Forgeworld Airbrush Paint Range- Pics from Warhammer World


Forgeworld is breaking into the airbrush paint market later this month, and we have images of the range of colors that will be available. There are some interesting paints here, like the "clear".


This is a quick follow up of yesterday's article on the new paints.

Check out this poster that was available during the Warhammer World Grand Opening. The word is that these will be available later this month.

    1. In fairness, dropper bottles are good.

    2. I have to say id prefer droppers. but then im a messy sod..

      But nice quick legion armies? Hell yes!

    3. For some maybe but I've always used syringes for meting out paint for mixing (as previously stated in the other post lol) so it makes no difference to me. I would've thought that people who frequently thin and/or mix paint would use something that's more accurate?

    4. I can vouch for Al being a messy sod. lol

    5. People are getting really bent out of shape over that. It's not *that* big a deal…

    6. I think the best thing about these new paints is they should LAST. Retro pots FTW!

    7. I mix with droppers (paint and thinner) in the cup: reproducible ratios, clean and no syringe to was out.

      Individual preferences are not that big a deal as you say. However, it's a fairly niche market so if some of that market are dissuaded from the outset by inconvenient presentation, especially if rivals are more convenient and cheaper, that may matter to profit.

      Plus it's a slow news day and I have nothing more exiting to do than comment here :)

    8. Just be thankful they aren't the paint-dries-out-within-a-month style pots we get from Citadel.

      Personally though... it's unlikely I'll pick up any of these, given the limited colour range, (un)availability, and the rumoured £3.75 price point.

    9. The real question is are they as good as vellejo's model and game air range, or my new favorites scale 75

      There transparent paints look good, as they should be a lot easier to get in the UK than minitairs ghost tints, but i will wait till i see some reviews before i commit more cash to paints

      "I think the best thing about these new paints is they should LAST. Retro pots FTW!"

      Agreed. I just counted and of my 90+ paints, 32 are the old skool white pop caps like these new FW ones. All of them still work perfectly after ~20 years. That seal is great on those caps, so long as you clean out the built up paint gunk which is pretty easy with a tooth pick and paper towel. Hell, a number of them were still sealed nicely just from the paint gunk build up, but obviously not ideal ;)

    11. I buy airbrush paints specifically so that I do not have to thin them. While there are a couple colors, plus the metallics, that I plan to at least research reviews of, I have not a lot of interest in needing to add dealing with droppers in order to paint.

      They may be great paints, but lack of convenience will keep them off my must-buy list.

  2. But we saw this on the link that was shared five days ago

  3. Those bottles would be great for GW paints...

    1. Depends if they gunk up and won't close.

      Then there's just more paint to dry. Only time will tell.... literally...

      Delete
    2. Or they could go the route of Tamiya paint pots: gunk up and won't open.

      Delete
  4. i'm more interested in the quality and finish... many of the best painters around (i.e. crystal brush winners) use brands like Scale75 almost exclusively. I've moved on from GW paint, i still have some for very specific uses (some of the washes and texture/technical paint) but i've found that it's not very good in comparison to may other brands... go for them if you want, but personally there is much better paint out there

  5. Clear paints are probably a ripoff of the Minitair Ghost Tints paints. Either way, these aren't worth the price when the competition gives you the same or more for less.

  6. Of paints available in Canada, gw is best imo

    1. I commonly use GW paints, but I find that Vallejo is of equivalent quality in most cases. (Also, cheaper, and comes in a dropper bottle, and has a huge colour selection.)

      Delete
    2. Ummmm, Vallejo is available in Canada (as are almost all other brands) and is FAARRRR superior to GW. I think you need to get out more if you think they are the best.

    3. Vallejo isnt readily available in my area

  7. I may give a pot of that Grey Knights a whirl. Metallics are usually a good test of an airbrush paint.

    1. 100% Airbrushing the GW Boltgun metal actually works better than most of the airbrush specific metallics I've tried. If they've got a good airbrush ready metallic, I'll buy it, I'm not brand loyal, it's all about the results.

    3. The Vallejo Air metallics are excellent in my experience, not just for airbrushing, but for fine-line metallic detail work, as they flow so nicely and the pigments are tiny.

    4. I've found Army Painter Gunmetal to be the best of the gunmetal paints. The Vallejo one uses too much blue and the flakes are way too big. GW's Leadbelcher/Boltgun metal as well as Army Painter Gunmetal have the finest, smallest flakes.

      Doing a mix of isopropyl alcohol 70% water 30%. 1 part of that mix and 1 part Army Painter gunmetal paint in an airbrush creates the most amazing sheen.

  8. I've tried Citadel, Army Painter, Vallejo, Minitaire, Createx and Aerocolor series for painting minis and I have to say that Aerocolor Pro is best for airbrushing and Citadel works best for painting with normal brushes.

    Aerocolor Pro comes in a square glass bottles and they have pipette build into the cap which helps color medium to steady when shaking and also makes adding up paint very easy and mess free.

    Their viscosity is perfect as you can just drop some paint to your airbrush directly from the bottle when you do small touch ups but you can still use thinner or retarder when doing something that requires more time and paint.

    They have also nice effect paints including plenty of pearlescents and candy paints with which you can do some neat tricks.

    I am for example building a Necron army which has a base of black pearlescent with pure pearl with silver as main colour and with blue transparent pearlescent on top of it.

    That creates an unique painting scheme which you can't capture well with camera since the armour of the Necrons varies in colour depending from which angle you look at it but has mostly blue tint on it when in shadow.

  12. I wonder if they will be doing a painting guide to accompany these paints.
