It's fine once i've bought them, i usually stand around the FLGS using my phone to work out what the new name for the paint is.

The issue is with colours I rarely use, I still have some of them in white flip tops.

Ah, the white flip tops, back when they had washes and inks in different color caps (and before they took washes out of production so they could re-introduce them as a novel thing a few years later). How many times I tried to crack those open with my teeth, only to get a sprayed mouthful of paint, I don't know. Are your white flip tops the cylindrical (slightly tapering to the top) ones, of just the "newer" hexagon-shaped ones?

...how I do like reminiscing about old paint bottles.

haha yes, I did this so many times!

I only have cylindrical ones left. Quite a few though, and most are still in great condition...I used ye olde 'Regal Blue' for my thousand sons only last year...

I have hex bottles from games Day 1996 that I got for free after the paint table was shutting down after the event. Still good!

Strange, but not a Stranger.

After today's test run of the some Wyverns I don't care what they call IG anymore because that was FUN! I wrote about it on the front page under my post about their release and don't want to repeat myself but 48 hits in the first round of firing was pretty amazing, I felt like I was playing Tau

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Did they really change it? I thought "Astra Militarum" was something like high gothic for the "Imperial Guard". It's just as if the codex: Space Marines suddenly got renamed codex: Astartes oh wait....

"Star Military," actually, but basically, yeah.
