I bought a hoard of pots of the old washes, especially Ogryn Flesh, Devlan Mud, and Gryphonne Sepia, all of which are nigh-irreplaceable to me. God knows what I'll do when the current supply runs out a few years down the road  :'(

I use them to do most of my skin painting (by careful layering of thin glazes) and all my techniques for that revolve around those old GW washes, especially their colour and consistency.

The Sepia does indeed have a critical yellow component and Devlan Mud is a bit of a dirty brown.

I read somewhere that the Army Painter washes are from the same factory and use the same "recipe" as the old GW washes - Dark tone (Badab Black), Strong tone (Devlan Mud), Light tone (Gryphonne Sepia). Can anyone confirm of deny this or even simply that they are an acceptable substitute?

I repeat, I use inks (Army Painter 'Strong Tone' and 'Dark Tone') plus Vallejo's brown and black glazes to make a more than acceptable substitute for the old Devlan Mud. I advise anyone to give it a go.

Do you go 50/50 on the Vallejo?

Ah, now you've got me. I just sort of muck about with it until it looks right. Less glaze than ink though, maybe about 20%? ish?

I've posted this link before, but it's worth mentioning again

http://www.awesomepaintjob.com/index.cfm/resources.recipes

has instructions for making custom washes

I haven't tried this yet myself (an admission which didn't end up too well last time ;D), so no guarantees

Ah OK, I knew about the one at Rokin (?) street, but according to GWs website there are 2 (west and south), so I was wondering which one it was. They always had some nice stuff on display, I am hoping they'll reopen somewhere soon.
