Of course, my advanced cammie-jammies may change colours to both
natural terrain (whichever I'm in making me near invisible) or to a
dress uniform pattern (bright colours for parades). Maybe this
justifies hidden units (to poke another thread) as your troops blend
with the background.... (griN). And it justifies outrageous paint
jobs as the figures are merely in garrison dress or dress uniforms.
(As Mr. A would say, If you need the smiley to know I'm kidding,
you've got big problems...)
