Help identify colours from photos?

Post#1 » Aug 19 2017 04:39

I will have a few tyrannid infestation details on my new tau army bases and found a few references I liked I plan to base these colour themes on. I will order the colours needed and experiment asap on a few mockups. HOWEVER, having had a close to 10 year break I feel a bit out of the game and would appreciate some help in identifying possible colours from the photos. I realise some of these are very high end and can have exceptional techniques, artist mixed colours and from various manufacturers. Any help would be appreciated.

I feel like I am aiming for #1.

#1
4:47 video of poor quality from Blue Table Painting on it but no mention of colours.

What could the 3+ turquoise colours be seen on base, weapon and under belly?

#2

What could both the bright light blue to turquoise colours be on talons and hoofs?
Teclis blue/Vallejo Sky Blue (961) at base going towards sybarite green?

What could the green belly colours be? Moot green for the brightest part?
Also from Blue Table Painting.

Colors? I've had a break and did this exact 7-10 years ago but for my life can't remember the colours I used :(

Purple & turqouise? So bright and electric!

#5

Moot green or warboss I guess but which are the other hues? Feels so much brighter than #2 belly.

Many thanks for taking the time :)

You know you need to change from Photobucket? None of your pictures are displaying.

Yes, but no idea what the colors are yet. Will keep trying.

Take a look at Duncan's videos on WarhammerTV about painting the Dark Imperium Death Guard.
You might get some inspiration how to make green like that :)

I contacted Blue table painting directly offering to buy their secret, I got a free answer they did not remember but got their best guess:

Vallejo Turquoise, Lime Green, Scurf (or Scurvy) Green, and Foul Green.

Let the experiments begin :)
Got a few other ideas I'll try out.

EDIT:
All colours ordered, although unsure about the combination for some it'll be in the batch covering the entire spectrum. Only missing is the vivid electric purple and turquoise with their highlights. Next time for those!

EDIT2:
So the electric blue & imperial blue from Vallejo cover the blue I was looking for :)

EDIT3:
Found reference for the purple as well :)
Got all the answers for the references I was looking and ordered them all.
Hexed Lichen (72.715) Vallejo (air)
Alien Purple (72.776) Vallejo (air)
