I'm writing this, because I remember going into GW back in the early 90s, and being blown away by the ace paint jobs I'd see, displayed at the stores. But lately (well up to a year ago atleast) I noticed that the quality of paint jobs at my local GW to be a far lower level, than when I first started in the hobby. It was those amazing paint jobs that really inspired me to take up and stay in the hobby... and I'm still working slowly towards such a level, though I lack the patience. Part of the reason I'd go to GW is to get inspired by the work on display there... but now I usually come here, or a couple of other sites to get a good looksie at some pimp miniatures. But nothing beats seeing a nicely painted miniature in person.
Now I'm sure every GW store is different, and I'm sure that some have some really awesome painters on staff. But I was wondering, do you share this sentiment. Is there a lack of a master painters on staff at your local GW?
