I'm looking to see what kind of paints one could use if not Citadel (which I find overpriced). So let me know about good paints t hat are easy to get.

vallejo game colors are great imo. they are slightly cheaper per can, but the bans are also slightly bigger, and most importantly, they do not dry out ever.

i have only recently started trying non-citadel colors, and so far vallejo game colors have been kind to me. i do not think that there are any replacement for badab black and devlan mud, but other than that they should pretty much cover anything citadel has.

here is a chart for converting citadel color names to the coresponding names of some other brands. its not a perfect chart, bu its decent.

vallejo (and plenty of other colors) can be bought at http://www.maelstromgames.co.uk/
great site, with free shipping and good prices.

Vallejo game and model! buy at maelstromgamesDOTcoDOuk They are very cheap and have free shipping to the entire world. But dont buy the Vallejo washes! they just fill up the recesess and they dont shade they just makes it white. Sad so go for Vallejo with GW washes. Thats how i role! Very Happy

I love Vallejo Game and Model Color, after I tried them, even though Citadel paints are denser.
