Brushes: Citadel paint brushes are each designed for a specific type of painting – from basecoating to drybrushing and washing.

Citadel Painting Mat: Designed to protect your kitchen table (or for the truly dedicated amongst you, your hobby desk) from the paint spillages that inevitably happen to even the best of us, the Citadel Painting Mat is a flexible silicon mat with a lip that will contain any spilt paints – no longer will you risk your tablecloth!

Paints: The Citadel Paint range provides more than 150 paints, each specially formulated to make painting your models an absolute breeze.

Palette: Always have a palette handy for watering down your paints and cleaning your brush between colours.

Water Pot: Keep your brushes clean and thin your paints (multiple thin coats are better than one thick one) with clean water.
