Today is a new video from Troy at Sonic Sledgehammer Studio about the basics of Brushes and Brush Care. As I announced last week, I’ve partnered with Troy to add a range of Age of Sigmar painting tutorials to the site. All part of the plan to be an invaluable resource for all aspects of the hobby.
Brushes and Painting
More than anything else, people ask “What brushes do you use?” In the main it’s Citadel brushes – they’re easy to source and they’re of pretty reliable quality, with an example of such in the video – but when it comes to something specific, I’ll go anywhere for a brush that does what I want!
Synthetics make good choices for brushes you aren’t too worried about knocking around a little bit. They’re generally a bit cheaper than natural brushes, and while replacing them means you’ll probably end up spending about the same amount over a year, you’ll be able to drybrush or stipple away to your heart’s content. Use whatever you can find!
How I Paint Things is a series of simple instructional videos designed to help the newcomer through some of the basics and demonstrate how the very simplest techniques can still give you some great results that’re easily replicated. Aimed at the beginner to painting miniatures, there might be one or two tips or tricks that help even you old hands!
