"Official" Paint Index

This thread is to be used to index any and all store bought paints that match official Heroscape colors. If you find a brand of paint or have a formula using paint to make a color then please psot it here and I will update the first post as often as possible.

Why would we need this???

Well we "don't", but I am guessing there are probably others like me who are painting other figs (MageKnight etc) to fit in w/ Scape. This idea came to me because I want to repaint all the Samurai sculpts into the 3 current color schemes so I have expanded units of each. This is also helpful for making terrain.

If you would like to add to this thread please post the following information.

1-Brand of Paint
2-Color
3-Where you bought it.
4-Cost
5-Mixing formula if needed (i.e. 1 oz of Apple Barrel Brick Red + 1 oz of Folk Art Cobalt Blue)

I hope everyone finds some use in this thread.

TERRAIN
Swamp Tiles Folk Art-Olive Green-Michael's- around $1 small bottle (Girshnakh)
Swamp Water Apple Barrell-English Ivy-Michael's-69 cents (LiefKicker)

Good idea


I have always painted with Games Workshop paints, expensive stuff, but it last forever. I still have a few bottles from highschool and still use them, that was back in 95! I just have to add a few drops of water into them and they work fine.

From the ones I can remember that I have painted and came out very close to the original paint colors.

Games workshop about $3-$4 for a small pot

Shadow Grey It matches the grey on the EOV's and Master Woo's tunic.


Rotting flesh Very close match to the zombies color

Scab red Red spots on the zombies again very close match

Blood red Blood stains on the zombies

Mithiril silver plus Black ink wash gives the metalic silver look from most of the figures ( swords , armor ect..)

Bone yellow plus Flesh wash gives the marrow faded look

Boltgun metal gives the darker metalic color of the non silver armor


Also, when you are going to varnish, or clear coat your minis, dont ruin them like I did using a glossy finish. They stick out from the other heroscape figures and dont blend in well. Make sure you use a clear non glossy coat.

Folk Art Metallic Copper - Walmart : Copper color of Gladitron's Swords/Details but with more metallic (sparkle) look.

Anyone know a good flesh tone to use? I want to repaint some warriors and need a good fleshdtone to start with. (I need to see if my dried up Citadel paint will rehydrate...)

This is a very good idea, I have some dead ringer Omnicron Sniper colors I will get for you later. BTW, just a thought but if this was set up in order of waves or something that would eb really cool and we could just kind of fill in the blanks as we go. Nice idea Onacarna.

Going to actually do it alphabetically but was waiting for some more input first.

Something that might also be good is a chart for matching the Apple Barrel and cheaper paints up to the Citadel/Hobby ones.

That would mean that I would have to buy both to compare them now wouldn't it?
