Just got the news from my FLGS. Make your orders because these items in their current form are "while stocks last".

He knows for sure that the spray cans are gone, the Edge paint will be repackaged as layer paint and Textures will have new labels. Some of the other products might get new bottles (probably size-wise, I guess Glazes and Air are a good candidate).

He should know more by Wednesday, I'll try to update this thread then. The items affected by this are:
  • Glaze paints
  • Caliban Spray, Stormvermin Fur, The Fang & Averland Sunset spray cans
  • Textures all in 24 ml size
  • Textures 12 ml - Lustrian Undergrowth, Mourn Mountain Snow, Blackfire  Earth
  • Air paint as well as the thinner
  • Lahmian Medium & Ardcoat
  • Edge 
  • And lastly Ceramite White (we won't miss that one!)

Crap, I'm going to have to stock up on Lahmian medium, as expensive as it is. I just can't find another medium that works like it and it's become a staple of some of my wash mixes.

It's possible that it will get rebottled into 24 ml for example. 

I'll get back to you guys once I know more :)

Mmm, might have to go to the GW store to pick up an Averland Sunset spray, it is quite useful for Imperial Fists and although I will probably give a try to the new contrast paints, it is always a good idea to have a backup if I'm not convinced by them.
It also makes kinda sense that they would discontinue the coloured sprays in favour of the new primers + contrast layer, although it would probably be wiser to keep all options for the different painting styles. Maybe they will adapt the new spray formula to more colours?

At any rate, thank you Reclusiarch Krieg for the heads up!

Yeah y'know what, I was just reading one of the Warcom articles about the contrast paints and they were talking about how much people love Lahmian, so it probably is a rebottle. It would be a big snub to go on about how much people love it and then just pull it shortly after haha.

If you're after a yellow army (Imperial Fist style), white and either twice Cassandora Yellow or one of the new yellow Contrast Paints will give you much better results than Averland Spray ever can (not to mention it was a trap because the spray color didn't match the paint color).

I only needed it as a good basecoat for a complete layer of Yriel Yellow. I can achieve the same by painting from the pot, but the spray was quicker. I'll see if I can get a couple of cans this week, otherwise it could be a real pain.

My main problem is i cant uniformly basecoat for the life of me

 

I just managed to find a way with the spray,as unoptimal as that was.With that gone,i'm dead in the water

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.

Urg. Averland is the basis of my AT Fire Wasps carapaces. I just use it as sprayed. I guess future titans aren’t going to match then.

Glazes I can see being retired, or just rebottled in 24ml. Maybe the air paints are switching to droppers? Hah, of course not, that'd be sane. I don't use them that much, but it is handy sometimes to have a colour match to an existing layer colour. And a 50/50 mix of Kantor and Abaddon worked nicely as a base for black armour.

 

Relabelling the edge paints as layers makes sense as the distinction always seemed pretty abitrary given the consistency, and I too suspect the mediums are just getting rebottled to 24ml. Doesn't affect me personally, I've switched to army painter wash mixing medium for thinning shades while keeping them wash like, and instar water+ for everything else with a hairy stick.

 

And don't knock ceramite white. Think about all the people that have been introduced to the wider, cheaper world of other paint makers in their search for a white that doesn't dry like flock wallpaper.

Ok. I’ve done lots of investigating and if you go to the new citadel color website and watch all the new tutorial most of this makes sense and are 90% repackaged.

The only one which seems to be disappearing are the glazes. If you watch the new glazing tutorial on citadel color you will see they are using a contrast paint + *contrast* medium to make a glaze and they explain that. So the glazes are probably gone.

The spray cans are probably being renamed or are disappearing because of the new spray colors we got in wraith bone and grey seer.

About medium and ardcoat. The mediums don’t seem to be going as in the new medium video they show *both* the old lahmium and the new contrast medium which is in the big bottle. If you watch the new varnish you can see we are getting a NEW varnish called Stormshield. They specify that ardcoat is glossy while stormshield is matte. These are in bigger bottles. Perfect.

Also on the “protecting your models” video they show 2 spray varnishes which as far as I know they only sell 1 at the moment. The new one being called “purity seal” and they say it’s gloss while the current munitorium varnish is a “near matte”.

The texture paints seems to be renamed technical instead but are not going anywhere. In the basing videos Duncan calls these paint like Stirland Mud “a technical paint that has texture in it”. And in the video when they put the banner at the top with the paint name being used in the video it says “Stirland Mud - Technical”. So I’m sure all of these are staying just being repackaged. Why though is the better question... They seem to just want fewer paint label categories to make things less confusing?

And all the edge is being relabeled to layer which makes sense.

'Ardcoat is definitely getting a big bottle - it is shown in a tutorial on the new Citadel paint website, alongside a new Matte paint-on varnish called Stormshield.

 

Edit: sorry, I see this was already mentioned in the previous post!

The new contrast paints are most of the way to a glaze already so that does kinda make sense and most uses are pretty sparing, though anyone reliant on a particular current shade for a scheme will probably find it annoying.

 

The texture paints being merged into the technical brand does make this Contrast poster make more sense now.

Worth mentioning that air paints and glazes are not mentioned once on their new paint site. Also glazing as a technique is, using highly thinned down contrast paint.. Take all that for advance what its worth.

Oh boy, glad to see the FW paints return. It does make my painful efforts to recreate the Sons of Horus colours pointless but I'd rather have them than whatever concoction I can brew. Maybe I'll return to Sons of Horus after all hmmmm.

 

Looks to be an expensive week for paints. :o

Thanks for all the info Krieg. Just to confirm: if you didn’t mention a spray at all, it’s staying right?

Because if Leadbelcher spray is gone too, I’m going to be inconsolable...
