I k know I've recently seen a painting guide for ww2 Belgian troops, and I'm sure I remember it being on Warlord's site using their Belgian range. But now I can't find it.

Does anyone else remember seeing this and can help me find it?

Several months ago when Warlords offered the painting guides for free, I downloaded them all…but there was no Belgium one.

Serge, thanks for the info. Are you saying those were warlord's suggested colors, but having seen the uniforms (in person? In photos?), you don't think they match?

Serge6929 Mar 2017 1:33 a.m. PST

Yes these are Warlord colours.

For me correct colors are:
Uniform M1928: 879
Uniform M1935: 886
Helmet M1931: XF62
Webbing Mills M1930: 914
Webbing M1908: 846
Boots & gaiters M1891: Black
Breadsack M1915/1930/1935: 988 or 819
Gasmask container: 924
Havresack M1930: 880
Mess tin M1915: 830
Mess tin M1896: Aluminium

Would you go for the same uniform colour as Warlord? The one uniform I did see was a lot darker, almost like the British uniform colour.
