I am going to use Woodbine Gurkhas as Police or Military Police for Malayan Emergency (I know they are not correct, but I don't care).

would you paint them in khaki (sand) or in jungle green?

they are 28mm and they wear shorts. I have seen pictures of malayan troops in shorts and they had khaki uniforms.

In Malaya, a very pale washed out green.

Matakishi did Malaya like this:


He used the Inkerman/Britannia models which are now with Grubby Tanks.

Eureka do some very nice post-war Brits for Aden with SLRs which, at a pinch, you could use for very late Malaya or, as I plan to, the Indonesian Confrontation.

I would like to add some warlord games chindits to my Woodbine Gurkhas. How do they fit size and style wise?
