Color Equivalencies Chart

Recommended Posts

Dear Vaitalla:

 

I noticed that you posted some new paints and included Games Workshop Citadel paint color equivalencies. I found this to be very very helpful! ::): Can we get a more comprehensive list of Reaper/Citadel color equivalencies based on actual color code (to ensure 1 to 1 compatibility). I am having to relearn all my paint recipes with the MSPs and not having the best eye for color, I find this very diffcult.

 

A chart of Citadel/Reaper MSP equivalencies would be a big help, could Reaper produce one?

9136. Walnut Brown (PP Walnut equiv.)

9137. Blackened Brown (GW Scorched Brown equiv)

9138. Intense Brown (GW Beastial Brown equiv)

Dear Anne:

 

Psychic, hardly, just ask my wife! ::P: Perhaps you could make this a running sticky post on the forum?

 

Many thanks!

Cool! How about a comparison for MSPs to Plaid Apple Barrel paints ::P:

 

Just kidding! Seriously, I was just kidding. Put the knife down. Please.

I'm not Anne, but I actually was considering doing this at one point in time but stopped. To much on my plate and not enough time and I don't have the whole MSP color line yet.

Ummm, are you psychic? I just logged on here to post exactly that!! :lol:

 

I don't have the item numbers for the GW paints, and I know I've missed a few (which I'll correct when I have a sec, this list was constructed from my often-faulty memory), but they're listed by name in color groupings (browns all together, blues all together, etc.) so hopefully that will help. ::):

 

Without further ado...

 

Bleached Bone: Yellowed Bone 9143 (due out in December)

 

Who's your favoritest Anne of all time?? ::D: For those of you who use Vallejo Game Colors, you'll find these are fairly close equivalents; the Vallejos always seem to vary from the GW's they're meant to match, so it's hard to peg both perfectly. ::):

 

Hope that helped,

 

--Anne ::):

 

 

:bday:

You just made my CAV Merc Company very happy! Now if only you'd strench yer artistic talents and try painting a CAV or two :poke:

Blood Red: Clear Red 9094

Fiery Orange: Clear Orange 9130 (out in December)

Bad Moon Yellow: Clear Yellow 9095

Snot Green: Clear Green 9096

Liche Purple: Clear Plum 9132 (due out in December)

Imperial Purple: Clear Purple 9099

 

Maybe I am confused as I can only mail order Reaper Master Series paints. I was under the impression that clear colors were glazes. Are they regular colors?

Clear colors are regular paint, they just glaze very well when thinned, as they are quite transparent.

http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=64451 a book of vallejo paint chips or swatches, hand painted. How I wish I had $50!

 

Hrmm. I might need that...if I didn't already own over 150 of the colors. >.< Plus, with color matching, wet samples give the best comparison base. ::): But very interesting that they're marketing that, very interesting indeed! I wonder how many they've sold?

 

But I will quit my musing here, in order to not highjack my own thread. ::D:

Current in-progress equivalencies chart, on Reaper Matt's private site for now. Once we finish it we'll hopefully be able to transfer a version here to the Reaper site. ::):

But for now:

..and click on the Paint Equivalents link on the sidebar. ::):

How's this coming? I visited and got a database error, but I'm very interested in seeing this if/when it's done.

Thanks!

Well, it turns out my Vallejo:Master Series equivalency chart was accidentally wiped off the face of the server. I will now cry and begin attempting to reconstruct. ::(:
