Any suggestions? My current formula is:

Basecoat VMC 886 Green Grey
Add patches of VMC 882 Middlestone
Then patches of 1:1 875/846 Beige Brown/Mahogany Brown + dots on the other colors
823 Luftwaffe Camo Green
And finally 1:1 979/995 German Dark Green/German Grey
Wash (Agrax Earthshade)

However, it seems the mixture always turns to mud. My thought is to wash after the basecoat then apply the speckling, though that loses shading if I overdo the colors.

I've seen the Eureka Minis tutorial and loosely followed it, though yellow olive has been a color type that eludes me, either buying or mixing. Any tips or experience with this treacherous camo on the small scale? I'm 100% with vallejo model color so formulas with them are appreciated all the more.

My first thought is to maybe streamline the colors to the prominent ones. Best I can tell that'd be the khaki, red-brown, and green.

I can provide pictures of my current tests later today to help showcase what I'm trying and what I can improve.
