Believe it or not, I'm color blind, but I'm a pretty good painter. Basically, with red/green color blindness its really hard with shades of green / brown / mud / red / maroon / etc. Of course, many of these colors show up in the uniforms and gear of the World War 2, or Weird War 2 soldier.

The way I get around this is to get color guides from my friends or other enthusiasts that give me the basis of what to paint ... then I can use the colors by name (I know if I mix more red into a brown it gets darker, who cares if I can't really tell you the actual color value).

So, it would be VERY helpful if someone could suggest a color scheme using color names for the main areas of the Axis, Allied, and SSU troops. I use Games Workshop but names from any paint range would do. For example, just knowing what colors to use for coats, pants, helmets, gloves, straps, and armor would be a great start. I can figure out the weapons and such myself.

Thanks to anyone who can provide this ... it would be worth posting in the Files section if you do.
