So, in 6mm, what color brown do you use for your Austrian gun crews?

There has to be an Austrian gun crew brown out there somewhere :)

I like Vallejo 70.913 FS33434 (Yellow Ochre) with a GW Earthshade wash

Yes, but it's for 12mm evil grin

I used a Burnt Umber as a base then brown earth as a highlight.

For sixes, I would also use a burnt umber base, but something of a chestnut highlight.

it depends for what time period, they changed from earth grey to a deeper brown in about 1792 – 96
