    A Shadowy Figure's Ghastly Shade

    Sampled from the Ghastly Gibus

       I copied the TF2 wiki picture of the Heavy wearing a gibus, put it in MS paint, marked a square inside the Gibus, pressed ctrl and minus until it had been summed up into a single pixel, and then I pressed ctrl and plus until the pixel was large enough to show the color that I wanted. SCIENCE!   
    Looks like After Eight to me.

    After Eight has a green tint to it for god knows what reason. Trust me, it's notably different.

    Another idea (sorry for not having the exact colors again):
    "The paint of steel"
    Sampled from the Fists of Steel.

    Added to the OP. Really looks good!

    Now, who can we find to do some paint tests on the Wiki Cap? And by that, I mean, the paints in this thread.

    VTFEdit doesn't work on my computer, that is why I'm asking others to do it. Plus, the tutorial is confusing for someone like me.

    Open model viewer, load player, load hat. Edit the .vmt (It's a text file not a texture) of the Wiki Cap with the RGB color you want, press F5, take screenshot, edit, upload and post it here. Isn't that hard.

    Edit: What am I saying you don't need to edit textures. Just edit a text file with 3 numbers.

    Shit, this is a pretty cool thread idea. I gotta open up Modelviewer and try some of these on hats I like sometime.

    Also, we need a Fancy-Fedora team color~

    Finally! Updated the OP to include paint previews on the Wiki Cap!

    Also, A Shadowy Figure's Ghastly Shade seems a bit brown-ish for some reason.

    Perhaps I should try and grab a darker sample from the gibus, because it looks way too much like radigan conagher brown.

    Oh and... for irony's sake, could we try and grab a sample of black from the wiki cap ?

    Well, of course. That is why they are a Neon Nightmare.

    I'll try your Wiki Cap idea out.

    Don't name it after the wiki cap though, since I think that black color is rather common.

    When are you going to do that? You know, so I could know when you exit TF2 and such.

    Simski you should just be taking the $colourtint_base from the Gibus VMT, not sampling it from a render using MSpaint. Very inaccurate and will be tinted wrong due to lightwarps and non-flat lighting.

    I'm using MSpaint, do I seem like a very technical person to you ?

    Does anyone have a paint idea that makes Lime look less eye-hurting?

    And, does anyone want to see these paints on certain hats?

    A lot better yes

    Edited:

    How would the brigade helmet, respectless rubber glove, foster's facade, and the hazmat look in a burning desire for black?

    Edited:

    How would the backbiter's billycock, vintage tyrolean, master's yellow belt, and ye olde baker boy... look with A Shadowy Figure?
