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: BASES (New Foundation Range) Ceramite White Averland Sunset (Iyanden Darksun) Jokaero Orange (Macharius Solar Orange) Mephiston Red (Mechrite Red) Khorne Red (Scab Red) Naggaroth Night Daemonette Hide (Hormagaunt Purple) Kantor Blue (tin'ead Abyss & Regal Blue) Macragge Blue (Mordian Blue) Caledor Sky (Enchanted Blue) Stegadon scale green Incubi Darkness Caliban Green (Orkhide Shade & Dark Angels Green) Waaaagh! Flesh Castellan green (Catachan Green) Death world forest (Gretchin Green) Zandri dust Steel Legion Drab (Graveyard Earth) Bugmans Glow Ratskin Flesh (Dwarf Flesh) Mournfang brown (Calthan Brown & Bestial Brown) XV-88 Rhinox hide (Scorched Brown) Dryad bark Mechanicus standard grey (Adeptus Battlegrey) Celestra grey (Astronomican Grey) Abaddon Black (Chaos Black) Rakarth flesh (Dheneb Stone) The fang (Shadow Grey & Fenris Grey) Screamer pink (Warlock Purple) Leadblecher (metal) (Boltgun Metal) Balthasar Gold (metal) Screaming Bell (metal) Warplock bronze (metal) (Tin Bitz) LAYER (New Citadel Colour) White Scar (Skull White) Yriel Yellow (Golden Yellow) Flash gitz yellow Troll slayer orange (Blazing Orange) Fire dragon bright Evil sunz scarlet (Blood Red) Wild Rider red Wazdakka red (Red Gore) Squig Orange Xereus Purple (Liche Purple) Genestealer Purple Warpfiend Grey Slaanesh Grey Alaitoc blue Hoeth blue Altdorf guard blue (Ultramarines Blue) Calgar blue Teclis blue Lothern blue (Ice Blue) Sotek green (Hawk Turquoise) Temple guard blue Kabalite green Sybarite green Warpstone glow (Snot Green) Moot green (Scorpion Green) Warboss green (Goblin Green) Skarsnik green Loren Forest (Knarloc Green) Straken green Nurgling green (Rotting Flesh) Elysian green (Camo Green) Ogryn camo Ushabti Bone (Bleached Bone) Screaming skull Tallarn sand (Desert Yellow) Karak stone (Kommando Khaki) Cadian fleshstone Kislev Flesh Bestigor flesh Ungor flesh Skrag brown (Vermin Brown) Deathclaw brown T-a-u light Ochre Balor brown (Snakebite Leather) Zamesi brown (Bubonic Brown) Doombull brown (Dark Flesh) Tuskigor fur Gorthor Brown Baneblade Brown (Khemri Brown) Dawnstone (Codex Grey) Administratum grey (Fortress Grey) Eshin grey Dark reaper Thunderhawk blue Skavenblight dinge Stormvermin fur (Charadon Granite) Ulthuan grey Pallid wych flesh Russ grey Fenrisian grey Pink horror Emperors Children Ironbreaker (metal) (Chainmail) Runefang steel (metal) (Mithril Silver) Gehennas gold(metal) (Shining Gold) Auric Armour Gold (metal) (Burnished Gold) Hashut Copper(metal) (Dwarf Bronze) Sycorax Bronze(metal) Brass Scorpion(metal) Runelord Brass(metal) SHADES (Washes) Casandora Yellow Fuegan Orange Carroburg Crimson (Baal Red) Druchii Violet (Leviathan Purple) Drakenhof Nightshade (Asurmen Blue) Coelia greenshade Biel-tan green (Thraka Green) Athonian camoshade Seraphim Sepia (Gryphonne Sepia) Reikland fleshshade (Ogryn Flesh) Agrax earthshade (Devlan Mud) Nuln Oil (Badab Black) EDGE (Layer consistency, high highlights) - Added March/April 2013 Gauss Blaster Green Baharroth Blue Dorn Yellow Fulgrim Pink Flayed One Flesh Dechala Lilac Krieg Khaki Blue Horror Lugganath Orange DRY (Thick, Highly pigmented paints for drybrushing) Praxeti White Hexos palesun Kindleflame Lucius Lilac Etherium blue Skink blue Hellion green Underhive ash panzee Flesh Tyrant Shell Terminatus stone Longbeard grey Changling pink tin'ead Compound (Metal) Golden Griffon (Gold GLAZE (For tinting already painted colours) Lamenters yellow Waywatcher Green Guilliman blue Bloodletter TEXTURE (Instead of sanding your bases, paint & sand premixed) Mourn Mountain snow Stirland Mud Blackfire Eath Astrogranite Armageddon Dust Lustrian Undergrowth TECHNICAL (Special Use Paints/Tools) Lahmian Medium Ard coat Imperial Primer Liquid Green stuff

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...
