Have trouble finding a paint color? Out of stock and unable to find anything similar, or you want an exact match for your discontinued product – this table will help! For every known equivalent in another range, we have compiled all sorts from games workshop Citadel paints. Double-check the hex code before ordering any batch made just because they seem close enough when looking at them side by side; there may be some slight differences between manufacturers (especially those outside the USA).

  • ( 1) discontinued
  • ( 2) approximate
  • ( 3) Coat d’Arms matches the citadel from before 1992. There might be a difference. Gold is the most noticeable.
  • ( 4) Most P3 Paints do not match closely with the old GW range.
  • ( 5) GW’s new paint matches with the old. You will have to mix some of them to get close, though. If you are trying to mix GW, it is better to use Vallejo game color or coat arms for the best match.
  • (color name) after testing does not match GW color (really far)
  • ( 6) 98-99% color matches, the mass tone only
  • ( 7) 3rd-5th Edition Replicas, same 98-99% matching criteria, the mass tone only

Pick Out a Color You Like For Models

The paint comparison chart is an excellent guide for doing this. You can see many color options and how they will look in the different types of lighting available to you while still having time to carefully weigh your decision before committing to anything.

For example: If you pick out a light pink color that looks good on paper but not so much when it’s applied, then all that work was for nothing! This guide shows what colors were used in real-life situations, so there are no surprises later on down the road.
