Me too. I used to take them off the sprue but now I find I can paint hundreds at a time in that production line method. I have just finished 8 sprues of British Peninsula infantry this way and I am happy with the results. Certainly these are not for close up viewing but they certainly look cool on the table. Each to their own. I do enjoy seeing individual eyeballs on 1/72 scale figures but that just ain't for me.
