Made in us


As part of the new roll-out of changes to make the Dakka SwapShop nicer and easier to use, we are introducing the Dakka Swap Shop Painting Services List.

Rather than having individuals/groups periodically posting up new threads, we encourage painting services to post in this thread so that we can have a stable listing of painters. This helps keep Painting Services on the front page, and members looking for painters won't have to dig around the forum backlogs anymore.

That being said, this thread, similar to the Reputable Traders list, will hopefully provide Dakkites a list of reliable Painting Services for those seeking to have their armies/models well painted.

Here's how the Painting Services List will work:

Painting Services -
If you are offering a painting service, please post in this thread to let us know who you are and whatever other pertinent information you need to provide (ie, if you have standard prices/website/alternate contact info, etc). Please keep the information concise. I would recommend posting some (just need a handful, try to keep the image sizes manageable) examples of your painting so that users can get a feel for your abilities.

I will add your names to a list of Painting Services at the end of this post, periodically updating the list with any new services.

Others -
If you have had good experiences with any of these painting services in the past and would like to 'endorse' them, we ask that you post their user names in this thread. Simply post in this thread your name and who you endorse, like this for example (this is made up):

'Jin endorses RiTides'

No other information is needed, although if you would like, you may post the details/scope of the transaction (eg, 1500pt Ork army).

Periodically, I will go through this thread and add your endorsement under the painter's name in the Painting Services List(1st post). This way, users can judge which Painting Services provide good work and service. Note: Endorsements are not intended to suggest one Painting Service is better than an other. They are merely a way to provide testimonials/referrals to others seeking a Painting Service.

A few points though:
* This thread is for listing of Services and positive experiences only. Using Painting Services on DakkaDakka is at your own risk, with the admins and mods being NOT liable for anything that goes wrong. It is NOT their job to try and recover lost goods or money. There will be no 'Negative/Untrustworthy Painting Services".

* This is NOT a discussion thread. Simply post if you are offering painting services, or if you endorse a painter. Any other discussion will be deleted out.

* You may not endorse yourself. If another member does not endorse you, tough luck. You can suggest to them via PM that they endorse you in this thread but it is ultimately up to them whether or not they want to bother. Please DO NOT badger other users into posting into this thread.

* Please only post an endorsement after the transaction has been satisfactorily completed.

* Please wait until a Painting Service has been added to the thread before posting endorsements.

* If you have a low post count, I will delete your post - this is mostly an effort to have you join and become part of the Dakka Community rather than to simply use Dakka as a advertisement medium.

* Only postings from those offering Painting Services will be added - do not post up for someone else. Again, this is more to foster Dakka Community growth than anything else.

* Painters, please limit yourselves to up to 6 pictures, please.

So, Painters, if you wish to advertise your service, please post here! All others, if you are seeking painting services, take a gander here!

If you have any questions regarding this List, please send me a PM (reminder, however, that I will NOT help settle disputes).

Your friendly neighborhood SwapMod,

I'd like to endorse Hulksmash. His painting is as good as any I've ever seen, and significantly easier on the budget than any other painters I've seen.

*EDIT* He hasn't announced himself yet, but here's his gallery: http://hulksmashstudios.webs.com/

He's done quite a bit of painting for the community, he's cheap, and his work is astounding.

I'm a Canadian painter and converter. I am available for both converting and painting services. I take on small projects only. I don't have the time to paint an army. I'd rather focus on doing single models, or in some cases small units. Send me an E-mail via the contact button the website and I'll respond with 24 hours. Let me know what you are interested in having done, your budget and expected completion date and I'll see if I can do it for you.

There's a new painter in town and his attention to detail, use of various techniques and great use of subdued colors makes him a must for, at the very least, Ork players

Devinb1690 recently painted a Forgeworld Ork Warboss on bike to a fantastic standard. Not only is ever detail finely painted, the entire model has that worn grimey look which can be oh so hard to achieve on freshly painted ork models.

