Given the video was paint splodges on grey un-primed models, my guess would either be either:

Direct to bare plastic paints, no need to prime
Or
Spray paints/air brush.

Although the end slate saying prepare your brushes would lead me to believe it’s not going to be spray/air brush paints

GW has stated that they are working on an update to the Citadel Colour app in reply to a mention on Facebook that it hadn't been updated since 2019, so that's probably related to this announcement in some way (i.e., no pre-painted miniatures, etc.).

EDIT: Note that 'prepare you brushes' could be 'prepare your airbrushes' and would fit with some of the imagery in the video.

Paint concentrate for master painters. Water costs money to ship the extra weight. And snob painters will get to brag about how they perfected the exact amount of tears, tap water, or fountain of youth fluid to achieve the ideal consistency.

Not just dropper bottles, but proper squeezy bottles and you literally paint directly from the pot. You can pay a few pounds more and you get a sponge applicator to attract to the top of the pot.

They already made and discontinued the Artificer Tint set, a collection of pigment concentrates intended to alter the colour of full pots to make the exact mix for painting armies without having to work it out on the palette each time. Came with a sheet of stickers for each tint to record how many brush/tool loads were used. Disappeared after the last big expansion to the paint range.

There's a ton of colors that I would be ecstatic to have in spray format...so I'm gonna hope for this.

On a more serious note, choose your own colours? Use a RAL system or something to enable a specific colour mix to be made. Like the paint mixing stations in DIY stores where they mix whatever pigment mix into a blank set of emulsion.

So like the separate pigment system noted above but done in store or ordered digitally

Sprays for some Layer Paints would be nice.

But I would expecting dropper pots.

Most of the GW paints are already in triads of a Base and two Layer paints (e.g., Macragge Blue, Altdorf Guard Blue and Calgar Blue) as seen HERE.

I think some people don't realise that pre-painted models are pretty much impossible for GW. The only way they could financially achieve it would be to move production to a place like India or China where the labour costs are low enough to make it viable to pay people to prepaint.

It also destroys GW's "hobby" marketing which has been a cornerstone of their marketing for decades. They even use it as marketing for parents and schools when trying to get younger generations into the hobby.


The only way I could see GW doing it is if they shifted to 3D printer production and if colour 3D printers become a thing and become affordable enough to make it a worthy investment. Even then its still eating into the hobby marketing.

I'd not be suprised if we saw some new spray paints, a SOH green and a Averland sunset return seem possiable

What do you mean 'quick weathering effects'. Weathering effects' are in this sense the proverbial length of string... Limitless.

Weathering would be nice, but hardly groundbreaking as most weathering products already exist, made by much bigger players than gw, plus the video showed nice shiny parade ground armour.

I'm wondering whether its simply a new range of colours, maybe with additional inks for intensity, some new washes etc. Who knows.

Interference colours.
Like colour shifts but a) much rarer, so less derivative, and b) vastly more flexible because you can choose arbitrary base colours to put the interference layer over.

They could be jumping onto the Oil Paint bandwagon. Lots of youtube people have been talking the past few months about never using acrylics again.

Whatever it is, I don't think it will be all that amazing or revolutionary for painting like Contrast was. If it was, the perfect time to preview it would have been when they had all those painters and content creators at Warhammer World just a couple weeks ago for the HH preview.

If one had to guess, a new line of metallics including colored metallics (blues, reds, etc.) would make sense, especially as their metallics are a long ways from the best. Or perhaps some kind of new texture metallic line of paint you never knew you needed or wanted.

Quality Oils are already costly enough, I can't imagine what the price tag would be on GW branded Oils....

Oh yea, they'd also make them smaller tubes because Oils last a lot longer.

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

A GW insider I spoke to two months ago told me dropper bottles were coming later this year.

This could well be it.

Outside chance it is something else though. Paint pens are a possibility.

n'oublie jamais - It appears I now have to highlight this again.

The entire time I've been in the hobby, GW have always marketed the paints as suitable for children, never anything even slightly toxic - such as flow aid. Gotta make sure the parents don't get twitchy.

I definitely can't see them adding mineral spirits to the range! It would have to be water soluble oils, and even then that seems a bit of a stretch.

Fluorescent/neon paints for glow effects and stuff like escher hair. I've seen quite a growth in use of these, and it'd definitely fit the 'something colourful' and brush applied. In dropper bottles

As someone about to embark on a big Alpha Legion project I'd welcome a good miniatures-grade metallic green.
