Germans, what you coming as?

Postby Steiner » Sun Mar 18, 2012 4:09 pm

Kameraden, it would be nice if some of us could co-ordinate our kit, rather than seeing every type of German unit that ever existed. :wink:

My strong preference is Heer Infanterie (although I could do Waffen SS Infanterie also).

So, what does everyone want to do?

Well me and Tom are a sniper team for this one, so had been thinking of SS as easier to get concealment with the camo, but happy to do Heer if thats the preferance :good:

Field greys - my jacket is currently badged as Heer pioneer, so it will stay as such. :D

Well, it makes sense - neutral colours don't clash so greys or even khakis make good alternatives to black. Muted browns or tans also work but in all cases it must be plain colours - patterns will always risk dating or being branded with the 'fashion victim' tag. :lol:
