Default The new foundation paints! Are they any good?

Okay thought it belonged here could be wrong,

I was writting up my paint list seeing as I need a whole new batch so 46 odds worth of painting stuff, then I came across the 30 Foundation boxset now want I want to know is are they as good as GW wants us to think? The colours could be helpfull as I want to paint a gundam or two up and a Metal gear solid collection of converted figures (for a mate).

Want to change the way you paint forever? Then the Citadel Foundation paints are for you! This fantastic new paint range has been specially formulated to complement the existing Citadel Colour paint. The Foundation Paints have been designed to provide great coverage, creating a solid block of colour with one application over any undercoat. This set contains all 18 of the Foundation Paints and you'll get them over a month earlier than the individual pots! Astronomicon Grey, Adeptus Battlegrey, Fenris Grey, Necron Abyss, Mordian Blue, Hormagaunt Purple, Mechrite Red, Macharius Solar Orange, Iyanden Darksun, Tausept Ochre, Tallarn Flesh, Calthan Brown, Gretchin Green, Knarloc Green, Orkhide Shade, Charadon Granite, Khemri Brown & Dheneb Stone.
Anyways

Do they coat in one?
Do they go well with the existing colours?
Are they worth my time?

Well I was at my local GW and the manager gave me a shot to see how the foundation paints were (I was painting my Tyranids) the red and blue are amazing they give you the best basecoat ever. All I had to do after the basecoat dried was a little highlight with blood red and enchanted blue.

I'll be getting some of these as soon as I can. I saw that one of the colors was mordian blue. Looks like my Mordians get their paintscheme picked for them. I also want to use these paints for my Tau vehicles.

They are great news for Yellow schemes.
Yellow coats over black in one coat. Sweet huh?
