Oh and the new lids have a tab at the back to keep them open now. It's good.
Can't say that's not persuasive. I'm not not going to have a look. I'm looking forward to trying them out.

I wasn't a fan of the way they went about the process and all the claims that surround it.

Thanks, GW, for making sure I buy something else besides your product.
Welp, I'll stick with Vallejo then.

So based on one persons opinion you'll not even try the GW paints for yourself and make your own mind up? I'm stunned.

I gave them a go and I love them. I love my vallejo paints as well, but these GW paints are very good. In fact I've been painting a tyranid today and the colours are smoother and blend easier then my vallejo colours.

I've heard a lot of people cry "mediocre" at the new Citadel paints. His comment is just one more on the pile. Vallejo, however, I have never ever had any issues with.
