Finished some Soviet colourtests, but not really happy

I finished the MTLB's shown in my previous post, but I am not really happy with the green.

I'm going for the camouflaged look, though most sources say that the Soviets usually just went with plain green I like the camouflage a lot. The thing is the green (on both vehicles) looks a little too bright.

I'm going to try with an even darker green base color and highlight with the current base color. The GHQ infantry is so tiny there isn't really a lot one can do wrong with it, maybe I'll highlight the uniforms next time.

  1. Camouflage is tough to pull off on this scale without an airbrush to get the 'feathered' look. Most Soviet armor was done in a "Soviet Green" (Kind of a dark forest green/olive mix), with the idea of painting camouflage stripes on only in time of war. I found a very interesting Gray-Green camouflage mix for the GSFG near the end of cold war here: My attempts came out too blue, however.
