Recently had a few warhammer paints open up in like a lumpy blob, I bought changeling pink and emperors children pink (both look very different in the pot but near identical on the model :() the changeling was useless without being watered down and even now has little lumps that occasionaly need wiping off my model whereas emperors was as smooth and perfect as you like. Its not the first paint, should I take them back or just acknowledge this is normal?

@Draykorinee Changeling Pink is a Citadel Dry paint, which means it's made specifically for drybrushing (according to GW). They're meant to be thick and have the viscosity you've described, so I wouldn't worry about the quality of it - it sounds about right. These paints shouldn't be watered down.

Emperor's Children is from the Citadel Layer range and should have a nice and fluid consistency, requiring minimal thinning down for use (I like to thin them down anyway).

If you've had issues with other paints in your range of colours then check the pot - anything with 'DRY' under the Citadel logo should have the same consistency as your Changeling Pink. Anything without it shouldn't be a lumpy blob. I hope this helps. :thumbsup:

@Draykorinee Yeh, Emperor's for standard painting and Changeling for drybrushing, although I sometimes use paints which aren't dry for drybrushing too.
