Possibly the best purchase I have made for this hobby.

    Now that is quite a bold statement and one that needs reasoning.

    I first started this hobby way back in 1984 and being young found painting hard but very rewarding, I practiced every day after school, sometimes until the early hours of the morning (mum and dad went nuts)

    After around 5 years I felt I could paint a decent model and being around the age of 20 I fell out with GW and left the hobby until my birthday in 2015 when my wife bought me a starter paint set and a box of Saurus Cav (she knew I loved Lizardmen back in the day)

    I painted them and that brought me here, I continued painting but struggled seeing details, I got my eyes tested and yep I now where spectacles when painting but still struggle with details, I can paint eyes etc but hardly ever bother because it's a big effort.

    Until now, oh my god I have seen the light and praise be I am blessed.

    I bought a Head magnifier visor and it is brilliant, I have only used it a few days but already I'm in love.

    Using it with the smallest magnification I can clearly see Saurus warrior eye balls and we all know they are a complete pain in the bottom.

    Honestly I can't endorse these enough, if you struggle seeing tiny details this item is a must.

    Here watch a review



    I purchased a Rolson one and if I was not married I would marry it.

    It bloody hurt like hell at first so I took the spec arms off and used the head strap very comfy after.

    I have one. I occasionally use it, but it causes me headaches.

    fucking bulky head be the death of me

    Sounds like a great purchase!

    The real question is do they make you look like Bubbles... :joyful:
