Commission Painting - Three Painting Levels to Choose From

Here at Rabid Dog Studios, we can turn around your painted models for you in double-quick time for 'Tabletop Quality', or we can take our time and paint them to 'Display Quality', or we can REALLY take our time on them and paint them as if they were the last miniatures on Earth! This is 'Competition Quality'.

Our pricing structure is purposely simple and transparent. For Tabletop Quality the overall cost - excluding postage and packing - is 3x the current RRP. For Display Quality the overall cost - excluding postage and packing - is 5x the current RRP. For Competition Quality the overall cost - excluding postage and packing - is 7x the current RRP. Postage and packing details are available upon request, as the cost of insured items varies considerably dependent on location and box weight.

All payments are made via Paypal and details will be sent upon request.

Rabid Dog Studios is able to provide your models at current RRP (quote upon request) or you can send your own models to them at your own postage costs. Upon approval of a Rabid Dog Studios quote 50% of the painting quote and 100% of the model purchase cost (if the model is not sent by you) is to be paid. The remaining 50% of the painting cost and postage & packing cost is to be sent via Paypal before the painted models will be posted, upon your approval of the final progress photos, which will be sent to you once the models are finished.

Competition Quality

This is the highest level of painting that we offer here at Rabid Dog Studios. Models painted at Competition Quality will have the minutest details included and truly be a piece that not only you, as the owner, but us as the painter, will be immensely proud of. Models painted to this quality will be painted as if we were entering them into national competition. Dependent on the complexity and scale of the piece, we envisage a lead time of around 4 weeks for a single, humanoid character model and you shall receive 4 progress photo updates during the painting process.

Display Quality

This is the second highest level of painting that we offer, and the most popular choice. Models painted at Display Quality will have the details included that you wouldn't see on a Tabletop Quality model. Models painted to this quality would perfectly at home mounted on a plinth (details given upon request) or even contained with a display case or bell jar (again, details given upon request) as a diorama. Dependent on the complexity and scale of the piece, we envisage a lead time of around 2 weeks for a single, humanoid character model and you shall receive 2 progress photo updates during the painting process.

Tabletop Quality

This is the most basic level of painting that we offer, but please don't be fooled. The quality of Rabid Dog's Tabletop Display still blows a lot of other painted miniatures out of the water! Models painted at Tabletop Quality will still have details included, but painted to a lower quality. Models painted to this quality will be well worthy of anyone's armies. Dependent on the complexity and scale of the piece, we envisage a lead time of around 1 week for a single, humanoid character model and you shall receive progress photo updates during the painting process.
