Probably going to go with Citadel paints. Easy to get hold of, and I've worked with them plenty in the past.

I use those too, mainly because we've still got so many from our warhammer days (or in my case: my 40K days). Not that most get used mind, I don't have use for colour that much.

The one thing I hate about them is that they tend turn into bricks very quickly and every time they come up with a new jar for them, they close worse than the previous ones.
With Vallejo you never have this issue, I've never had a paint by them dry out before, and seeing I can get both really easily in Antwerp, I've started to avoid GW whenever I can (basically I only ever go in for brushes and chaos black in a spray can).

I need to figure out a new kind of varnish though because that new satin finish to purity seal is all the suck. Gawds, what a mess.

Whoa! Just read your article about repaints, the Maverick looked really good after the repaint! I might just have to take some of my son's old nerf guns that he no longer uses and mod them for fun. :D

Thank you :)

I love modding Maverick's I'm going to do a copper and dark green mod for my friend Charlotte soon (as is obvious, we refuse to go near the chick Nerf series they've just released, no Rebelle for us!) ^^

The 'chick Nerf' stuff looks terrible.

Mind you, I don't much like the zombie stuff, either.

I helped a friend's kid mod a Rebelle Sweet Revenge today.
They're even uglier in real life ><
At least it is now respectable colours!

I like the Hammershot and the Sledgefire of the Zombie Strike series, I'm not keen on the others either.
A lot of my friends are waiting for the crossbow to come out, I think that one will end up being a popular model.

Went on the sword making course last weekend. Now the proud owner of a hand crafted sword! :D

Was a lot harder than it looks.

Will do, when I get them. (There is a memory stick of them in the post.)

I think I'd like to learn how to make LARP weapons at some point.
It'll make a nice change from repainting Nerf guns :)
