Painting Federales

Postby dabinla » Sat Jul 21, 2018 2:47 pm

I just purchased some of old glorys 25mm Mexican infantry skirmishing with peaked caps, and am looking for some painting advice.
i use Vallejo paints exclusively. i see that Osprey has them in Khaki, while every Spaghetti Western i have ever seen they are always in off white.
i see there is a badge on the top of the commanders cap what color was that?

What time frame will you be painting them for? The uniforms changed over time.
