    For this level it was about 12,5 € per miniature :)

    Hard to say really. These miniatures were made from resin, so some work needed to be done with filling gaps and trying to place every element in right position. That took about 2 hours I guess. Then 3/4 hours to paint the base colors. And to finish this 4 miniatures took me about 8 hours? Something like that, I have splitted them into colors and worked on every color at all miniatures at once (so f.e. I picked red and painted red on all miniatures, then skin, blue etc. and did that in the same way as with red).

    Dunno its more about.. how effective you can be while painting? I mean its like this:
    I got commission so I plan everything. If I have bigger part of army or an army to paint at once, i pick color and do it on evey model. Lets say I have about 60 small miniatures (skinks fe). First planning, then base colors. Skin is blue so I paint every skinks skin with blue. Scales red - the same process. And with work like that i have base colors on 60 miniatures in one day. Then I am painting one test model to see if my plan looks good. If yes, one day for finishing skin another one to finish scales and other parts. Basically in 3 days, about 24 hours in total i finished 60 skinks on high level. So 2,5 hour per one skink :) and if you add more skinks, like 80, time will not be very different from that I ve spent already.

    Keep in mind - thats not my job :) i am doing this because :
    1) its my hobby and i love it
    2) i am treatin commissions kinda like challenges, doing my best every time, trying to learn new techniques so my painting skill will grow :)
    3) did I mention that I love that? :D

    Yes? In 9th age you can have them on ripperdactyls (in 8th edition that was possible too if I remember that correctly). Thats a mistake or? :D
