Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

GW’s contrasting previews

It’s been another week-end of exciting Games Workshop previews (as long as you’re the sort of person who gets excited by such things). I know I am!

First up is the third gang for Warcry. This gang hails from the realm of life:

It takes me a while to spot a pattern so it looks like this game will have 8 gangs, one for each realm.

The more interesting preview to me is their new hobby product line, the contrast paints.

The contrast paint line comes with its own undercoat and is designed to be a paint and go type of system, where one generous coat is enough to automatically colour, shade, and highlight your tabletop model.

My army painting days are basically over, but these paints make me look around for collections of 80-200 models which need matching paint jobs. Certainly this looks like a great way of getting that good idea for a new army from a few years ago out of the cupboard and onto the table.

For those at Warhammer Fest they used each pot in the launch range to paint a space marine making it easy to see how each colour turns out:

There have been plenty more previews from this week-end’s Warhammer Fest so I’d recommend checking out the full article.

    The paints have grabbed my interest too. It looks like a good range of colours, which I agree would be great for groups of models. Price will determine whether I actually end up getting any.

      Agreed, I’m not sure if they are for me, but I’m impressed that they chose to launch with such a diverse range, not just ultramarines and blood angels!
