Straight from Dave’s Paint Desk

COVID-19 has been hard on everybody. My buddy Dave Lamers almost ran out of things to paint. To help him out, I sent him a package of minis to paint for Must Contain Minis.

As a plug, Dave Lamers does Commission Painting and his prices are very affordable. You can reach out to him by email if you are interested. Those contact details (along with more samples of his work) are available on his painters page on Must Contain Minis.

Now, let’s take a look at what I sent him.

The Package

Below are the contents of the package that I sent along to him. Expect some showcase pictures of these models in the future.

A set of minis that I sent to commission painter Dave Lamers
There are a lot of miniatures here. I included a number of Miniatures by Reaper, North Star Military Figures, RAFM, Full Battle Rattle, Harpy Hobbies and Wargames Foundry. Oh, I almost missed mentioning the figures by Mobster Miniatures and A Song of Ice and Fire. Those are in there too. That is a lot of variety.

I figured that these minis would keep Dave busy for a long time, but he finished them up pretty fast and did some really good work.

As Dave worked on the miniatures, he sent me some pictures of his completed models and works in progress. They look great. Check out these images for yourself!

WIP Pictures – Full Battle Rattle Miniatures

On top of pretty much finishing the models above, Dave also sent me a few pictures of the Full Battle Rattle Miniatures as a Work in Progress.

By the way, it is neat to see that Dave Lamers uses Citadel Paint Handles. Personally, I really like using them too.

Wrapping it up…
