Do the paint colors used in painting Citadel minis have their own paint codes?

What do you mean by paint codes?

Are you looking for the P.M.S. codes??
Or the code that lets you order them from GW???

Yeah, the PMS code, or some widely-used real-life equivalent.

I don't think so...

PMS codes are used in graphics packages and the like, right? Whereas Citadel colours are 'real life' pigments... Sometimes different batches even vary slightly...

You could try approximating codes from a chart like this (http://www.easymake.com.au/images/PMS%20Color%20Chart.pdf) I guess...

if you are looking for approximations into other paint sets, this is a good reference.




also, if any mod thinks this link shouldn't be posted, feel free to remove it.

no I have not found the PMS codes for them. But if you do let me know what they are, I have wanted them for a long time.

The biggest problem is figuring out the suspension to pigment equivalent.
