I've been doing brutal only as well. One reason is to make the campaign last as long as possible.
Second reason is that it is more enjoyable having to think properly. Instead of just go with some units, or mass units. And win.
The last 4 maps I played went soo close. I had 1-5 units left and was base/objective trading with the computer. As in the computer is killing my base, I'm out of all minerals+expansions. And the computer is destroying objectives or making me fail mine.
Then I have like 1 hellion+scv left attacking to the last structure or objective left.
Feels quite epic hehe. Usually I have to restart a map 2-3 times after playing it until I lost. Then trying out different things or different upgrades bought. And usually get it right on 3rd try.
Ps. massing is quite hard/impossible on this mode in later on in the game. Also I was so surprized on the first mission. I died because I just pressed attack move. I needed to micro those low hp marines to back, to have enough units to finish it.
I 've done almost all on brutal and a couple in hard. If I come back to those did in hard later after I complete the campaign, and complete them in brutal, will I still get the kerrigan icon?
Yes! Make sure you keep a saved game before doing the last missions just to be sure.
