Well, here is my first squad of 15mm US Army figs (Rebel Minis) in ACUs. I went to the local surplus store and looked at used and new uniforms and gear, made notes and took some pics, but it didn't help. I picked the colors closest to the most common colors (there was variation, even in new product), painted a couple of figs, and it didn't look right at all, did that a couple more times before giving up on doing it right. So here they are, right or wrong, good or bad ( mostly bad).
I ended up using Vallejo 987 Medium Grey for the base coat, and Vallejo 886 Green Grey and 830 German WWII Green for the grey/green camo, applying with a stipple method using a beat up brush. They appear slightly darker in person, though it doesn't help much. I may just finish the platoon in ACU, rather than the whole company, and give a try to multicam for the next platoon. I don't know. Right now I'm just frustrated. Digial camo is just killing me.
Where shall we go from here?
