High-end services

I build your dream army

I offer a wide range of high-end services. In addition to advice, assembly and painting, I can magnetize the weapons of your models or even make a unique mini by combining different parts.

Unlike many other studios, I work alone and I fully assume my artistic vision of miniature painting. My style is special, approaching the movement chiaroscuro, I paint with heavy contrast, vibrant colors and very intense lighting effects.

Painting hundreds of miniatures each year, I have learned there is no such thing as a “flat rate” when it comes to painting miniatures. Larger, more complex models or more complicated color schemes cost more. A big simple dragon can take less time than a character, depending on the level of detail involved. I work with pleasure on single mini, board game, various models or armies.

My Latest Work

My work process

Your project is unique and it catches all my attention. I do the work myself from the beginning to the end, with my concern for quality at every step.


Book your project

We start by discussing your project in detail and plan the work. I book in my calendar your project once the 50% deposit by PayPal or Bank Wire received.


Buy the models

You can send me your models or I can buy them for you directly from the manufacturers to save money.


Build & Paint

During the building and painting work, I will keep you informed of the progress by email, message and my Facebook page.


Deliver Project

Once the project is finished and approved, I ship it worldwide with tracking in a Citadel Figure Case.

Free Citadel Figure Case

The Citadel Figure Cases are the perfect way to transport and protect your miniatures. Containing one set of revolutionary channel foam, the Citadel Figure Case has been specially designed to fit almost any model quickly and easily. The perfect gift to thank you for commissioning your miniatures at Lemandarin Workshop!

Based in Belgium, worldwide delivery !

In collaboration with GamersGrass

Free Premium Basing

Admit that it would be a shame to have a beautiful army on grey sand bases. I would also be sad to send you my work on ugly bases. That’s why I offer a large range of premium bases GamersGrass without any extra charge!

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of miniature do you paint?

I paint any type of miniature: Model kit, Warhammer, Warhammer 40k, Bloodbowl, Warmachine, Infinity, Malifaux, Guildball, Various Boardgame etc.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes. Worldwide shipping in a Citadel Figure Case from € 15.

Can you do the same painting again later?

I keep detailed painting records, so whether it’s been two months or two years since your last commission, I’m well suited to match previous work.

Can you start my project immediately?

All commissions are treated on a First Come First Served basis but it is possible to arrange if you have a deadline to respect. You can consult my project queue here.

Do you take single miniature commissions?

Yes I do but it costs slightly more than if the miniature was a part of the whole army.

What type of payment do you accept?

I accept PayPal and EU bank transfers.

How much will it cost?

Prices are determined on a case-by-case basis but remember that I offer you a tailor-made service with high skill. My pricing is very competitive for the quality you receive. I work with pleasure on single mini, board game or gigantic armies.

My Testimonials

Creating Quality since 2015

A little about me

My name is Thomas Aka Lemandarin and I’m a 34 year old miniature figure painter. I’ve been painting since I was 14 years old. I worked before as Admin System and IT Teacher. My wife and my friends advised me to offer my services as a painter. Very quickly I had a lot of order and I decided to leave my job to devote myself entirely to the commission.

My mission

Here at Lemandarin Workshop I offer my clients a personal & friendly service from start to finish with the highest professionalism possible. I’m here to help turn your creative ideas for wargaming miniatures into reality through unrivalled service, excellent communication and dedication to your project.

Let’s talk about your project

All commissions are treated on a First Come First Served basis but it is possible to arrange if you have a deadline to respect. I'm booked for work until September 2019.

Be realistic. Consider the cost of materials and any special requests you might have. Rather than request a quote for your dream project of 500 miniatures which will run in the thousands, request a more realistic quote. This will give you a good idea of how the commission process works and whether my service is right for you.

If you have a budget in mind, please tell me and I could immediately tell you if it’s feasible.
