GW paints are above average price, but I wouldn't say they're too high. As for the paints themselves, there's nothing special about them (aside from some of the technical paints and contrast), aside from the fact that if you're going by one of GW's "how to paint" video's or using the citadel paint app, it will only reference GW paints and the specific shades and colors of those paints.
16 colors like these should serve me well enough then, right?

To just practice and learn how to paint/highlight/etc, that's more than you need.

To actually paint up an army? Maybe, it depends on what color scheme you end up using, that set could end up being just what you need, or it might up being mostly useless.

Practising would be a lot easier if I actually had figures I'm willing to use for that purpose. Unfortunately, the store won't open until 15th march.

Like I was saying to Zach eariler, if you don't have/want to use 40k figures, just grabbing some army men or something to practice on is a much cheaper way to learn.
