Setting up a Project

Hey all. Here is how to set up a commission. I have updated this. Notably, I got rid of the old Tank Factory special and replaced it with the "get one painted, get another painted free" type special from recent months (minimum three pairs = six vehicles). That one is a better deal and more accessible.

Also note the Trade-in deal also allows you the option to just get regular kits (not assembled or painted) shipped to you, as well as getting your models assembled/painted. See below for details.


Thanks for your inquiry.

Getting a Quote
As a general rule of thumb it costs $500-1200 per 1000 points in an army. This is if we provide everything (models, assembly, and painting). This varies based on a number of factors, mostly the quality of painting you choose. If you just want painting only (ie you have your models already assembled) the cost is about half of that.

Attached is a spreadsheet outlining all costs of your project. Or you can download a generic sheet for your army here.

Here is a video on how to use the spreadsheet. You do not have to fill this out yourself. I will be happy to work from an emailed list.

You have three options to get a quote:
A) Fill out the sheet yourself This spreadsheet will auto-calculate all costs associated with your commission. If you are providing and/or assembling your own models you will naturally zero out those totals.
B) Send a list of what you’d like done. What models need assembly? Cleaning? What models are you providing? What models would you like us to provide? I’ll send back a detailed quote.
C) Call me and I will set everything up over the phone with you. 801 372 8545.

We have several specials available. Only one can be applied.
1) Level 2—models can be given a basic paint job. Save 30% off painting.
2) Artistic License—we decide completely how a project is painted and based. Save 10% on painting.
3) Combine Level 2 and Artistic License. Save 35% off painting
4) Tank Factory—Get three tanks painted and get three painted free. See below for details.
5) Tradein—trade in your current range (in print) kits and models as part of your payment. This can be combined with other specials. Details below.

Tank Factory Special
Here are the details-- they must be in pairs. There must be at least three pairs (six vehicles). You can't have a two chimeras painted regular price and then get two baneblades done for free. But you could have a chimera and a baneblade done then get two more of the same done free. Tanks don't need to be the exact same to count as a pair, just similar (so you could pair up a Hellhound and a Chimera).

All the vehicles in a project need to be roughly the same color scheme. Doesn't apply to Forge World. Must ask for the special by name before the project is underway. Normal assembly rates apply.

Trade In
Here are the trade-in rates for Spring/Summer 2009. I'm offering service credit in trade for models (you can also get kits, see below). Read this completely as I have recently improved almost every aspect of this program! .
You can usually get a much better deal going to the secondary market (local shop, ebay) on your own. However, the advantage of trading in with us is that you are likely to be able to unload disparate items without a lot of hassle (e.g. finding various buyers, setting up payment, lots of minor questions). .
If you want to trade in, we need a list with retail values and condition (e.g. new in box, new on sprue, assembled, primed). The rates below are a multiplier. If the entry says 0.30 it means you would get $30 for $100 worth of retail items. Just take the retail total and multiply it by the number. You do not need to figure this out; you can just send in your list of stuff to .
In the past I have only allowed for half or less of a project to be paid in credit this way. But for the time being I am lifting that restriction. . I just know there's someone who goes out to their garage, surveys the mass of unpainted models, sighs then turns out the light. This program will hopefully allow someone with the "white primer horde" to finally show up with a painted army. As an added bonus, your models will get a good home where they will be painted and loved. .
We don’t need painted figures. Exception: if they only have a little bit done with them; not too thick, not too many layers. Primed models are OK, again not too thick. .
You can also get a credit of at least $10 to help with your shipping costs. This is on request. .
If you want to trade-in figures, but don't have a project ready, that's OK, I will confirm your total and then you will have it on tap for when you want to use it. .
This trade-in is recorded as a payment on your project. It is non-refundable except at our discretion (eg you can’t refuse the project and then get your trade-in amount refunded as cash). Trade-in can be applied to cost of models, assembly or painting as you wish. This means you can also just get models sent to you (this is limited to models that are commonly available, eg not Forge World)..
Generally, we only need in-print models that are currently in production. .
These rates and conditions may change so it is recommended to check in every once in a while. I am likely to update the numbers about once a month. The plan right now is to update every first of the month. Fairness is the guiding principle. .
