i generally use tamiya paints and i was wondering what would be the best colour or mix of colours to recreate the German army uniform of World War 1?
Had this problem recently, searched around countless websites & forums to find perhaps a colour that most seemed to agree on. Sorry it's not Tamiya, but a generally accepted colour was Vallejos 'Field Blue' 964. However when I painted it on, it seemed to me 'too' blue, similar to the French uniforms? So I mixed it 50/50 with 'German Fieldgrey WW2' 830, and this looked better, still a hint of the blue, but not as strong.
Hope that's any help, obviously in paint colour it's each to their own, but this mix worked for me!
