I may eventually buy 1 Vallejo set. Whereas they may sometimes seem like a premium paint for miniatures, they measure up miserably against even low end student quality acrylics. When I painted over 30 years ago, we simply dipped into glass bottles. Most companies go the dropper route. Oh and I had never heard of a wet pallet. Formula p3 is the one line that uses pots. I favor that.
I haven't actually painted anything yet 🤣. Except a duplicate of a 54mm Russian/Ukrainian knight. And only to t he extent to figure out my skills are abyssmal. I duplicated it for fun using molding clay, and cast it in alumilite. It was a half assed rush job, but what was duplicated was very faithful to the original. Also reproduced a TT scale locomotive shell. That I believe I kept, the knight got tossed. And again painted the shell only to the extent, well you know. I do look forward to ptacticing.with the 3-400 minis I've bought in a year. Mostly historical. Mostly celts/gauls. My fave.
