Perfect Paint Pot

Posted by Ochoin on 10 Sep 2021, 08:45

Feel free to mock me but I bought a Citadel water pot:

It's hard to tip over. Its got the cleaning ridges ("no loss of sensitivity"), a point-restorer & a handy place to place your brush, mid-painting. And it only cost $15.

True, an old jam jar is free but this has 'Citadel' embossed on the side!!

As I said, laugh. However, I'm going to buy a second one for metallic paints as I think it's actually pretty good.

Disclosure: I accepted a 6 figure* sum from GW for this unbiased review.

I wouldn't buy that but I also wouldn't mock you. Every merchandise has its buyer.
It is also like Citadel figure painting holder. I wouldn't buy it but lot of people are using it.

And don't worry, you're not even close to uselessness of brass toothpick or concrete rubble. :xd: :xd: :xd:

Ok, maybe they're not useless but don't worth money they cost.

I think most people agree that GW make some useful kit - that pot looks really useful - I use the cap off a rattle can, and the painting handle is brilliant, but they are extracting the michael a bit with their pricing.
I get it. They pitch their product at kids with bags of disposable income nd help them spend it.
And the problem is that they are convenient - in my case I have three GW shops within an hour's travel.
However there are better sources.
I bought some Greenstuff the other day from Goblin Gaming, it was £6 plus p&p for quite a lot, about three times the amount from GW.

GW don't sell it any more, they do sell their really useful liquid green stuff but a bottle of it is £4.
