 As I am a WWI gamer with Armies in Africa and Palestine, I had to vote for the Asian Korps, just as I had to go to the movies to see the new Indiana Jones movie to support our genre.

Yes, they're an abomination of history. I'm choosing to pretend their clothes were fabricated and dyed locally by Bedouin who never understood the concept of khaki, rather than the more prosaic case that there were two weeks until the convention, I didn't have the right color on hand, and I made several incredibly wrong assumptions regarding what a heavy brown wash could do.

If I win this round, I will demand a recount!  lol

Okay, I've just revisited my Asienkorps colour as I was not pleased with the end result. I wanted a much darker colour to work from. Looking at period b/w photos, IMHO I believe this to be my intreptation. I'll place some photos up soon. 8)

Really really tough choice this one... :(
