Ah great, so just before heat 3 😢 better get some extra stuff painted up for ironjawz in case of a huge points drop

If that happens I'll probably build something up because my son loves Ironjawz. But what's not to like, the Maw Crusha is a fantastic model.

At this point, I just wish I knew if I should buy and build Archaon or wait for some pirate skeletons 😓

Ok so the video is very much like watching actors talking about an upcoming film (seriously is this contrast paint the product or CONTRAST PAINT - THE MOVIE? ;) ). Overall though GW has reached out and got a nice range of quality painters in the video and I think that their enthusiasm and viewpoints certainly echo many we've been hearing already - that contrast paint is going to be a likely solid tool in the toolbox for many high quality painters; whilst for the more casual or battle-ready painter its the kind of paint that can let them get armies up to tabletop standard and down on the table playing with them painted.

Feeling like we are going to see the contrast pre-order weekend either next weekend or the one after. It is looming large at the moment....

Still no date for Contrast? I stopped all my projects waiting for this.

All we got told was "June" at WHFest.  Would agree with @CitizenX that pre-order this weekend or next is the most likely - there's a fairly hefty article in White Dwarf the next issue which is due middle of next month, so it wouldn't surprise me to see it out in time for that.  Could even be a 2 week pre-order window which they've done with the last couple of major releases.

There's also a new black crackle paint due out too as that's used in the article (and apparently some of the FW airbrush paints being brought back as part of the main Citadel range).

Considering how big they are making contrast paint and how it hits all their product markets I would wager that GW might even do a 2 week preorder for the launch rather than a 1 week.

Yeah, this video is pretty meh ... if they had all these experts painting with the contrast paints, let's see a video of them actually doing that and their results.

They'll probably post them once we get closer to the release

Edit: here's a tweet from Tyler Mengel

Wonder if enough people said they don't like rolling for turns in the Survey 😅

Some of us said we do like it, though. :-P

It won’t be this weekend, we’d know by now.

Yeah, this weekend is the halflings. I would not be surprised to see it announced on Sunday as the next pre-order, though

I'm definitely interested to see how these paints turn out and what their success rate is when in the hands of the public.  I'm very skeptical, but it would be wrong for me to say that I'm not interested to see how it turns out!

I have been making these type of paints for nearly a year now and have posted this recipe at various sites. Just mix the GW Air paint 1:1 with a wash, slap that on a light undercoat. I personally tend to do standard mechanicus > Heavy ulthuan dry brush and then apply the "glaze"-shade mix all in 1 mix on top of that. So feel free and go and experiment a bit before these paints are released :).

Abbadon black + nuln oil gives this result for example (WIP)

That looks really good, nice work!!  Hmm, may have to look into more paint experimentation and see what happens.

Thank you^^ and indeed! :) I think the hexwraith gloom paints and such recently are very close to contrast paints.
I personally am really looking forward to mixing in random paints into this contrast range to see if its possible to make the gradient even stronger. I also think the mechanics + drybrushing the contrast paint undercoat will likely make all the edges even more defined. Lets hope its out next week haha.

Haven’t been keeping up with rumors. Is it confirmed that there’s still ANOTHER destruction book coming in 2019? Or was Gloomspite the one?

There will be at least one more battletome for each alliance before the end of the year. That has been confirmed.

For Destruction, you can expect Orruk (possibly soup) and/or Ogors (almost certainly soup, maybe including Beastclaw Raiders).

Holding out for Ogors so, yay!

It's the mushrooms that give it the flavor.

Any word on how many releases will be “big” (ie. new models/faction expansion) and how many will be “small” (ie. book and endless spells)?

Official word, no. But we can make an educated guess.

Warcry is the next AoS-ish big release. After that, you can expect at best one big (like Gloomspike Gits, maybe a new army) and one medium (like Slaneesh) release until the end of the year. Every other release will be a battletome, 3 endless spells and a terrain piece, and maybe a new hero if they get a dual army box. Don't hold you breath though, some armies that really need a model update didn't get any (Skaven say hi!).
