(*) discontinued,
(**) approximate,
(***) coat d'arms match the OLD citadel colours so there might be some difference. Shining gold has the most
noticeable difference,
(****) P3 Paints did not really match very closely with the old GW range, but a detailed explanation of each paint
can be found here: http://www.brushthralls.com/pre-painting-prep/color-theory-10p3.html
(*****) GW's new range matches with the old range are the matches claimed by GW. However, many of the paints
do not match very closely at all and some mixing will be required to get close to the original colours. If you are
trying to match old GW with new GW, you'd be better just getting Vallejo game color or coat d'arms for the closest
match )
(color name) after testing does not match GW color (really far)
