Re: Citadel Classic Conversion Table

Hi all,

I have updated the table with the Citadel Classic paints I have gotten hold of. I hope you find it useful :-)
I will update the table whenever I get hold of the paints I miss.

I have some of the inks and metallics too, but I don't know if they are interesting to you.

Kind Regards
Kalle

Re: Citadel Classic Conversion Table

Hi all,

A Creature Paint Set is on its way to me, this means that I will have those added to the table.
In the meantime I will focus on getting Instar Alpha paint swatches finished so these can be added to the equivalents.

Kind Regards
Kalle

Re: Citadel Classic Conversion Table

Hi Twisted Moon,
Thanks mate :-)
It is a little bit tedious, but also fun.
Especially the yellows are a pain to get completely opaque. The Bad Moon Yellow isn’t completely opaque yet and the swatch is about 2.5-3mm thick :-(
This is the same challenge in all paint ranges.
Weakest pigment ranking:
1. Yellow
2. Orange, because of the mix of yellow and red.
3. White
4. Red
5. Green
6, Blue
7. Black
I haven’t tried out Skull White yet, but I guess it’s up around position of yellow but I could be wrong ;-)

Kind Regard
Kalle

Re: Citadel Classic Conversion Table

Hi,

I have added the Instar Alpha range to the conversion table. Instar will release seven more paints for this range and when I get hold of them, I will update the Instar Alpha conversions.

Kind Regards
Kalle
