I'm a big fan of conan, and the old 80s moviue has a special place in my heart (it's cheesy and great because of it) so this video made me smile

The ads are pretty funny, but I expect the actual revealed item will be a bit underwhelming.

They seem to be time traveling backwards with their movie references. Next one should be something from the seventies.

Jaws: “you’re going to need a bigger brush” (could show off the Sea Elf models...)
Star Wars: “We’re a paint commission service that paints models for gamers...”
“If you paint people’s models, where are your Citadel Colors?”

Conana is great, but being May 4th, I feel they really missed an opportunity to do a Star Wars joke.

Alien, Back to the Future and The Princess Bride would all make great follow ups!

Exalted, not just for the reference but also the likelihood that the revealed product will be underwhelming in comparison to the hype.

Something that appears to be from a Japanese GW store FB page. Seems to be a demo of new "contrast paints." There's other pics, but this is the most promising in terms of identifying what the new thing is.

Here's the whole picture. It's definitely a new range of paints. The woman is a well known painter in Japan. She is demoing contrast paints today. That pretty much confirms what it is.

I am genuinely exited about new paints!

Was not expecting a whole new line of paint.

They’re all in the large Shade pots too so I guess that means they’ll be around $9 a pot. Unfortunate.

So, looks like eight colors (on the poster and in the first pic)? Think these will be something similar to the Shades? How might they be different?

I believe they'll be something like the Hexwraith Flame technical paint they released last year.

The poster appears to be just general paint techniques, and has a mix of different stuff in those 8 pots.

All of the pots on the table are labeled 'Contrast'... So more than 8.

google translated tweet

"So, from the scene of the Shizuoka Hobby Show ... It seems that Citadel's new color series "Contrast" is a paint that adds a base, a shade and a layer. Just paint it and it's finished with a shade on the base color. There is also saturation, so it's beautiful. It seems to be a comingsoon (lol)"

Yup, sounds like a coloured ink to go over a pale undercoat.

It's quickshade! Just like the army painter stuff. Basically it's shade that does the work of highlighting the model, good for when you need to batch paint a bunch of less important troops.

Thanks, so it looks like 27 new colors.

That pic of the undead horseman looks pretty interesting. If it was painted completely with the new paints it looks like it was painted over a white basecoat.

So, yes, pretty much the same effect you can get with Army Painter inks or quickshades.

Nothing too revolutionary, but still great for those new to the hobby or younger gamers to get their models painted up to a basic level and they can get better at painting from there. I am sure that the great painters will point out some more advanced uses for these too. That said it proves that power armour generally looks poor when painted with a wash/contrast paint.
