Commissions - how much to charge?

Hey - I thought I'd get some peoples' opinions about this one. I'm starting to get people (here and elsewhere) asking me if I do commissions and would consider doing stuff for them; apart from the obvious worry of not being good enough to make whatever it is they end up asking for, the big issue I have is that I haven't the faintest clue how to work out how much to ask for something like a commissioned sculpt :)

So...any and all advice would be welcomed. There are a few things that people have asked me for that would actually be quite interesting to make, but as busy as I always seem to be I don't want to spend ages making something for someone for a pittance. But then again, neither would I want to overcharge...

Look at it another way. What is your time worth and how much effort do they want put into each mini. I am in the ship repair business and do estimations for repairs all the time. There is a huge difference between a functional job and a rolls royce job. I would work it out based on how much time they want you to spend doing it. And whatever you do svart don't undercharge. Your work is genius. You might be able to do some functional gs work on a squad of csms in a couple of hours. On the other hand one of your current oblits would take considerably longer.
