Unbelievably it seems Citadel don't even have a pot version of Corax white, I've spent the day being told by hobby shop attendants that Ceramite white is a match for it. WTF? Are they blind, or is it me?
Corax is a much greyer shade than Ceramite IMHO, I highlighted up
from Corax to Cerimite, and now I want to touch up the Corax areas, and They don't even sell Corax in a pot! How could Citadel not see the logic of selling pots of their spray paint colours for this purpose? Do the Hobby shop attendants really believe these colours match? Or are they just desperate to sell me the wrong paint and piss me off and lose a customer? Some seem to think all whites are the same from what I can tell. These shop's display cases are full of miniatures painted a hundred times better than I could ever dream of painting, did the hobbyists who painted those figures think any old shade of white was the same as any other? Why do they sell so many shades of white if it's all the bloody same?!
And the GW shop, no prices on anything (obviously if the price
is a consideration The Hobby (tm) is not the hobby for you), the paints and brushes are hidden away along the back wall behind the counter where you can't even have a look at them, with the store attendant standing guard over them like they were the crown jewels and looking down his nose at you like you're some grubby hobo wandered in from a methadone clinic down the street and likely going to try and make off with them the moment his back's turned.
The whole experience gave me a new appreciation of the high level of service and the warmth and friendly atmosphere of webstore shopping carts.
