Default Vallejo Scar Red=/= GW Scab Red? Mislabeled or false advertising?

Well this was a heartbreaking day. I pop open my new bottle of Vallejo Scar Red (supposedly the same colour as GW Scab Red) and immediately notice 2 things

1) It is most definately of superior quality to GW paint. Better coverage and dries smoother. Unfortunately this just made #2 harder to bear

2) It's not the same as Scab Red! This paint is much closer to Red Gore than anything! Perhaps even a lil brighter even

Now I don't know if the Vallejo Scar Red is supposed to be like this, or if I just got a mis-labelled bottle. So i was wondering if anyone had any experience with this particular colour and whether theirs had the same problem

i've personally been using some of the vallejo model colour range, and what i'd recommend if you can get it is vallejo black red. a little deeper and flatter than scab red, and all round a much nicer colour.

oh, and don't be fooled: not all vallejo colours are better. for instance, i won't touch vallejo greys ever again. they just go chalky all the time, and its near impossible to get a neat highlight

I'm happy with my London Grey (vallejo) for my Grey Knights.

i've been using model colour dark grey and trying to highlight with neutral grey

still haven't done it successfully, without using an extender medium so i can wet-blend. actually, to tell the truth, it only really seems to go to the shitter when i use the neutral grey. the dark grey seems to be fine. but i think i'll be using GW for any grey lighter than that. that works very nicely
