Warhammer Fest : Live test of the Contrast paint line
Hello everyone !!!
2ps Podcast is present at Warhammer fest and had the occasion to try and film using the Games Workshop : Contrast paint.
The model painted is one of the new Nurgle poxwalker for Warhammer 40000). It look a lot like wash painting but with more definition and cleaner.
Honnestly the result is quite ok for the time spent. I wonder if i can mix the technique with pre-lighting with an Air Brush. I could finish a lot of my miniatures with this ^^

Anyway that look Promising, can't wait to try this new paint range by Games Workshop, still no info on the price (starting to be scared)
If you were under a rock yesterday and missed all the Warhammer Fest hype :
Contrast is a new type of paint designed made by Games Workshop to make awesome results accessible to anyone, fast. With Contrast, you’ll have everything you get from a Base and Shade, but in a single application and a single coat.
In a Nutshell Games Workshop allow you to paint one thick coat and finish your Age of Sigmar army (or Warhammer 40 000) and in few days only.
Age of Sigmar Warhammer Fest thread 2
Hello again !!
The Warhammer : Age of Sigmar seminar for this Warhammer Fest is done and here what we have learned :
Warcry is the new game by Games Workshop in the Mortal realm (Age of Sigmar universe). It's a Skirmish game inspired by both Necromunda and Kill Team, where Chaos Warband fight each others to the death or Glory in Varanspire the Archaon Citadelle. Games Workshop already announced that Non Chaos warband would be playable at start.
Warhammer : Warcry is set for release in July. It's a new game that will be supported my multiple future release (no details Yet).
To increase the Hype, warhammer tv team made a LARP video ^^
New Chaos Warband for Warhammer : Warcry
These guys might hail from the Realm of Life, but they’ve got nothing but death for their foes! And snakes – lots and lots of snakes. These guys show off facets of Chaos rarely seen on the tabletop, as one of the insidious murder cults who use cunning as much as brute force to claim victory. Just like with the Iron Golems and Untamed Beasts, the Splintered Fang show off new aspects of Chaos – there’s even an aelf amongst them!
Shadespire Underworld, is the Games Workshop card game in the Age of Sigmar world. he's continuing his successful existence with loads of events around the globe. The season 2 is coming to an End and they already announced the season 3.
Also they spoiled a model :
The General Handbook is the ultimate Game Supplement for Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
The Edition 2019 is split into 2 books.
This year’s essential guide for gaming in the Mortal Realms is packed with content for every kind of player. For open play, a new Open War army generator means you’ll be able to rally your forces in moments, while close-quarters battles and Hidden Agendas offer fresh challenges for you to get your teeth into.
For narrative players, you’ll be able to get stuck in with an in-depth set of rules for fighting in the cities and ruins of the Mortal Realms in Streets of Death. New mercenary companies allow you to add a selection of narrative-led, thematic units to your army. Perhaps you’ll employ the Maneaters of the Gutstuffers, or a Gargant from the notorious Grugg Brothers. Meanwhile, characterful name generators for loads of factions mean you’ll never be with our an appropriately epic moniker for your favourite Hero!
Matched play won’t just be receiving new battleplans, but rather a whole new way to play, aimed at making smaller games viable for tournaments and competitive events. Balanced around the 1,000-point mark, Meeting Engagements offer key twists on normal Warhammer Age of Sigmar gameplay, is fast to play and takes up a smaller space than a fully fledged game. This makes it ideal if you’re building up an army, fancy a new challenge or just want to squeeze as many gamers into your club as possible!
It's really interesting to see small points battle for Age of Sigmar getting focus. A lot of Small FLGS or Warhammer store do one day small Age of Sigmar tournaments but the game balance is always a bit meh. Now if we get Battleplan and "sutff" to play good games at 1k points sign me in !
-Warcry is going to be an Awesome Skirmish game in the Age of Sigmar setting.
