Actually, I try to buy the 'best' (usually the most expensive) minis that I can afford, as my painting style, while barely being above 'wargame' level, does seem to get better results on better minis, while a bland mini results in a bland paint job.

Sooo, what do I mean by 'best'? That's probably harder to pin down, in 15/18mm I try to buy AB/Eureka and in 28mm I usually get Perrys (including plastic) or Front Rank. These seem to have enough detail and animation to suit my style of painting…

I am on vacation at the in-laws painting up some premium (to cheapskate me) minis and loving it. I am finding that I am putting more effort into the ones I paid more for. That may just be an effect of the fact that I am willing to pay more money for the type of mini I am likely to dote over while painting, or maybe I'm just trying to get my money's worth. Either way… do you find the price of a mini affects how much effort you put into painting it?
