Just trying out some colours for my GNW Russian foot and am having trouble finding a suitable green for the coats. Can anyone who has painted these let me know what colour(s) they used?

Worth remembering that it's all vegetable dyes, and no one had a colorfast green. I don't know how dark it would have been on issue, but it's going to fade toward yellow-green. I wouldn't lose a lot of sleep over it.

I used Vallejo Flat Green 968, washed with dark brown
