    Get some rosemary and co mate, a pittance and cracking brushes. Series 22, 33 and 323 are all good. I like 323 personaly

    Always. If you can get something from GW, you can generally get it better quality elsewhere and always for a lower price

    Rosemary and Co are great

    Really you had to ask about GW and overpricing?

    i´d never buy brushes from gw, never liked them, and way to overpriced. unless you´re a gd-class painter who actually makes money from painting, i wouldnt spend anything near to these numbers on brushes.

    Don't waste your $ on GW brushes. There are brushes that are better quality that you can purchase for at least half the price of GW brushes. Here are some you may want to search for:

    Isabey
    Raphael Series 8404
    Windsor Newton Series 7
    Rosemary and Co

    The best quality brushes for mini painting are all kolinsky sable. From there all you are really doing is just picking a brush you like that you can afford.

    Dont waste your money there just winsor and newton series 7 brushes with the GW logo on them. Go to hobbycraft or an art store you can get them for about £7 each depending on the size you want. A 0 and 00 is what i use.

    they are way over priced. I am firm believer that any hobby company selling brushes is way over priced, but GW really take the cake. This brush set borders on the ridiculous. and I get paid to paint. There are many brush options out there, and much better ways of getting VALUE for your money. Rosemary, Raphael, dick blick and of course Series 7 Brushes are all good options. GW makes a mint rebranding cheaper materials for an exorbitant price, this brush set is just one more example.
