Looking for commission painter

Postby Lavallin » Fri Jul 28, 2017 9:04 pm

I recently took delivery of my Reaper Bones 3 delivery, and one of the centrepieces is a massive, massive dragon. This far exceeds my painting abilities to do it credit, so I'd like to get someone to do a really proper job on my behalf.

The model is "Ma'aldrakar, Dragon Tyrant" (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/ ... mpilation/), a serial-numbers-filed-off version of Tiamat - i.e. five heads, each representing a different colour of Chromatic Dragon.

What I'd be looking for:

-Assembly, including greenstuff, cleanup if required, and probably pinning - ideally keeping some bits e.g. wings removable for transport, but subject to feasibility
-Painting: to "high gaming" or lower-end display quality. Nice enough to sit on a cabinet and look imposing, but I don't necessarily need competition-winning painting. Aside from the five heads, no particular constraint regarding colours, basing, etc - happy to discuss.
-Varnish. It would, in theory, be a gaming piece (although any players who meet Tiamat are either ludicrously overpowered, or about to die), so would need to withstand moderate use.

Does anyone either want to express an interest, or do you know anyone who might be interested? I'm more than happy to meet up and let you take a look at the model before asking anyone to commit to a quote.
