Re: Citadel Foundation Conversion Table

Hi,

Army Painter, Citadel Base and Citadel Layer equivalents are completed.
Next up is Instar Vintage.
I acquired the Vallejo 72172 Game Color case from Amazon today and it will be delivered tomorrow, so I guess that range are being added after the Instar range.
I noticed that 72172 set is missing 12 colours 72.095->72.106 and the 16 Extra Opaque paints, that will have to purchase.
I’m in the process of creating swatches for the VGC set.
Kind Regards
Kalle

Re: Citadel Foundation Conversion Table

DO any of the "coverted" colours have the same coverage properties as the foundation paints? Or are you just talking colour matching?

Re: Citadel Foundation Conversion Table

Hi ramshackle_curtis,

These are just colour matchings. The Foundation paints have a really good coverage, that maybe only the Citadel Base paints can match of the ones I have measured.

By creating swatches for all ranges, I get to see how well the paints I test cover the underlying cardboard surface.

Re: Citadel Foundation Conversion Table

Hi ,

Next up will most likely be the Instar Alpha line and after that Vallejo Model Color line.

I'm still working on creating completely opaque paint swatches on the side, this will probably not affect the deltaE 2000 values to much but it will help me with predict the correct mixing ratios to get the target color.
Creating completely opaque paint swatches demands a lot of layers to not let any light through especially for red, yellow and white colours.

Kind Regards
Kalle

Re: Citadel Foundation 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.
