Citadel Paint Release

       Yes, I know, I was supposed to post Battle Company photos. Haven't finished them yet. Been working on to many projects at once. Seems like every gamer has got that problem. I'll try to finish them so I can show you guys the team. In the meantime I thought I'd talk about the new paints.

    Recently, Citadel replaced all their old 73 colors with 145 new paints. My first impression was, "What the heck! Just repackaging and renaming all the old paints just as an excuse to up the price on us more!" Thankfully, The price is the same and there is some goodness to the new system. You can watch the video on the GW site.

The New Paint Range
    After reading the new paint range article on the GW site I am actually rather pleased with the transition. They released a new How to Paint Citadel Miniatures Book and even released a conversion chart from old to new paints. No, none of the paints are the same color. They are all new formulas.

    Let me know what you guys think. You should read the GW article before you judge this one because this one looks like a point for GW.
