So I got a problem. I absolutly LOVE playing 40k and all its background. However, I have never too interested or too good at painting my models; never had the patience, never had the talent. So, my question is this. I have saved up some money from doing jobs and am wondering what everyones views are about commisioning someone to paint your army for you. There are actually a good few websites that offer good quality painting for good prices. So, your opinoins on what you think about it would be appreciated. Thx.
I think you should do as you like. There is nothing wrong with playing a game with figures painted by someone else as long as you are happy with it. They only real no no is entering figures you bought into a painting contest. Other than that your happiness should be paramount.
There are all kinds of people out there that play the game for different reasons. I myself paint more than I actually play. I enjoy the hobby and painting aspect of it. Some of my friends on the other hand could care less if they proxied their figures with paperclips and pieces of paper.
You will I am sure get all kinds of viewpoints on this topic. Some will say you have to paint otherwise you won't like them, some will say that they have bought figures, even others will say painting is the most fun aspect. Everyone is different.
You really just need to find the right fit for you. If you are indeed interested in commissions you need to look at what you want. What is the quality you want. What is the price you want to pay. I would also really look into price/quality. Make sure there are plenty of examples of the work done. Find someone who will communicate well with you and you have a comfortable rapport with them. Ultimately that will make your happier. Above all else make sure you ask questions and get the answers you are looking for.
