I was shocked when I bought a "Pro-painted" land raider. Although I got it half price (so I thought bargain) its taken hours to try and restore it so I can paint it. Already broken both doors at the front

I actually quite like the idea of the Harlequin Wave serpent even if it is a little sickening to look at, that is kinda the idea with the harlies

A lot of these are better than a craze by one studio on ebay a year or two ago where they would spray with AP primer base coat one or 2 details and then quickshade it. To then claim Propainted and sell at 6 times cost is simply insulting

Most of the time tyhe issue of PP is not the quality of the paint but the barmy prices

If there are any commission painters here who have been in the business for a while; what sort of price would one be looking at for various jobs on, say, a Space Marine squad of 10 men?

Depends on the quality you want. That can take 4 hours or 400.

As Djinn says, it depends on the level of painting you want done, I do a decent tabletop quality for 2 per mini for Space Marine sized models, which goes up with the level of painting and size of model. If its something big like a SoulGrinder then I'd speak to the customer and work out an individual price for that piece.

If you want a squad painted to display standard then its going to cost you but I would expect that to be something you would also spend a lot of time talking to the painter about and working out the price and paint job you're looking for.

I hate their work. They don't share notes or keep records so you end up with shit painted 5 different shades.

Had a buddy who airbrushed and dip shaded models with his own dip then did detail work with a brush, they looked so much better.
