    GW Foundation Paint Set

    http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/8...ndationik6.jpg


    Its pretty much just paint with a much higher pigment to binder level then normal.

    What do you think? Good idea? Has anyone tried them? I wonder if we can expect something like £3 a pot or will they be normal GW paint prices.

    you sure it isnt just new pots and different colour names just to get money?

    Since most hardened painters dilute anyway, these represent a reasonable idea, but I bet they contain 1.5 times as much pigment for 2x the price

    Knowing GW, that's a possibility. But I have heard of these before, they're designed to be used more as the basecoat; like over black or to get a nice solid colour without having to do umpteen layers before even getting onto the painting.

    Be worth a look I think.

    Another product to get $$ from our pockets into their cash boxes
    Imho unnecesary - you can get a good effect applying 2 layers of basecoat with regular paints

    Well if the price is not so high then it might be some thing to use... Still I don’t really need one more set of paint with the same colors, we already have the normal GW and Vallejo game color. If there is something more I need it is different shades, but my local GW store will son start selling Vallejo model colors so problem solved...

    But as I sad if the price is good and they do REALLY cover over black then it might be a good idea, especially for the speed painters...

    One thing pointed out elsewhere, look at the names. All GW copywrite names. I think this is to stop other companies such as Vajello or Coat d' Arms mimicing them too closely.

    Yes that might be thro, still it can be a bit annoying if they have colors with different names that have the same shade.

    Anyway dose anyone know if GW are making there own paint? I heard a rumor that GW and Vallejo paint was made at the same place. But it might be that, just a rumor...
    Keep the paint diluted and thin :)
