Hello guys!

Not sure 100% if this should be in this category. I was looking for a comission for a skitarii marshall to have as reference when painting my army.
I was thinking for a budget arround 50£ apart from the miniature itself, looking for a high standard painting (a bit more from tabletop but not collectors quality).

I have contacted a few artist but usually the rate is arround 200-300€ for the miniature ( I know it takes time, but I wasn't planning to pay that much, though I know it is worth it).

Any suggestions on artists or if anyone knows about someone, please let me know!

your price seems a little low, but the quotes you are getting for a single character small infantry model are ridiculous. At those prices that model should be painted to display/competition standard. Realisticly you should be looking at 80-120euro for a high playable table top standard character model.

Single model commissions are the worst case scenario for painters. You've got the same kind of time devoted to interacting with the customer and none of the painting efficiencies found by doing batch painting, on top of the higher standard that's expected for showpiece stuff.

I wouldn't be surprised is some of those quotes were a "I don't want this commission so I'll overcharge it and hope he says no" kind of thing. Unless the artist has nothing in the pipeline, small commissions are low priority.

You’re getting those quotes because of the amount of detail on the model.
Even at table top standard, I wouldn’t charge less than 150. All that detail takes time, and plenty of it. Thus, it’s going to be costly.
