Well I have to go with BuyPainted (Sorry Nuke :( ) I believe this is a bad business move on GW and will cost the consumer and retailer alot of money. My local retail store had to chalk up 1k for the new racks which is bad in my mind and for a new hobbyist getting into Warhammer, and will have to buy 3 paint pots of the same paint just thinned down to different levels. This will scare off any new kids trying to get into this hobby if they stick with the GW line of products and dont know any other product of paints to use. Look at the price for the whole set and compare them to other brands. You will start to see GW competitors as the real deal and GW as a rip off especially the amount of paint you get in each bottle from other lines.
I am a Vallejo paints man myself from the Model line to Air. And recently trying out P3 paints due to the liquid pigments they use instead of dry pigments traditionally used in most paint line.(another post later)
Ok you heard my view on this let me know what you think and check out these vids from Nuke and BuyPainted.
