I started this hobby last week and was informed that I had to paint the figures. So I have a few questions 1)How extensively do I need to paint the models to be playable in store? 2)Do I have to use Citadel paints? 3)What is a good amount to buy to have a decent verity to paint my starter box of Seraphon? 4)Is it better to build then paint or paint in pieces? I ask because the shields and bases have blocked some areas of the models. 4) Is it better to get paint from a craft store or the hobby store?
