Ok, I did a quick search and saw nothing, so I'm hoping I'm the first to bring this up. Sorry if I'm not.
Just wondering if anyone's tried the new Citadel Washes yet (I think they're out now). Are they as good as advertised? Do they work as well as the foundation paints do? What do you use them for? Do you use them in an airbrush the way they are shown in WD?
I believe that they are out on Saturday (the 7th).
I've tried them, and they seem to work great for 'quick and simple' painting, army and/or batch painting.
They really are wonderfully simple to use, just splosh it on all over (as my dad says, for some reason, when referring to almost anything), and you get really nice results.
However, they just aren't as versatile as mixing my own with mediums etc, so they won't be replacing my beloved Glaze Medium at home.
I will likely be using them in a similar manner to the way I use Foundations at the moment. I have a few that I require for 'set schemes', and a white and a red (which are god-sends for coverage).
For the washes, I suspect I may well use the black one with regularity, as well as the sepia (for simple and easy gold washes), but I will probably not be buying many more unless I decide on a specific army scheme that requires it.

I agree with everything Minus-t stated. I received an advance copy from my local game store and for standard troop batch painting they are great but for any show models they just dont get the job done.
yeah ive only used them once as a test scheme for my imperial fists and combined with foundation paints i think it turned out pretty good.

Witch Hunters - 1000
Necrons - 750
I played with them a little bit when we received the advanced copy. The Ogryn Flesh one was nice when used in conjunction with the fleshy colored foundation. Gives people a nice natural tan feel. I put a little green on some Blood Bowl orcs and it looked pretty good. So far I'm a fan, but I'll probably only pick up the ones I actually plan to use instead of the box set.
Not bad but it's a bit late. I've already developed a grab bag of recipies featuring Future Floor Polish.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
The brown and green ones are excellent Even for display painting I would say, even though i'm hardly a pro, i'd imagine it'd be a good addition to the materials already available.
Tried them all out yesterday and they are great. The purple and blue washes are really good for shading faces and the red and mud coloures are great for creating rusty effects on metals. I love em'.:happy:
CHK CHK BOOM!
I tried using some the other day - not so bad. I'm not a fan of the their apparent surface tension, however - it seems harder to do a proper wash into fine cracks and lines. I might try really watering it down, but I'm not sure thats going to help much - the miniscus is too large. Ah well, a bit of experimenting looms ahead!
All in all though, I am happy with them - another tool for the hobby!

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
Ive used them on a few things now, good for quick light shading or tinting effects. Definatly much easier to use then the washes, so good for people who arent pro painters, and for kids who might not know to water down their washes.
