My board approved impressions. 

 

This is a painting handle.

I like the design and would definitely get one, but I just bought a couple of the old design.

However, if the Cameron Peak fire burns my parent's house down along with all my belongings... I'll buy a few.

The base of the new one looks separate which suggests it'll be a metal weight. Which is a good thing.

Where does it look separate? Looks like a single whole piece to me.

It would be nice if it was weighted, just don't know if anything on it makes me think it is.

The very base looks like a flat disc attached of a different material. My guess is it's a metal base to add weight and stability.

Oh yeah! My brain was saying "mirror face" because of those weird art swirls they put on there, looked like a reflection descending down, but I can see what you mean.

Is it going to be the same price? Will be annoying if the new sleeker, less material-y handle costs more.

 

Given that the recent Horus Heresy black book was considerably smaller in page count than previous books but still more expensive, I wouldn't be surprised if the new handle was priced above the old one xD.

Why invest time and money in a new handle... when other things could have been done?!?...
I hope it’s weighted and I hope it’s not more expensive... gah ...who am I kidding... it’ll fall over easier and cost more laugh.png

I drink a fair bit of wine and the best thing about wine is that each bottle comes with a painting/modelling handle in the spout.

Wait.
That’s not the best thing.

No this will be the same price, GW love to give us value for money..

If people don't find either design wide enough (new or old), you could always find threaded bar the right size to thread into the top model holder bit and make your own handle?

Fair point, but at the same time people could just opt to buy a handle from another brand that fits their hand better to begin with and not have to worry about faffing around with making their own handle to “fix” the GW handle

'Fix' you say? 

 

We would never have to tinker with a GW product to make it suitable. To quote the Todd Howard/Bethesda song... It just works...

If I didnt already have one from someone else, I wouldn't mind a GW wet palette.

It would be a great money spinner for them at Christmas

I tried all that, but the one I bought did it far better.

But you could run the same argument with corks and old paint pots for painting handles, and they sold like hot cakes.

 

I just don't get why GW haven't done it yet, it seems like a no-brainer

What kind of wet palette are you using at the moment? The missus could use one and I dont mind paying for hers, I think she would go full Angron if I got her a load of random stuff from poundland and told her to make one. :lol:

The Sta-Wet handy palette I think it's called. Although, I'd didn't like the paper as much as the non waxy baking parchment I already had, but the proportions of the palette, and the quality of the sponge are far superior to my home made versions.

I drink a fair bit of wine and the best thing about wine is that each bottle comes with a painting/modelling handle in the spout.

Wait.
That’s not the best thing.


Painting handles are much more comfy to hold...

New handle is £7

I'm hoping the base is weighted, like Aramis K said, because I don't really understand it otherwise - why stick something on the bottom that narrows down again, instead of just keeping it the same width as the bottom of the handle? It seems like the design with the sloped sides makes it more likely to fall over.

That's one of my complaints with the current handle - if I accidentally overbalance it somewhere on top (easy to do with the leaning models and hanging pelts on SW stuff) and don't plunk it down just right upright, the sloping parts of the base cause it to tip.

Only a £1 increase which isn't too bad

 

Along with others, I also hope it's weighted. Quite fond of my existing ones so not sure if I'll pick any of these up
