I'm just about to start painting up some 10mm US infantry and wondered if anyone could suggest a uniform colour guide (preferably Humbrol enamels)

Hi there

Not humbrol I'm afraid but there is some superb guides here using Vallejo acrylic paints

Flames of War has a color guide, with suggestions of what shades of Humbrol, Vallejo, Model Master, Tamiya, and GW paints you can use.

I used the FoW US paint set. The guide on the back of the box works great. I don't think many people paint miniatures using Humbrol or any kind of enamels any more.

There is no such thing as US "colours". We have "colors". grin

No, I think you'll find that 'colours' is the correct English spelling of the word John. Lol.

Maybe, but these ARE US troops, which are of course a fish of a different color.

Lol… Point taken Dynaman. Thanks for the links everyone. Very helpful as usual! The FoW link is very good and I think I'll be using there colour scheme.

Not a paint guide per say but a great read on reality against regulation.

Cerb – that is a great read (and made me smile too – love his attitude :-) )
