Been looking at the Vallejo pigment range and the color choices are a bit confusing,can anyone color match them with say Mig pigments.
i'm looking for Russian earth/European earth/dust & rust.

There is an app called Hobby Color Converter, got it from Google play, that lists colors and their equivalents by brand. Constantly updated.

Mud from two places in the same field can and will look different so I wouldn't be too worried about exact conversions tbh. Experiment with mixing yourself e.g for the Russian earth mix umber (both Raw & Burnt) with some natural sienna and maybe a hint of grey.
For the European earth/dust start with the sienna and and some brown tones
The mark 1 eyeball is greatly under-rated IMHO

Thanks for your views,I shall give that app a try.
I can almost buy 2 bottles of Vallejo for the same price of 1 Mig ammo stuff.
Vallejo cost around 2.79 Mig ammo is around 4.50

Thanks both

Ammo of Mig is about 50 cents a bottle more than Vallejo and AK is 10 cents more than Vallejo at Scalehobbist.com.
