    Terracotta paint replacement?

    I'm about to start my IG army and wanted to go for the 85th Cadian 'Firedrakes'. In the codex the paint scheme is "terracotta" and "red gore". I'm aware that there is a new codex coming out but i wanted to start painting them before it came.

    My problem now is that i can't find a paint on the GW site that is called terracotta. Did they remove it eniterly or just give it another name? If they removed it entirely what can i use instead to get the same feel?

    Vallejo Terracotta Equiv to Citadel Warhammer Paint on eBay, also, Scenery, Props Paint, Wargames Role-Playing, Toys Games (end time 22-Apr-09 14:38:46 BST)

    Could try the vallejo terracotta

    or perhaps coat d'arms has the colour you need since they used to make the GW paints

    Thanks for the tip but i was going to try to use only GW colours, so i'm gonna pass on that one. got some nice red paints @ my local store here in norway but i just wanted to maybe get the same feel as GW wanted when they made the codex. ^^

    Well fair enough, but coat d'arms would have made the original terracotta I think & vallejo colours are generally the spitting image of them if thats what you mean.
    However, a bit of searching found me this :

    http://cgi.ebay.com/The-Games-Worksh...3286.m63.l1177

    Theres 5 pots for you

    A note of warning however. These have likely been sitting around unattended for a long time judging by the dust.

    That pot doesnt look too healthy.

    Nothing some water wouldn't fix though I expect

    GWs Terracotta has gone completely.
    I'd suggest using Dark Flesh as a pretty good alternative.
