Just received some really nice figures from Brigade Games Drug War Z kick starter and I am needing some suggestions for the color of the Policia figures uniforms.
I have looked at photos of modern day uniforms and 3 color schemes seem to prevail. One is a navy blue, another is a lighter blue and finally an army green.
Any advice?

I went with navy blue for my figures.

I've seen police in both green and khaki uniforms in Baja California. Police cars are green and white.

Navy blue is the uniform color in Mexico City.

BTW – I'm using Stan Johnson Iraqi police for my Mexicans. They have baseball type caps and most have oversized mustaches. I did swap out their AK-47s for M-16s.

A side bonus for this scheme is they can very easily stand in a 20th century American SWAT teams

Thanks everyone.
I believe I am going to go with the navy blue.