I once heard one of the most important things to paint on an Ork is their skin. Devinb1960 did a wonderful job with the skin tone as well as the highlights. In addition, the eyes are a fierce red which makes the model truly stand out as the ferocious boss it's meant to be.

The model can be seen in Devinb1690's gallery.

In short order I plan to utilize this painter's service once more for a large handful of lootas. His rates may be a little higher than the industry standard ($4 per infantry model) but what you get is a model above tabletop quality with absolutely no flaws, which has been one of my chief concerns with painting services after reading a number of articles about other commissions gone wrong.

If you play Orks, want a very well painted army which looks both natural and fierce, I highly recommend Devinb1690!

Hey all! I've been doing commision work (painting & conversion) off & on for quite a few years and it's always been something that I have enjoyed! Most of the hired stuff has been local, so I figured it's time to expand! LOL! My pricing depends on the level of detail you are looking for, but tends to run $6 - $8 per infantry ($7-$10 for termie sized stuff), vehicles/monstrous creatures are cost + %25-%50. My painting style tends to be well above table top. The best way to contact me is email - Bigtat2guy@yahoo.com, but I am on Dakka quite regularly also. Give me a discription of what you are looking for, as well as a phone # and I'll get back with you to work out the details. I have an extensive collection of GW minis, so if you would like to see any specific examples of my work, just let me know!

OK! I dropped a few new pics in here! thanks for looking!! They are MUCH bigger in the gallery, if you'd like to take a closer look!

Hi all,
Just offering my services as a painter for any miniatures 40k, fantasy or lotr. I have won several Games Workshop painting competitions and will paint everything to my highest standards...
I will also be auctioning high quality painted models on ebay, so if there is anything you are after let me know. If you have something in mind but you don't own it yet I'm even willing to purchase it to speed up the process of getting the job done. I haven't posted any images on here but to see my painting standards just look at my gallery entries.

Hey guys and gals!!! I would like to start taking in commission work.

Currently I have Two standard style of painting and that is Above Table Top Quality and Display.

Please have a look at my gallery in order to have a quick glimpse of my work:
Cool Mini or Not

Above Table Top Quality

This style of painting is intended to provide you with a top quality painting for your gaming models. Every technique (blending, Highlights, etc) is used and no small detail is compromised.

Display Pieces

This is reserved for your special characters in your army or that single model that is awaiting your display case. No matter what the case is, I implement every technique I know to achieve the best result I can. From multiple layering to intricate basing, your model will be looked after and made sure it will stick out from the rest.


I am open to any and all manufacturers of miniature out there. Though I am mostly familiar with Games Workshop, including Forge World, I have branched out and attempted to try many different miniature producers out there to expand my horizon.

If you require me to paint a miniature(s) from a different brand, it would be appreciated if you provide me with a link.


PM for pricing and/or click the following link for more detail.


I only currently accept Paypal as the form of payment.

I require the first half of the payment before the project starts. The second half will be required upon completion of the project and before shipping.

Shipping and Handling

Please click on the following link for more detail.

If interested or have any further questions please send me a PM.

Hello all, this is Devin Bieber aka devinb1690. I've started a affordable painting service here on dakkadakka.com called Imperial Wargames Painting. I've been painting models for nearly a decade and I think it's time to expand my talents to those interested in high/pro quality paintjobs/commissions.

I not only provide painting services but I also do conversions, magnetizing, and make custom bases. I have industrial lathe machines I can use to make circular bases of any size and material- from black plastic to granite. I can make hollow bases for filling w/ water effects and graduated/tapered bases.

As stated above I offer affordable rates, $4 per infantry size models. I have experience on everything from 40k to Fantasy, Orks to Skaven. My particular specialties are Orks, Vampire Counts, Nurgle/Deathguard and more. Feel free to shoot me a PM at any time day or night, I have a small team together to get your miniatures finished fast. I offer pics to you of my progress so you can stay up-to-date.

You may send me your models, built or on sprue, or pay me to purchase a model for you. Nothing is off limits, wether it be GW, FW, or Ultraforge, etc.
