Only a tentative post really, but was talking to Pete earlier about offering up my services as a commission painter. I'm aware at least one of you isn't the biggest fan of the painting aspect, whereas I love it, and the opportunity to do sometging new/different for me without committing to a new army or amassing a billion character models I will never need is very appealing.
I'd consider myself a pretty good character painter (had a fantastic teacher in Chris Baker) and can turn around quite a lot to a table standard in a fairly short period of time.
Anyway, if anybody's interested just ask. I'm willing to barter services for models too, so just open negotiations. I want commitment free hobby, so I'm not out to bleed anybody dry... Yet.
