Paint colour problem: Vallejo Russian Green

I use Vallejo model color acrylic russian green to paint my 28mm neo-soviet figures and vehicles, so I was running low and ordered some more and got something a lot different in my opinion called cam.olive green from vallejo with the same numbers as the russian green.I took some pictures to show the difference of colour but the similarity in numbers, I have gone through friends and gotten what they had but what I am asking is if you see any russian green in your travels(it has to say it on the bottle) could you message me with a comment with a web address so I can purchase them(only need about 3 or 4 to finish project and future touching up due to clumsy wargamers).I have tried to locate some myself but no luck yet and would be grateful if somebody out there still had it in stock or found some. Thanks.

Both bottles say 70894 and 096.

The cam.olive green does say panzer series.


  1. Angry, they are the same paint. Panzer colour are just re-named but the product number is the same. It's very weird they are different colours. Have you tried painting with the new bottle? It might turn out the same once you have shook it up a bit. Try Maelstrom Games in the UK for re-supply. They have the full vallejo range with free postage. Real bad luck there.

  2. I got several pots of it and this is the colour it has become,I will try maelstrom but speak to them first so it says russian green.

  3. They defiantly look completely different colours in the bottle, how odd???

  4. I've not used this colour before but I've been using Vallejo for years and nver had a problem with 'colour creep'.... maybe you've discovered a new thing for wargamers to moan about (lol).

  5. IIRC Russian Uniform Green is now 70-924, I believe they renumbered some of their colors back a couple years ago as they introduced some additional colors to the Model Color line.

  6. Russian Uniform is 924, but Russian Green (Tank Colour) is 894. I just had a look at my bottle and it looks pretty much the same colour as Angry's original bottle.

  7. Hey Angry, do you ever use The War Store ( They are fast, and have a small discount on vallejo paints.

    Anyway, about 5 months ago, I ordered Russian Green and got the same bottle you mentioned above. I called them, and had them send me the 'correct' bottle, and they did.

    That being said, I dont see it (Russian Green) on their website any more. You might want to give them a call - here is the contact info

  8. Now that's just pesky! SOunds like the crossover between their different ranges, increase in colours and thus a change in numbers or duplicate number/different range. How annoying, good luck.
