Paint the whole world. Games Workshop

The recent announcement of the incoming Contrast Paint System from Games Workshop has caused a lot of controversy and conversation since the announcement was made.

Some gamers and painters are stating that the new paints that shade and highlight at same time is nothing short of a gimmick and just another way for the “Evil Empire” to part you from your money, others jump to the defence of the company claiming that it is a revolutionary idea that will benefit those who use it!

Regardless of where you sit or stand on the Contrast paint agenda, it looks likely that they are here to stay.

To which end Games Workshop have launched a brand new website dedicated to its paint ranges and much more.

The new Contrast Paint System will be launched in June and will feature 34 paints, two spray primers and a Contrast Meduim for thinning your paints if needed, one coat does all.

I will take a look at the new paints just as soon as possible and will put them through their paces, and I am really keen to see how well the Apocaphry l  White Contrast Paint works out on Stormtroopers from Star Wars Legion
