Call to Arms Program



At BTP there are two options for getting your project assembled and/or painted:

A) Your project goes through the regular process where a pool of painters chooses projects based on inspiration and everything floats along like rafts on a river
B) The Call to Arms program.  Read on!

A new project of army size or larger qualifies for special treatment.
 

Your army will be done by appointment and finished by a team of artists (headed by myself and a veteran artist) in about an eight day span.  You claim your slot by placing your deposit.  You will have access to the group while we work via webcam and/or Skype.

Additionally, you will receive a detailed recipe of process and materials/paints used in the creation of your army, two videos (including possibly artist interviews, director's notes, a battle report, army overview, and/or how-to), and a signed and dated picture with all artists that work on the project.

I have made open the following slots.  It takes about a week.  Your project will be completed, with in-progress pics approved, by the last day.

May 2-9 open
May 9-16 open
May 16-23 open
May 23-30 open

You just need to get in your deposit to claim the spot.  Your models need to be in a week in advance of your appointment.

You will be ready to pay the last part of the project on the day it's finished.

Here is an example of the suite of update videos for a large project

 Note about existing projects:  it may be that you already have a project going with us.  I am working those through as quickly and efficiently as possible with the objective of finishing all by February or March of this coming year (or today depending on where you are in the process).  Starting in 2016 it is my intention to have all major projects done in this Call to Arms way, an entirely pleasant and exact process that you will totally love.

If you have an army-sized project in the works and would like to bundle it with a new (and similar) project then you can snatch up one of the slots.

For those that have that minority of projects that are delayed, I apologize, this program will actually help move things along more quickly.  I know it sounds counter intuitive, but the math is solid.


Blue Table Painting Weekly Project Update

Jamie's ready to handle your order

  • July 17.  Happy Monday. 
  • July 16.  I am packing a huge amount of projects, about twenty, this afternoon.  Almost done in fact.  Going out on Monday.  I will send tracking.
  •  July 12. Please pay for completed projects.  That would be so amazing right now.
  • July 11.  I am packing packages today.  If you have something that needs to go out, it should be to you by Monday the 17th in the US.  If you made a whole army inquiry (or similar large project) you can get half off your painting cost today.  New projects only.
  • July 6.  I am still here every day.  I don't normally post anything about my personal life, but I have a pretty serious family situation going, so please bear with me while I get things sorted out by Monday, July 10th.  I am monitoring emails and excited to get new projects set up, but might not be able to get back to you right away.
  • June 29.  Heading to PO today.  I'm on deck and can be reached, but still playing a bit of catch-up.
  • June 28.  I am taking the day off. 
  • June 27.  Most clients with 40K armies now want them done nearly immediately.  I can only get them through so fast.
  • June 24. I've had a sudden surge in emails, so I'm working on that.  Also a TON of projects coming in completed.  The ratio is good.  Twenty out of sixty-two projects are in pre-op, so the vast majority are already in some stage of getting worked on.
  • June 19. I'm ready for new orders.  If you are waiting on a response from me then you should re-send as I'm pretty much caught up.  
  •  Please send things to this address:

Waiting for Painting

Your project is secure at the studio.  On occasion, because of the specialty nature of a project, it takes longer.  For example: your project might need a specific painter or need special skills that only a few painters possess.  In ideal conditions there should be no projects lingering here for more than seven days.
Barbarians 01 BARM

Grey Knights 01 WNOE
Dark Angels 02 AWIN
Imperial Guard 01 KTUC
Warhammer Quest 01 JWAL  some painted already
Tau Supremacy Armor 01 GLEV
Adeptus Mechanicus 03 AZOM 
Cygnar 02 MVEL 90% done, pending for completion


Active Painting
This means that a painter is working on your project and expected completion is in 1-14 days  Painters come in Wednesday-Friday so the other days there's not that much movement.
It will then go to digital photography where you will get HD pics on Flickr for review.

Instant Gratification
If you have a project in the pre-assembly stage or "unusual circumstances" and would like to just switch out for an existing item that I  have on hand (ie drop your project and just have me send you something I have ready), let's do that.  Take the amount that you paid (in cash) and give yourself 10% bonus on top of that.  You will come out smelling like a rose.


Double Your Money
OR convert to a www.bluetablestore.com coupon credit at +20% good for six months.  So let's say you paid $400 cash for your project as a deposit, that would get you a $480 webstore credit which would in turn buy around $800 worth of stuff.

