British Army Uniform Colour WWII

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

I have some lovely metal Dad's Army mini-figures to paint. The problem is I can't match a colour by eye to save my life! Which paint / colour should I be using for WWII British Army uniforms? (Sorry if it's asking the bleeding obvious but my inability to pick / recognise colours really holds me back sometimes :) )

The specified colour was Khaki, but that varied per dye lot, material the uniform was made from, age and the quality of the light it was seen in. It was a kind of brownish/greenish colour. Tamiya XF-49 Khaki is a good starting point. Then add a drop or 2 of white, black or green to vary it a bit.
