Joanie, have to blsme the Chinese & Russians... they work cheap & in volume mass producing & painting. St Petersburg figurines are painted by the same people that do the faberge eggs and another outfit does similar work out of China. And I believe I heard a rumor at Gen Con that GW workshop (of Warhammer 40k fame) has contracted w/ a Chinese company to paint their minis and they will start selling prepainted minis this fall.

I made some decent $ in college painting minis but it was nothing more than a supplement to my other two jobs. Helped raise beer money and pay the rent though. I too believe Roger's work is of the professional quality but the competition is ferocious.
