Vallejo 875 Beige Brown Alternative

Posted by Kekso on 31 Mar 2018, 10:14

Hi guys,
I'm looking for alternative for Vallejo Model Color Beige Brown (875). I don't want to cancel my order because of 1 bottle of paint so I'm open for any suggestions (Army Painter, Citadel, Game Color, Panzer Aces, etc.). It doesn't need to be exact match. Last time I ordered Vallejo Flat Brown - it seemed on the screen as good alternative but their hues are far apart IRL. Google didn't offer good solutions and I can't trust color representation from the PC screen.

Why cancel the order? Is your supplier all out of the beige brown?

In my experience, German Camo Medium Brown (826) is pretty close.

Sorry, but that's impractical solution for me. That's the one of paints I use a lot.
For horses and wooden part of muskets. Mixing it all the time isn't something I want to do a lot.

Yes, he's out.
