We offer three quality levels. Character quality for your most treasured characters, Tabletop quality for an immersive gaming experience with well painted figures, and Game quality for those figures you need in large quantity, or that you want to get onto the gaming table quickly.
Don’t see the figure you want? We can order in figures from a wide variety of manufacturers for you including the full line of Reaper, Dark Sword, Bombshell, etc. If it is currently available from the manufacturer, we can probably get it for you. Just ask us and we will tell you whether we can get it, for how much, and how long it will take to come in. There is a local Games Workshop outlet here in Halifax where you can buy your GW order for pickup, with no shipping charge. We also work with a local 3D printer with “Mad Skillz ™” and can have your project printed for you on demand.
How do you get painting service for figures that you already own or are not currently available in the online store? You can ship figures to us, or we can order them in for you. We offer a full range of panting services including assembly, basing, modifications and painting. Generally speaking, the larger and more complex your project is, the more time it will take to paint and therefore the more it will cost. Please use this contact form to ask us for a quote for your project.

Tabletop Quality. Ideal for player characters or special encounters in tabletop gaming. A 28-32 mm figure with a simple base (round, square or hex 1 inch plastic base), the basing and painting cost is $80 plus the cost of the figure, shipping and taxes. We also paint larger and more complex figures painted at this quality level. The figure will have multiple layers of shading and highlighting, eyes and all other small details will be painted, the base will have texture and will be painted. The figure will be coated with a protective matte finish. Figures at this quality level would meet the standard for a Silver Medal in an Open System model competition.
Game quality figures. Figures which are painted just enough to play games with. They will be painted with basecoats and one layer of wash. They will not usually have new bases added. Depending upon the complexity of the figure, small details like eyes will not be painted. The cost of painting varies with the size and complexity of the figures, but typically is $20 per single 20-40 mm figure. Volume discounts and rates for larger figures at this quality level are available. The figure will be coated with a protective matte finish.
Conversions Conversions cost a flat rate of an additional $20 per conversion for most 20-40 mm figures. For example, switching out weapons. Conversion of larger and more complex figures are available and we are up for any challenge. We routinely swap weapons, sculpt cloaks and hoods, even tentacles and eyes. We even sculpted a beholder!

In addition to the other three quality levels available, for Warhammer players offer an additional quality level called Game Plus. This takes the standard Game Quality finish and adds more detail, brighter colours and enhanced basing. Particularly for armies, this quality level will give your army an standardized look while also being painted to a good standard. The Salamander below is an example of the Game Plus Quality. If a trooper would cost $20 at Game Quality, it will be $40 at Game Plus, $80 at Tabletop and $160 at Character Quality. This is for figures up to 40 mm tall. Larger and/or more complex figures will cost more.
