In 15mm, how do the gamers paint Prussian Fusilier regiment #35 – Prinz Heinrich, to look different from Fusilier Regiment #39?

Heinrich small clothes and collar/cuffs are "sulpher yellow, which shows in Osprey #240, and in an old Knoetel plate, as a rather pale yellow.

Heinrich is shown in the Sturm cigarette cards of pre-war Nazi fame as an off greenish yellow colour, and the coat a mid-blue. This is repeated in Engelmann/Dorn, probably copied from the sturm cards. I believe this combination is wrong?

#39 is faced lemon yellow, and Engelmann/Dorn show it as a rather pale yellow. Both have white metal "furniture" on the fusilier caps.

Are the flags (colours) the only identifier?

Kronoskaf gives "sulphur yellow" for FR 35 (RGB 235/232/103) and "dark (deep) yellow" for FR 39 (RGB 244/174/29). Sulphur has a greenish hue, whereas dark is a true yellow.

Once again, you stole my thunder Altefritz. That was going to be my suggestion as well.

I had to mix my own sulfur yellow paint using yellow paint and several drops of lime green paint.

To confuse matters further, here is a sample from Benjamin Moore:


Look like someone added as spot of brown to GErman Dark Yellow of WWII!
