Shades of green...and grey...and tan....
« on: May 02, 2021, 13:04:15 »
The historic period (which isn't a very precise one, more or less a whole century) is usually not my cup of tea, but during the last months I
- came across old pictures of my Airfix-soldiers (never painted them as a child but used them to play outside until they.....quicksand in Germany?)
- fell in love with the Playmobil-jeep (again)
- realised how many shades of green, grey, brown actually exist
- came across a lot of those baggy-pants....with boots
and as I love a challenge (and figures without printing) I tried to find "plausible" combinations for the 20th century. I did a bit of research and there is more or less a correct uniform for every figure in these pictures but it is a wild mix out of about 100 years of military uniforms.

...and now it is time to step back into history again.

Lovely! You can turn your hand to any epoch, it seems!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Great stuff, really classic looking klickies! What is the "historic" period? I'm wondering if there is a different English equivalent as it sounds like a precise period.

A great-looking bunch, old and new parts integrate seamlessly!

I particularly like those in green sporting marroon berets, they stand out.

Never seen the jeep before. Looks perfect with that group of figures.
