9 New GW Paints!





9 New Paints join the Citadel line, are they worthwhile or crap? Of late the new paint line seems to be hit or miss. I plan give them a try, they are apparently for extreme highlights and appear to be very bright. Figure khaki, Blue Horror, Flayed One Flesh, Gauss Blasters Green and Dorn Yellow will be my test choices. Lilac is interesting but not sure how useful. Same for Orange, Pink and the Aqua blue color one.

What are your thoughts?

  1. They're actually really good man. The GF got me some for Xmas and I use them to lighten colours instead of using whites. It makes the colour transitions much more natural and gives the paint job a more pastel look to it. So definitely a fan!

    1. I may have to try that technique.

    1. I may grab a few soon and try them out. Been trying to be good and save my cash for May from my allotment of funds for entertainment....plus I want to do a huge Bolt Action order soon.

  4. I haven't tried any of the new range. There are simply too many colors. I have been transitioning away from GW paints over to Army Painter and P3 ranges. Of course I still have plenty of older foundation paints and think they're great, but as they run out I haven't been replacing them with the current range.

    1. I like the P3 range, played with a few colors and I like the result. The Army Painter sprays work well, just expensive as hell. Still, it saved me a ton of time on my Dark Angels base color.

      My buddy joked you will open them and by the time you are ready to use them they will dry out.

      One of my favorite paint lines is the Foundry Paints (similar in size to the P3 and same lids) they are sold in sets of 3 which is nice as you get a base, highlight and edge all in one....
