Great work Grimm on describing the paints you used on the uniforms.

I'll post this as a link to the WW1 painting guide.

Many thanks for taking the time in writing the painting guide.

Which was the most common color?
I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it anymore and what is it seems weird and scary.

Very good work!  I like the officer with the New Service Colt revolver and the 1911 holster.  That was common.  Colt couldn't turn out the 1911 automatic  fast enough so both Colt and Smith & Wesson produced a revolver in .45 ACP.  It is Indiana Jones' pistol of choice in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