-Shadespire Season 3 announced (never doubted it)
-Age of sigmar 1000 pt small tournament format
-General Handbook 2019 is 2 books instead of 1
Forge World : Specialist Games Warhammer Fest thread
Hello everyone !!
The 3 big news are from Forge World are :
-Necromunda : Palatine Enforcer (Not arbiter but works do police work for the Halmwar House)
-Aeronautica Imperialis : Could be a stand alone game, or Titanicus expension or Both
-Blood Bowl : First woold elfs player (3d render)
More info on the Halfing release spread, Really happy that Forge World added some positionnal to the Halfling team. I totally agree they are supposed to be the most challenging team to play but it's good to have some profile variation. Good job Forge World !
Could also work as a Dryad hero or leader in a Sylvaneth army (for Age of sigmar game)
Even if i Bad mouthed recent models made by Forge World, some of the Necromunda miniature presented here are awesome.
ps : Necromunda video title is Helmawr 's justice (the ruling family of Necromunda world)
Titanicus game is growing on me these days, i really need to convince a few friends to start playing !!.
To bad this game is so expensive i would have loved that Games Workshop helped reduce the price a bit more at least for starter pack. Right now the entry price is high.
Super Hyped by Titanicus release. but can't wait for the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Seminar !
I really like that Games Workshop is allowing Forge World to support a full line for Titanicus. The game grow deeper by the day. Now i just hope we will get warhammer 40 000 units to integrate into the Titanicus Game.
Horus Heresy Fest thread
Hello everyone !!
HH Malevolence seminar ended (there is a second one tomorow) :
New game : Apocalypse
Hello everyone !
More details on the new apocalypse game !
The new Apocalypse brings grand strategy to your tabletop with an all-new gaming system designed to simulate the 41st Millennium’s most colossal conflicts. Detachments move in unison to perform devastating assaults, and as a Warmaster commanding an apocalyptic army, you’ll be making decisions that affect the lives of hundreds of your miniatures at a time.
Downtime between your actions is minimal, meaning even the most massive games stay engaging. Damage is resolved at the end of the turn – so if you’ve been waiting for weeks to use that Reaver Titan, your enemy won’t get to shoot it off the table before it has a chance to retaliate! It’s brutal, it’s strategic, and it’s got some of the most intense, concentrated carnage ever seen in a tabletop wargame.
The Apocalypse boxed set is your gateway to a world of bigger battles. The 120-page Field Manual contains the full rules to the system alongside tips for organising your games and building your collection, while 6 sheets of punch-out tokens make keeping track of the battlefield at a glance simple. 300 Command Asset cards give you a huge range of tactical choices and include bespoke options for many Warhammer 40,000 Factions, from cunning manoeuvres to the return of the infamous vortex grenade.
Getting involved with Apocalypse will be simple. All the rules you need to play the game are in the box, and the rules for your army will be available to download free at launch. Apocalypse has been designed to be highly scalable and to work with your existing collection, so if you already have a Warhammer 40,000 army, you have an Apocalypse Detachment ready to go – just team up with some friends, and you’ve got yourself a game!
To celebrate the launch of the new edition of Apocalypse, we’re inviting you to be a part of wargaming history. Later this year, at Warhammer World, you’ll have the chance to help us break the record for the largest Warhammer game in history – stay tuned for more details on how you can get involved soon.
-Free army rules and only need the Boxed game.
-Work with 40k units.
-Deck building element.
-Damage resolved at the end of turn so everyone get to shoot at least once !
Color me intrigued !
Warhammer 40000 Warhammer Fest thread
Hello everyone !!
Warhammer Fest for Warhammer 40K (40000) seminar is done and here the news :
-New Primaris Space Marines main battle tank : The Repulsor Executioner. It was expected, if Primaris marines are supposed to replace small Marines, you better grow the line up if you don't want to loose too much money. And i am sure that Games Workshop Like gainning money ^^ (So expect more Primaris release for the next Codex)
-Mechanicus is gaining 1 tank and 1 transport for warhammer 40 000. Very good, i am not a big fan of the MBT version but the Transport could have been in a Steam punk Normandy D-day ^^ Not sure that the model fit into the Mechanicus line.
