So here's my officer dude, destined to be my commander. Problem is, I'm not sure how to paint him. I know that I want to him to wear woodland MARPAT like the rest of the guys in the command squad, but there is the problem of his cloak... It looks really nice, and but has ornate clasps, etc., suggesting a dress uniform of sorts. Painting it the same colors of the camo would turn it into a drab model, I'd think--just a blob of camo colors. But at the same time, I don't want to paint it bright red or anything--after all, he's a commander in the field and probably wouldn't dress in "shoot me" colors, and since the rest of him will be in camo colors, I don't want to paint him in colors that would clash horribly, making the model look terrible. So far the only colors I can think to make it are either black or coyote tan (desert yellow darkened with devlan mud). Any ideas?
