I am looking at writing names on the bases of my models... along the front that will say... Bob001... Bob002... Bob003 etc.
Its a small small place to paint/write this in.
Any ideas on how I can do this?
Stencilling might work if you can find something small enough to work with but strong enough to maintain it's shape
or there's the classic "bad freehand lettering" style that some people go for

THIN your paints and use a very fine brush.
Maybe practice once or twice on a spare base before you start on your actual minis.

Another method could be to use some very fine tipped gel-ink pens. You can get these in stationers, just grab a white one and write the names striaght onto the bases.
It is best if you do the writing before you stick the model to the base - it will be easier. Just be sure you cover the writing with something when you come to spray the model!
Thanks guys, I will make a few attempts and see what works better.
Yeah I use the Sakura Micron Pigma pens .005 and they work very well. You definitely want to spray some varnish over the ink or it will smudge or run later on.

Will all your models have names? Or will those be squad names? Where will you come up with soooo many cool names (I hope you do not play IG )...
sakura micron are EXCELLENT (for drawing fine detail drawings as well), but if those are too costly, go to your nearest china town, or go online and get some gundam marker pens. not the markers, as they suck, and are too bulky for 40k, but thier detail pens work excellent, and are $2 a pop.
Or just use a toothpick.
