Just read this over on another forum so thought it might up date this thread
"I got this info passed onto me about the new GW paint changes.

I've never gotten rumors from this source before, so I cannot vouch for their validity (so take this with whatever amount of salt you'd like):

-144 colours are in.
-lots of renaming of colours, nothing is leaving.
-All in different catagories now, Shades (washes) bases, layers, glazes (thin washes) and textures.
-Prices are staying the same.


So it sounds to me like the main thing GW is doing is reorganizing the line to make it more clear which paints/washes/etc are designed to be used in what situations.

"I doubt they are really going to do anything to their main paint line so I would expect to see the Mega Paint Set stay the same and the base/highlight paints become secondard sets. Maybe even see triads."

Triads?
Whatever next?

In this case they mean a set of three paints intended to work together, like a base, mid and highlight color for something like flesh.

Yakuza? Just think of the bitchin' gamer tattoos that might be available in-store! Although, balancing that out, you might have to chop off a finger everytime you lose a game in-store as well. Ah well, easy-come, easy-go...

Because obviously the general public is to thick to figure out "When you want to paint red, use red"


Sorry, just being an asshat

That's nice, actually. Most beginners need some help in choosing paint and the order in which to apply them.

just picked this up elsewhere

• There are 144 paints (the current line is only 73), so the range is doubling in size.

• Broken down into Bases (foundations), Layers (normal colours), shades (washes), Dry (essentially goopy paint for dry brushing), Glaze (thinned washes for easier blending), Texture (sand + colour) and Technical (liquid green stuff).

• Bottles are not changing.

• Every color is renamed, there will be a white dwarf with a comparison guide released. Blood red is now wild rider red, ultramarine blue is Calgar blue, skull white is white scar etc etc. There is a big expansion in the greens. There are pinks again, and more purple.

• Foundation white!! Named Ceramite White

• New how to paint book that includes a 90 minute DVD

• Mega paint set available year round now, but is super expensive apparently. Prices are apparently the same (for now).

So it sounds like there is only good news then?

144 paints at 2.30 each comes to 331.20 - but the previous mega paint set appears to have been priced at 2 a paint, with the other stuff thrown in for free. That would come to 288 for the mega paint set. Wowzers.

More pinks and purples; that could save me some mixing.

Foundation white and glazes are very exciting. I hope they'll be as good as the washes.
