Games Workshop Contrast Paint range presentation
Hello everyone !!
At last we have some new informations on the new contrast line :
To use contrast paint, Priming must be made with the one of the two color : Grey seer and Wraith bone. Grey Seer gives colder, darker tones while Wraithbone provides a warmer, more organic feel. From what i heard these new spray are of incredible quality and should become the new light prime color
The 2 contrast paint primer also come in base color, but i am not sure the can be used to prime and or use contrast on it. Because from what i understand to use contrast paint you need to use a contrast paint primer in can to get a super smooth finish for flowing purpose.
Can i mix both of them ? can i spray them ? can i zenithal with the Wraithbone over the Grey seer ? So many questions
At launch there will be 34 colors with a large variation of color available from the start.
Contrast red and yellow
contrast paint Skin Tones
At least : Fyreslayer Flesh, Guilliman Flesh and Darkoath Flesh,Plaguebearer Flesh, Ork Flesh
Of course that Orc flesh is going to be super useful !!!
Bone, Metal and More!
NMM copper and steel !!! Wow that copper is super interesting is it 2 colors ? or one ? The bones color look cool too.
The Steel nmm is a bit bland but with some white lining that should do the tricks. It's hard to judge because on the necron image i don't know what they did, is it one thicc coat of the Basilicanum Grey ? or multiple light pass ? is the gun and the body the same gray but onto different primer ?
To be honest a magic recipe for painting NMM make me a bit jealous. But i am sure that i can use contrast pain to increase my painting speed while maintaining good* quality.
*good = good enough for me ^^
I love to shade white with blue so i am all in on this one !! The effect is interesting on the Tau Firewarrior but i am impressed by the cleanness of the dark lining on the legs. If you can get this result with one coat without much cleaning it's damn good.
Specific medium for Contrast paints. I really hope that reducing the number of pigments by mixing medium keep the Contrast paint magic touch. Because if you can dose the color intensity while keeping the magic touch (i have no better word) it's complete sorcery.
I am not a big fan of this effect but it's neat idea if you want do shinny armor !
Is contrast paint good ? i don't know yet, the effect are cool for a supposedly once thicc coat. But it's hard to judge on these pics because we don't know the amount of time or paint coats they used.
Anyway i am super hyped but the idea and can't wait to try them !!

Warhammer Fest : Live test of the Contrast paint line
Hello everyone !!!
2ps Podcast is present at Warhammer fest and had the occasion to try and film using the Games Workshop : Contrast paint.
The model painted is one of the new Nurgle poxwalker for Warhammer 40000). It look a lot like wash painting but with more definition and cleaner.
Honnestly the result is quite ok for the time spent. I wonder if i can mix the technique with pre-lighting with an Air Brush. I could finish a lot of my miniatures with this ^^

Anyway that look Promising, can't wait to try this new paint range by Games Workshop, still no info on the price (starting to be scared)
If you were under a rock yesterday and missed all the Warhammer Fest hype :
Contrast is a new type of paint designed made by Games Workshop to make awesome results accessible to anyone, fast. With Contrast, you’ll have everything you get from a Base and Shade, but in a single application and a single coat.
In a Nutshell Games Workshop allow you to paint one thick coat and finish your Age of Sigmar army (or Warhammer 40 000) and in few days only.
