Paint conversion charts

The best paint conversion charts I have found are located here: https://redgrimm.github.io/paint-conversion/index.html

Example showing in the screen shot below using the example Yriel Yellow by Citidel:

  1. An equivalent or similar paint in another brand (in this case Vallejo)
  2. The original colour
  3. The mathematical difference between these 2 colours

Thanks to whoever put them up there they are great!, i hope they never disappear!​

 Everyone needs a paint mace :-)

"Mace (bludgeon), a weapon with a heavy head on a solid shaft used to bludgeon opponents" (or a tool made by Rex and used to improve efficiency when spray painting). New podcast coming soon taking about the paint Mace and other significantly more interesting content.

Another reason to magnetise your bases or base on steel washers.

See... I do paint and play something other than WWII.

This miniature featured in my top minis from 2018 as discussed in this podcast. In fact its not from 2018 at all it was released as the special edition miniature with the Bolt Action V2 German army book (2016?) as shown here. But I received it in 2018 so that good enough for me.

I'm showing it here because:

  1. Its great mini
  2. It demonstrates how I prime (black first then a zenithal grey primer dusting over the top) check thiis podcast for the "why" of it
  3. It demonstrates how I base, at least the starting point in the process, which we will cover in a future podcast and possibly a how to guide
  4. It proves I have done something recently
  5. And lastly, it *really* is great mini

Beware Vallejo paint colours, just one example….

"Nearly done, just do one final highlight with Green Grey (or was that Grey Green)… ill just do a quick search that should illuminate things?..." See image below...

Moral of the story, make good records of what you used or it's all going to go horribly, horribly wrong. Make it part of your painting workflow.
