Color Equivalencies

35 posts in this topic

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...

 

Skull White: Pure White 9039

Chaos Black: Pure Black 9037

Scab Red: Mahogany Brown 9070 is closest (browner) or 9001 Red Brick (purpler). A mix of these would probably be the best of both worlds and match really, really close. ::):

Red Gore: Deep Red 9002 is close

Blood Red: Clear Red 9094

Blazing Orange: Phoenix Red 9005

Fiery Orange: Clear Orange 9130

Golden Yellow: Marigold Yellow 9007

Sunlight Yellow: Sunlight Yellow 9008

Bad Moon Yellow: Clear Yellow 9095

Bilious Green: Spring Green 9146

Scorpion Green: Moth Green 9145

Goblin Green: Field Green 9167 is close

Snot Green: Clear Green 9096

Dark Angels Green: Pine Green 9010 is close, or mix Swamp Green 9175 with some Clear Green 9096.

Camo Green: Camoflage Green 9177

Catachan Green: Military Green 9176

Scaly Green/Jade Green etc.: The Reptilian Greens Triad 9184/9185/9186

Hawk Turquoise: Marine Teal 9077 is close

Ice Blue: Mix Clear Blue 9097 with Pure White 9039 to match

Lightning Blue: Sky Blue 9018 is close

Enchanted Blue: Cyan Blue 9117 or Sapphire Blue 9016 are close

Ultramarines Blue: Ultramarine Highlight 9189

Storm Blue: Ritterlich Blue 9115

Midnight Blue: Ultramarine Shadow 9187

Regal Blue: Brilliant Blue 9116

Nauseating Blue: Deep Amethyst 9079

Tentacle Pink: Close would be Pale Violet 9027 with a drop of white added

Warlock Purple: Clear Magenta 9098

Liche Purple: Clear Plum 9132

Imperial Purple: Clear Purple 9099

Codex Grey: Rainy Grey 9038

Shadow Grey: Twilight Blue 9020

Space Wolves Grey: Snow Shadow 9021 is close

Ghostly Grey: Ghost White 9063

Bleached Bone: Yellowed Bone 9143

Bubonic Brown: Tanned Leather 9031

Vomit Brown: Burnt Orange 9111; Leather Brown 9030 if you want it more

brown

Beastial Brown: Intense Brown 9138

Scorched Brown: Blackened Brown 9137

Snakebite Leather: Half-orc Highlight 9204

Leprous Brown: Saffron Sunset 9182

Vermin Brown: Chestnut Brown 9071 is close; a 50/50 mix of this and 9072

Rust Brown is close to perfect

Rotting Flesh: Bloodless Skin 9150 is very close

Elf Flesh: Rosy Highlight 9069

Bronzed Flesh: This color is very orange, and alarmingly close to Burnt

Orange 9111; however, I prefer a more natural skintone, 9044 Tanned

Skin, as a substitute for this one. If you want more warmth, mix 50/50 Tanned Skin 9044 with Golden

Shadow 9091.

Dwarf Flesh: Rosy Shadow 9067

Dark Flesh: Dark Skin 9041 would be closest. Add a drop of Ruddy Leather 9109 to deepen the color.

Burnished Gold: New Gold 9051

Shining Gold: Antique Gold 9050

Dwarf Bronze: Ancient Bronze 9049

Brazen Brass: Tarnished Brass 9198

Tin Bitz: Scorched Metal 9125

Mithril Silver: Polished Silver 9054

Chainmail: Honed Steel 9053

Boltgun Metal: Shadowed Steel 9052

 

Newer or previously neglected GW Colors:

 

Graveyard Earth: Uniform Brown 9127 is close, as is a 50/50 mix of 9161 Shield Brown and 9162 Driftwood Brown (though the latter is a little more grey)

Kommando Khaki: Terran Khaki triad is close

Fortress Grey: Misty Grey 9090 or Icy Grey 9174 may be close

Terracotta: Terracotta Clay 9170 is close

Desert Yellow: Dune Shadow 9154 is closest

Tanned Flesh: Fired Clay 9171 is closest

 

 

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,

Hello everyone, I'm new here, and the reason I'm here is because I need to replace a lot of my GW paints which have dried up and I've heard good things about reaper paints.

 

The only wrinkle is I've got an Iron Warriors army and I need to make sure the paints match since I really don't want to repaint a good portion of my army to match any new work.

