I use a magnifier headset for painting figures, although at the age of 45, nearly 46, my eyes are a bit dodgy at times (I should probably get them checked out anyway), but even though I probably don't have the 20/20 pilots vision I had back in the late 90s, I still paint better at times than I did back then I feel.

They should put a warhammer store in Heathrow. Waiting for international connection. Could get a skirmish game in and pick up some toys for the trip back.
Captive audience with everyone waiting sure the rent is a bit high though.

As for old man eyes... late 40s. Progressive lenses help a huge amount. Depth perception is another thing.
Honestly its why I like older models that are more practical. There is such a thing as too much detail.

I’ve brought some magnifiers recently, it’s kinda nice to be able to get the models up close again like I used to do. I don’t like painting far away, I like painting up close to my face and it’s a choice of looking over the top of my glasses and closing one eye so I can use the one that’s super good at close detail - or use the magnifiers and actually have depth perception again.
I had trouble with depth perception under a magnifying lense/light.

WarCom published an article with the winners at the Adepticon Golden Demon. I've been a bit of a sump-dweller recently, but the painting and modeling mastery on display is just awesome! It's a real pleasure not just to appreciate the painting, but also all the little basing, scenery, and weathering details in pretty much every model. I only wish WarCom would publish a whole mess of in-depth, in-detail photos of these models!
