I have a game coming up for Southern Front in 28 mm and I have the wonderful Rommel figure from Artizan Design as the objective. I am trying to find color sources for what his officer uniform color would be. Is it close to the rest of the Afrika Korps color scheme?

Samples of your own paint jobs of this model would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Light colored jacket and dark colored pants. Stuff faded pretty quickly. If you say it is Rommel we will believe you.

Thanks Combat Painter. I actually had to give myself a facepalm as after I posted this thread I suddenly found a ton of photographic sources online. From the photo record your example and just about any combination thereof will work. I posted a link below to some of the best examples.
