Default Kolinsky Brushes and Vallejo Paints

Im getting sick of the GW paints and brushes, so im switching to Vallejo,Reaper and Kolinsky.

I live in Europe and havent found a shop that sells Kolinsky brushes.

Does anyone know of a website where you could order these brushes?

Another question regarding the paints, ive been looking around and noticed that there are two types of paints: Game and Model, which one do you use?

I started using Vallejo paints recently, all i can say is a little goes a long way with those. They cover very well, second coats are now rare for me.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

Yeah I've never really relied on the GW brushes that much since i can usually find ones that are about equal quality for cheaper. I've used a few Vallejo colours, mostly just colours GW discontinued, and was rather impressed. The dropper bottle is a godsend for paint mixing! Nice coverage and it seems to have a slower drying time than the GW stuff which gives you more time to work with it. However i have heard that their metallics aren't quite as good

I have one. I've had it about a year now. I have used it for every mini I have painted after that, and no signs of olding!

If you're into that style of painting . In some cases it can work, especially if you're trying to simulate some kind of carbon fibre or advanced composite. However, to me the teeth of a chainsaw should always be metal

I use "Crafter's Select" brushes... a tad expensive, but its ok because I "borrowed" them from my mother.

They're very high quality brushes.
