Recent order


Got a big painting order today, it will be a challenge to assemble, some minis I see for the first time)
Will keep posting the building stages here

Thanks!


I never had complains about miniature quality, and no rants because of hard assembly.. but sometimes I'm in rage. Yeah, I know I must pin every joint, and cut a ton of mold lines, just cant's stand it if there's too much. Those newer 5-6 part mechs are very difficult to build, and why the heck some are so huge and heavy? Have you seen a Kraken lately? You could kiil, throwing it in someones forehead. New Warhammer, Marauder IIC, Onager...why?
Joints..is it hard to make a little sticking rod everywhere where is a connection? And what's with those round sockets? There's no way the arm or leg would hold in place without a pin. I don't want to mention awkward poses here. Another question are the TINI parts on protomechs, those small gun barrels, arms, wings and stuff. PAIN! 
That's why I collect only older models, 3025-50 era, miniatures look nicer, are smaller, have 1-3 main parts, and mostly good poses.

Introduction

Hello everybody!

Welcome to my hobby group, here you can follow me as I work and learn, diving into this wonderfull world of paints, brushes and metal/plastic figures.

I do pro miniature painting services worldwide, working with Battletech miniatures most of the time.
Please consider my offer, when looking for good quality. I'm reasonable, and maintain clear relationship with customers.

Please PM me for prices and shipping, that's individual :)

My work includes all prep work you could imagine, but would need additional time investment:
1. Assembling, cleaning the mold lines, filling gaps, basing, reposing, modifying, repairing imperfections and pinning, and so forth. All that work that comes along with pewter minis.
2. Priming with quality enamel spray primer.
3. Painting (I use Vallejo Model Color paints, washes and primers)
4. Basing
5.Priming
6. Shipping out to you safely wrapped via Global Express, priority mail etc..
 
Thank you all for interest!

The standart price for my service is 35$ per miniature + shipping. I pay the shipping in case I get an order for at least 4 minis and more. Also, I drop the price with the miniature count
   
Thank you all for interest and subscribing! Please follow my blog for more news, projects and pictures of my artwork. You can watch my thread on LotB here and see my feedback

So, moving to miniatures I have painted in several years. Please, don't judge the photo quality, sometimes I had to make just quick shots, and had no time to make better before the minis went to their owners. I promise to make better pictures with further works:)

Check other posts for more pictures and updates. I will keep the Introduction post always on top.
Please, enjoy!

If you like what you see and want to hire me to paint a nice battle camo on your miniatures, please feel free to write me at whitarmusic@gmail.com

Gray Death Legion

I love Gray Death Legion novels! And it is my aim to collect and paint up all 12 mechs of that famous mercenary company. I made a little improvement, and instead of another Shadow Hawk added a Catapult. I decided GDL needs another distance fire support:)
They are the stars of my collection, all unseen designs, along with house Davion army I assemble in short bursts. You can see those in my first post.
Here are some GDL mechs, hope they'll keep you excited for more:)
I go to the mail office this week to get the two missing mechs, paint those, and the whole company will be complete!
This time I'll make good pictures with an improvised light box.

Thanks!
