I'd love some recommendations for good, reliable US painting services. (I've used Fernando, will continue to use Fernando, but have a few things I'd like done here in the US).

I haven't used any US services before and would love to hear who is good and reliable.

I have had great results from CGR. Contact Russ Levy at levy4575 at bellsouth dot net

Pics of some 15mm Vietnam and other stuff they did for me:

CGR is my go to for small batch. Great service and turn around.

What does CGR stand for?

Their new website

What are their prices like, no clue on the website

Agreed, an idea of their pricing would be helpful.

I find their prices very reasonable but you really need to get a quote.

My last batch of 15mm SciFi was $2.25 USD per fig, and I asked them to match as best they could the paint scheme of some existing figs. Vehicles were $15 USD, and some big troll sized monsters were $6 USD

CGR is great for modern stuff like WW2, Korea, Vietnam etc. They do excellent work and their service is top notch. They are my go to painters for WWII. Glad to see they have a website now.

Reliable US painters for the horse and musket period is difficult to come by. I have better luck overseas.

Fernando has painted some AWI and Napoleonics for me and they do good work and I plan to use them again. I have recently used Artmasters in the UK and they do outstanding work but they are pricy and shipping isn't cheap.
