What brand of paint do you use and where do you get it?

I use three different brands on my customs (not including spray paints). Vallejo is fine and they have a very large range of colors, however the quality is only so-so in my opinion. Some colors are highly pigmented and make it hard to apply smoothly.

I prefer higher-end brands like Tamiya and Citadel (Games Workshop's brand). They're both very smooth, low pigmentation although slightly more expensive brands. But the quality justifies the price I think.

When I use spray paint, I buy my cans from a store that sells to street artists. The brand I use the most is Montana. It's the cheapest brand too (about $4 per can), and it has an insanely wide range of colors.

Vallejo. I used to use 20 year old Folk Art, but moved on to Vallejo. Hands down I like it better. For dios and vehicles, the rough Folk Art still works.

I use the Citadel (Games Workshop) stuf for figures. For vehicles its Krylon Fusion. Citadels can be found at hobby shops or ebay. Krylon is available anywhere, including Walmart.

I discovered Krylon Fusion awhile ago it really does work well. Is there a specific type of hobby shop that carries citadel? Would I find it at a "regular" hobby shop, cuz mine doesn't seem to carry it.

Here in France, it's mostly the Games Workshop franchise stores that carry Citadel.

How is the coverage of Citadel? I just found out a comic shop near me sells it and I am on the fence between reaper (which I really want to try) and citadel (which I have heard some about). Recommendations?

Very good, I was able to cover Scrap Iron's black helmet with only a single layer of blue! ..and the paint is really durable too! I've never tried the Citadel clear coat though..
