Miniature painting question

Anyone know of a good, reputable miniature painting service? I've got boxes of old SF minis and would love to get some of them painted, but I have zero skill in this area. Anyone here ever used a good service they could recommend?

For that matter, if anyone here has some SF minis they've done a sweet paint job on, how about providing a pic so we can all check them out and admire your handiwork?
Years ago there was a high-end mini painter who had an online gallery that featured a really tremendous job on the old 'Sathar with Laser Rifle' mini. Don't know if that web site is still up (or where to find it), but it was just about museum quality work. Anyone else remember this?

Go to your local hobby shop. There are usually very good figure painters that do work for them. Can't get better than someone who provides work for a hobby shop.

Those are a few examples of SF minis.  Only the battleship is my own work. 

I can't seem to get the images to work again.  They are all in my profile if you can access it on this site.

I know you want someone to do the painting for you, but this seems like an appropriate thread to share this great resource for painting minis...

I would love to see some SF Minis painted up well... please share any results.  Also, if anyone has found good minis that work for SF games please share.

Go to your local GW game day, and ask the 40K players...
