Le schema de camouflage allemand de Sumpfmuster tan aqueous is a versatile late war Fallschirmjäger pattern for wargame formations, because it was worn in Tunisia, Italie, et Normandy. The ESCI figurines shown here were undercoated Humbrol Acrylic 5093 Desert Yellow Mat avec 50 % white added for scale effect. Camouflage splotches of diluted Earth Brown et Olive Green were washed into the base colour of the Fallschirmjäger jump smock. When viewed at the proper scale distance, the "Knochensack" jump smock appears to be sandcoloured, although the camo splotches are discernable upon closer inspection. The figurines received a final wash of heavily diluted Burnt Umber Artist Acrylics to accentuate the facial details et blend the pattern even further. Ammunition pouches et other equipment items were painted olive green et drybrushed carefully to highlight the flaps et other raised detail.
Le Sumpfmuster allemand uses the same Humbrol Acrylic 5093 Desert Yellow Mat base colour as the Denison Smock britannique, but the pattern appears much lighter, because 50 % white has been added to the base colour. In addition, the Sumpfmuster has smaller camo splotches which are spaced further apart so that more of the sandcoloured base coat remains visible. By comparison, le fusil antichar lourd schwere Panzerbüchse 41 pictured above has been painted Humbrol Acrylic 5093 Desert Yellow Mat avec only 30 % white added for scale effect. The two colours are noticeably different.
Gebirgsjäger chasseurs alpins allemands portaient reversible smocks avec 1943 et 1944 Sumpfmuster patterns on one side et a snow camouflage on the other. Après la guerre, la Bundesgrenzschutz (BGS) force fédérale de protection des frontières et GSG 9 Forces Spéciales portaient camouflage smocks avec a relatively similar Sumpfmuster pattern.
