|Winsor-Newton series 7 and Rafael 8404 series Brushes|
Just like I started my airbrush review, let me tell you that I am not a great painter. At best, I am an average to decent painter. I can usually make my armies look decent, but they will not see the final table of any judging. I think that is what is going to make my review of these brushes appealing. I have no mad skillz. I'm just an average painter.
A while back, I was painting my Necrons with the brushes I got from citadel in the various Paint sets and the 'eavy metal set I had. I have to say, I thought I was doing ok, until I started listening to the podcasts. All of them, Screaming Heretic, Independent Characters you name it, I listen. Whenever they talked about painting, they all stressed getting good brushes and taking care of them. Well, I thought I had good brushes but then I heard and read an article on the Winsor-Newton Series 7 (WNS7) brushes. I went to Dick Blick's and ordered a set of 4. I have to say, there was an immediate improvement in my painting. I also learned from the podcasts and articles not to paint with the tips, but the sides of the brushes. Nifty trick there.