 

So I went and searched for a Reaper to GW chart and a Vallejo to GW chart, and in doing so also found a Vallejo to Reaper chart as a bonus. So I created a spreadsheet to mash both charts together, and came up with a pretty comprehensive result. However, some of the Vallejo to Reaper chart contradicts the GW to Reaper chart, so, I have to ask, which is right?

It depends on the bottle of paint you are comparing it to - the light that you are comparing it under - and the angle which you are viewing it under (as well as a few dozen other even more subjective variables)...

 

You might find this useful as well: This.

Here's probably one of the best sites I've found for color matching between different paint brands. You put in the starting color you want to match, then using some color matching algorithms it matches that color to other colors in his database. He has scanned in samples of a great number of paints, even some long out of print ones and used some color software to analyze them. If he is missing a color that you have, you can help him out by sending him some color samples and the paint information. It really is one of the best sites I know.

 

When using these tools, you can also enter the Hexcode for a color if you know it and find paints that match it. I hope you can figure them out without a user guide, they are easy enough to use.

 

This one is the color match tool for a specific color paint.

 

http://colors.silicon-dragons.com/

 

This one is for matching an entire line of paints.

 

http://colors.silicon-dragons.com/full_line.php

 

This one is good for finding the different shades of a color so you can find good shade and highlight colors.

Hello Reaper Community,

 

 

Is there a conversion chart that would cross reference Reaper Master Series to the Liquitex line of artist’s colors?

I am looking to replace the following Liquitex colors with RMS very soon, but want to do so correctly.

 

Here's the list....

 

Liquitex # Liquitex Name Relative Chroma Opacity * MIX

 

116 Alizarin Crimson RP ^ RR YR Transp.

127 Burnt Sienna RR ^ YR YY Opaque

128 Burnt Umber RR Y^R YY Opaque

150 Cadmium Orange RR ^ YR YY Opaque

152 Cadmium Red Light PR RR ^ YR Opaque

160 Cadmium Yellow Light YR YY ^ YG Opaque

159 Cadmium Yell. Light Hue YO Y^Y YG Opaque

161 Cadmium Yellow Med YR ^ YY YG Opaque

164 Cerulean Blue BB ^ BP PP Opaque

166 Chromium Oxide Green YY YG ^ GG Opaque

170 Cobalt Blue BB BP ^ PP Opaque

186 Dioxazine Purple RP RR ^ YR Transp.

242 Indo Orange-Red RR ^RO OO Transp.

244 Ivory Black BLACK Opaque

500 Medium Magenta PP ^ RP RR Opaque

292 Naphthol Crimson RP R^R YR Transp.

601 Naples Yellow Hue RR YR ^ YY Opaque

312 Permanent Green Light YG GG ^ BG Opaque

317 Phthalocyanine Grn (blu shade) GG GB^ BB Transp.

319 Phthalocyanine Grn (Yel shade) YG ^ G G BG Transp.

316 Pthalocyanine Blue (grn shade) BY ^ PP RP Transp.

330 Raw Sienna RR Y^R YY Opaque

335 Red Oxide PR RR ^ YR Opaque

432 Titanium White WHITE Opaque

380 Ultramarine Blue (green shade) BB B^P PP Transl.

382 Ultramarine Blue (red shade) BB BP ^ PP Opaque

398 Viridian Hue Permanent GG ^ BG BB Opaque

411 Yellow Light Hansa YY ^ YG GG Transp.

416 Yellow Oxide YR ^ YY YG Opaque

? Cobalt Violet Hue BP ^PP RR ? *(186+292)

? Mauve Hue BP ^ PP RR ? *(186+292)

? Cadmium Vermilion Hue RR Y^R YY ? *(242+292)

? Phthalocyanine Yellow-Green Hue YR YY ^ YG ? *(411+317)

? Vermilion Hue RR Y^R YY ? *(242+292)

 

* The last five colors in this list are not usually available in acrylic color, and are generally only available in artist's

oils. They can however be produced through a mixture.

 

If anyone is familiar enough with traditional artist colors, I would greatly appreciate your help converting my palete.

 

FYI- I have already tried many of the paint equivalency charts and sites; for some reason Liquitex is never listed.

 

Thanks for your help,

 

AVASAR

 

 

Ps- Sorry if this post ends up oddly formatted; this is my first post :unsure:.

Also, if it would be easier, I have this list in an excel document including the actual pigments used. (???)
