I have heard that Games workshop or Forgeworld will be bringing out a range of weathering pigments in the near future.
Rumor has it that forgeworld wish to produce further modelling and painting masterclass books like the one released last year and of course this would allow them not to have to reccomend other company's products.

hm, this is interesting, especially given that latest paint developments from GW (Foundation and washes) are quite cool.
Sounds interesting, I wonder if they can undercut MIGs range @£3 a tub?
I also wonder if this means they will release a range of oil paints and the required thinners as well.
To be honest, this scene is something AFV modellers have been using for years, Im suprised GW didnt get involved earlier.
Pardon my ignorance, but what exactly are weathering pigments, and how do they differ from ordinary paints?
HERE is a link to MIG Pigments mini datasheet.
Ive produced a quick tutorial on this webiste in the tutorials section showing a method on rust.
It does make sense for GW to move in this direction as other companies are making money from people painting their models at the moment. It's also a good move as they take up relatively small amounts of shelfspace while still fetching a good pricetag per unit.
As for how good they are and how many people use them... well, time will tell. I might give them a go if I can get them from my local GW store.
I'd suspect that they'd come through FW. GW paints have moved towards army production rather than masterful painting. I'm looking at foundation paints and the new washes when i say this- clearly they're designed for easy use and bulk painting. They could just as easily added handy painting 'tools' like glaze mediums and drying retardants but chose not to.
If FW are writing the books on advanced modelling then expect FW to stock the products for advanced modelling.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Tamiya has something similar, from snow, mud to burnt colour (like blue, orange).
I have used them and it works great.
This does sound in line with what GW are doing. The amount of painting advancing atm they are doing is quite large. Paints (as said) but also the new brushes coming out. And with the new (well at the time) hobby tools that came out, it does look like GW are push the hobby side and trying to make money along the way. So im hopeful!
