Default Major Change coming to Citadel Paint Line

I have it on good authority, though we still don't know the details, that there will be a major change to the Citadel paint line that I believe will be announced in the next month. I don't know how much more I can or should say about this, but a mod or admin can feel free to PM me for the info behind this. Suffice it to say that my local shop is only ordering enough to restock for the next 2 weeks.

Personally, I'm hoping for a change over to the popular squeeze bottles of Vallejo, Reaper, and others. It could be an entirely revamped line, though.

Discuss away!

Interesting.... I hadn't heard anything about them changing their line. If they do go with a different packaging, like a squeeze bottle, hopefully they won't be stupid enough to raise the prices.

I still prefer the old line that coat d arms used to make for them, The newer paints just seam too white still for my liking.

Sadly, if this is true, I don't think you are far off the mark.

It's only within the last sort of year that they moved the citadel paints over to the style of the foundations and washes though?

They're fools if they raise the price of the paints again though. Even know its cheaper to get a higher quantity paint that's as good/better in quality from several other manufacturers.

A indie retailer friend of mine has been told there will be a bottle re-design, but no info on what or price as yet. Apparently the colours will not be changed though.

Other than the foundation paints and washes I think Citadel paint is pretty mediocre compared to Vallejo but an eye dropper bottle would be welcome.

I'm not a fan of the brush dunk and scoop.

Yeah I take pictures of hot girls. Some one has to.

a local retailer by me has also spoken about this, hopefully wash pots become standard, the snap back lids are handy.
