Old Citadel Paint Chart

Hi All,

I've been playing a lot over the past few weeks with some old Terminators to try and get that 'old-school' bright and colourful feel - I'm having trouble however in figuring out what paints to use to replace the now old and lost citadel range from the early 90's (and mentioned in my old 90's 'eavy Metal' painting guides). Is there a decent paint chart anywhere that lists the old citadel paints and there modern equivalents - modern citadel paints or otherwise?

After much messing about I've finally painted my 1st Edition SH Terminators in Humbrol no #19. It's not a bad match other than being gloss (which I should be able to sort out).

I may not be good but I'm slow!