The Repulsor Executioner is a massive front-line battle tank that marries maneuverability, flexibility and some of the heaviest firepower in the 41st Millennium. Capable of shredding infantry and armour alike with contemptuous ease, if you’re looking to scrap your opponents’ heaviest units, this is the vehicle for you!
Executioner has a modest transport capacity, allowing you to disgorge a squad of Primaris Space Marines to finish off anyone with the audacity to stay standing.
So Primaris Marines Razorback !
Now i wonder what is going to be the Predator and the Raider of the Primaris marines ^^
Mechanicus Tank / Transport kit.
This one is cool !
The Imperial Knight is an immediately iconic design, and it can’t be improved upon – but you can add spikes.
This kit is all-new, and packed with grisly details that make it instantly recognisable as a dark mirror of its loyalist kin – all while maintaining great posability and plenty of options for customisation. You’ll be able to build either a brutal Knight Rampager or the dominating Knight Despoiler, with a range of armour plates, faces, spikes and horns for making your Chaos Knight your own.
Accompanying the new Chaos Knight will be a fully fledged codex that lets you unleash the true might of the Questor Traitoris on the battlefield. All the Knight patterns from Index: Renegade Knights will still be usable, only now you’ll be able to combine them with Stratagems, Warlord Traits, Relics and, of course, Knight Rampagers and Knight Despoilers. New lore, meanwhile, will allow you to explore the shadowy history of the Chaos Knights – as much veterans of the Long War as their Heretic Astartes kin, with thousands of years of history behind them that sheds a new light on the dark powers of Chaos.
New Warhammer 40 000 Chaos Knight kit is awesome, one of my favorite ever !! I really want paint one at least !! I wonder what options are going to be in the Codex. Games Workshop is really making it hard on the wallet.
The most anticipated / Asked army ever is coming back to Warhammer 40 000. The sisters of Battle !!
I don't know when Game workshop is going to release this army but i want this one !!!
You’ll be able to get this model for yourself in a special advance release ahead of the rest of the Sisters of Battle. Stay tuned for news on how you can get yours…

Constrast Paint (one thick coat)
Hello everyone !!
This is it, the new contrast paint line, one think coat over white to get shade and base coat
Contrast is a new type of paint designed to make awesome results accessible to anyone, fast. With Contrast, you’ll have everything you get from a Base and Shade, but in a single application and a single coat.
Contrast is more than just a new paint though – it’s a whole new way to approach painting. For those after a Battle Ready finish, the Contrast Method has been devised to make awesome results easily attainable for absolutely anyone. You’ll be able to get your models ready for the tabletop in no time.
Contrast is designed to be super simple to use. If you’ve ever wanted to tackle a hundreds-strong horde of Orks, a Hive Fleet’s worth of Tyranids or a skeletal horde that’d impress Nagash himself, but never thought you could get them all painted, Contrast is for you. If you’ve got a tournament in two weeks and just need to add the latest unit to your army, Contrast is for you. If you’re just looking to save some time and get gaming, Contrast is for you.
For you experienced painters, Contrast is a new weapon in your arsenal. It has distinctive properties and flow, both of which are unlike anything you’ve used before. On its own, it’s a great time saver – but combined with the rest of the Citadel paint range, it’s got incredible potential. Blending, glazes, and smooth gradients are easier to achieve than ever, and to help you experiment with this new paint, we’ll also be launching a new Contrast Medium which gives pros even more opportunities to play with this new paint’s unique properties. And with dozens of Contrast colours at launch, the sky’s the limit.
Those attending Warhammer Fest today will have a chance to try out this new paint for themselves. They’ll be able to chat with our own Army Painter and ‘Eavy Metal teams, who have spent the last few months experimenting with this new tool themselves. Meanwhile, our technical team are on hand to talk about the development of Contrast.
34 colors + 2 undercoats
Release Date is June
