NORTHAG 10mm BAOR Infantry

 10mm BAOR Infantry

Disruptive Pattern Material (DPM)

The question is do you paint the camouflage on a 10mm figure? Answer is; if your reading this your a wargamer and you really want too! I love DPM however having painted modern Multicam on 28mm figures I really don't fancy it. Also will it be seen? Not really although that's the whole point I suppose. I've thought lots about this and I feel there are two options for me; I paint them green with a black wash and hope it looks right or do the same and say they're wearing their NBC suits! Most people on the Facebook page are having similar thoughts so i guess that's the solution, let people guess what it is!


  • Generic black primer
  • Flames of war Russian Uniform 924 for the basecoat and missile weapons 
  • Vallejo Black Grey 70.862 for the boots and weapons
  • Vallejo Sunny Skin Tone 70.845 for the flesh
  • Flames of war Green Grey 886 for the webbing
  • Flames of war Flat Earth 983 for the stocks, you can use Black Grey for plastic stocks
  • Flames of war Reflective green 890 for the helmet cover
  • Vallejo Khaki 70.988 for the helmet scrim
  • Citadel Nuln Oil wash all over
  • Generic Burnt Umber for the MDF base
  • Vallejo Matt Varnish 70.520 to seal the model.
Little nod to Mark Greenwald on the Northag Facebook page for the original recipe which I adapted to my collection.

Final thoughts

I'm really happy with how these turned out. The mobile pictures don't really do the models justice. I painted them quickly due to a game being in the pipeline, and nothing compares to painting the Russians! Playing the game proved that on the tabletop you really can't discern any detail. I'm thinking of painting the edges of the MDF bases blue for NATO and red for the Russians to help, and maybe some other marking for different weapon systems.
I have some Spetsnaz to show off next, with some animals to paint as there hidden markers, should be interesting!
