I think it well might be direct-to-plastic paints with no primer required.

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.

They may well have previewed them to those visitors, with an embargo on talking about it until after the HH release.

They already have those. Acrylic paint doesn't really need a primer, particularly on plastic.

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.


As in armour thats taken a beating; scratches, chips and dirt. I've yet to come across such a thing save for lengthy painting tutorials on Youtube, although I wouldn't mind a point in the right direction all the same.

I would love a new line of metallics in all different shades besides gold or silver. Its about time Space Marines were shiny.

Army Painter have a range of coloured metallics, and the Coat D'Arms range includes GW's original coloured metallics from back in the '90s.

Although you can also achieve a good coloured metallic affect with Contrast over silver or a pale gold.

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.


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.
Seriously. Even as expensive as some oil colors are per tube, most of them still work out cheaper per ml than GW paints, until you get into the more expensive pigments. I doubt very seriously GW will do a full line of oils, but I could see them doing a line of oil washes.

And yeah, I'm in the Linseed Brotherhood and have gone full oils for the last like 6 months. All my acrylics are moving to the top shelf out of reach, since I never use them anymore. My airbrush still gets a workout for priming, but I'm not even doing initial work with that as much right now.

I like the idea of contrast metallics or colored metallics. I’ve been a huge fan of contrast (probably my favorite paint product of the last five years), because it both allows newer or time crunched painters to get models done in a relatively quick time and because it allows for some pretty cool techniques for more experienced painters.

Really interested to see what the new product is.

Right, I swear if they change standard names again, or discontinue certain colors, I will spend a lot of money switching to Vallejo and Scale 75 permanently.

Colorshift seems to be the guess going around elsewhere, at least.

The following image is what set off that speculation.

Hmm, will be interested to see if it's genuinely something new or just a GW branding on stuff we can already buy. I'm guessing the latter, but always interested to see what new stuff might come out.

Green-to-gold is a normal colorshift option, e.g. turbodork radium.



So I can see why people are thinking it's not a light reflection but a hint. Would fit too, given people go elsewhere to get them that GW would want in. You *can* apply them by brush, but you usually get much better results with an airbrush.

It's a light reflection. You can see the same light on the rope to the left of the frame.

the current GW line is already there for a very long time now, so I expect that something like a new base line
new names for old colours, new colours with old names, maybe smaller bottlers (there are some nice 5ml Droppers around)

The light source in the background of that scene is green though, the non-metallic red rope also has a green highlight coming from that side.

If I were going to argue for colour shift, the Titan's crotch plate looks like maaaybe it has a top to bottom colour shift, but at first glance I just thought it was weathering.

I am kicking myself for not thinking of smaller containers. That’s so obvious; it’s like the butler did it.
Well done.

Colorshift makes no sense to me, what are you going to paint with them? GW actually has hard set lore colour schemes for their stuff, they're not a generic paint manufacturer that can produce anything and everything, they make paint for the factions they make.

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


Agree completely - I would be very, very surprised if it was Oils for the aforementioned reasons. Although advanced-level painters use them to good effect it would not make painting more accessible and certainly not faster, which is GWs MO.

Dropper bottles sounds most likely although if they do rename the painfs again I will be honest that is the last time I buy a GW paint lol!

Various insect carapaces, homebrew Space Marine Chapters or Eldar Craftworlds, oil spills - there's a few ideas, just off the top of my head.

They might also then need to introduce some gloss primers, as I seem to recall colourshifting paints work best over a gloss base.

My guess is a (badly needed) update to the Colour app.

But, the wishlist I would like is dropper bottles, new colour spray primers and as an outside gamble, the return of some very specific brushes, such as a stippling brush, rediculously sized brushes for terrain etc.

The way GW pitched it this is clearly something newly mixed or physical. I don't think they'd have hyped up as they've done if all they were doing is updating the painting app. Not saying that an update to it isn't coming, but that it would be a very strange way to market it.

Even dropper bottles don't really fit the style of marketing they've gone for. They've very clearly teased that there's a NEW paint thing coming. What that is could be anything from just new colours; to new types of paint.


Dropper bottles and app updates could be rolled into it, but I'd be very surprised if we don't see new paints of some kind.

Probably different coloured neons would be my guess.

Maybe some other new technicals?

As others have said, oils is unlikely.

I don't see the point of dropper models. Half of my paints are in droppers and it irks me.

They won't revamp the whole range again (unless they somehow lose access to the current manufacturing pipeline). 7 or so years worth of YouTube painting tutorials they've put together would be outdated overnight.

It's not going to be anything as big as Contrast or they would be hyping it a lot more and lot further in advance also.

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.



Which is just weird since on their how to paint ultramarines videos they use macragge - calgar - fenrisian grey

arguably contrast over silver basecoat is exactly this...would introducing coloured metallics be worthwhile?
