Hi Guys. I'm just starting to collect and paint some US Infantry in 28mm. I'm aiming to paint them for France in 1944. I've read that there seems to be some options for the colour of their trousers. The brown woolen ones, the green HBT ones and the Green OD ones. I've also read somewhere that any trousers with the cargo pockets on the thighs should be green rather than brown. Can anyone confirm this? I have a box of the old Warlord US infantry with no pockets on their trousers and a box of the new Warlord US infantry with pockets on their trousers. Just want to make sure I get the colours right. Any help would be much appreciated.

There were no wool pants with cargo pockets, so paint those green.
