New teaser up on Warhammer Community. Pretty vague. Apparently as groundbreaking as Contrast paints were back then.

What could it be?

But it says "Warhammer is paint" at the end, not Warhammer "is painted" or "comes painted" or something along the lines...

Paints for quick weathering effects would be useful.

Yea not expecting prepainted. Dropper bottles i also doubt but running out of ideas. Any other paint techniques gw might imitate like contrast was?

Heh. That's why i'm thinking dropper bottles - showered in drops of paint...

Hopefully it's something more useful than the spray stick.

Preferably it's an addition to what's already there. I don't even care if it's useful or not as long as they're not throwing out the entire range again.

I'd take that over dropper bottles.

Just thinking through the trends of the last year and how GW might attempt to productize them:

Oil paints – The oil wash technique has really taken off among pro painters in the last year or so. Kind of doubt this, it's a messy process involving flammable liquids.

Color shift – My LGS has taken in a few ranges of color shift paint – Turbodork

Mini sprays – Tamiya-sized small cans with more colors?

Airbrush – The one bit of content in the teaser is "prepare your brushes" so probably not.

Reaper-style Triads – this strikes me as most likely. "Paint makes Warhammer" strikes me as a line targeting people playing with piles of gray plastic, not those looking to hone a Golden Demon entry. My guess is that we'll see paints sold in three-packs, perhaps with the long-awaited shift to droppers. It would be a good compliment to the contrast line and give people a bit more of a sense for which colors they need. E.g. Trying to suss out the different greens needed for a Salamanders, Death Guard, Ork, or Dark Angels scheme isn't the easiest thing for a noob.

Colour shifts seems the most obvious to me.

I doubt it'll be oils/enamels because of the substances.

Well at least they dont dry inside of unopened pots.

My point was both have their inherent disadvantages, but certain subsets of this community seem to think dropper bottles are like the second coming.

A set of brushes loaded with different paints fired from a pump action revolver shotgun very much sounds like GW's take on an airbrush, so I wouldn't rule it out.

Isn't a panacea supposed to overflow with nature's bounty? Seems to me like an exploding dropper bottle should very much be likened to a panacea.

Gundam style paint markers? Doesn't really fit with the "prepare your brushes" tag line though.

There was talk, yes, but I don't believe that rumor came attached to a reliable source. And since GW's teaser doesn't actually tell us anything, it's still up in the air if that rumor is on the money or just wishlisting.

Contrast 2: The Contrastening.

New updated formula, doesn't go patchy on flat surfaces, still flows nicely into recesses.

Sadly, this new formula makes an exact duplication of existing colours impossible, so best you buy all new paints and another batch of models so they all match.

We find comfort among those who agree with us - growth among those who don't. - Frank Howard Clark

The wise man doubts often, and changes his mind; the fool is obstinate, and doubts not; he knows all things but his own ignorance.

I decant most of my GW paints to droppers, and have plenty of AP, vallejo and scale 75 in droppers. I can't remember the last time I had a clog - that wasn't me being an idiot and forgetting scale 75 need the tip piercing before use... It saves a lot of paint, is far more suitable for use with a palette - which GW shows using in every single paint guide to thin the paint - and don't end up with great globs of dry paint round the rim blocking it closing and causing it dry up in the pot, AND the best bit - I don't need a bloody pot holder to stop the thing tipping all over my desk when my cat decides to come explore my desk, again. Citadel shades going everywhere is a far worse problem than clogging could ever be.

Pretty sure that is a cat related problem, not a pot related one.

I'm guessing either some improved contrast 2.0 that isn't splotchy on smooth surfaces, maybe even METALLIC contrast paints.

That or some kind of new markers or sprays.

Really don't think people should be taking "prepare your brushes" literally.

Except gw is pretty honest on that kind of hints. They certainly won't be doing prepainted models or airbrush kits with that.

The video focused on characters with coloured metallic surfaces as the common theme thing them all together.

Some form of metallics is my best guess.

Paint pens could be interesting, if not for the prepare your brushes teaser line. Something to do details with really easily.

3d printed minis that come basecoated would be the off the wall suggestion.
