Troops

I removed the gloves and changed the skin tone.

Iraq Republican Guard:

Iraq Special Republican Guard:

SS_16_20_42.jpg

SS_00_09_19.jpg

SS_00_11_34.jpg

I'll also remove the markings from the tan version for Saddam era Iraqi regular army; basically this should be a good representation for most Arab armies from the 1960s-1970s. Will upload soon.

Outstanding! To me, that fourth picture down looks like something from the Pakinstani Army.

Not with those RPG-29s! This is what the BTR-80 troops are equipped with. Serious.

I've demoted these guys from Special Republican Guard to Republican Guard, took away the paratroop badge.

Your West German uniform is certainly possible. The problem with the others is

that currently headgear like berets, organizational BDU caps, Muslim head wraps, French Foreign Legion kepi, Russian cap and so on are not possible. If pants are bloused with blousing straps or spiked into

boots in an unusual way, that will also not be possible. Tthe equipment belts also give you no choice other than what the texture will look like, but the 3D shape can't be changed.

I know that, the Model is the Model. So I expect no Wonders....

For the GDA Headgear, the russian Helmet just need a Net, I think

Next Prob is the G3 as a standard weapon for Bundeswehr at that Time........

Looks very nice as always CC!

Must ask with the last pic, the marking on the helmet, is that an Arabic "3"?

It's either a 2 or a 3, kind of hard to tell. Looks like a 3 at first glance, though.

2:٢

3:٣

Note how the 2 and 3 both look like the western arabic versions, just tilted sideways with a "tail" added.

It's deliberately made to look hand written and less elegant- all the reference pictures I've seen look like that rather than stenciled or painted professionally at the factory. It looks to me like individual units took the initiative to hand draw their own markings and insignia, even within the same units they had varied or no markings, different helmet patterns or no pattern; in other words, it's not standardized.

Bah.

All that is needed is a slap of a hand dunked in white paint.

That ... and a swear of allegiance to Saruman.

In that case, it's a "2", the handwritten version of those numbers differs slightly from the "printed" version.

I suppose I could. Homer passed along to me some reference materials to do uniforms. I want to finish these and a desert T-72 as my next goal.

Well if and when you do, I too have reference materials of the uniforms of the various factions in that conflict so feel free to contact me if you want to use them.
