Unfortunately the Battle Front site has the new paints. The tutorial used to list the old regular Vallejo colors. Below is the original tutorial colors. Where two colors are listed the first was the suggested Battle Front color and the second was my suggested color.

Trousers, Tunic, Side Cap: 921 English Uniform
Helmet: 887 Brown Violet
Boots, Belts, Ammo Pouches: 872 Chocolate Brown
alternate: 984 Flat Brown
Bread Bag, SMG Pouch: 988 Khaki
alternate: 914 Green Ochre
Bayonet Scabbard: Black

Collar Tabs:
Infantry Grass Green: 850 Medium Olive
Armored & Cavalry Cornflower Blue: 901 Pastel Blue
Artillery Red: Red
Engineer Bluegreen/Steel Green: 50/50 mix of 925 Blue and 850 Medium Olive

Base vehicle color 890 Reflective Green

Hope this helps
