Default Looking for a commission modeller and how to get one?

Hello all.

I know this is in the wrong place, but I posted a request/ad for a commission worker as I have a model I wish to commission (really? no?)

The post was never put up (had to wait for a mod to do this, I waited...several months I do believe).

So Here I am asking.

Looking for someone UK based as paying a fortune for unreliable shipping is not on my agenda in this lifetime.

Pointers/help/etc please y'all!

I would email some of the people that advertise in the commision services section and talk with them there are several in the UK. Good Luck

Sounds sad but, I have tried that.

Ah well, if there's no takers then I shall just slice my fingers up and try myself!

Why does my 3000th post have to be one of self pity

I'm not a designer or good with any form of building models but given that this is intriguing, can I ask what you're trying to have built?

But of course.

This, with some minor changes:

But for 40k. Couple of things I would like different, but nothing overly demanding. I'm just sick of the sight of my attempt at it.

Admittedly, that is cool and is technically 40k (though for some reason on a square base). Have thought of perhaps converting http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Warhamme...SPECTRES_.html with Eldar weapon bitz?

It's a forgeworld collectors. It stands about 4 inches high sadly.

I have looked at those Spectres before with this in mind, and sadly no luck.

I have an idea on how to do it, but I know getting someone with actual talent means it'd be 1000& better than anything I could create.

Curse you Talent!

I'd need a year or so to practice on my Necron/Nids before I'd even think of offering services. Best of luck though Orochi ;)
