Invasion of Abyssinia 1935-36 : italian uniform ?
« on: July 15, 2013, 12:32:55 PM »
Hello,

First of all, sorry if the question has already been posted, I have searched on the forum without any success...  

I'd like to start an Invasion of Abyssinia project, but I fail to find the "right" painting color (Vallejo or GW) for Italian uniforms and this problem makes me crazy ! Can someone help me please ?

Many thanks (and sorry for my bad english),

J-B

Jehan,

Your english is excellent. There is a thread here which might help:  http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=12836.0

A possible sourcebook is here:

As to colours it seems that Khaki as a colour is a shade in the eye of the beholder. I would simply compare the colour chart (link below) and pick the closest.

A link to Vallejos colour chart is here:

Yes, quite. We only have eight battle reports on our links page. Not nearly enough.
