semi-hard Mungyo or Richeson.

I just started getting into pastels. I bought the 60 stabillo pencils, a 30 half stick of rembrandts, 30 handmade mungyo and a 16 half stick of unisons.

I read a lot of people use the harder thin sticks to do the initial layers, which is really the only type of pastel I still need. I have been thinking about getting the Mungyo semi hard square sticks.they seem to be a good deal, though Iíve read very mixed reviews from having low pigment and not blending well, to excellent smooth better than nupastels.

Now what Iím most confused about is I also read that the softer rounds are actually harder, but have more pigment. They also have the soft squares, would they be more useful then the semi-hards, or do I need a true semi-hard to round out the pastels I already bought.

Also what about the Jack Richeson hard pastels compared with the Mungyo.

Iím trying to get a brand hat is affordable but still high quality, and have pretty much settled between these two brands. I will not be buying nupastels, with the lightfast issues and the price tag, not for me. So if anybody could chime in and give me any advice I would be thankful.
