over the last few years GW Paints have got smaller going from 18fl oz to the current 12fl oz and become more expensive going from 1 - 2.

I have discovered a place that sells the old style paint pots (18fl oz) in the same colours as the old range of GW colours and inks and they sell for less than the current GW Paints.

Thanks for the link! How long have you been buying and using these paints?

I too, am disappointed in the direction GW has taken their paints. They tend to dry out if you don't use them quickly as well.

What I would like to find out from everyone:

What do you use to seal your miniatures to protect them once they are finished? I like the GW Matte finish, as a Matte finish, but I think it can discolor the finished product if not used properly.

I normally use Krylon Matte finish, but the results are not always consistent. Sometimes it can leave a beautiful matte coating, but other times, its a bit glossy.

I bought a can of purity seal or whatever GWS matte varnish is and when I used it my models came out looking like they had been in a snowstorm. Fuzzy, white, opaque layer all over them. Boo! However I do have a pot of 'ard coat from GWS that I brush on models before they get a matte finish and I've had no problems with it.

I got a can of testors ultra matte coat that has worked so far. It came with dire warnings from the fellow at the hobby store about waiting almost a week for the models to dry before spraying and recommendations of lightly warming the can before use, but I haven't had any problems and I haven't strictly heeded his warnings. Seems to be very, very matte.
