    Default New GW Paint Pots?

    Has anyone else seen these?

    Is this needed? The only reason I can see is cheaper plastic, but I doubt we will get any price break out of it.

    They seal better so the paints don't dry out a quickly in storage. Not important for the paints you use a lot but nice for those that only get used once in a while.

    I really like how they did these paints yet I will have to try them out before making a real decision on them.
    Only in Death are we innocent!

    Yeah, I'll give 'em a shot as well, I just didn't know there were any problems with the current batch.

    They look better because the color is on the top that alone is worth the change for me

    Ditto. I have to say that I've not had much problem with GW paint pots in the past, apart from difficulty opening some due to the little tabs breaking off the lids. I still have some paint pots from the late nineties that are still useable.

    Ask not the EldarGal a question, for she will give you three answers, all of which are puns and terrifying to know. Back off man, I'm a feminist. Ia! Ia! Gloppal Snode!

    I concur that having the color on the top of the pot will be nice, but then again I always did that with my own. Just painted the color on the lid. However if they are meant for keeping the paint good over a period of time in storage then I will be buying them. It works great when I am deployed to the field for 3-4 months at a time.

    Frankly, I wish they would switch to eye dropper bottles like Vallejo. I switched over to Vallejo over 3 years ago literally because I was tired of having to deal with the paint pots. The eye dropper bottles let me put out just a few drops at a time so that the whole bottle doesn't dry out. Also it makes mixing very easy. Sure I could use a separate eye dropper and pull paint out of the paint pots that way but that is just added effort.

    I also use Vallejo Game Color paints and inks. I do use the GW washes, they are a great way to make my mediocre paint work look better

    The washes are great and I use them a lot. Prior to that I used Wonderwash Ink (actually, I still use it quite a bit since it is not quite as heavy as Badab Black).
