Twenty-five new hues of Contrast paint are going to be joining the collection. The focus is on providing vibrant and vivid colours for your miniatures as well as more solid options with better coverage. Contrast is still a tool that you'll need to get used to using but it does offer a very quick and easy way to paint up armies without much hassle.

Contrast also works really nicely alongside regular paints. It's neat mixing up shades with thinned down Contrast and also using it to work lovely blends into cloaks, magical weapons and more.

Seven new Shades also join the collection and offer up additional options for adding depth to your miniatures.

I think Soulblight Grey is going to become a go-to for those looking to do simple white armour. The additional primary colour Shades are going to mean that you can add a subtle difference to your miniatures and make block colours pop a little more.

Capping all of this off is the new White Scar spray that should offer up a nice, clean white basecoat to your miniatures.

The idea is that this will pop with a more brilliant white and shouldn't need too much extra work. You should, much like Wraithbone and Grey Seer, just be able to apply Contrast right over the top of this and make things look very tasty indeed.

Are you going to be picking up some of these new Contrast and Shade paints?
