After quitting WH40k for a while, i am now considering returning. I am however hit again with one of the reasons i quit it in the first place - its so darn expensive. The paints are 4 pounds EACH!
I do recall a lot of people were saying they used non-gw paints and were perfectly fine. So my questions are:
1) Can someone recommend me a UK-available place/way to buy cheaper paints that will work fine on WH40k minis?
2) Someone recommended me Valejo from maelstrom games - are they any good?
3) @(2): I noticed they come in "bottles" rather than cans, how do you get the paint on brushes? Find a small "hole" and fill it with paint from the bottle and then dip the brush into it or?
4) Same question about brushes etc, does anyone know any good maker of brushes that is available on amazon etc that i can use instead of the "they-must-be-made-of-gold" citadel brushes/glue/etc?
Thanks a lot in advance!
Edit: changed "not" to "now" in the first line. Awkward typo is awkward.
