Hey everyone,

GW just announced their new revamped paint range today, so I figure I'd put together a pinned topic for a quick reference on what the new paints are, and how they correspond to the about-to-be-old range.

It seems that they've broken the range into more subgroups than what are already here. Currently we have Foundation Paints, Citadel Color and Citadel Washes. The new subgroups are Base, Layer, Shade, Dry, Glaze, and Technical. In December 2013, they released a limited edition 9 paint "Edge" set, which as of March 2013 are now part of the new line and listed below, and are available individually.

Bases are essentially the Foundations, but expanded and modified, and includes the black colour for the range.

Here's a straight list. Old paint names are in brackets:

I just got this link of suggested colour combinations from gw itself. It's a link directly into their catalogue, which I rarely do, but I think it interesting.

I'm not sure how this topic ended up getting closed. At any rate, I posted the comparison chart as provided by GW themselves. However, as some of you may have already learned, some of the paints are waaaay off in terms of tonal similarities. I'd suggest adding your own thoughts as to what might be a better match.

For example: Charadon Granite is matched up with Stormvermin Fur. This isn't even close, as Charadon Granite is a foundation paint that is a very dark greenish grey, while Stormvermin Fur is a very light greenish grey, and is a layer. They're in the same tonal family, I suppose, but if you're looking for a Charadon Granite replacement, you may be looking at mixing some of the base paints... perhaps Dryad Bark with Abaddon Black and Deathworld Forest.

Don't get me wrong, I really like the new paints. I think the new paints are excellent and will improve everyone's quality of painting, but the conversion chart can only be an approximation as the paints have been reformulated to behave and interact with each other in order to get those good results.

Super happy that something like this is available here because the new range is kinda intimidating. Espacially for me since I'm only an average skill painter.

Believe it or not, the new paint range is geared more to people with beginner or intermediate skill levels. I've found that you get very good results without having to blend/mix... While that option is still there, and I have done so with the new paints, there is much to be said for developing consistent paint schemes.

I need to amend this list, as it seems that the new Edge paints are now officially part of the full range. I originally understood the edge paints to be basically the same pigment tones as some of the Dry Compound range, simply in a layer format, but that is not exactly true.

In essence, these are supposed to be the lightest point for highlighting certain colours, and they are very good for handling those absolute top highlights. That having been said, you may note that there is no super-highlight for a bone colour, for example. It may seem silly to point it out, but that is what White Scar is for.

Here is a list:

Gauss Blaster Green
Baharroth Blue
Dorn Yellow
Fulgrim Pink
Flayed One Flesh
Dechala Lilac
Krieg Khaki
Blue Horror
Lugganath Orange

Most of the colours should be obvious. Flayed One Flesh is the top highlight on most light skin tones whether you've gone the Ratskin Flesh base or the Bugman's Glow route... but all of these presume you've already used the brightest highlight in the Layer range already.

I should also note that Lugganath orange is the top highlight for reds... it may be obvious, but worthwhile pointing out. As previously suggested, if you find the highlights too stark, the glazes are good at tying all the colours together.

The difference between Baharroth Blue and Blue Horror is that Baharroth is more of a teal (greenish-blue) tone, where Blue Horror is similar in pigment to the Etherium Blue dry compound.

Anyway, hope you find this helpful. I'm still experimenting with these myself...
