What I needed, at a good price and speedily delivered.
They seem to be doing the job well, helping with the mixing and revitalising of my (expensive) Citadel paints. Makes the whole thing more sustainable, too, as I am not having to throw out so much dead paint. May not help GW's profits, but my pocket money is going further.
