Anyone has a good reference for a nice warm green for Warsaw pact armour?

I like GW Kharloc Green for my Russian vehicles

I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

I have no idea how accurate they are, but Vallejo does a Soviet WW3 set - Amazon UK link

My T90 (based on a T80 paint job) has a base coat of Vallejo Russian uniform Green (or PSC British Tank Green).


My T55 has a base coat of Humbrol 86 Light Olive.


This is a bit early, but a T26 with base coat of Humbrol Dark Green.


A UAZ-469, again in Humbrol Dark Green.

I've been using Humbrol 150 for years, but think I might simply use a charred black in the future, as they all seem to be that colour nowadays.

I used humbrol French artillery green from their napoleon I’ve range - don’t know how accurate it is but it looks right.
In 6 mill though so might not fit bigger scales

That's Humbrol 150 these days, as Big Jem uses.

I went looking for this in a GW store last week, to be told that Khaloc Green is from one of their old ranges. He didn't really have a corresponding new one, so you may need to hunt it down.

Knarloc Green was "replaced" by Loren Forest, but it is not a direct swap as Loren is both lighter and more saturated. A 50:50 of Loren and Caliban Greens will probably be about right.

Personally I use Humbrol enamel 159 as primer/basecoat for all my "green" vehicles.
