    May sound obvious, but just paint what you see.
    You might be over complicating things.
    That's why Geno's are better than Pat's.......

    Thank you my friend, very good advice....... I'll do just that....
    You're right about Geno's but Pat's is close behind, I had one of their cheese stakes just the other day.....

    There were a couple of camels painted in Figure International magazine that might be worth a look (inc. paint colours used) if you are struggling - Issue 4 has the classic Dave Grieve Camel Corps figure and issue 40 has the 90 mm Andrea Lawrence of Arabia figure.

    Hope those help

    One thing I would add - a camel's coat is matt - not shiny like a horse's is...

    I think I'm going too use the dry brush technique with acrylic paints, this will give me a matt finish......

    One of the Masterbox sets has a camel. I used Vallejo German camouflage pale brown. Worked quite well.

    Eduardo Lopes painted this camel and (although I'm not unbiased) I happen to think it's the best! Thought it might be a useful example.

    All the best,
    Dan
