Personally I like bright paint jobs and tend towards the theory of the
electronic battlefield doing away with camouflage. Hence I have an
Aboriginal dot art colour scheme on my Dirtside force (they are OUDF
all) and have also done individual vehicles for display in 'Liqourice
Allsorts' colours, Mondrian primary colours (for an updated Artists
and a Heavy Metal Brigade in various metallic paints. I like to hang a
theme on the unit, this is sci-fi after all, not reallity.

On the subject of real cammo though Brasseys do an excellent uniform
on cammo since 1918. Excellent even though it is rather expensive. I'm
their other uniform books are pretty damn good too.
