Watching "Band of Brothers" and attempting to paint corresponding figures, I cannot figure out what color to paint the uniforms. Sometimes they look like a dull light chocolate brown and at other times and in different lighting they look greener. Can anyone tell me what colors to paint my figures if I wanted them to look like the movie. I have searched the internet, and as you can imagine, opinions vary there. Thanks for whatever help you can give me.
Best wishes,

Thanks for the link. I can only hope to find or to mix a color that matches the ones on the net. Having pictures of the real thing will help immensely.
Best Wishes,
