New paint pots spotted in GW store

So I was strolling about the shopping arcade today and decided to stop in the local Games Workshop store. After meeting with one of the new team members (since the previous ones where all sacked) and chatting about using camouflage with guard, and the merits of using a simple design palate, I decided to wonder around the shop to see if there was anything worth picking up. As usual there was not (thanks to WCC and their awesome selection) However I did notice a familiar fat little paint pot sitting in amongst its hexagonal brothers. While the new pots where only available for the gloss and clear coat this dose confirm that the new design will be implemented, and possibly sooner then we suspected. I also picked up a hot tip that Dark Eldar are slotted for September with demons soon to follow, but more on that later.

  1. They better! lol (its October from what i heard and the fantasy starter set is September :) ) Also i want to get my hands on one of those!

  2. Was in GW the other day picking up some paints, and while most were in the old style there were a couple in the new. Picked up some Hawk Turquoise in the new style, but haven't had a chance to try it out yet so can't really comment on how they are to use.

  3. The staff turnover in GW stores is colossal.

  4. @ John
    Yes, the whole staff was outed and replaced by 3 people on a rotating shift, part of GWs new store plan.

    That's what I saw as well. GW has to sell out the old paint first before they can bring the new stuff in. So its going to be piecemeal.