Sam picking up a new project

Completed 2015
As a matter of interest here are projects we have completed in recent months.  We have finished over 1500 projects since Spring 2013.  Lifetime BTP has finished 6000-8000 projects, a record unheard of in this industry. This is also interesting because you can also see the types of armies we are painting, a reflection of the hobby as a whole?

  • June 17.  Thank you so much for using BTP.  If you are antsy about your project, don't just let it fester-- contact me.  I'm here working on pushing it all through.  Every day.  My phone number is 801 372 7661
  • June 16.  I am here.
  • June 14.  The announcement of 8th ed. 40K marked the end of that revenue during the runup, the precursor of what it coming now, a tsunami of new orders.  I have been ramping up my manpower in anticipation of this, so by all means hit me with your 40K armies that need to be done.
  • June 11.  With much tired-ness I am hanging up my hat for the day.  Good night all, thank you ever so much.
  • June 7.  I am caught up on emails again. Feel free to friend me on Facebook.  Shawn Gately.  Also, let's set up a project!
  • June 6.  Working on all.  Eagerly awaiting all the masses of armies to be done on the advent of 8th ed.
  • June 2.  I am caught up on emails.  I welcome your inquiries.  I'm ready to set up new projects.  I've got some new talent in the pipe in anticipation of the giant wave of projects coming after the release of 8th Edition 40K.
  • May 29.  Still got two slots open for the Have a Nice Summer special and I'm extending it through June 6th. Have a Nice Summer Special.  This is for those of you that know you want to jump into 40K 8th edition but don't know what you want to play yet.  For $2000 (paid in halves or quarters during June) here's what you get: a $3000 credit for assembly and painting for your army AND wholesale pricing for your models at 35% off (must be commonly available kits, so no Forge World for example).  Limited time, limited slots.
  • May 23.  Got in packages today, will update the project list for that soon.  Also answered so many emails.  My eyeballs hurt.  Over a hundred at least.  Thank you, thank you so much.
  • May 22.  I had a great weekend.  Spent some good time with my eight year old daughter.  I wanted to see Alien Covenant but it was sold out so I'm waiting a week, just got to avoid spoilers.  I am working with Jamie to go over all the projects, pulling all and taking a good look to get them moved on.  I am bringing on a few new artists.  Interviews this week.  Please I beg you don't ask about your project, I assure you I'm going over every single one this week.
  • May 18.  Making good time on correspondence.  Caught up on shipping.  It's good times.  Thank you so much. 
  •  
  • May 17.  BTP is having a great time in May.  I am completely inundated with emails.  Please hold tight, I'm working through them.  I'm not ignoring you.  I still have TWO slots open for the Summer Special...
  • May 9.  Have a Nice Summer Special.  This is for those of you that know you want to jump into 40K 8th edition but don't know what you want to play yet.  For $2000 (paid in halves or quarters during May) here's what you get: a $3000 credit for assembly and painting for your army AND wholesale pricing for your models at 35% off (must be commonly available kits, so no Forge World for example).  Limited time, limited slots.
  • May 8.  I am here every day, pushing project forwards!  I am super behind on my emails, don't worry if you are waiting on a response.
  • April 30. Packages are webstore orders are all packed up.
  • April 24.  Long time with no update.  But guys, I'm here every day moving it forward.  I was setting up artist appointments yesterday.
  • April 4.  Tara will be up to date with shipping today.  If you don't have a tracking number for a project that should be on the way by tonight, get in touch with me.  
  • March 28.  Thank you for stopping by.  I am here, as always, every day.  As you can see, projects are working their way through month after month.  Want to chat me up in chat mode?  Try Skype ID bluetablepainting  I always have it up.  I'm running an awesome Champions RPG with all miniatures with my sons as well as Master Assembler Rick.  It's going tremendously.
  •  
  • March 26.  Thank you.  Thank you so much for using BTP for your project.  I am here every day, getting everything moved ahead.  I have now permanently opened up the "just get it done" special.  Assembly is now surging ahead.  You'll notice a lot of projects moving to "Ready to Paint".
  • March 24.  I am taking a few days off.  Mostly.  Still going to work mornings to get projects moved ahead.
  • March 22.  Thank you all so much for coming by my update page.  As you may notice, things get moved forward and updated every day here.  Thirteen years and going strong.  It's spring in Utah and the trees are flowering.  Plus it rained today which reminds me of Oregon.  It's great.  I am so happy.
  • March 19.  Spending the weekend getting all projects ready for attention.  This means paperwork.  Went to see Logan (awesome) and Kong (lame).
  • March 15.  I have a new assistant.  Her name is Tara.  She is English and burned out on running a series of various bakeries.  We got all the packages out today.  Because of her I was able to enjoy last weekend with my kids rather than packing all day long.  It was great.  I want to thank all of you my great clients.  My heart is full of gratefulness.  Thank you. 
  • Also, I am caught up on emails.  If you are waiting for a response you better re-send.
  • March 12.  It is a good Sunday.  It feels like Spring.  I know it sounds odd, but I enjoy answering my emails.  I get to talk to You.  All my love and thanks to all my wonderful clients. Did you know that for seventy active projects, this page receives well over a hundred visitors every day?  I can't figure it out.  But I am here, doing my best to move every project down the line and it gets better every day.  Enjoy your Sunday and don't forget to smile.
  • March 11.  Thank you.  Thank you to all my clients.  I appreciate the business very much.  I am spending the day with my daughter.
  • March 8. 2017 and still turning over the projects.  BTP was founded on January 1st, 2004.  That's thirteen years folks. Three new projects on the docket now, all unpacked.
  • March 7.  Everything is chugging away.  Picked up packages.  Doing receiving tomorrow.
  • February 27.  Thank you so much for being here.  I am mostly caught up on my emails hooray for me.
  • February 25. Valhalla Kickstarter is up in about a week.  Don't miss out, tickets are almost impossible to get.
  •  
  • February 24. I'm here.  It's a snowy day in Utah. 
  • February 16. Hello many many people who visit this page every day. I am here, peacefully going about my business.
  • February 13.  I'm here just buzzing along.  Had some mashed potatoes (that I made) this morning with carrots and italian parsley.  Good breakfast.  I am on the hunt for AT-43 models, want to trade some in?  Come on people, you come here every day to look, why not get off the bench and interact. 
  • Valentine's Day is coming soon.  Better get moving now.  Don't be that guy picking through the leavings of the flower section at 5:30pm on his way home.
  • February 9. 2017.  Today is a big packing day.  Going to buy supplies this morning.
  • February 6.  I am back in the saddle.  Tomorrow is a big packing day.  I have a stack higher than my head lined up!
  • February 3.  It's been one very productive week.  I will be hard to get a hold of this weekend.
  • February 1.  Picked up all packages.  Got in a bunch of trades, loads of stuff ready to go up on the store. 
  • January 28.  Thank you for dropping by.  More people visit this "project update" site than actually have projects.  Bit of a mystery.  Anyway, I'm here every day, working to get every project down the field and completed.  If you knew the story of the last two years, the Saga really, your eyes would pop out of year collective heads.  I feel amazing this last month as the project load looks to be not only under control, but many projects are getting near-instant attention.  And that makes me happy.
  • January 25.  Working away at it every day.
  • January 18.  Thank you for visiting.  Pretty soon ALL projects will be in active status, being worked on by an artist.
  • January 16.  I am caught up on emails and answering each new one as it comes in.  If you are waiting on a response from me, best to re-send.
  • Friday the 13th!  Lucky day.  It's smooth sailing.
  • January 10.  Didn't get out packages, they are all wrapped up now, though.  Always more than I previously thought.  I have now shored up assembly, it is going to get white hot in the coming weeks.
  • January 9.  It's Monday and I'm in the saddle!  Got 62x emails to plow.  Also doing two interviews and getting out a number of packages.
  • January 3.  Packing day.

