I want to paint my Adeptus Titanicus Legio Solaria using the original 1980s colour scheme. I found the recipe for the green in an old White Dwarf but I need to source some 1980s round pot citadel green ink and sunburst yellow (I’d like to get it as close as possible with the same paints rather than modern versions). I’d like to start painting them ASAP as I have a lot of time off work with a broken wrist. Long shot but can any of you help please? Could paypal or trade for some Epic or AT bits.

They were a match for the 2nd edition hexagon paints weren't they? Even if not I don't know if I'd trust a colour match for a 30 year old paint, I'd rather find an original as below.

Someone elsewhere suggested the "Nostalgia 88" paint range, which are modern colour matches of the original 80s GW colours. I might well try these instead if I don't find any original ones https://www.warcolours.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=76&product_id=146

You're going to run into variation even amongst the old GW pots, they were mixed by eye then and now (CdA).

I seem in to be in luck - someone's offering to sell me an unopened 80s green ink :) Hopefully one pot will be enough to do 15 or so AT titans.
