First “Commission”?

Written by  on October 14, 2015 

A member of the Reaper Miniatures’ Facebook group offered up seven miniatures in payment for painting one miniature for him. This was a general offer and he had several he wanted painted and quite a few to give away.

I looked at the pictures of what he was offering and what he wanted painted. Nothing in particular jumped out at me. I told him to pick my seven and his one at random and I’d gladly paint it for him. Here is what I ended up with:

There are a few Reaper and a few Ral Partha miniatures in there. The oldest date stamp I could read was 1988. Talk about some old school miniatures!

So, this could be my first commission. Does it really count?

  1. I am looking forward to seeing where you take the figure you will be painting up. I am in a similar situation with this offer and am definitely claiming this as my first commission work, even if it was paid with in miniatures. I’ll be blogging on mine as well and would love feedback.

    Good luck to you.

    Yeah! Good thing I cut the lawn. Now you have what? 11 lifetimes worth of minis to paint?
