PostSubject: New Citadel Paints Have Arrived!    Wed Apr 11, 2012 4:26 pm

The full range of new Citadel paints have arrived and will be on their way to the following stores this week:
- Comics Mart.
- Game Forge.
- Hobby Forge.
- Toybox.
- Warp Space.

Each of these stores (except Game Forge) will also have a customized red painting station and a selection of 17 paints from the new range for you to try out! Just ask!

Finally, if you are looking for a conversion chart between the old Citadel Colors and new ones, it is available from this month's White Dwarf or online from GW.

Happy painting!

Hey Ashkay, you're right.

The paints are new formulations, now that the dust has settled, so tried and trusted formulas will need to be relooked.

But from what I'm seeing, it makes painting a simpler job.

I'm saying it's off so much. The chart does produce the SHADE of the color.
This is what i mean if you paint a model with the new paints,then a model with he old paints, they will look pretty similar, but the color transition is off Sad sadly

The new paints are now on display at Comics Mart. Sadly they don't have the red painting station for tests.

Bought some texture and dry paints. The bottle designs for both are different- lid raised slightly on the texture paint's bottle. Also, this is the first time I've ever found plastic flash on a paint bottle!

well, they are two different set of colours made by two different companies..
it'd be great if the colours are exact, but any dissimilarities are expected..
credits to GW though, trying to aid their customers with a colour conversion chart..

Exactly. If you're new to the game, no need to worry. Just learn the new style, it works just as well.

there's still one thing I don't get. Why would games workshop change the names of everything like chaos black blood red and other colors names have changed.

everything on the boxes of the minis have the old names. Looks like everybody gonna have to get or have a chart between the new paints and the old

From what I've read, it seems like GW changed the names both to indicate that the formulas are different, and to strengthen IP protection over them. (They hold the copyrights of names such as "Mourn Mountain" and "Genestealer" and not "Troll" or "Blood")

I'd say IP most importantly - when a name is as common as 'chaos' or 'blood', it becomes debatable on who owns the colour or name.

I think GW has had enough with independent developers ripping off their ideas and IPs.

Well that does make sense, but as i was saying before are they gonna change the names on the boxes so we can find the equivelant of the colors ?

Some clarifications...

1. The folks at Comics Mart do have the red painting station and 17 paint samples - do ask Jinn or Khai Hoong for it!

2. The new paints are commissioned from a new supplier and all new names have to be used as the old names are locked into an IP agreement with the old supplier, and hence can no longer legally be used.

3. The new paints were commissioned at a "higher grade" than the old ones - I have learned that there a grading of sorts for things like this!

4. Some of the new items we received today already come with the new color code, but some do not (old stock).

5. All 3 starter paint sets now come with the new paints and in some cases, new models.

6. And the new "How to paint guide with DVD" has also reached our shores!

Haha... must be that I asked the wrong guy at Comics Mart.

I think the new 40K starter set includes 5 new Dark Angels space marines with sculpted shoulderpads.

I bet there gonna make the dark angels a purely machined list. A sort of almost white scar codex if you will.

If my rapidly failing memory serves me, in 4th Ed (and assuming there has been no change in the codex for the 5th Ed) Dark Angels can field a pure mechanical list if they take the Master of the Ravenwing as a HQ.

This is to represent their 2nd Company that is composed of mechanised units.

So Dark Angels can field a SM combined arms list, a Deathwing √člite" Terminator list, and a mechanised list.

@Faizal Hi-5 to that man! We're loving the new paints so far, Ceramite White pwns Skull White. And White Scar is even brighter still. Only wish the dry compound shades could be done in normal layer paint formula.
