Default New "Revoloutionary" painting tool?

Sorry if this has already come up, but i dont go on this board much, but i was intrigued by an item in WD 337, page 64. It has a picture of a black item, that looks a bit like a paint pot, and it has a question mark on it, and underneath, the description reads "Whats this?, well we dont know, but were told it will revolutionize the way you paint citadel models"

I was wondering wether anyone knows what this object is, what it does, when it will be released, blah blah blah

It's probably their new inks. From what I hear, it's basically ink with future floor polish already mixed in. Revolutionary? Hardly. Convenient? Sure.

There's also been some talk recently that the new paint pots may be a special mixture designed for the upcoming GW airbrush, which would be a bit more "revolutionary" than inks.

GW airbrush? I was excited for maybe two seconds, when I remember it will cost three times as much as a top of the line airbrush already, and work maybe half as good.

Pre-thinned paints for airbrushing makes sense. Vallejo does it with their Model Air line.

GW's coming out with their own airbrush? How odd. Probably end up being a re-badged Aztek and as already pointed out more expensive than the original.

Yeah, it sounds kind of odd. It apparently looks like a hand flamer and if I remember correctly isn't going to be too terribly expensive and I think is being manufactured by a decent company.

When is this airbrush rumored to be coming out then? If it's real...

What I think will be really funny is if it's one of those airbrushes that uses lil cans of air. Knowing GW, they'll come out with their own "Hobby Air" for about 3x the price of normal canned air. And I wouldn't be surprised if they claimed it was because their air was "Specially formulated for the needs of hobbiests. BUY TEH GIANT!"

*yes, the "Teh" was intentional there
