I have a question, Deano. Do you spend long cleaning up your models before you start?
I only ask, as I have some Khurasan models, and they are very nice, but there are bits of wonky detail, or slightly unclear bits in the sculpts, which make it hard to make them look 'perfect', but you seem to manage to make them look impeccable.

Is it all in the paint job, or is there more prep involved too?
My armies:
- Henry VIII's army (WIP) 15mm
- Ancient Germans (28mm)
- Ancient Belgae (Gauls with German allies) (28mm)
- Massilian Greeks (Greeks and Gallic mercenaries/subjects) (28mm)
- A few EI Romans (28mm)
- Handful of WW2 British (15mm)
- A load of old 1993-1999ish Warhammer Orcs and Goblins

My prep is the normal flash and mould line removal and snipping of the 'worm' bits - other than that I guess it's the paint job?

I do find details on figures are a lot clearer when they've been undercoated.

Well your paint job does an excellent job of bringing out the best in the models.
I think perhaps my method (pretty rough and table-top standard) is more reliant on washes, and washes will pick out imperfections, whereas a more precise method can 'correct' them.

Keep up the great work, I always like seeing the models on this thread.
