If you've been looking for a bit more of this now discontinued color (that code is now Camo Olive Green) consider trying Coat d'Arms 521 Army Green. Comparing the two side-by-side in the jar they are very, very close.

Yes, I used it today for Russian helmets. Great for Russian armor as well. It is almost identical.

Mark, did they dump Russian Green altogether, or just rename it Camo Olive Green?

I use heaps of 894 – it is a major colour for Soviets etc – if it has been discontinued I better get down to the LGS and buy whats left!

The old 894 has been replaced. If you can find a few old pots but them up. The new 894 is a much lighter, much more "yellow" color green.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm off to the hobby store.

No biggie. Don't horde. There are many identical or similar colors from other makers. What is the emergency? Just cause FOW says use this doesn't mean you can't use this other one. My goodness. Panic in the streets!

In the Foundry range you have Phleem Green Shade which is pretty close.

How Russian Khaki from Andrea Color? Looks pretty close.


Apparently made by vallejo for Andrea Color.
