TSM Services

Through TaleSpinner Minis, I offer the following services:

  • Sculpting 28 to 32 mm (1/64 scale) minis.
  • Painting minis
  • Writing

Sculpting

I sculpt 28 to 32 mm (1/64 scale) minis, primarily in the fantasy genre. I prefer to sculpt creatures, animals, dragons, and monsters but am willing to tackle almost any sculpt. I do not sculpt demons or the demonic nor figures with excessive nudity/lewdness. I do create my own reference art, but also enjoy working off of others' concepts and art. I try to keep my rates near the low end of the industry standard, starting at around $50 for a small animal and working up from there, depending on the size and complexity of the sculpt.

Please do not ask me to copy the intellectual property of others; that is a sure way to get me to turn down your sculpt. I don't mind doing derivitive works though, so long as they are sufficiently different from the original.

Contact me with your project details, and I will give you a quote. I prefer to be paid in US dollars via PayPal, but am not above bartering sculpts for goods and services.

I love working for charity, so if you have a need of a sculpt for a charity, let me know and I'll see what I can do to help.

Painting

I currently paint for personal enjoyment and for companies which produce and sell my sculpts. If you are in the latter category and are interested in having me paint a copy of one of my sculpts for your promotional materials, let me know. Since, I will likely be painting any mini I sculpt anyway, I would not likely charge for this service if you just want photos for your site. If you want to own the painted mini or the photos or need it on a deadline, then let me know and I will quote you a price.

For all others who want painting, please refer to my friend Joy at MamaGeek.com who is an excellent painter and offers reasonable rates.

Writing

I am a professional writer by trade, with a BS in English: Technical Communications and 20+ years of writing experience. I love communicating and sharing my knowledge. I can also interview experts and do the writing for you. So, if you have a need for a tutorial, editing, or other writing; please let me know and we can work out a price.
