Windsor and Newton Series 7 Brushes
We spend a fortune on miniatures we then add to our unpainted lead pile. We go out of our way to buy paints we might use only a couple of times, and then they dry up. However, we try and get away with using the cheapest brushes available and expect them to do a good job and last ages.

These are the ones I use. If you're serious about painting in this hobby, you owe it to yourself.

Windsor and Newton series 7 'Miniature Brushes'. VERY expensive (now). They've actually gone up about 20% since I last bought them a year ago. Typically I buy three a year and they usually last about 18 months before they shed bristles. That said they still have a point. I've never had one 'hook' in almost 15 years of using them.

Read the reviews before you buy and see what pothers think. Worth every penny.

Master's Brush Soap. Essential for brush health. Again, don't take my word for it. Read the reviews;

Couldn't agree more. Quality brushes are a must. Although I am not in your league for quality of painting I usually buy either AS Handover or Rosemary brushes from the internet. I find them cheaper than art shop brushes. Only use pure sable as the synthetic ones bend over at the point.
You're right John. Rosemary are a very good compromise for price/quality.
