You've really hit the mark on the German color palette, they're wonderfully done!

Great as always! Your fieldgrey is spot on. Btw it's called Feldm├╝tze.

My word, sir! They are simply spiffing. Lovely figures painted to an amazing standard.

I must ask, how on earth do you get the uniform colour so perfect???

Look forward to seeing more!

Regards

Moiterei, spelling error corrected. Thanks. I should proof read before hitting the "post" button.

Matt, this M1910 grey is a base coat of Coat D'Arms Field Drab that has been highlighted up with VMC Light Grey. The last time I painted M1910 uniform (before these Mutton Chop releases)was back in 2008. I tried other grey tones as the base coat and they just didn't quite look right.,,, too dark. When I came to paint up Mutton Chop packs GER1 and GER2 as a commission I went rumaging through the paint racks and stumbled on the long forgotten pot of CDA Field Drab! "Bingo!" said I to self. So the answer to your question is simply "pure luck".
