    Haven't used it before, but knowing other Vallejo products, this will probably be very good quality.

    A better and cheaper solution would be to airbrush Klear onto your model, that's an acrylic, clear, glossy floor varnish that costs just a few Euro's for half a liter and is of superb quality for painting and airbrushing. Klear's actually a UK brand but there are a lot of modeling pages on the internet describing several international products of equal quality.

    The question on brush size doesn't really work, deathz - Kolinsky Sable is a material, not a size. In fact, the smaller Citadel brushes are made of Kolinsky Sable anyways!

    It's kind of like asking, what's bigger, a Rhino or a Vehicle?

    if the citadel brushes are kolinsky sable why do people swear they're much lower quality than reaper brushes?

    Perhaps they use cheaper sable or give it some kind of chemical treatment?

    I probably shoul have said windsor kolinsky sable brushes. As in is it a size 0/1 00 etc. Also I assumed all other brands go by a similar size guide (perhaps wrongly) unlike GW. F.E most craft shop paints arent called dark angels green etc.

    And theres not much wrong with GW brushes, but as with anything you'll never know what you prefer if you dont try the others.

    The majority of Citadel Brush heads are made from kollinsky sable, with the remainder made from dark ox hair and custom-cut nylon fibres -

    I use Vallejo primers and varnishes (matt, satin and gloss) and they are all excellent (I have not found a better primer). They are on the expensive side though, but you pay for quality.
