Citadel Paints & German WWII Colors
Posted 27 October 2010 - 10:25 PM
The specific colors I'm wondering about are RLM 66, RLM 02, Panzer Gray, and the German tri-colour armour scheme.

I have not seen any such mixing charts and the limited exposure I have had with Citagel paints leads me to believe there aren't going to be any direct matches. Since the Citadel range is directed towards war gamers I suspect there probably hasn't been enough use of them by aircraft modelers to generate interest to make mixing charts. I have learned that the shelf life of the Citadel paints I have purchased is rather short once the little container has been opened for for the first time. Apparently the seal isnt all that good when the lid is snapped down because mine dried out in about 12 months or so.

Yep, that's been my experience as well. Had bottles of Mithril Silver that lasted several years.

Color match 1.0
It's not great, but it's something.
To answer your question though, I have used Rotting Flesh for RLM02, and Codex Grey for RLM66 and Panzer Grey (add some Chaos Black for taste ) Haven't used Citadel for the tri-color scheme......yet.

I'm using Adeptus Battlegrey plus some black for RLM 66.
For the tri-colour scheme, Desert Yellow lightened with white, Catachan Green darkened with black, and Scorched Brown seem to be good matches.

I haven't seen a chart for WW2 colors, but it does seem to have a fair bit of use with WW1 builders which surprised me, so there might be something out there.
