lol Leo :)

its one of the panzer aces Afrika Set. it has 2 colors. you mix the highlight with the base to get the highlights no shadow color so what i did was lightened my base color and will use it straight from the bottle as a shade. the cap is a mix of German camo orange and desert yellow. the pants i is the same but with a bit of khaki to lighten it a bit more just to get some colors going on him

oh and the Andrea paint set seems crap or i need to try it again and mix it with distilled water because it seems very matt

Hi P,

It was just that green seemed spot on , The yellows for the tropical -desert color varied from a buff to a orange yellow , and then lots of colors after washing ,and sun bleaching .
it turns out now i dont need the green for my figs , only the yellows :oDY
