Recently finished painted this figure of the London Scottish regiment. Poppies added for setting the Flanders theme.

Nice painting, also a nice idea with the poppies. I have a question about the uniform color.
Isn't the khaki too dark ? I confess, I am not sure about the British uniform colours in WW1.  :)

Thank You :)

Both the British and German uniform color has been an uncertain area for me. One would think that less colorful uniforms are a easier matter, I've changed my mind about that lol  The khaki like the Field Grey varied much in hue. And a source of endless discussion. Looking at all the variety I just settle for what I feel look right and is authentic. For ww1 Germans I've settled on a plain grey instead of the greenish-grey tint.

Right decision. You're right, uniform issues permanently trigger heated discussions.
In the end, the result counts and that looks good.
