I hope it is an airbrush to be honest, if only because then we'll see some airbrush tutorial videos on Warhammer TV.

 

 

Why would you need to wait for airbrush tutorials to show up there? There's thousands of them on youtube. Maybe even tens of thousands.

Hope is the first step to despair.

Maybe he likes the format of the WHTV videos?

I don't *think* I'll personally learn a lot from any WHTV airbrush videos, but I must admit I sometimes feel that digging trough youtube videos and sifting the gold from the trash can be a bit of a chore.

Exactly; the quality of tutorial videos on YouTube is really hit and miss, and WHTV has a consistent style which I happen to like, and is done by people whose voices don't annoy me (which is a big deal for me personally).

This is a big deal, and anyone who tries to negate this point or devalue it really is lacking in foresight. Production quality, coupled with the content creators cadence, accent, and a good resonance are all very important.

 

And to avoid driving us off topic:

I thought the reveal was at Warhamer Fest, which is next weekend. Or did I misunderstand and that's just when people will see it in person?

Oh, maybe I misread - I thought WH Fest was this weekend for some reason. Well, hey, maybe we’ll get some leaks next week then. :lol:

Yep, for some reason when they said “Warhammer Preview this weekend” I thought that was the Warhammer Fest thing. Mea culpa.

I am really hoping that it is something like a line of markers in their color range, though with a fairly tiny tip size, good for edge highlighting. I had picked up a 1mm molotow refillable acrylic ink marker with the hopes of using it for recess shading and highlighting, but even at 1mm, the tip is pretty chunky for a lot of the stuff i want to use it for.


Good call. Micron makes .5mm and perhaps smaller. I used one when blacklining Rubrics.

I feel like the announcement is going to be a total swerve that has nothing to do with any of what's been suggested.

 

Like they're going to double-down on the colored plastics that they've been using in the boxed sets recently, so every model will now come pre-colored in a :cussty, muted version of their dominant sub-faction's scheme.

I was super sad when they stopped selling the FW version.
It was annoying seeing painting articles in white dwarf showing them using it, and then realizing they stopped using it. I’m like why did you kee that in the article????? Lqtm.

Geez, I really hope not. The model in the Matrix spoof definitely had more than one color.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

It was described as you paint a section of Armour, apparently it dries and shades the recesses, whilst the raised section dry lighter. 

 

This sounds odd and strange to me, is that even possible to do with paint?

We are going to find out I guess. That sounds weird.
