Has Games Workshop/Citadel Miniatures finally come to their senses and started releasing paints in convenient, air-tight dropper bottles? Hardly. But frustrated with Games Workshop bottles’ notorious habit of drying up long before the paint is gone, a hobbyist took matters into his own hands. Using dropper bottles found on eBay, he transferred his paints, and even their clear-printed labels, to bottles that will surely be kinder to his significant investment in high-priced hobby paints.


This is a particular pet peeve of mine as I’ve gone through several generations of Games Workshop paints, dried before their time, while some Ral Partha paints from THE EARLY NINETIES are still in service on my hobby bench. I stopped buying Citadel paints because of this. But maybe I’ll just go this route from now on.
