If you are able to make them, I will add them to the swatches.

I can make them. I'll have to see what was new from the last ReaperCon. I will assume the CAV KS paints will be in swatches on the website as they will be production paints. And I don't have them yet (of course) to make swatches anyhow!

I've got all the KickStarters covered from the campaign pages. Just need the special edition swatches.

This may be overkill for a color swatch (or just the right kind of killing?). But I'm almost in the mood to buy myself an X-Rite color checker and take color corrected pictures of all of my paints.


It'll be far from being the whole MSP collection. But it's still several scores of bottles (mostly Bones 1-2, LTPB kit).


That is EXACTLY how I make the swatches.  I have it to profile my photo printers already and use it to do the swatches I paint.

I know this is near impossible, but I have a couple of samples and want to try to figure out what color they are or are supposed to be.  I know some are "mistakes" but i cannot imagine Anne's "mistakes being that far off the mark.  Any ideas how to make a good "guesstimate".

I think that relatively few are true mistakes where a batch of paint was messed up. I believe that most of the samples are actually Anne experimenting with colors as she while she zeros in on a specific color in which case all you can really do is lump it into a general category. I would even hazard to guess that most of the samples are variations of theme colors that didn't quite hit the color that Anne wanted.

Would it be possible to get a COLOR family revision? 


Additionally, I the idea of taking the color family tree and putting the ENTIRE thing on one side a 11x17. Would it be possible to get this? I can print 11x17 here at work. :)

There have been several asking for this one. I'll work on it in the next few weeks. As far as printing on one 11x17 page, I'm not sure if that would be feasible. Once I get the color families setup, I'll experiment with that. It may not get released until Harrek gets the swatches made (if he has time).
