"What might that be?" you ask?
Well, my goal was that if one was to look at these guys, you're first thought would be "they are obviously US troops probably serving in a combat zone." I think each time I painted them, it got a little better but I think I've figured out the secret to getting small soldiers to look like they're wearing multi-cam - bascially layering very, very small khaki squiggles "atop" of the dark brown squiggles.
While on the actual uniform, the squiggles, both black and light tank, are offset slightly, to get the same effect on 15mm troopers, they have to be layered or the viewer (or fellow gamer) loses the effect.
|by layering, it also brings out the background colors more|
|The addition of some blobs and dots helps, but no cigar.|
So that's it. For my Multi Cam I use the following colors:
GW Deathworld Forest as a base.
Folk Art Ivy Green or VJ Luftwaffe Green blobs
AB brown oxide blobs near the green blobs
VJ German Camo dark brown thin squiggles.
AP Khaki thinner squiggles and lines atop the dark brown thin squiggles
