Painting Team Yankee Americans with Vallejos...

So I refuse to buy into Battlefront's new "painting system" as I am already deeply invested in the old Vallejo paints and airbrush paints.

Wondering if anyone could point me towards painting tutorials for 1980's European theater Americans that use Vallejo Model Color or much preferably, Vallejo Model Air paints.

I would like to try and figure it out for myself from the Team Yankee rulebook, but I'm colorblind and I don't think it will go well.

My Russians are just getting airbrushed Russian Green and calling it a day.

Thanks.

I believe Vallejo has a box set of NATO colors. There is even a Vallejo NATO green and brown. I'm doing my Abrams in just plain nato green and the m113s in the camo pattern.

I don't know all the equivalents but NATO/Forest Green is Vallejo 95 US Dark Green.

I'm thinking of doing my Abrams in Forest Green with a winter whitewash, just to be different, like this:

You can get the Vallejo NATO airbrush color. They work pretty well. I have come to prefer the MiG line for both Soviet and NATO colors.
