From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Tabletop Minions recently compiled a video where they interviewed a number of professional miniature painters and asked each of the them the same questions. The answers are as interesting as they are varied – with many answers contradicting the previous one! If you haven’t see it yet, here it is:
The answers about tools (paints and brushes) in particular got me thinking. While their answers were quite different – everything from use the cheapest to use the most expensive and several in between, they were all saying the same thing. Use what is fit for purpose.
For some people that will be going for the top quality, for most of us, I think fit for purpose means using those paints and brushes that allow you to paint to your best standard – and push a little further too. That often won’t mean the most expensive, but it will mean using those paints and brushes that help you paint the way you want, and won’t feel like they are holding you back.
I’m curious if this is what others do, or do you have strong views one way or another?
