    Hi guys hope this in the right place and I now this has been gone over numerous times so sorry about that.

    I have been doing my due diligence on paints and what I need to start off with I will be going with acrylics now the question which do I go for so would like if you don't mind a bit of input from you guys

    The first one I have been looking at are the AK 3rd gen and they have a set to start you off

    2nd I have been looking at are the reaper kits the core and the layer the only problem I see with those I dont want the brushes or the minis that come with.

    3rd I have been looking at and really like the look of is the artists acrylic in a tube scale75 or the AK

    the last one I looked at id the scale 75 set they do now it is a lot but it would be doing double duty on my dioramas

    So any input would be greatly appreciated also brushes I do have W&N series 7 but dont really want to start off with them can any nody point me in the right direction for some decent flats and rounds I already have a lot of brushes but a few more directed at figures would be great.

    Thanks for readiing this
