So at first... And then!!!

Well I'm a photographer by trade and when I initially played with the I thought photo tool was a little limited. I could not grab a photo from my library. When I was selecting a color scheme it wouldn't let me save or create at a custom one. There is also only a limited selection of preprinted model examples to draw my inspiration from.
... but then, I decided to tape a picture of an image on my computer. WOW! The app came up with several preprinted color schemes and one of them was spot on! It was painted on a jet pack but it gave me step by instructions. The image was made of 2 distinct colors and shades there of. The the app knew that and found a scheme incorporating both of them wonderfully!!!
While I think The app could use some flushing out like a section for airbrush or wet blending It more than impressed me! I am absolutely heading to my awesome new Warhammer Store (shout out to Store #94!!!) To pick up the paints as soon I I get off work!...
P.S. I'm writing this review at work since I couldn't wait to post!

Amazing for all skill levels

They have knocked it out of the park with this app. Being able to see how colors will look based on a few colors and techniques is such an amazing feature. I love using this app when determining how to paint a new color or style I'm less familiar with. It also gives a good sense of other colors you might not think to try.

I only have two minor issues.
1.) I wish you could sort the paint inventory/wishlist based on colors (instead of alphabetically) similar to how they are sorted when you go buy them from a FLGS. Their display rack is so helpful, and being able to see the colors in triplet and around similar colors is helpful when selecting the right styles.
2.) I wish they would display some of the colors on things that aren't the backpacks. I would like to see all the flesh tones on an arm or leg so I could get a better sense of what they look like.

Useful with great potential

This app is great for the basics. Every new painter will find this resource to be pure gold. They will find video tutorials that will help them build up a standard skill set. What I love the most, however, is the color-matching function; it's genius! I don't know all the citadel colors by heart so knowing which matches the color I want is a great resource. It would be nice to see this app expanded to include a library of hobbying articles to help build upon and expand the hobbyist skill-set. Basing would be an easy one that GW could easily keep promoting its products; the skull and vegetation sets they just put out, or how to use spare parts from kits to spice up the bases, and also include how to use other elements like cork, random pieces from nature, etc, to make more interesting bases. Just an idea :) I can't wait to see if they will expand this app!
