We all know that Citadel is coming out with their new paint lines, and 145 new paints is pretty exciting. However, I am sure all of us have an army in the works. Well, lucky for us, we have a new paint conversion chart, and here it is. Enjoy.

This was sent to me, and is a scan from the latest White Dwarf. Please if someone wants credit as a source for things sent into me, please include thats its alright to include your name/ online name.

On a personal note, I am behind on a lot of things this week. Extremly busy week. I am working on the BlogExchange and plan on doing an updated spotlight tomorrow, and well, pics of the week will just have to wait until next Tuesday.

  4. I may be slow on the uptake. It's great that you have the world as the background for your blog again. Love it! Thanks.

  5. @Enkiel, it's in the new White Dwarf. Why buy a separate item for it? Take it to a Kinko's or Staples and see if they can make a High Density copy and put a gloss sheet over it if you do not want to rip the mag.

    BTW- the name yours, or is it based off of Enkil and Enlil?

  8. I just love how some of the colours aren't even close.
    Apparently Necron Abyss and Regal blue are both close to Kantor Blue...

  9. Wow, if this chart is accurate I need to buy some old paint fast.
    My Deathwing in Bleached bone will not look even close in the pistachio/light green that is "Ushabti Bone"

  10. The PDF is poorly colour managed, the real colours are not even close to the One in this print so in real life it might be a better match.

    1. Doesn't change the fact that they are equating both Regal Blue and Necron Abyss, two very different shades of blue, to Kantor blue.
      They really should have had like a colour mixing chart so you can mix the new colours to get a better approximation of the old ones.

    2. ^Agreed. Just as well I have a spare pot of Regal Blue to finish my 1k Sons with.

  11. I agree with LegenMythMan...especially considering it's a bit of a soapbox of mine. please don't judge color on a screen, or even a print-out from a PDF. I'm glad they put out a chart like this, mind you, but make your comparisons using live paint whenever possible.

    At the same time, I'm going to go buy a bunch of the current line's Devlan Mud, Gryphonne Sepia and Deneb Stone.

    1. I'm a little confused where the confidence to make LegenMythMan's statement comes from, & I think he is too:
      He starts out with a definitive statement that the PDF is not accurate, then ends the sentence with "it might be".

      I totally respect Tim's painting, & of course you should match color to real paint & not a computer image! However there's a reasonable margin of error for a flat, non-metallic like bleached bone, the replacement may be lighter or darker, perhaps more brown , yellow, or more cream colored....
      But light green? Common, guys let's keep it real here.

    2. Might want to try reading his post again as you're comparing two independent statements. He said the paint 'is' different from the pdf, but that the real color 'might be' a better match. It being different from the pdf in no way implies that it's a better match.
