Colours of War: Great War Painting Guides

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.99

Like many Wargamers, painting is one of my favorite parts of the hobby but I'm constantly jumping between projects to keep myself motivated. Like most, I constantly forget what colours I’ve used on miniatures over the years, did I paint those Russians Khaki or Khaki Grey…. Or was it something else entirely? So I started writing all the colours down in a word doc for ease of access and what you will see over the next pages is what this small project snow balled into. You'll see how a few scattered notes suddenly spiraled into 30 different colour charts. Hours upon hours of research have went into this project, I have contacted many experts on the subject matter to provide the best colour matches possible. I hope you all find this as useful as myself. Thanks for looking!

Any plans on adding comparisons/equivalences with Army Painter or Games Workshop paints?

To be honest, not really. Most of colours really dont have an equivalent. I have tried to pick the most accurate colours available.

Thanks again for your interest!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
