How to Get a Quote from Blue Table Painting

Here is the information we need to give a quote.  This update is for October and November 2012.

Relax and let go of your cares and worries.  We are here to serve you.
What is your first and last name?
What country are you from?

Rate your readiness.  Are you ready to set up your project right now?  If not, then when?  Or are you just looking for a ballpark quote?  It's all good.  We are here to serve you.

Models Are you providing them?  Would you like BTP to acquire them?  Or can you have them sent from a retailer?

We recommend

Assembly  Are we assembling your models or are they coming ready to paint?    Do you want magnetization of options?  Do you want conversion work?

Painting  Are you looking for "just get it done inexpensively"?  Or are you willing to pay more for higher quality?

Here is a cost comparison.  Let's say an infantry 28mm model costs $10 to paint at L3.  Here are how the other Levels usually play out cost-wise
L2 $7
L3 $10
L4 $15
L5 $20-40 (now you are into the higher "hero" levels
L6 $40-70
L7 $150-350

Levels explained.

Minimum order is $250

Games that we specialize in
Warhammer 40K
War Machine and Hordes
Dropzone Commander
Heavy Gear
Malifaux (and other Wyrd games)

Stay on the same thread (don't change the email subject line)
Don't pay in full.  Only pay the deposit.

Blue Table Painting Service Guide.  More information on the process.

On top of that, we sure know how to rock and roll.

Forge World Order Needed

Looking for a client to place a FW order for us.  You order the models and tell us the USD amount.  We give you a credit for service for that amount plus 20%.  So a $500 order would give you a $600 credit.  It's awesome!

Contact if you can do it.  The minimum is $400 USD out to make the Express ship minimum.  We need $2300 USD ordered but you can do part or all as you see fit.

Skaven and Chaos

First off, thank you for visiting this Blog.  I have now split off my personal blog on to a different location.  I intend to write every day.  We'll see if it happens.  See how I just pre-wimped out there?  "Trying"?  Bah!  I shall do it!

Today at the studio I got in the final models for the studio Skaven:  a Screaming Bell, Doomwheel, Warp Lightning Cannon, and a Hellpit Abomination.  I also got the Chaos book in, so I need to make a vid on that.

That means another Skaven army will be on the block soon.  2500+ pts.

1x Chieftan BSB
1x Grey Seer on foot
1x Grey Seer on Screaming Bell

Big Trade Incoming

I've got four boxes coming in this Tuesday.  If you want to lock it down with a sight-unseen purchase contact me at  So, what you see below is a temporary price very likely less than what it will be once we take pics.

UPDATE: this stuff has arrived at the studio and is looking good!

Otherwise it will be up in the webstore in about a week.  Some things here don't have a price on them.

You can make an offer or wait for them to go up.
