So I've never painted my mini's, but in preparation of Legends I think it might be fun to start.

The new Army Painter SDE Starter set was announced and seems a good deal, but I'm curious about the paints/paint names. The paint names in the set are all obviously SDE themed, but are they actually custom colors? Or just renamed of current colors (my expectation).

Ie. If I run out of Celestia Blue, do I have to buy another starter set to get more, or can I pick up Crystal Blue as Celestia Blue is actually just Crystal Blue with a custom label?

I know the set isn't out yet, but hoping someone may know from experience in previous sets.

Edit:
Army Painter staff were kind enough to pass along to me the equivalent paints in there line:
Starfire Red (Pure Red)
Fireflow Yellow (Daemonic Yellow)
Deeproot Brown (Dirt Spatter)
Frostbyte White (Matt White)
Midnight Blade Black (Matt Black)
Celestia Blue (Viking Blue)
Goddess Silver (Plate Mail Metal)
Kodoma Green (Greenskin)
Glauerdoom Shade (Dark Tone Ink)
Claw Tribe Flesh (Barbarian Flesh)

Hard to say without the set in hand, but in previous releases, like with The Others: 7 Sins and Zombicide, Army painter told you which paints were custom, the rest were just relabels.

So if nothing is pointed out as unique, it may be safe to assume its just a relabeling, however, until I have the physical set I cant guarantee that

If this is a charity army, what are the details on the raffle?

dsdrew: Thanks for the info there. Planning to pick this up and get some practice while waiting for 2.0/Legends.

So I picked up the set and have been having a blast with it. Really glad I took the plunge.

If you've never painted mini's before, that was my situation, seems to be enough to get you going. I painted up the included Barbarian and have have been painting all sorts of my other mini's just blending the colours included. I edited the first post to include the equivalency guide Army Painter provided, but for completeness if anyone needs here it is:

SDE Colour / AP Colour
Starfire Red (Pure Red)
Fireflow Yellow (Daemonic Yellow)
Deeproot Brown (Dirt Spatter)
Frostbyte White (Matt White)
Midnight Blade Black (Matt Black)
Celestia Blue (Viking Blue)
Goddess Silver (Plate Mail Metal)
Kodoma Green (Greenskin)
Glauerdoom Shade (Dark Tone Ink)
Claw Tribe Flesh (Barbarian Flesh)
