I'm in the middle of finishing off my Grey Knights Squad and was wondering if anybody had any ideas for how to write the names in nice and small. I have some small art pens but the lines come out very thick. I think using my 00000 brush might work though you'd have to go over it a lot because of the lack of paint on the brush. Any Ideas?
Brushes, I think would work best.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
I tried both, and i found .1 art pens do work, but seem to lack a certain something.
My advice is to mix black paint and ink 50/50, perhaps add a little thinner to that, and if unsure, plot things with a very light (3H or harder) pencil to start with. Use your very finest bruch, and away you go.
NOBODY expects the Holy Inquisition!
Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise....
Our two weapons are fear and surprise... and ruthless efficiency....
Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...
and an almost fanatical devotion to the Emperor....
Our four... no...
Amongst our weapons... Amongst our weaponry...
are such elements as fear, surprise...
I'll come in again.
I use very fine .01 art pens that you can find some places. They are fairly easy to use, just make letters into a series of straight lines.
Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

.01 art pens are a bit hard to find, I have a .02 one but it is even too thick. I'm going to try that ink and paint trick and see if it works. It seems as though it would make the paint run. Am I wrong?
You might try to find Pigma Micron pens at your local art supply store. My local Michael's carries them in a rainbow of colors and they are sized at .005 and work wonderfully for the kind of detail work you are describing. If memory serves, they're $2-3 US each.
I used a tooth pick when I did my lettering. Takes some time and dosent look all that bad
I use a watered down chaos black on a 10/0 brush. Works very well.

Indiana: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.
For the last time, there are
NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES!!!!!
Thanks guys. I tried the watered down black paint and it worked a charm. My new Marine "Icarus" has finally got his name! I'll post a pic when I get back from France. He's lookin flash!
If you have a Michaels Craft shop in your area go to where the sell the art pens and find this "Pigma Micron" I use the .005 which workrs great for the names and for putting some detail onto the Purity Seals.
