GW sprays aren't really primers. They're undercoats. If they were primers they would be identified as such on the cans.

It's one of those curiosities that Games Workshop "Citadel Colour" Spray Paint no longer says the word "primer" anywhere on the bottle (the newer 2010+ cans).

Looks like this is the change we are seeing. Foundation paints and secondary layers?


For the work blocked/if the auction gets taken down:


I don't get it. What's the purpose of the second layer paints? Isn't that the point of foundations? Are foundations the 1st layer? What?

So what the happened to these? Was this just a gag to throw us off, or are they going to make 'colours' available in larger quantities, since they're older paints? IIRC, catachan green isn't too old...

I'm thinking a lot of the old colors will be gone. I'm tempted to run stock up on some - but I've mentally committed to switching to Vallejo for some time now anyway.


Look agien. Screaming Bell is a metallic.

Wasn't their a darker bronze colour they disconnited? I can't remember the name of it, but that alot of people liked it....


I'm also kinda woundering that the diffrence between that Mechrite Red is, and the one they sell now.... Isn't it the exact same pot/label/everything?

May be wrong though.

Got an answer from the seller.

I asked;

These would be the as of yet unreleased paints? Where did you get them? Are they genuine Citadel Paints?

The reply came;

hi, yes , there are orginal paints, i never asked santa...., I think i have saw these paints in london shop...

Make of that what you will

April is the date stated in the official announcement, so no push back there.

I don't know how people have their paint dry out in GW pots at all. I had about 20 paints in various old pots sitting in a box for my ~4 year hiatus, and when I opened them, they were good as new. This is after sitting in extremely hot and dry garages and sheds for those 4 years.

The old style flip top pots are universally lauded as being excellent for preserving paints. There are numerous anecdotes floating about regarding people opening 20+ year old paint pots and the paint still being fresh.

The screw tops however, are a different matter. I have had loads of them dry up and I don't think I am alone.

I use mostly Vallejo but do apreciate some colors from Citatel that I consider worthwhile and would possibley use more GW paints if not for the low amount of paint per pot.

Recently I finished a snakebite leather pot (coat d´arms) that I got like 15 years ago and still use some other colors of the same era, on the other hand I had to throw out several screw tops of bleached bone and codex (or ultramarine or something horrible like that) grey that dried out as Filbert pointed out.
They wont ofc, but GW would take a huge step forward by going back to their roots.

I agree that the screw tops dried paint out way fast.

To me the bottle isn't the biggest deal as I already transfer all my GW paints into dropper bottles when I get them. It would be nice to cut that step out completely. Then again I'm phasing out of GW paints as much as possible these days.

I went to Vallejo for that reason alone. I don't paint very often and it's incredibly frustrating when you do get your paints out and find they have turned into powder.

No BS. Sitting in a cardboard box through several moves through several different climates. One area I lived in was freezing during winter and baking hot during summer, other areas mostly just hot.

They were, as others have said above, flip top lids, not screw tops, so that probably helped. The Flesh Wash and Chestnut Ink are still watery. I expected them to thicken up a little.

i have a few of the old flip tops from 3rd edition, they are still very much usable and even though they were a bit of a hassle to open i never had to toss dried up paint pots away like i do now. NOTE: most paint loss was due to the pot exploding on you when you opened it. i have many many many screw tops and new paints that are completely dried and have never been used. i would much rather have the difficult opening pots than to constantly be rotating my paint supplies due to them drying out.

i would also like to point out the paints in the picture look like old 3rd ed flip tops with newer labeling.

One big factor is if you paint straight from the pot. If you dip a wet brush into the pot I found the water transfer causes the paint to dry quicker in the pot. I'm trying to break myself of the habit.

Had a similar environment (moving, garages, hot and cold, dry and wet...), but all of my GW paints were rock-hard. Except for a couple bottles of Ink, there was no hope of reclaiming them. Surprisingly, the old reaper screw tops are just about good as new and my Vallejo came back to life with vigorous shaking. Seems to be luck of the draw.

I had a few pots (don't remember brand) that actually sounded like liquid when shook, but the cap had sealed to the bottle, making them impossible to open.

1) You don't need to register a mark to put "TM" on it. However, if you want to use (R), then it must be a registered mark.
2) You don't need to have a distinct term to slap a TM on a logo.
