Whose paint is better vallejo or GW.
I've never used vallejo and want to know if will deliver better results than GW paint.
The differences with the paint are minor if you know how to treat the paints.
Its just that Vallejo paints come in dropper bottles and are cheaper..
GW paints are good, but they're too expensive for me to use practically.
I use Delta Creamcoat.
I use both, though I have to admit that I like GW paints best despite the fact that they are slightly more expensive.
Vallejo paints are good because the range og colours is much bigger than GW and you can almost find any colour you want, unlike GW (have you ever seen a decent dark-grey GW paint...?).
I recommend both ranges...
Sorry guys this is all abit alien to me. What exactly are Vallejo paints? Are they a US only company or are they available in the UK and Ireland? Just wondering, they seem really nice from what I've heard.

I just bought a few Vallejo and Reaper paints to compare to the GW ones. I grabbed the Vallejo equivalent of boltgun metal and I like it better so far. It's a bit thinner while still retaining as much "sparkle" as the GW version that goes on too thick to be of use in fine areas. I haven't tried the Reapers yet but I found a really cool metallic red that will look nice on my storm troopers.
As for UK availability of Vallejo, I don't know. My local game store here in the US had reaper, vallejo, and GW paints. The price difference wasn't really that much...Vallejo was the same price as GW non-metallics. (GW metallic paints cost more for some reason) Reaper was .50 cheaper but had less of a color selection than vallejo.
