Those models look fantastic Jag...especially for 15mm...that detail is crazy.

Even for 28mm im figuring out bigger brushes are better most of the time...

Really tough call.  I've made those Witch Hunters and mine don't look nearly as good.

But those other guys are in 15mm and painted like very good 28mm minis.  That's what won it for me.

Absolutely - more and more I'm coming round to good quality brushes (that maintain a good tip) and using bigger sizes. I'm working on some 28mm Ungor at the mo and haven't gone below a 2.

Thanks! It's taken me a long time suss that a number 1 brush is much easier to paint detail than a tiny brush (which is what o used to use). I only went below a 1 for the ribbing on the orange guy I think.
OK, you've convinced me. I'll stick my 5/0 back in the draw and give it a go.  :)
I don\'t know whether to be a good example or a horrible warning.
