Blue Table Painting Weekly Project Update

  • Thursday 11/19/2015 I'm getting projects ready to go into Assembly so be sure your Instructions sheets are in.  I am very pleased to say that only seven projects still need materials in, which means that the project flow is going a lot more smoothly.
  • Tuesday, I took a day off and now I'm back. Bretonnian mega-project is now done and I'm turning to project prep (getting projects into assembly).
  •  I am  back and in the saddle, Monday at 9am.  Answering emails!  Karina is due in today to do packing.
  •  I am out of town for the weekend and answering emails.  Ready to set up new projects.
  • Email is back up and running
  • Please use to contact me!
  • Karina came in tonight (October 26) and packed up like twenty packages. I'm working on Instructions tonight to get projects ready to go into assembly tomorrow
  • Three new painters on a trial week has turned into one new hire.
  • Over thirty packages went out the last few days!

Waiting for Painting
This is currently a slow-down area.
Your project is secure at the studio.  Your project will be selected by a painter who is excited about your project in 1-14 days.  On occasion, because of the specialty nature of a project, it takes longer.  For example: your project might need a specific painter or need special skills that only a few painters possess.  In ideal conditions there should be no projects lingering here for more than seven days.

Instant Gratification
If you have a project in the pre-assembly stage or "unusual circumstances" and would like to just switch out for an existing item that I  have on hand (ie drop your project and just have me send you something I have ready), let's do that.  Take the amount that you paid (in cash) and give yourself 10% bonus on top of that.  You will come out smelling like a rose.

Convergence Army 80 pts painted $520
PHR collection NIB plus extras $900

Zombicide mega collection (300+ painted zombies) with many OOP kickstarter kits $2900

Lizardmen army (170x infantry plus Stegadon) $950
Heavy Gear mega-magnetized collection $950
Dropzone Commander painted Shaltari army $1200
Dropzone Commander painted UCM army $1200
Dropzone Commander painted Scourge army $1200
Fungus Nids (1x Tervigon, 20x Termagants, 2x Venomthropes) $420

Double Your Money
OR convert to a coupon credit at +20% good for six months.  So let's say you paid $400 cash for your project as a deposit, that would get you a $480 webstore credit which would in turn buy around $800 worth of stuff.

Completed 2015
As a matter of interest here are projects we have completed in recent months.  We have finished over 1500 projects since Spring 2013.  Lifetime BTP has finished 6000-8000 projects, a record unheard of in this industry. This is also interesting because you can also see the types of armies we are painting, a reflection of the hobby as a whole?

Old posts
  • Interviewing new artists, three interviews so far this week with trials of talented new artists coming in for BTP training tomorrow 10/08
  • BTP is up and going strong.  TONS of packages getting packed up today.
  • BTP will be closed from now until Friday, October 2nd.  All projects are on track for completion.  Artists have two weeks of projects to work on.  Project Update web page is current.  I have a staffer collecting packages.
  • If you want to set up a whole army project, Skype bluetablepainting
  • We are backlogged in shipping so just hold tight.  Packergirl Tamie is out for the week, but US residents will get their deliveries in the September 21-25 range.
  • *old posts at bottom
  • Answered a ton of emails over LD weekend, down to about 18 all told which is amazing.
  • Time to hire a new painter.
  • Email count 33 Main, 9 Projects, 3 Inquiries.  This is a VERY low count.  I am catching up!
  • Please don't send cases or transports with your models.  There is an extra charge to ship them back as they are so bulky.
  • Monday August 10th.  I have a personal life now, yay for me.  If you have a project and would like to switch it out for an existing army or collection that BTP owns of equal or slightly higher value (your favor) I want to do that.  My goal: get the project load from 105~ to 60.
  • Friday August 7th- I am answering people who want quotes for the next three days.  Steve our old inquiries guy will be answering as many of the fifty or so inquiry emails on Sunday as he can.  Welcome back Steve!
  • Active artists: 12
  • BTP historically finishes 100-170 projects every quarter (three months)
  • Right now, the status at BTP is that there is a lump of project going into assembly.  This will get smoothed out as it takes the assemblers 1-2 weeks to get it all done.
  • If your project does not appear on the list, please contact UNLESS you have sent your deposit within the last eight days in which case you should just rest easy.
