GW Paints: Are They Any Good?

First, They don't actually get released on the 24th.  Let's just get that out of the way.  They are released in two weeks,  April 7th. 

Now on to the paints...I got to mess with them for about 20 minutes.  I can say that they really are nice.  The base is the new foundation.  They expanded the color range and they seem to work very well.  The white works but not on one pass on black.

Glazes are just that.  GW glazes are just like normal glazes (just more expensive).  I have been too lazy to make my own. If you are like me, these will be perfect.

Shades are the new washes only with a better consistency.  Seem to work just as well.

Layers are what you put over the base.  Works well and the colors have expanded.  Worked just fine.

Dry is their dry brush paint.  It worked well.  It is a think paint that is dry.  Handles like normal paint only designed for dry brushing.

Texture paint is money.  It worked great and was better than I thought it would be.  You can use it on a base and bam your done.  The one this is I would use it in addition to something else.  I plan on using them with my cork bases instead of sand. 

They also have Technical which has Liquid Green Stuff, 'ard Coat, a mixing medium and a primer.  Meh....

All in all, I have to say I was surprised and ordered a bunch of colors I needed and a few other things to try it out more.