2016
  • December 27.  If you look at the bottom part of this page you'll see a HUGE list of projects that we've completed in recent history.  And new projects are rolling off the line all the time.
  • December 22.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  For all who have continued to support BTP the last few years, I express my heartfelt appreciation.
  • December 19. Braved the PO today to get out almost every package and it was a lot.  An audible groan went up from the line as I went to the teller with a twenty foot tall stack of boxes.  Going again tomorrow.  A LOT of people visit this page every day.  It's about 48/68 projects being actively worked on somehow, a high percentage. I am now allowing myself to take a shower and collapse for the night.
  • December 14.  Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for keeping me and my crew (and my family) flush with work, and making our lives better.  I have been blackout sick the last few days, still catching up.
  • December 7.  If you have a project due for Christmas, contact me right away!  I don't want to miss anything.
  • December 6.  Got 24x packages packed up and ready to go. 
  • November 30.  I am catching up on emails over the weekend.  Hold tight!
  • November 26.  I am doing Logistics the next few days: review equipment, prepare contracts, interview artists, and so forth.  Get those projects under the brush!
  • Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I'm answering emails today.  
  • November 21.  Remember to grab one of the six slots for my December L3 special.  December special 
  • November 20.  Life is good.  I'm here every day getting projects through.
  • November 19.  Running my L3 December special (starting now Nov 19, so get the limited slots while they're hot)  December special now.  It's so good people are always asking about it.
  • November 17.  The majority of projects are sailing through easily and on time.  New talent is producing some solid work. 
  • November 16.  If delays in your project have caused you grief, I really am sorry.  I know a blanket apology isn't as good, but if you want one individually, give me a call at 801 372 7661.  And if I'm over four months (yeesh!) and really craving some closure, I have "stuff" and you're welcome to get some of it and be done. Among other things, you can get a webstore credit for www.bluetablestore.com in the amount of whatever you paid plus 10%.  And since most items are about half off, that's double your money.  And the credit is good for six months so you have a while to see what good stuff goes up there. Again, I am sorry, and I hope you're not carrying it around inside.
  • November 15.  I have been training my ass off.  Three talented new recruits are producing some promising results.
  • November 14. I am here every day.  Today I am writing up contracts and getting projects lined up for artists.

