Definitely that too but I wasn't even thinking that ambitiously and was referring to thing from terminator/primaris to ogryn sized.

Yeah, they said on FB that there was an error in the original video so they deleted it and uploaded a new version.

Several places are now but the word of release is February 2022. Unless they changed something. They still haven't put the full set up for preorder and I could easily see it being February especially with how far off release dates have been recently from every gaming company.

My missus saw the video from AP and wanted to surprise me with an early Christmas present.

Unfortunately, Quickshade and Speedpaint sound similar enough that I would have mixed them up too.

Oh well. I am out of nuln and agrax is nearly gone as well so these will still be useful.

From a few videos, they seem to be a heavier version of quickshades, which is exactly what I need.
Been painting full quickshades for a while though they tend to need several layers as they are very diluted.
gw contrast and scale75 instant colors aint good enough, but AP might have hit the sweet spot.

These are looking really good - like a perfect sweet spot between AP's current 'Tones' and Contrast (which I'm finding a little too heavy for most stuff).

I do find myself adding a lot of medium to most contrast paints. These do look very promising.

I add a lot of mediums too but I find that to be a positive as it's just the painter adjusting to tool for the look they want. Being heavy means that's easier to do.

That being said I am interested in these as well. Both Contrast and Insta paints are how I do 80% of my painting now days (everything but skin which I paint traditionally) and I'm sure I'll find these a great complement to those paints.

I needed to get some Contrast paints to do the Game of Thrones ASOIAF miniatures.. might take a look at some reviews for these, they look like they come out at about £3 a pot if you buy at discount for the starter, which is very reasonable.

A fairly unbiased review of the new Speed Paints from Squidmar:

Great review actually thanks for posting.

It gives me an overall idea of what to expect.

An issue I haven't seen in any other review is that Speedpaints can reactivate when you don't seal them, bleeding through the paint layers on top.

Also, here is a comparison between all Speedpaints and Contrast colours:

I like squidmar but not convinced that's a particularly fair review, as he's kind of ignored the intended purpose and audience for speed paint and only looked at it from his perspective.

Sure, I guess its interesting to see how useful they are for a top quality painter, using an airbrush, but that really isn't what they are aiming to be. He did a little bit on using them to quickly paint with just a brush, but that really has to be the main focus for a review of them imo.

I disagree, I think he gave them a decent go. He didn't spend a lot of time talking about airbrushing them, and the conclusion was basically "yep, they airbrush fine", which is a reasonable thing to review because a lot of people these days like airbrushing with contrast paints or inks.

Most of the time he spent talking about how they were to paint with a regular brush vs contrast which will be the reference point for most people. The gist seemed to be that they were more runny, pooled in the cracks more and were harder to control than contrast paints. Kind of like they're a thinned down ink, whereas contrast paints have more body.

Maybe you didn't like his approach to the review, but I found it really useful to get an idea of what to expect from them given I already have some experience with GW contrast paints.

From the sounds of things I'm not going to like them as much as GW contrasts... which would be unfortunate since they're sooo much cheaper and come in dropper bottles. I'll probably grab a couple of pots to try, maybe not a whole set.

Yep its a very useful review and he covered all that I wanted to hear about them. Not a fair review? Well you and me have different opinions on whats a fair review then since he tried to cover most painting angles.

Harder to control? All videos I saw gave me the opposite impression.
