Have a butcher's at this!

Painted by James Wappel.

We are not worthy, master.

I feel like breaking my paint brush over my knee and taking up bowls.

  1. Sob! Bowls did you say? Sounds interesting... do the rules include to-hit rolls and saving throws?

    I recently walked past the local GW and stopped to look in the window at the models on display... I was blown away by the quality of the painting on display. Mind you I doubt if painting of that standard could be achieved with GW brushes! Last batch I bought were truly awful.

    I am working on a new set of rules for the bowls.

    I have given up on GW brushes and use art brushes by Winsor & Newton, they last years and give a great result. They are not much more expensive.

    When I need cheap brushes I buy kiddies painting brushes.

  3. We never use GW brushes. Most of the time we are using some form of Loew Cornel, Cotman, W & N, American Painter, and so on. Liner brushes are also very important, along with flow improver and my nagnifier light!

    Thanks for the info on the technology you use. I buy W&N because they are available in a local art shop. I have had poor results with GW.

  5. GW brushes simply don't hold their shape, there are much better ones out there...

    Those models look great, they have a very distinctive style... of course this can be a good thing or a bad thing - depending on which side of the fence you're on!

  6. W&N is the way to go if you are doing anything that needs to be above table top quality. Ironically GW's new range of brushes are actually worse than their old line.

    I think professional painter do tend to have a distinct style.
