Artis Opus - Series M: Brush Set


Recommended Posts

So the new Artis Opus KS is live.  It can be found here:

Be curious what people's opinions are on the "smaller" brushes they are doing here.  I've always been taught go for a brush with a larger belly and a good point over something like these.

 

Also how people like the previous ones to see if they were worth the price.

I was just checking this out and was interested in them but the price is too high for me right now and the comparison picture made me realize I already have a similar brush, a Rosemary & Co Series 323 Spotter. I like using it for things that need shorter brush strokes like eyes and textures, plus I think it would be good for small freehand work. The point of mine is just as good as their Series 33, the regular rounds, and the smaller belly has not seemed to be an issue. Personally I would not use it for base coating or blending large areas but for small details, it is useful.

"Miniature" brush heads are terrible IMO. They hold less moisture and paint so they dry out faster, are far easier to ruin by getting paint in the ferrule, and have much worse reach into tight places.

 

Only benefit I can see is stiffness, which isn't really needed on unless drybrushing, and crappy synthetic brushes are plenty stiff for such dirty work.

I like having stiffness in a brush for painting eyes and details like that. A mushy brush doesn't do well for that, I find. It is why I like my Raphael 8402 more than the 8404 for fine detail, and the 8404 for blending (mushy for blending, stiff for fine lines and points). Still, I want the brush to have enough material in it to not dry up, and smaller is easier to mess up the ferrule. Easy pass for me here.

That Samurai Stand is the most tempting thing here. I should search one of those out on Thingiverse...

 

There are many similar products out there.

True. This just reminded me that don't have one currently.

      This Kickstarter just launched for double-sided magnetic dungeon tiles. Similar to Ettinstone tiles, and aside from appearing to be a bit thinner, I can’t see why these wouldn’t work with Ettinstone tiles (I certainly plan to use them that way).

      Hi everyone, I wanted to share that we have just launched the third Dunkeldorf Kickstarter! Our last Kickstarter was focusing on "The Prancing Peacock" more or less a full tavern setting. 

      Our new Kickstarter still focuses on the town of Dunkeldorf, but this time it's all about a Brewer "Sven Wentzel" who's also the leader of a ruthless gang of thugs. There's also more focus on the mutants that dwell in the sewers beneath the town. Finally, the third "Faction" for this campaign is Witch Hunters and their Hired Swords who are en route towards Dunkeldorf to root out the mutants they've heard continued rumours about. 

      The Kickstarter can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kinggames/the-kingpin-of-dunkeldorf - With our last 2 campaigns we unlocked a lot of Stretch Goals and included a bunch of extra free miniatures, accessories and pets and we hope to achieve the same this time! 🙂
