Well done my good man. Excellent surf results. Now I finally have a use for the old GW paints lying around (I'm a Vallejo man myself).

You are welcome guys Very Happy

Btw; The "recipe" for Dark Flesh and Scab Red is the same(this would be a mistake?), but the colour you actually get is Dark Flesh Wink
I don't know if there is any more mistakes, but as far as I can see there is none Razz

Yeah, I read that in the forum on there. However, I'm glad it's Dark Flesh since that's one of my most used paints. thumbsup

This is genius, definitely going to try this out if i ever get any the three primary colors... mine are dried out due to the previous bottle style Very Happy

The funny thing is a still have a goblin green from 1995 that is usable! The wider, screw top lids from several years ago that dry out in a month or so.

The proof!

Judging from a lot of peoples experience, the colours in the very old pots like that one above seems to stay usable way longer than that in their successor pots (with the black, screw top lids). Strange.

Oh, I didn't read the comments on there - I'm currently painting two small ruins, and I thought it would look good with the outer walls to be "Scab Red", so I tried to mix the colour(I do not use GW colours for terrain tough - That would be waaaay too expensive) and well... It turned out Dark Flesh Rolling Eyes

I took about a dozen of the old pots (with screw tops) back and complained that they dried out and was lucky enough to get them replaced Razz

I also have some of the pots from '95 and they are perfectly fine...

And that is a awesome find... tho im good on the mixing front as I lucky enough to receive the Mega Paint Set (every color at the time) as a gift about 5 years ago... but when I run out of colors I know have the mixing guide Very Happy
