TTCombat, the makers of the awesome Carnevale and Rumbleslam just released two sets of brushes for all your wargaming needs. TTCombat recently released a huge selection of spray paints for underlaying your miniatures and their two brush lines let you build from there.
The two TTCombat brush ranges are extremely economical synthetic brushes. The wood is durable and the metal end connects firmly to the wood. The metal adapts firmly to the bristles and we found it to be very easy to clean. The dots on the detail layer and brush are especially strong and allow for precise layers and details. The price of the brushes is also very reasonable for the quality you get.
We will detail each brush below and what it is to be used for.
The first line is the TTCombat Army brushes, and includes six different styles for different painting requirements and techniques.
- Army – Basecoat Brush – The thick basecoat brush is designed to apply the first coat of paint after primer, the first base paint in each area. The emphasis for the brush is an even coat, without worrying too much about details.
- Army – Layer brush – The layer brush is thinner than the base coat brush, but its bristles still have depth, so you can create an even second coat from the base coat.
- Army – Detail Brush – The detail brush is used after layers are complete, and the small bristles are great for picking out the little details to make your miniature stand out.
- Army – Fine Detail Brush – The tiny bristles of the Fine Detail brush are intended for the tiniest parts of your miniatures, eyes and freehand marks.
- Army – Large Drybrush – Dry brushing is a technique where paint is applied to the brush and then cleaned off, leaving only a small amount which is gently passed over the miniatures to bring out the raised details. The large dry brush can be used for a larger area of paint, for faster results with less detail. Angled bristles allow more control in hard to reach areas.
- Army – Small Drybrush – The small dry brush allows for more intimate details, but always with the speed of drybusting. Angled bristles allow more control in hard to reach areas and small areas of detail.
The second line is the TTCombat Field Brushes and includes five different brush styles for different landscape painting needs.
- Terrain – Basecoat Brush – The Terrain Basecoat Brush has a wide bristle set, allowing you to apply a lot of paint in an even coat over a wide area of terrain, or lager miniatures.
- Terrain – Layer Brush – The Terrain Layer Brush is slightly smaller than the Base Brush, for more control with a larger amount of paint than Army brushes.
- Terrain – Detail brush – The terrain detail brush is smaller than the layer brush, but still has a large bristle head to hold more paint than army brushes, so you can choose the details on landscapes and larger miniatures.
- Terrain – Texturing Brush – The texturing brush allows for uneven painting on surfaces, giving a more random feel to wood, rust and fabric.
- Terrain – Stipple Brush – Stipple is a technique that allows you to apply a mixture of paint to surfaces, most hobbyists use a sponge to achieve the effect, but the Stipple Terrain brush gives the effect quickly, with the easy brush control and cleaning functions.
