I went to a local art shop and got some Westart synthetics for 2 bucks apiece. I bought 5 brushes for the price of one GW brush, and they have been just as good for me. The only problem was that they hold *some* colours, mainly reds. So I just got another one to use just for red paints, and another to use just for whites. It still worked out a lot cheaper than the GW brushes, and I'm happier with them than the two GW brushes I do have.