  • June 14. I am answering emails all day.  I feel at peace.  I am doing the best I can, and then I go to sleep.  I have four new artists getting orientation in the next week.  they are all very talented and have eye-popping portfolios.  A lot of Fine Arts degrees coming through.  That's on top of the four new artists that are already trained and cracking the whip on projects currently.  So with twelve artists thumping, it should make short work of the whole sixty projects in line right now.
  •

  • June 9. I was going sixteen hours yesterday.  Oh yeah!
  • June 8.  A few weeks ago my main assembler conked out unexpectedly.  I have been solving this by having painters do basic assembly.  Simple and effective.  I have also brought on EIGHT new artists in recent weeks.  They are very talented and motivated and already producing outstanding work.  The backlog will start to melt away soon! 
  • June 7. I am raising a notable amount of money to get the new studio set up ($13K).  If anyone wants to back this I'm willing to discuss all sorts of arrangements.
  • June 2.  Training of new talent is proceeding very well.
  • I have hired two new painters.  They are very, very talented and will start their orientation on May 27th.  Melissa and Geoff.  Would you like to meet them?
  • There are a lot of people visiting this page, way more than normal.  Why is this?
  • May 23rd-- over the weekend I met with three artists and assigned projects.  I interviewed two new potential artists.  Many projects need to be updated on this sheet.  I also have a TON of digital photography waiting.
  • May 20th-- checking out a new round of projects today and over the weekend.  I am on the ball. 
  • May 18th-- I have projects lined up for artists to work on them.  I am interviewing replacements for Josh soon.  Those are some big shoes to fill..

  • May 9th-- artists are coming and going with projects.  Got in about seven packages today.
  • May 7th-- going to pick up packages at FLGS on Monday.  There are six!  Plus models that were ordered.  I'm offering one (1) wholesale account
  • May 6th-- I went by the old studio and found No packages.  Packages sent to my FLGS are being received easily and successfully.
  • May 5th-- I had a staffer go by USPS, UPS and Fedex today and we have NO packages there.  Also the old Spanish Fork studio (nothing) SO if you show a package as delivered we need to look into it right away!

  • Hello beloved clients, thank you so much for your business.  I met with Chris yesterday and got two projects in, and assigned four new projects.  I am doing shipping Wednesday.  All projects marked "Completed" should already be TO you if in US.
  • I have found the new studio.  It is... amazing. Better than the Valhalla locations we've had at Sundance. I'm rounding up cash for the up front costs.  I'm offering one (1) wholesale account   Email me for details.  ONE.  Also, I'm going to be running the School of Paintology and Ultimate DnD there.  It's all coming together... mwahahahahahaaaa!
  • I am down to nine utility emails now.  Response time is very swift now and I'm ready to set up new projects over the weekend.  Also, if you show "Models Incoming" but know that your package is in my area, contact me right away.  I have several staffers picking up and re-routing packages to me.
  • Wednesday 4/20.  Hope you're all having a good time. With very very low overhead, BTP is powering forward on production.  I am down to 40 emails from an all time high of 220 about a week ago.
  • For the time being, send packages signature required to Blue Table Painting, c/o Blakfyre Games  391 S Main St, Pleasant Grove, UT 84062

