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,

--Anne ::):

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)...

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.silico...m/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 artistís 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. (???)
