To be honest when I first painted the U.S. navy I was pretty much happy with the color scheme that I had used. Lately though I am leaning more towards realistic color schemes that more or less resemble or come close to the real colors used by the militaries and navies of The World War I I era. I find that getting the right color scheme gets more difficult every time since most militaries and navies used schemes that sort of resembled each other. Their are most definitely differences but sometimes it can be some what difficult coming up with the right color schemes specially when painting naval miniatures. Once again, thanks for your insight John Brown.
This is so true! I find that my tastes in color schemes are constantly evolving - I could easily be repainting my set for the next 40 years. Ultimately it’s all about what you prefer, and sometimes you prefer historical accuracy over aesthetics. If you play often with other people it can be important to make different nations distinguishable, but I don’t have many other people to play with, so it is mostly a painting hobby at this point. I haven’t actually played Global 1940 in over a year.
Thanks for your contributions DTROY. Your set has a particular style or theme that makes it look very cohesive. I like it!
