    Hi everyone ,


    Monty's Miniatures....who or what are they ...well a new venture by a fellow who in real life is called Simon Edwards and on PF is known as montythefirst

    Simon decided to get a series of brushes done for day to day use which were both good quality and in useful sizes so he commissioned a company to produce what we are looking at for the Monty's Miniatures.

    The samples were sent quickly and were held in a good clear storage wallet which not only held them all together is a good case when travelling .

    I have been using these for basing and detailing for the past week or so and have given them some rough treatment and I am pleasantly surprised at the "staying power" of them particularly the larger sizes .

    Features:
    • Red Sable brush hair
    • Very good security in the ferrule which has no join
    • Distinctive Orange and Black wooden handle
    • Handle is short in length from lower edge of ferrule (130mm approx)
    • Comfortable to hold and use
    • Good " spring and elasticity" on brush point
    • Brush holds paint well
    • UK manufactured

    Suitability
    • No concerns with my chosen Acrylics or Water Soluable Oils
    • Suitable for all scales from wargame figures upwards
    • Good for both small and larger area's of a model
    Sizes
    • A selection available at present consist of sizes , 2, 1, 0 , 00 and a 000
    • If you want some specific sizes or qty the contact Simon direct to sort this out
    General Comments
    • These are not kolinsky sable but are good quality red sable
    • They are good brushes for " bulk" painting
    • Reasonably priced
    • Sourced by Simon (a commison painter) who knows what both him and us need
    • With regular cleaning as we would do they will give a long service at the bench
    Shipping
    • UK is FREE
    • Overseas is available but the purchaser is requested to check import rules regarding sable .
    Final Thoughts
    Its nice to see a modeller producing what we want and something so vital as a good brush , these are not Series 7 but will give a good back up and a good result on your chosen model.
    Presentation and materials used are of a good quality and there is of course that nice and easy to see handle.
    I will be getting some more of the the more popular sizes and hope we might see perhaps some flats as well

    Well done to Monty's Miniatures going for this venture
