    Alex, this is great help but are more stuff in web.
    Here...
    Here, you can find Model color tips for camo patterns

    Ardennes, you can paint it with splinter camo, or tarnwater pattern, trousers fieldgrey or grey, helmet white, or 3 color camo and you have more options...

    cheers

    Hello,I recently painted this figure:

    http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/fallschirmjager-ardennes-1944-jeffshiu-120mm.46529/

    I use colors used by Jaume in his book and are perfect:

    Splintermuse pattern:

    Base: Iraqui sand 819 + Deck tan 986 + Chocolate brown 872

    Red Brown: Mahogany Brown 846 + Chocolate Brown 872

    Medium Green: Olive grey 888 Blue green 808 + Deck Tan 986

    The pants can paint from Fieldgrey, olive to blue luftwaffe.

    regards

    Hi again friends!

    Finally I decided to use this camo (really i don't know it's technical name... o_O )

    But now, my doubt is... which colors can I use as base for the three diferent parts? I never had painted a camo , so i'm very lose.

    About the panths, I've decide to use a fieldgrey. What do you think?
