Seems like it's all about the new paints

Or at least that's what I want to think! Changes to the rules (knowing GW as we know) are always going to be to something worse than what we have now.

There's some talk in Dakka Dakka about the new paints. Apparently we know the list of paints and their names, and also, they are going to be divided in categories, which will be Bases, Layer, Shades, Dry, Glaze, Texture and Technical. I still need to figure out why the fancy categories. All this set composed of a list of 144 paints. Here is the list of the new colours we will find once the new set is released (presumably):

Oh no! They can't just change the names like that; I can't live without Goblin Green :(

As you say, a big part of my early painting days (not childhood sadly!)will be forever missing.

Bah GW!

Also if i'm just painting for two years it's a pity they give all their colours oher names...
I think i'll have do buy every colour I do not have at the moment...

Talk is the names change the colours dont...... ?

I'll have to link to this post, thanks volomir.

Unknown said...

I am gonna get rich by starting a business that prints labels with the old names for the new colors ;)

Heh, heh... I actually dont mind all of that, but, learning 144 new names of colors will suck for a year or two...

This is heresy worse than Horus! Keep that colours as they are or my Blood Angels will have no color and i'll take the field with un-painted models!

I said goodbye at Salamander Black in the far 1992 and now i must say goodbye at chaos black...this is unfair
