Paint comparison table

As promised, here's the very WIP table of paint comparisons. As time goes on I'll update this as I work out the matches and update the colour swatches a bit. The table also does not currently contain the complete VMC, VGC or current GW ranges. I've also not, yet, added any swatches for metallics yet as those will never be accurate and I'd prefer someone with personal experience to match those up.

One thing to keep in mind is that these matches are not perfect. The Foundry matches are based upon the colour swatches on the website which, I know, is a dangerous thing to do, especially when in some cases I know these aren't right. A good example of this are the various flesh tones between Foundry Shade 119A and Expert Flesh 127F. 

This is a best guess starting point and is better than I could currently find.

If you spot anything wrong with this, or you think some other colours are better matches, just shout.

In other, related fun and games, Loki has been piecing together a selection of painting triads that he uses on a regular basis. I highly recommend having a look at these:
