Groovy. But 6 pack? Are we supposed to buy 6 bottles of same paint at once?

That's the order sheet for retailers, who I guess have to order paint in bulk.

Duncan must be having a mental breakdown trying to keep all this painting stuff straight. Having to alternate between paint names and various GW and FW brandings for similar things along with rapidly switching between "don't forget to thin your paints" and "slather the (contrast) paint on" must be stressful.

The clear colours are under the air range but there also bring the others as base and/or layer as well.

I honestly find that more exciting than the contrast paints.

Your last point is especially laughable and comical, because not only the 7th ed Valkyrie shown dumber things (like being able to throw the troopers without parachutes out of its hatches, no harm done) - Irbis

This is actually gak. I had to sell my Salamander army off due to them discontinuing these paints last year. I had no way to keep the same paint color consistency.

Seriously? Even two bottle from the same range won't be completely consistent. I can understand not wanting to mix paints, but if you already have a painted army........

Selling an army because you can't get a paint seems a bit drastic. This is why I always advise learning to mix paint.

Unfortunately, due to inconsistencies in paint composition and materials, mix a perfect duplicate of a given paint is neigh impossible. It's the reason that people use empty paint bottles, becasue producing exactly the same mix and exactly the same shade a second time can be a pain.

also, it's hard to make exact duplicates of greens sold by GW if you don't know what pigments went into them in the first place.

Or if GW discontinues the colors you use to mix another color .

Yes, because not everyone (multiple shops) around me continuous carry Vallejo. All carry GW and most carry Army painter, even then I run into times where they are out of stock as most people around me buy GW. I started with Ral Partha paints decades ago, but consistently return to GW because I’m used to their flow, and I know I’m I never the minority as I don’t like dropper bottles . Yes I paint straight from the pot.

No kidding. I especially like the use of the word 'had to' in that post. Bizarre.

I guess I'm just not that picky. I don't paint armies so maybe it's not my place to say, but I don't mind a slight deviation in unit paint hues. Very much like you'd have in real life. And I think it's always possible to get a colour close enough that you wouldn't be able to notice the difference, so long as you know which colours to mix.

No ta one around me does, and Citadel is $15 a pot in the single shop that carries that. Amazon is my friend.

Man I'm still salty about the White Scars... they are such a unique Legion with a super distinct aesthetic. I was looking so much forward to them being one of my fav legions since "Scars" and... they look more vanilla then the fracking Ultramarines. A Tartaros pattern Termi unit which just has Glaives and nothing more and the golden Keshig who are just normal bikers with lances... wow how amazing. They couldn't even give them the Bullock patern from the books?
Spoiler:
even their special units are extremly boring as a concept almost all legions have super unique fun unit concepts I mean the BAngles have a freaking Dread with a Jumppack what do we get boring vanilla Terminators, some reskinned bikes and a cool speeder wooow... whats next? The Khan is just a normal Praetor model with a sword or smth Sorry for ranting but I'm still extremly salty about this. The scars should've been on the same level of uniqueness like the Sons and the Wolves (ouch) but they are just super boring.

Yeah... What a missed opportunity. I mean, I get that they need to fit the generic line, but they could have had way more distinct ornamentation than mini-shields, tassels, greenstuff texturing, and a few do-dads and weapons.

From a rules perspective they have AP2 close combat weapons at initiative, on CC terminators, a CC jetbike squad with AP2 at I again, An infiltrating unit with all LCs, and a unique speeder weapon loadout. My Varagyr would kill for AP2 at initiative stuff and free FNP. From a model perspective they are far better sculpts then the SW got, excepting perhaps the Deathsworn.
