    Are these brushes okay?

    After watching numerous WarhammerTV vids on YouTube, here are the brushes I think I would need for my minis:

    extra small artificer brush
    small artificer brush
    small layer brush
    medium layer brush
    small dry brush
    texture tool

    this would come out to around 75 bucks. While Citadel/GW line are probably pretty great brushes if you can afford them. However, I saw these and was wondering if they would do just as well. They seem to be fair enough quality, but you guys know more about this stuff than me. Last time I painted a mini was back in middle school and even the Chaos-god Nurgle said it looked ugly. So yeah.

    But would these linked below be good enough substitutes or are GW/Citadel really the only way to go?

    I WILL be using Citadel paints however because, although expensive for how many you need, they really are high quality and look pro-level compared to hobby shop brands. Side by side you can definitely tell a difference.

    Are absolutely NOT the only way to go.

    These brushes should be fine. I use brushes that I think I get in a ~3-4 pack for 8-12 bucks. I bought several packs last time, so not replaced them in a while. I think I use Vallejo's brushes for some things, but really, any brush of the right size will probably get you where to want to be (though like dollar store or BIG packs are often poor quality for most brushes).

    The testors brushes should be fine. As you get more comfy painting, you can deem if these are the right size and feel for you.
