Hello I'm looking for a good painting guide for WW1 models. I use GW paints (legacy of a misspent youth) any advice?

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Somewhere in southern England.

Do you want camouflage guides or basic uniforms and vehicle colours?

If camouflage, do you want air or sea?

We're not very big on official rules. Rules lead to people looking for loopholes. What's here is about it.

Both would be good however mostly early war British and French uniforms for now. I'm painting up some 1/72 figures for both armies.

Okay.

You'll definitely find something for army uniforms in Osprey Books.

Naval camouflage is fully covered in

which I have -- it's about the only complete reference on the subject.

There's stuff available about aircraft camouflage on the Web and no doubt some book references as well.
