Since Wehrmacht (Heer) uniforms differed very much in coloring it's pretty much up to you how to colorize. Basically there's no typical "Feldgrau" (field gray) but it comes in all kinds of shades from gray, blue, green, olive and brown.

I might say a little more 'green' in the uniform colour on some rather than grey, but they look wonderful.

You have the Oakleaf spot on in this one...

The Fiendish Red Baron Thanks for the help,I was thinking I should have put some green in there. I'll keep that in mind for this uniform in the future. Thanks

I didn't know this was your work, Za Rodinu. I remember a couple of these photos being uploaded some time ago on the photo site. Indeed the colorization of the camo is ****ing amazing!
