The recent release of French Infantry WW2 by Heller suggests to paint uniforms in Light Earth Humbrol 119.

75%-25% mix of respectively Hu26 (or Hu119) and Humbrol 86 could be accurate.

Thanks, my reference calls the colour Khaki but the illustration shows predominantly green :mad:
For once maybe I should have followed the description rather than the image :oops:

Rather Hu26 on the pictures.

Maybe more green shade for officer uniforms ? At least for this humoristic movie :wink: ?

In France eveything related to Army Green is nicknamed "Kakhi", even if it is deep green.
