What are these markers you speak of? Last time I used one of those it was scratch and sniff.

Ya, basically a paint brush masquerading as a felt tipped marker. Huge in the Gundam community and makes "painting" your models very accessible. They have large chiselled markers for ares and fine tips for details and recessed lining. But imagine paint markers matched to GW colours that you could wash over or use to highlight after a wash.

I’m wondering if it’s more than a single product type we’re looking at.

Thinking back. GW really started working on their paints about 10 or so years ago, with the Foundation Range. Higher pigment for easier base coats (the yellow was a revelation to me!). Then came the first set of excellent washes, including Devlan Mud.

What felt like relatively shortly after came the current range. Base, layer, wash, etc. And that’s a range they’ve added to periodically with Technicals, and the odd colour here and there as a faction benefitted from it.

Air came next as a further expansion.

Whilst no painting guru, I can’t think of a paint archetype they don’t currently offer in some form.

So it could be a reworked paint range, a new way to apply (their spray base colours are a god send after all), or as others have intriguingly suggested, edging pens, formulated to exactly match existing colours (so no poor sod has to forgo them for sake of a consistent palette across their army).

Yet I’m not entirely convinced it is the pens. The brushes GW offer already include chisel tips.

I’m really at a loss this time. I don’t think it’s a branded airbrush, because one imagines that would’ve been sorted when they did the Air range.

Can't you simply order that color from Instar Paints? I'm pretty sure they have a relationship to the previous generation of GW paints in a manner similar to how Coat D'Arms are just the old hexpot paints from the mid-late 90's rebranded and sold in circular pots.

Unfortunately it's not exact. I ordered some from InStar and I still have a couple old pots and the Granite is a fair bit darker without a doubt. At least as far as me or any camera I can find can tell...

I really wonder if the result can live up to the hype they are pushing because it's a freaking lot of hype and I got no idea what new paint product they could release lol.

Well, in a sense, isn't the point of hype, to make something "more than it really is?"

If it "lived up to the hype" than it wasn't hype, it was a factual statement.

So, of course this will be some product that likely already exists (somewhere), already is being used and is not at all revolutionary. Because if it was "that big a deal" you wouldn't need to market it at all, it's utility would essentially be self-evident.

Prior experience has taught me to temper my expectations over GW hype. But there will be others who will not be satisfied by anything less than (and somewhat appropriately given the teaser theme)Matrix style implanted skills that let them paint to Golden Demon standard.

I'm going with it being a dip, like Army Painter's Quickshade. If they can make it even easier than the Quickshade, they could have a winner on their hands.

Instar are reverse engineering from old paint rather than being the manufacturer of the original range like Coat D'Arm, but their stuff is pretty good

(I've got my fingers crossed their new Scorched Brown will be close enough as mine is down to the last gunge at the bottom of the pot)

If you've not tried it yourself have a go as the paints seem to be closer than the on screen colours suggest (I wonder if some of them dry a slightly different colour than they are when wet, and the on screen stuff is based on wet paint?)

It's going to be fun watching the internet lose its collective mind when, after all this hype, it just turns out to be dip.

The aim of hype is to make it so on release date people are very excited about the product. If done well, people are excited before the product release, AND some time after the reveal. If done wrongly, people are very excited before the product release, and lose all excitement on the day the product is revealed.
What I meant was that I wasn't sure what they could release where the excitement would survive after the actual product reveal.

I predict whatever this ends up being is going to be a major let down. But it for sure won't be anything revolutionary.


Still.... I'd be lying if I said I wasn't very intrigued.

I'm prepared for this. They're hyping it up like they're reinventing the wheel but at the end of the day there's only so many technologies you can invent that Apply Paint to Tiny Model.

Airbrush, markers, dips, all things that make painting *faster*, all fair guesses, none of them stunning and worthy of this much hype.

You know, I actually wonder about this. Over the last year or so, what with their social media presence expanding so rapidly, I wonder whether these teaser vids (these two as an example, but i'd say there are others) are just the in-house media team finally having been given free reign to do promotional material.

So it might not be so much of "Look at this brand spanking new product that will be change the whole game" as just a bit of "Our wings are no longer clipped and look what we're finally allowed to do for the fun of it!"

The amount of effort they are putting into announcing a new pain product is abit crazy, yet the tension is killing me to found out now lol. So I guess it's working.

Looks like Army Painter is pushing their Quickshades with a very GW-esque model right now. Seems like they also think it's a shading product.

The first line of that does sound though like they're trying to get in a reminder that they did it first before the GW product drops.
