To start it all, for my minis I am using Citadel Color paints (GW). A number of people were asking whether is possible to use paints by other manufacturers. The simple answer is yes, it is possible. Andrea, Racham and Vallejo brands are as good as GW and are successfully used by many miniature painters. If you prefer paints by Vallejo you might want to use the table of correspondence between GW and Vallejo here.
This text should not be considered as a cookbook to be followed exactly. Miniature painting is a creative, «trial and error» driven process. Experiment! Don’t be afraid to use new techniques. If you decide to repeat color schemes described below but you are missing specific colours I was using do not despair and use different ones (or paints from different manufacturers). By mixing appropriate replacements you will end up with something very similar or even identical to the paints I was using here.
Another important point. I always use relatively diluted paints (at least 2 parts of paint to a part of water, more often equal amounts paint and water)…..
