Their dirty "ACUs" (Army Combat Uniform) or UCP (Universal Camo Pattern) as it is officially known on the labels should be instantly apparent.

I need to find a more subdued "tan" as the ACU is covered in small, digital tan. I wanted to give you a sense of what that uniform looks like, even if it is a vague resemblance, it's good enough for this Iraqi Freedom veteran.
I used Folk Art's "Aspen Green, Italian Sage, and Pebblebrook" for the colors. Also a light black wash to darken it ever-so-slightly and show off the beautiful toy soldiers that Caesar produces. Now I REALLY need to finish my British Lights! Huzzah!

All in all, not bad looking. The wash helps bring out the detail but I need to find a better tan. GW's Graveyard Earth didn't do it. Perhaps "Kommando Khaki" with the wash applied will do the trick.
