Default Paint sets

Right should i go for the Vallejo Mega paint set, does NOT include inks for 130, or go for the Mega Citadel paint set from GW 150 (with inks).

I've never used Vallejo paints. So I would go Citadel.

I've never used Vallejo either, but they look great, and I'm going to get some ASAP.
So I'd go with Vallejo. About 90% of the painters I admire use Vallejo (actually, most of them mix it up, but for the most part Vallejo)
I laugh at the fools who thought Tau Online Chat Op is hard work! :shifty:

I'd say Vallejo - their regular colors are better and you won't be wasting paint due to the spillfree design. You get more paint per bottle for a lower price too. The brushes you get with the box are better than GW's too, but no series 7.

The only drawback is that their metallics are not so good - but you can make them work, and their inks are not so good either, but you can't beat the regular pigments and you'll be sitting with them 90% of the time.
