Hi guys

I couldn't find my cadmium oxide which is used for the green camo (its been 15 years since I used it) so tried to mix up some using raw umber and a light green, but its very light, might have to go over it with paint, the red brown came out OK, its all sealed under a matt coat now. Going to do some more work on these this arvo, lots more work needed on the figs to.

Personally I think your colors look just fine. There was a wide variation in color intensities. For field applied finishes the unit received the paste which had to be mixed with various liquids, petrol being just one, and applied.

Being a modeler, in addition to being a gamer, I can understand not being happy with a result :)

I agree with Marc, green looks great. But would the Germans have wasted paint on Schwimmvagons? Small enough to hide, not like Panzer IV and other tanks.

Yes, schwimmwagens were camoed, they even camoed horse drawn carts.
