Because it seems the bastards have discontinued it. It's a key part of my
ork flesh formula (dark angels green drybrushed with goblin green then
washed with green ink) so I have to find a replacement that will give
similar results. Any thoughts on how I can fix this?

What Myr said, but also; call up local stores and GWMO, ask if they
have any left. You might be able to buy up a few extra pots while
they're still available.

Try any serious 'art supply' store. There are several companies
that make colored ink. You can probably find one or more on-line with a
bit of searching.

The Cote d'Arms stuff is identical to the old line of GW paints, which
was superior to the current line of paints. The Renaissance Ink stuff
comes highly recommended by Doctor Faust; www.paintingclinic.com

Also, IIRC Jen Haley's site recommends it;

Thanks for all the responses. I'll get to my local art supply store ASAP.
I've also found that Reaper Pro Paints carries two green inks, one that
looks to be about right and one that looks to be more akin to the current GW
Dark Green Ink. Can anyone reccomend/advise against this brand? Secondly,
the Coat d'Arms Green Ink is also akin to the current Dark Green Ink,
correct? (I can only judge by color swatches on the computer). Lastly,
Rennaisaince ink offers a Green Ink Wash, can anyone comment on it's color
and/or quality?

I mostly use Windsor and Newton inks. I highly recommend them. From
memory the W&N colour is Apple Green, or maybe it’s a little lighter but
works just as well.

I second the use of Windsor and Newton paints. Very good stuff, if a little
difficult for me personally to acquire... :(

Just thought I'd chime in here as well, my local art supplier stocks a host
of W&N inks, here's their link http://www.millers-art.co.uk/acatalog/ .

Mr Whoseywhatsit* from Rennaisance posts here from time to time and has
never been a twat of any description, so can be assumed to have the RGMW
seal of approval. http://www.renaissanceink.net/ if you don't know
already.

I know that but given that they're English and you can get them everywhere
in NZ, you should be able to get them anywhere that sells stationery in the
UK. I'm sure that even Phil can them in the tiny village of Lesser
Snivling or where ever it is he lives.

Believe me, I've tried...I've had just about every kind of response
possible, from a snobbish "Don't stock 'em" style response from small
independant art/craft stores, to a drooling "Duh, nevuh urrd of 'um"
response from the spotty kid and his boss in the local department store's
art dept.
Yes, the manufacturer's in the UK, but if no-one locally stocks 'em, I'm
still buggered :(

That's odd - I thought buggery typically resulted in 'cream'.

Not when you're using a genuine RGMW studded condom. It results in
bleeding.
