Oh you mean you want someone to paint figures for you. If I took a commission it would depend on the amount of my time it would take to complete.

Not here, on an open forum. There are many contributing factors.

Which figures are they.

Have I done them before (do I have references and paints used).

Do I need to buy reference books.

At minimum wage hourly rate the cost would be prohibitive.

To be honest you would be better off saving your money, his painting is not very good.

In what way is it not very good? They look brilliant to me. Also Why would somebody buy airfix figures for someone else to paint. He could just get metal figures for in the end, less

Why is my undercarriage stuck to my thumb?
