PantsFor various reasons, I like to paint my Russians with slightly mismatched uniform colors. I could be that the uniforms were manufactured with variances in the material, the dye, different factories, or perhaps the soldiers themselves have served for differing lengths of time. For any of these reasons I like to choose a variety of shades of color and paint a few soldiers in each. This first picture shows the colors I used to paint the soldiers pants.

TunicsI do the jackets or tunics in the same way. I choose a range of colors and paint them on. This time, more care has to be taken to not slop onto their pants, hands or necks and heads. Here are the colors I used. (I have to admit I'm having second thoughts about 70824 - the German camo orange ochre...)
