Paints, Color Equivalence Charts, and Mixing your own Citadel Colors

Almost as messy as my paints.  OK, not really.  I'm way too OCD organized to ever have paints looking like this.
Hey everybody, Chaoshead here again with a quick post about painting.  No, I'm not going to go over which brand is best, that dead horse has been beaten so much it's not even recognizable any more.  What I will be covering is a number of equivalency charts that let you find similar colors in different paint ranges/brands, and then I will share a very useful post that will show you how to create any Citadel paint color (even some of the discontinued ones) with only 5 colors of paint.  Intrigued?  Good.  See you after the jump.

Tutorial: Swappable weapons without using magnets - Tyranid Termagant edition.

Hello and welcome to another tutorial by Chaosheade.  In this tutorial I will show you how to model the humble Termagant so that you can swap the weapons between the standard fleshborer and the much more shooty devourer and the best part is we will not need a single magnet.  Not a single one.  Any Tyranid player can tell you that if you play Nids you will probably end up with a TON of termagants especially if you plan on using Tervigons at any point.  Instead of using up your precious stock of magnets or ordering different size magnets just so you can magnetize smaller bits, we will be using the humble paper clip.  Using this tutorial, 10 cents worth of paper clips can do the work of $10 worth of magnets.  Learn more after the jump.
