Many of my old GW paints are running low and hate the new GW pots so looking to move over to Coat d range.

They have 3 main ranges, fantasy, military and WW2.

I was going to order each range but was wondering if there is any overlap in their colours, e.g blood angel red is the same as British scarlet.

They have some similar colours, some very similar, but I do not think they have duplicate ones.

As AB said, there are no duplicates with different names.

The fantasy range and the Military range both contain 101-105 but that is the only duplication across the ranges.

You can buy all 150 paints in one deal.

I stock them and just looked over my shoulder!
That and I have had people ask me before.

On the same note, happy to advise if specific colours are similar.

If I remember correctly Cote D Arms made the original Citadel paints so if your GW paints are old enough they will be a close match.

Not exactly. As I understand it, GW sold the Citadel range of paints, but when they moved to a different supplier, Coat D'Arms took over the original paints.
