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.

Vallejo says in their Equivalent Values PDF that VGC Dead Flesh is their equivalent (i.e., closest match) for Nurgling Green.

cannot correlate their innate inferiority with their inevitable
defeat. It would seem that stupidity is as eternal as war.'

Noticed Averland Sunset seems to be wrong, the code I find only (which seems to match the look of the colour) is FCB825

How would we go about getting my line INSTAR added to the list?

Our matches are quite possibly the closest in the industry with around 98-99% accuracy

Closest match to Mephiston Red is Vallejo Carmine Red, imo. As well as Khorne Red seems to look like Vallejo Red.

All praise the Omnissiah!

Closest match to Mephiston Red is our Crimson Red, it's practically impossible to tell the difference.

Our Equivalent to Khorne Red is Wine Red, It has a little more punch to it pigment wise, side by side you would notice a slight difference but by itself, you'd have a hard job to tell the difference

INSTAR Vintage covers the Old Citadel Range, So Crimson Red is our 1:1 match for Mephiston Red and IV-07 is our 1:1 match for Mechrite Red

Hello, I am fairly new to miniature painting; the chart has helped me a lot. But there's one particular color that I just can't find an equivalent of anywhere. Does anyone know any of the equivalencies to Citadel's Death Guard Green?

Depending on its hue I'd look at something like game color dead flesh, or one of the military type greens in the Vallejo Model Color range, there are a lot. You can probably find something that's a close approximation.

The paint chart here is pretty out of date,and often flat out wrong in many, many cases (a lot of the approximations aren't even close to being the paint it says is compatible). This is one of the best resources I've found for comparing since it actually has color swatches, not just hex codex:

Not enough posts in the forum to edit the wiki. New URL to Vallejo PDF, link to acrylicosvallejo.com/en/hobby-color-charts/ then point to the game color PDF that is being regularly updated.
Also, Humbrol has a conversion chart towards Tamiya, Revell and Vallejo Model color: uk.humbrol.com/support-and-advice/advice/humbrol-wallchart, check "Humbrol Enamel Paint Conversion Chart" PDF.

Sorry to add to this old discussion. I came across this old article on the Reaper Forum where Anne Foerstor typed what she considered were the equivalents in the RMP series compared to the old Citadel paints. It was posted December 22, 2007 but may still be relevant. Not sure if this was used originally to make the list, Most of the paints are spot on what Anne suggests with a few deviations.

https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/34534-color-equivalencies/

I'm getting back into painting miniatures after many many years of careers getting in the way. I use RPM, Old Citadel paints (plus the foundations and washes), VGC and VMC, Tamiya Acrylics, and the old Hobby craft range Miniature Paints, most are still in great condition apart from half of the inks have precipitated out of solution and bound into a lump at the bottom of the paint. All my old Citadel inks are dead, but with some flow medium and a vortex, I've managed to revive nearly all my paints, including some of the old Citadel paints which barely had any medium left. I hated using Humbrol enamels all those years ago. The thinners used to give me bad headaches so I had to change to acrylics from a very early period in my gaming career back in the late 80s and 90s.
