inks dry with a slight gloss finish that's intensified the more you put on, also you can re-wet inks allowing interesting blending effects using isopropanol and other inks (great for gore or rotten nurgley things). It's just one of those frustrating circumstances that the majority of people used inks like a wash so GW just assumed swopping them over wouldn't be an issue, for the most part it's not but because the two things are not identical some effects are now much more difficult to achieve without using gloss mediums and drying retardent (which alters your pigments opacity and makes the wash flow too slowly).
Still as said it's not like the old inks aren't obtainable, they are almost exactly the same and you get more of it for less money because it's not got all the silly branding on it.
As for the new paints I like the idea of a Triad system it seems to work well for other brands.
Come see my Necrons, Space Marines, Dwarfs, Orks, Goblins and anything else I feel like painting at my blog: http://modelminiaturepainting.blogspot.com/
The inks had the outstanding properties of translucent color saturation that cannot be matched with the washes. Diluting the paint can get a similar color and that is what I have done - a mix of available paint, ink and wash to get a dead ringer for my beloved Chestnut Ink. However, it is still not the same - oh well - times and products change. I do really like the washes, though. They are great.
Which armies do I have? Holy Cow - I've got three boys, so what armies do I NOT have??
Win/Loss Ratio? - I usually let my boys win, so frankly, it stinks...
It's that slightly glossy finish that I really like about the inks. I still have a few original inks, never topped up or altered. I have that chestnut brown, as well as Orange, blue, sky blue, a darker brown and black.
Then I also have this other strange one. It is a citadel pot, one of the smooth sided tall round ones with a black soft plastic lid. The label says it is "Rust Brown". It goes on like an ink, with its coverage, but dries quite translucent, with an added metallic sheen you can't see until it dries.
I'm pretty sure I have about 5 different generations of paint pots, a lot with the original paint still in them.
May the Dragon of Unhappiness never fly up your bottom.

Nice find there Kuffy.
Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
what i would like to know is what they're getting rid of, or what "comparable" colors are replacing others if anyone has that info.
I don't think they are getting "rid" of any colours, if anything it looks like they are essentially tripling their paint types! Thing is i will have no clue what paints to choose from when my paints run out!
All i hope is that yellow, white and all other bright colours become much easier to use!
AND BRING BACK COLOUR SPRAY PAINTS! >.<
