New Author & Commission Painting - The Wizard!


I am The Wizard. I do commission painting on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

As a founder of the gaming group, "Lords of the Garage", I'm a tournament regular. At tournaments I'm typically found in a Wizards Hat, with a 50-50 chance of being hungover.  (ah, the dreaded second day curse).
My good friend Kirby *blinks* has kindly invited me to contribute to this blog of his. I’ll be floating around doing painting articles. The first series of articles, entitled "It's like Magic!" will show how to paint tabletop worthy miniatures quickly and simply.

Anyway, here’s a basic price guide for those who are thinking of having some work done. Cost is per model, so you know exactly how much it will cost and what you are getting out of it. A more detailed price guide is up on my blog,

NOTE: These prices are more like a guideline rather than actual rules. Depending on the detail of the model / how long it takes, the prices may vary. Discounts for large numbers of models / entire armies. I should also point out that things like "Half and Half" will cost more, as it's essentially painting 2 models in 1. Email me at for a quote. I'm in the process of setting up some emails as well so we should get nicer addresses for our authors soon :).

Cost is per model.

I have a 3 tier system.

Tier one.
The most basic. Basecoat, wash, simple highlights.

Tier two.
2-3 highlights, washes/inking. Most of my work falls into this category.

Tier three.
The whole shebang. Not recommended for the whole army, maybe for a HQ or a Centrepiece unit.

Blacklining - Highly recommended for armoured troops and vehicles.

All tiers come with basic basing (1 colour sand with a bit of flock).
More advanced basing;
Sand/Rock mixture, highlighted and washed, scorched grass.
Snow - 2 stages of bicarb soda, patches of grass.
Anything else you desire!
Happy to do resin bases if supplied, they come under advanced basing.
