Citadel Paint Range Comparison

The new Citadel paint range introduced over 100 new paints and new names.  They are new formula (using liquid pigments rather than solid) and intended to minimise the amount of mixing required.  Games Workshop released a colour match guide that if I’m honest is rubbish.  Some of the new paints are identical in colour to old ones but many are not.  To this end, I’m compiling a chart containing my own observations of the colours that are out.  As time goes on, I’ll fill more and more out.
