to mind would be to hire someone to paint the miniatures for some of my favourite games. Heroquest would be an example of a game with a lot of pieces, but also I have games with a small number of pieces that I would like to get painted such as Drakon and Isla Dorada. I doubt I have the talent and I certainly don't have the time to try it myself. However I have no idea what kind of costs would be involved for projects like these. Are there any painters in my area who could weigh in?

I was wondering the same thing myself. Was thinking of picking up Alvin & Dexter, but hate how the figures aren't colored. If you find anyone good, be sure to let us know!

I suggest checking www.coolminiornot.com or http://www.chestofcolors.com/ or another site dedicated to miniature painting. There are lots of studios willing to do custom painting. I'm in the right area but have more then enough minis to paint of my own.

Hey, I don't discriminate. If a very small person wants to paint my miniatures, I'm cool with that.

I paint competition quality and no less, if you're interested.

The cost will often depend on how fussy you are about the level of the paint job. It will also vary depending on the amount of time needed to complete a job. Hero Quest has a fair amount of miniatures but is by no means overbearing. Painting a box of Battle Lore, on the other hand, will probably cost a fair amount no matter what level of painting you desire.

Hi Brant, I checked out your site. The painting is gorgeous, but I think the price is out of my range and I don't have the need for such high quality work. Thanks anyway though!
