Agree with Stell and Horus... I've tried it and I either end up with them looking terrified or with a great big mess.... Mostly the mess... On a few, I've just put a blue dot in thier eyes... but it really dosen't add anything to the overall effect... IMO.
For example, I had actually did this guys eyes and you can't tell... so after that, I said the hell with it and removed a process step.
Bother or not bother, I guess it really depends on whether you want to do it or not. In most cases the eyes wont stand out, but even so, you know yourself that your minis are painted to a high standard which should make you feel good. If you really aren't that bothered about it, then Stella is right - dont bother.
Regarding the actual technique, what I do is take the thinnest brush you got (one for real fine details) and then cut off its hairs, leaving only 2 or 3 left. Then with that, and a steady hand, get some black paint and go for the centre!
