The issue is customs and delays, not everyone will even ship to India and there's a chance the paints could sit forever.

So I'm planning a big order when I go to Japan next month.

Not to Necro an old thread but,

I would like to update this letting you all know, Bone white (Vellejo) is the equivalent to Ushabti Bone.

Bone white = Screaming skull

I am currently waiting to get another paint from them, Skeleton Bone primer paint. Which is part of their air range, will let you know once i get it how it pans out.

Hi, I was at home and I noticed that this row is actually wrong
Wazdakka Red Red Gore* Gory Red (011) Cavalry Brown (982) Natural Leather (34) Carnage Red (9135) Vampire Red (129) Dragon Red (WP1105) 940008

Cavalry Brown is a true brown that does not look what Wazdakka Red and Red Gore is. I think RED (70926) is a much much closer color to Gory Red (sorry, I only own Vallejo Paints. I would like to edit the table, but I don't know if I am allowed without the agreement of the community of something

Cheers

Vallejo themselves have said that Cavalry Brown is their closest equivalent to Wazdakka Red in the Model Color line (see link at the bottom of the chart).

Not sure if anyone has already asked this but:

Would it be possible to add in some of the Tamiya paint ranges to the chart? There's a couple hobby stores near where I live and they always have Tamiya paints, but don't really restock Vallejo paints that I really like, so I don't know which colours match up.

Thanks

Have you tried Vallejo's own equivalency chart?

OMG I hate GW paint names SO SO MUCH.

I've been going nuts trying to find silver in my collection.

Turns out it's called Runefang Steel. Because apparently silver and steel are the same color

I have something in there called 'The Fang' I have no idea what color it might be, it's not bone or ivory though.

Thank you Dakka paint guide!

The Fang is a darker blueish grey. Effectively the basecoat for what would have been Space Wolves Grey in the past

Great chart. I would be interested in two things: first of it would be nice to have a mark for the colors that are the closest to primary and secondary colors. Secondly is their a way or could it be indicated each complementary color of any given color in the chart ? Like Red Gore closest to complementary color is Dark Angel green. Guess it would be very useful. Thanks!

I looked up a few colors on the dakka Compability Chart and found them to differ greatly (not just slightly) to how the colors look on Vallejo's PDF-chart here:

http://cdn.acrylicosvallejo.com/2d567ed91fb58cdc74108685395ac19a/CC070-Rev14.pdf

For example, have a look at the Dakka-chart at 'Doombull Brown' (New Citadel)... according to the dakka chart this translates to Vallejo Model Color named 'Mahogany Brown (846)'.
But if you look at 'Mahogany Brown (846)' in Vallejos own chart (link above) you'll see that it's a completely different color.

It was the same (big difference) with more colors as well... With such big differences it makes the dakka chart rather useless, or am I missing something here?
Just wondering :-)

There is no hard and fast 'rules' for paint compatibility. It all boils down to the method the person used to determine which color in one paint line is the closest equivalent to a color in a different paint line.

So many GW colours missing from this chart. Im finding it a struggle to find equivalents or even close colors for some things that other guides use. :( Like stormhawk blue or stegadon scale.

Cool I figured as much as I used to have to mix chaos black into codex grey to get a nice dark one. Thanks!

Who can make adjustments here? It say mechanicus standard grey is the same as Russian uniform in vallejo. I can confirm Russian uniform is green not grey.

Vallejo themselves say that Russian Uniform is their closest equivalent to Mechanicus Standard Grey in the Model Color line.

In the paint chart it says Polished Gold is like Shining Gold. I think GWs Auric Armour Gold is like Polished Gold. and IMO Polished Gold is not like Shining Gold. But Glorious gold is like Shining Gold. And I also Retributor Armor is like Shining Gold.

There is a german company called Kreul that has paints that are suitable for painting models. They are not as resistant to damage as the standard citadel and vajeho ones, but as long as you seal them that shouldn't be a problem. They are cheap and come in large pots, you get more paint for less money. Their coverage is mostly good and I have never seen them split. I think they should be added to the paint compatibility range.
Matte range: https://www.c-kreul.de/KREUL-Acrylic-matt-paint.249.0.html?&L=1
Gloss range: https://www.c-kreul.de/KREUL-Acrylic-gloss-paints.248.0.html?&L=1
Metalic range: https://www.c-kreul.de/KREUL-Acrylic-metallic-paints.247.0.html?&L=1
Flourescent range: https://www.c-kreul.de/KREUL-Acrylic-Day-fluorescent.984.0.html?&L=1

I am unsure as to where exactly they are available, I have seen them in some hobby shops and in Muller, so they should be available in europe at least.

I'd like to make a suggestion for a change on the chart, the Vallejo Game Color match for the old Midnight Blue isn't Night Blue, it's actually Stormy Blue.

Night Blue is closer to Kantor Blue, where as Stormy Blue is an exact match for the old Midnight Blue.

your mind

Anyone looking for direct matches to GW colors should see INSTAR paints - search for threads here on DAKKA for contact info or send me a PM and I will send you direct contact info. Large bottles, great service, new company delivering ideal results at half the price. INSTAR has a side by side color chart. Again, PM me and I can send it to you or if there is interest then I will post one up.

(Hoping it's alright to reply to this thread, even though the last post was 3 months ago.)

I just have a few recommendations for the article:

1. Vallejo Game Colour Dead Flesh is nowhere near a match for Nurgling Green. If I had to suggest a straight-from-the-pot Citadel equivalent for Dead Flesh, it'd be Ogryn Camo (which doesn't seem to be on the chart yet), but even that's not quite yellow enough.

2. Khorne Red can be used as a first-stage highlight over Army Painter Chaotic Red, it's that much brighter. They're definitely not comparable.

3. I think Backspacehacker was trying to say that Vallejo Game Color Bonewhite is a closer match to Screaming Skull than Ushabti Bone. From my experience, this is correct. It's slightly dimmer than Screaming Skull, but it's a lot brighter than Ushabti Bone.
