    Hi there,

    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, wouldn’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.

    Good Luck.

    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.

    .01 art pens are a bit hard to find, I have a .02 one but it is even too thick. I&#39;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&#39;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&#39;re &#036;2-3 US each.

    I use a watered down chaos black on a 10/0 brush. Works very well.

    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.
