Save yer money...

I use Rosemary & Co - Series 401 round, Series 769 Flat Brights and for the really small stuff  Series 92 red micro sable

https://www.rosemaryandco.com/index.php?cPath=278_392

https://www.rosemaryandco.com/index.php?cPath=278_394&osCsid=56v6os82rua616ggs09e0b36j6

https://www.rosemaryandco.com/index.php?cPath=257_382&osCsid=56v6os82rua616ggs09e0b36j6



Handmade in the UK

Sable blend so that they hold shape and charge.

All I have used for the past three years, and I wish I'd used them for the 27 years before that. I use these 50 hours per week and I have worn out 2 brushes in 3 years.

Check the thread I started on the Warhammer Forum last year and you'll see how many people were VERY happy with their own purchases. Superfast delivery too.

Yep. Rosemary for me too. Just as good as the much vaunted Winsor & Newton 7 series, but at one third of the price.

Well I only use the best...

Was drilled in to me when I studied art, and on top of that I owe it to my clients to maintain that attitude.

These brushes are GOOD

I wouldn't use a Winsor & Newton if I was given one.

Rosemary all the way for me. I gave them a try about a month ago and I'm not looking back. The quality is very good and the price even better. I also have some W&N Series 7 and I can't really feel a difference in quality between them. I use Series 33. Pure Kolinsky Pointed.

With the series 401, because they are a blend, they hold a better point and paint charge.

When they lose shape, you dip them in boiling water for 5 seconds and re-shape them. Works a treat and that's why mine have lasted so long!

Fantastic control and durability.

Thanks guys Smiley
It seems Rosemary is the way to go by popular approvement. Shame on me but I'm not sure about wich individual brush to buy. I think I need some from 401 series and some from 92. Which corresponds to the shittie GW "standard" brush and "detail/fine detail" brush?
I'll buy a lot of brushes to test different sizes but I'd like to be sure to have a couple of "standard" and a couple of "detail". Smiley

Reproduced here:



'If you want the best combination of paint load and spring back. then I suggest that you look at the series 401 range of red sable blend. You can have a selection of 10 brushes between sizes 4/0 and 2 including postage for under £20. This is more than enough brushes for anyone.

Add to this a size 2,4 and 6 flat from the series 768 range

And for painting eyes with ease add a size 10/0 series 92 and you will have spent well under £30 and have a SERIOUS set of high quality brushes.'

Series 92: 10/0 and 7/0

Series 768: 2, 4 and 6 flats.

and that's what I have just ordered Smiley (plus a series 401 n 4)
Well, 12 brushes for (27€ plus 5€ shipping) 32€. It seems a great deal.
Many thanks Mark. Wink

Are these Rosemary brushes suitable for acryllic paints?
I just ask this because I know a few people in our gamingclub who'll swear by oilpaint for their miniatures.
I'm also following this topic with interrest since I've bought a smal set of brushes in a modelbuildershop in Antwerp and already 2 brushes have gone to sh** after a day or 2  Angry
Mine are from JR pruducts, a German company and unless I did something wrong it's bloody rubbish if you ask me.
