I just wanted to give a shout out to Fernando Painting Services. They were fabulous and I am really happy with the how the figs came out.

I started communicating with them back in Aug 2021 to paint 100 28 mm figs for an 18th century Ottoman Army. I selected the Super Showcase standard and the figs came out really nicely. I sent pics of examples and the communication was really good when they were unsure of something. I received the figs yesterday in the US and everything was so well packed.

I've been thinking for years of trying to Fernando out and I am so glad I finally decided to do so. I now have a great solution for my lead pile! I would certainly recommend their services.

They are really good. I'm working on my 4th order with them. Very happy with their work. 🙂

For my fist experience I posted over 100 figures yesterday, so I am further encouraged by your good reports. Thanks.
Out of interest, on the return how were they packed?

The packaging was outstanding with plenty of padding. All of the figures came in fine.

I just wish I decided earlier to use their services.

On return they pack everything in foam. The packaging must take a tremendous amount of time to do. They do a great job!

My next order is nearly ready to go. I have been using them for twenty years. Needless to say, I recommend them.

Anybody ever have trouble with your credit card when trying to pay them?

Frederick Supporting Member of TMP10 Jan 2022 2:43 p.m. PST

Good to know – I have some figs that could stand brushwork!

Skipper, my payment was initially declined by my credit card. They texted me to verify the transaction and said that if it was correct to submit it again. No issue after that.

Good recommendation. I have been thinking about using them for a while now.
