Thanks Andy!

I like how they're shaping up, but might I suggest to darken that bright yellow/green? and I know you explained to me that you wern't good at camo yet, but also add it to the helmets!

i am more a fan of splinter camo (example (http://www.pistolpetechecklist.com/camoimages/lightsplintercamo.jpg)) . But this one looks good aswell.
Especially this way, only the jacked. Not the helmet and trousers. Its to much camouflage otherwise (matter of taste, i know).
The helmet looks a bit dark btw, when looking at these (http://home.tiscali.be/het.vaandel/GERMAN_HELMET_1940_WEHRMACHT_1.htm) or
these (http://home.tiscali.be/het.vaandel/GERMAN_HELMET_1940_WEHRMACHT_2.htm) pictures.

Looks like toad or frog skin! :eek:

What tarnmuster / camouflage variant is that? Never seen it before, Iīm quite sure thatīs not a W-SS one.

Looks more like a fantasy product to me. Have you any sources to prove this camouflage really existed?

With a slight recolor that is a pretty good 'Italian' pattern jacket, used by the SS in Italy and also the 12th SS in Normandy

Iīm sorry, but the skin looks nothing like the Italian San Marino camo pattern... a recolor wouldnt do it... you need to change the basic lines and forms as well as the arrangements of the single color elements in the camouflage pattern.

Donīt take this as a bash, Iīm just trying to point out some weaknesses of that skin.

The Source is At The Front Militaria.

I took the skin from a Picture of a fabric sample for a Spring Camo SS Smock.

nice try!!!

i think that a accurate waffen ss soldier type needs also a new model player besides a tunic

Andy, could you possibly get a scan of the page where the mentioned pattern is shown? Iīve got "W-SS camouflage uniforms & post-war derivatives" from Daniel Peterson, and although itīs a good reference, I canīt seem to find the matching pattern in there.

Or could you get the German designation of that pattern? Would help as well. Thanks!

I've never seen that Camo type before either. Looks like someone vomited on his jacket in strategic places :(
