I have been having a problem determining what Vallejo colors to use to paint early German Camoflauge helmet covers at Stalingrad. Can someone give me some recommendations?

I think these are the ones I use. The green might be Reflective Green or Luftwaffe Camo Green, etc. but you get the idea.

German Camo Beige 821 main color
Luftwaffe Camo Green 823
Flat Brown 984

Here is a suggested list from a TMP'er:

I use Green Grey 886 as the base, and German Camo Medium Brown 826 and Camo Olive Green 894 for my Heer splinter pattern camo.

I find the Camo Beige 821 looks more fitting for sumpfmuster camo than splinter camo.

From what I can tell, there also seems to be a 1938 Amoeba pattern from captured Soviet stocks.