  • Katelyn was in today and packed up the remainder of the projects that were ready and shipped out about ten boxes.  Jeff picked up about twelve projects for assembly.  All projects are in progress in one form or another.  If you are sending in a package, and your tracking shows as delivered BUT it still lists as "Models Incoming" here they you should contact me.
  • Got a LOT done today!  Monday.  
  • I got a mystery package from "L. Chandler".  Who is?
  • I am in SLC.  New studio will be up and running in the April 15-30 range.  In the meantime we are running the studio "guerrilla warfare" style, meeting with artists one on one.
  • I am behind on emails, caught up on shipping.
  •  I am in the studio every day this week, rest assured everything is getting methodical attention.
  • Studio is closed part-day today Jan 27 for a training run.  It's best to text me (or call if you wish) at 801 372 7661 my personal cell. 
  • I am back in the studio.  Running three February Specials
    • February specials (for new set up from Feb 2-28): For a whole army where you order models* through BTP, the cost of models is 32% off. For Example: a $150 Storm Surge is $102. 
    • Two slots open for the massive instant gratification that is the Call to Arms program I feel very good about this service. 
    • All Xenos races for 40K are 20% off on painting with artistic license (we pick color scheme within reason). That can be a huge savings. 
    •  February 2-10 you get $50 of free conversion work (on a project of $250 or more) this is cumulative with others
    • *There are limitations-- commonly available models only, like GW plastics or stuff you get through a distributor. Not Forge World or specialist imports for example
      **specials are limited time, limited quantity and may end early.
      ***specials are not cumulative with other specials.
* For Call to Arms program (large armies), and only applies to commonly available items (ie not imports, special orders, or Forge World).  Limited time, limited quantity.
2015
  • Friday 12/18.  I'm here all day finishing up before I hibernate for two weeks.  The last part of December I will be focusing on setting up projects (especially Call to Arms) projects for January.    So, I am available via e  I have Chad (you remember Chad?) coming in 1-5pm Monday and Tuesday next week.  Other than that, artists mostly have two weeks of work lined up.

  • Thank you to all cleints!  Got in a bunch of packages today, so that area is updated.
  • It is my goal to finish all current projects in December, January, and February while at the same time ramp up "project by appointment" during that same time.  If you want to set up an army-sized project for a specific time slot I am taking orders for completion in January.
  • I am hiring new painters.
  • Monday 11/30 answering a ton of emails.
  • Thursday 11/19/2015 I'm getting projects ready to go into Assembly so be sure your Instructions sheets are in.  I am very pleased to say that only seven projects still need materials in, which means that the project flow is going a lot more smoothly.
  • Tuesday, I took a day off and now I'm back. Bretonnian mega-project is now done and I'm turning to project prep (getting projects into assembly).
  •  I am  back and in the saddle, Monday at 9am.  Answering emails!  Karina is due in today to do packing.
  •  I am out of town for the weekend and answering emails.  Ready to set up new projects.

  • *old posts at bottom
  • Answered a ton of emails over LD weekend, down to about 18 all told which is amazing.
  • Time to hire a new painter.
  • Email count 33 Main, 9 Projects, 3 Inquiries.  This is a VERY low count.  I am catching up!
  • Please don't send cases or transports with your models.  There is an extra charge to ship them back as they are so bulky.
  • Monday August 10th.  I have a personal life now, yay for me.  If you have a project and would like to switch it out for an existing army or collection that BTP owns of equal or slightly higher value (your favor) I want to do that.  My goal: get the project load from 105~ to 60.
  • Friday August 7th- I am answering people who want quotes for the next three days.  Steve our old inquiries guy will be answering as many of the fifty or so inquiry emails on Sunday as he can.  Welcome back Steve!
  • Active artists: 12
  • BTP historically finishes 100-170 projects every quarter (three months)
  • Right now, the status at BTP is that there is a lump of project going into assembly.  This will get smoothed out as it takes the assemblers 1-2 weeks to get it all done.
  • If your project does not appear on the list, please contact bluetablepainting@gmail.com UNLESS you have sent your deposit within the last eight days in which case you should just rest easy.
