can anyone out there recommend a decent painting service for starfleet minitures?I have had a fleet ready to paint for too long and am half way through a WWII Finnish project, so it is time to bite the bullet and stick my hand in my pocket.
look foraward to responses
take care, you all

I don't recall seeing any services that specialize in SFU minis, but there are no shortage of general painting services out there. I wouldn't trust them to get it right though (they paint lots of Warhammer space marines and have probably never seen a Fed DW before...).

There were folks like Mike Raper who do SFU minis painting and even had website to that effect, but Mike pulled all that and re-focused on BattleTech.

There's people who will paint SFU minis. You might have more luck asking on the legacy bbs where the old-timers tend to hang out. I don't think Aaron Staley, etc. check here at all.

I do SFU minis for hire, but I'm not accepting any gigs right now (way too many of my own back-logged and I need to finish them).

Fernando Enterprises is excellent! I highly recommend them (I had 'em do a full British force for the AWI "Washingtons Wars" game. Blue Table is also very good - I used them for my Confrontation Mid-Nor force.

Targ: Will is correct, Aaron Staley paints SFU minis on a commission basis, but he doesn't read these forums (it's a long story). I'll shoot him an email to see if he's taking any new jobs and them will PM you with his response.
