Hey guys. I noticed a few years ago that Dark Angels Green was a little bit different to Caliban Green when it was replaced. After some googling I found out that Instar had a great line of repo paints. I decided to do a bit of a project to figure out what green worked for me and I thought that my fellow Dark Angel players might be interested in the results.

Dark Angels green was always one of my favorite paints because of how it looked watered down as a glaze. You can't do that with Caliburn Green because its a base.

 

I hopefully picked up Contrast Dark Angels Green and it doesn't work, but Contrast Warp Lightning looks a lot like thinned old Dark Angels green.

 

I assume Coat d'arm fantasy range Angel Green is literally 90s Dark Angels Green but never got around to ordering any to check.

After I wrote up the article, I had a lot of people suggesting Angel Green. I totally missed that when I was planning the test. :( 

 

That said I think instar would work as a glaze if you thinned it with a good medium.
