New Paint Testing!

Nick speaking,

I managed to get to my local GW yesterday and have a go with some of the new paints. They didn't have them all, but there was a few in each range there for me to try. I have to say, from what I have seen so far, the new paints seem excellent. The new White covering black will make a huge difference to many I am sure! The new dry brush was amazing, and the new shadow (washes) were exceptionally good, but...

What I went in the store to find out really, was if all my old colours were going to be anywhere near the same. I am half way through two of my armies (Eldar and Nids) and of course, still expanding on my Necrons. They didn't have the new equivalent of my Liche Purple, but they did have the new equivalent of Mordian blue, Macragge blue. Sadly, Maggragge blue is a totally difference colour to the old version, and that was worrying!


I have just got myself a couple of Ghost Arks and Venomthropes with my birthday money from a few days ago. I was going to buy a Tervigon with what I had left over, but this new paint viewing has scared me into buying up loads of my favourite old paints instead! I am sure, if you are starting a new army, like when I eventually get around to painting my Space Wolves, the new paints will be amazing, but I would recommend anyone who is half way through an army to go out and buy as many of the old paints as you can, especially if you want the army to look the same!

  3. I remember when they scrapped the scorched brown wash... I'd washed half my army with and waited a month to finish and it'd gone.... I never got round to finishing the army!!
