I just had a look at the PDF... I do wonder if it's much better than simply mixing up some washes yourself...

yeah, I doubt it... I think these effects are just as easily aquired with paints, and those wouldn't need a fixing layer of varnish!

In the past I've used such things on model railroads, which was usefull, but that was before I found out about any paints beside the oldskool oilbased revell paints... Smile

I'll stick with my paints and skip this fashion fag.. - if it ever manages to become one Wink

I have been using MIG pigments/weathering powders for a while now, mainly on 40k tanks/WWW2 models
But i also have use them on my newer mordheim bases/models(mainly around the edges of clothing) to give it a more dirty/dusty look, i could probably do these with paint but im lazy at times, plus its more simple to do Razz

But yeah i wouldn't know what these FW ones are like, from the PDF they seem to do the same thing.

I use the MIG powders a whole lot for flames of war and I think they're excellent and very useful. It would be very difficult to recreate what you can do with MIG powders with paint, but to each his own I suppose.

Very similar to Dr O'Brien's Weathering Powders. Model Railroaders have been using these for quite a few years now. OF COURSE, Forge World's cost roughly twice as much for half the amount.

Me, on my figures i don't mind doing washes. For a weathered look, a painter wants the color to get in between the edges. these new bottles might only do the top layers and not in the inner detail, only washes do that.

Actually, you're quite wrong. The powders stick best in crevices or areas with a lot of surface detail so they will go in between edges very well. However, their purpose isn't really for shading so that's not typically how they're used anyways. Washes generally serve a separate purpose in weathering. They can tone colors down to make them look faded and such. A powder is generally just there to represent something that has come in to contact with a surface (dust, soot, rust etc) rather than an aging of the surface itself.

I'm confused, is Forge World associated with Games Workshop somehow?

Yes, of course! They are a subdivision of GW, kind of like Black Library or Warhammer Historical (though the latter is now part of Forge World). It's easily visible from the Forge World site, isn't it?

Says Warhammer and GW all over the place and just check the "credits" at the bottom.
