User BARCA over on Ordo Fanaticus Forum has an Excellent Post on Color Conversion for the various TY/FoW/Vallejo paint colors.

Here's the listing for Brits, but other nations are there as well:

Team Yankee British Paint Set (TYP193)


= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Team-Yankee (TYP) = Colours of War (FWP) = Vallejo Model Color

# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #

TYP348 Chieftain Green = FWP348 Firefly Green = 894 Russian Uniform

TYP363 DPM Sand = FWP363 Crusader Sand = 847 Dark Sand

TYP321 Cobra Drab = FWP321 Sherman Drab = 887 Brown Violet

TYP302 Worn Rubber = FWP302 Worn Rubber = 862 Black Grey

TYP492 Ordinance Shade = FWP492 Manstein Shade = 201 Black Shade

***TYP346 Maverick Khaki = FWP346 Afrika Green = 881 Yellow Green

TYP323 Leather Brown = FWP323 Boot Brown = 872 Chocolate Brown

TYP304 Harrier Grey = FWP304 Bunker Grey = 836 London Grey

TYP326 Comrade Khaki = FWP326 Comrade Khaki = 880 Khaki Grey or 879 Green Brown

***Note: in the American paint set, "Maverick Khaki" is listed as code "TYP344" and compatible with FWP344 Jager Green = 833 German Camo Bright Green

The current list is available at the link I posted above: http://www.ordofanaticus.com/index.php?/topic/29693-team-yankee-your-old-paint-sets-are-not-obsolete/

Interestingly, they link back to WWPD for the answer:

Team Yankee Soviet Paint Set (TYP191)

http://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=4953

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Team-Yankee (TYP) = Colours of War (FWP) = Vallejo Model Color

# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #

TYP350 Soviet Green (1)* = FWP348 Firefly Green = 894 Russian Uniform

TYP350 Soviet Green (2)* = FWP327 Military Khaki = 988 Khaki

TYP350 Soviet Green (3)* = <none> = 857 Golden Olive


TYP323 Leather Brown = FWP323 Boot Brown = 872 Chocolate Brown

TYP352 Crocodile Yellow = FWP362 Sicily Yellow = 914 Green Ochre

TYP492 Ordinance Shade = FWP492 Manstein Shade = 201 Black Shade

TYP326 Comrade Khaki = FWP326 Comrade Khaki = 880 Khaki Grey or 879 Green Brown

TYP402 Hind Blue = ? = 961 Sky Blue

TYP481 Rocket Steel = FWP481 Cold Steel = 865 Oily Steel

*Soviet Green(1), (2) and (3) is problematic. A close match for several, but not an exact match for any.

I embraced this quote: Bcorpswriter on viewtopic.php?t=2531&p=24035 'Re: What would be considered an "accurate" Soviet green?'

"Short answer: anything. The Soviets produced millions of combat vehicles in umpteen different factories scattered across one of the largest continuous land masses in the world. They were not all using the same paint pot, no reason you should either. I currently have Russian stuff painted in 6 different shades ranging from pale light green up to very dark olive drab, not to mention the US and British lend lease stuff. Pick a color that makes you feel good and go with it."

Okay, that helped me. I'm still going through my paint collection to find what shades I'm missing.

One Issue: BF has painted their stuff using their paints.. sometimes as an approximation. Example: The Harrier in the British book is WAY TOO LIGHT COLOURED bcs they are using their own paints. It should be Luftwaffe Camo Dark Green and Field Blue not the colours they used, and the period pictures in Europe back this up.

So yeah, while its nice to convert their colours, their colours could be wrong, as they are trying to match using their colours, ofc. Im a plane-nerd not a tank nerd, so I have no idea how close the vehicle colours are.. :)
