What colours are Korean War North Korean uniforms.

I use Army Painter and Humbrol paints mostly.

I am colour blind.

Many Thanks

I think you would be better if you use a russian colour for example from vallejo, which has a nice russian army colour.
Remember one thing every army tunic colour has an extremely wide range of nuances, so you would be fine with that.
Good luck and show us a picture.

As noted, they are pretty much the same colours as Russian uniforms. I have a real ex Soviet padded jacket and trousers, and the closest shade is Vallejo English Uniform (ie khaki).

Vallejo Russian Uniform is pretty green, fine for some cotton summer uniforms (although some were khaki too, or tan).

So maybe do them in a mix if the two.

While there is evidence that the North Koreans did use a Russian Uniform Green, there is also indications that a khaki color might have been used.
