A quick heads-up as I know a lot people on SF make use of the Citadel Colour paints from Games Workshop for their scratchbuilds.

All of the range is being withdrawn for a re-release and expansion of the range to be launched on 7th April. The current colours will be renamed which will mean that you won't recognise any of the names.

This is for two reasons - firstly the manufacturer of the paints is changing and colour matches may not be 100% with the older paints (which GW have had problems with before) so the names will be different to head off customer complaints and secondly some of the their older paints were generically named and the names couldn't be trademarked leading to other companies producing equivalent paints with very similar names.

So if you make extensive use of some colours and can't live without them stock up in the next couple of weeks before they disappear!!

Their magazine White Dwarf will be carrying a colour match list to match up old names to new ones but in all honesty this will be on-line within minutes of release and I'll link to it then. Save yourself £4 by not buying their glorified catalogue.

Games Workshop went into administration earlier today (21st March 2012).

It is unclear whether the shops will remain open so get in quick if you want the paints.

And cross your fingers for the 6,000 employees.
