I keep hearing about vallejo acrylics but haven`t used them yet.

Any opinions on how good they are and also where to get them from would be great.

In a word - Superb!!! As to stockists, I really can't say...Sorry! However, one thing you may want to check out is this book HERE! If you have never worked with acrylics, it is one of the best introductions around... Jim

Fabulous paints.

For a UK stockist, follow the links on the www.acrylicosvallejo.com website.

Love them! For the longest time I used Tamiya's acrylics to paint figures. Ever since I tried Vallejo I use nothing but that.

A good friend of mine who builds white metal figures swears by this brand. I'm very tempted myself to get using them simply because he says they are fantastic paints to apply with brush.
