    For this level it was about 12,5 € per miniature :)

    Hard to say really. These miniatures were made from resin, so some work needed to be done with filling gaps and trying to place every element in right position. That took about 2 hours I guess. Then 3/4 hours to paint the base colors. And to finish this 4 miniatures took me about 8 hours? Something like that, I have splitted them into colors and worked on every color at all miniatures at once (so f.e. I picked red and painted red on all miniatures, then skin, blue etc. and did that in the same way as with red).

    Dunno its more about.. how effective you can be while painting? I mean its like this:
    I got commission so I plan everything. If I have bigger part of army or an army to paint at once, i pick color and do it on evey model. Lets say I have about 60 small miniatures (skinks fe). First planning, then base colors. Skin is blue so I paint every skinks skin with blue. Scales red - the same process. And with work like that i have base colors on 60 miniatures in one day. Then I am painting one test model to see if my plan looks good. If yes, one day for finishing skin another one to finish scales and other parts. Basically in 3 days, about 24 hours in total i finished 60 skinks on high level. So 2,5 hour per one skink :) and if you add more skinks, like 80, time will not be very different from that I ve spent already.

    Keep in mind - thats not my job :) i am doing this because :
    1) its my hobby and i love it
    2) i am treatin commissions kinda like challenges, doing my best every time, trying to learn new techniques so my painting skill will grow :)
    3) did I mention that I love that? :D

    Yes? In 9th age you can have them on ripperdactyls (in 8th edition that was possible too if I remember that correctly). Thats a mistake or? :D

    Hi hey hello.

    So I was playing "training" game with my friend in his house (and destroyed him ) while someone knocked on his door. That was a postman with miniature from him. Later he showed me this miniature... and I fell in love. So I took it from him and said I want to paint it for free. Here is a wip shot, tomorrow I will show you finished :)

    Interesting... but what is this evil looking creature? Looks lizardlike but also suspiciously chaosy... [senses approaching heresy]

    Those minis of yours look great. Many are a bit too colourful for my taste but you have some great skill there. :)

    Thanks a lot :)

    Thanks for your comment :)

    Jabberslythe and Ghorgon are comissions - so basically I ve painted them as my friend wanted to :) thats why Jabber is so bright, personally I would make it more grim, dark way with grey and black.

    I want my Lizardmen (or Saurian Ancients) army to be as bright as possible :D want them to stand out on battlefield, thats why I am using so many colors on every one :)

    I like that, the bright colours are natures way of telling predators that something is poisonous and deadly.
