1st Modern African Imagi-nation project WIP

Hi guys

My first modern platoon sized skirmish project (might use modern chain of command), an Infantry platoon for my central African imagi-nation, The democratic republic of Botswalia, figures were converted from Italeri's 1/72 plastic Vietcong, Warsaw pact, and US special forces bodies with various US M1 helmet heads, added cargo pockets on their pants, various packs/pouches, scratch built some machetes, I have given all the leaders beret heads, which I will paint either red or green.
Not sure what camo I will use, thinking of using several cammos, maybe 70% Rhodesian or British  denison smock, and 30% another 2 different camos, any suggestions? maybe US woodland and soviet sun bunnies? maybe a tigers stripe pattern? i'de like something with a majority bright green, I want them to look a little irregular but professional.
Thinking I will be able to use them in scenarios from the 70s to today, vehicles will be a mix of British (former British colony, Britain continued to supply) and soviet (captured from wars with neighbours)
I"m also making a ultra modern US and Russian forces and a local communist style guerrilla enemy.

French CoC infantry finished and WIP Type 40 crew

Hi guys

Early 1/72nd French CoC Platoon finished, as well as my converted crew for the German Type 40 car.
Pics are a little poor, very overcast here today, had to use a flash.
The French are a mixture of Pegasus, Caesar, and Hat WWI French, many converted, theres 3x12 man Rifle sections, and a mortar, HMG, FO, and sniper for supports, will make some engineers and AT guns, as well as adding armour and vehicles, I have bought a pre painted Char B1 bis (first time I have done this), which I will shade/highlight and weather using my usual techniques, its quite a nice model.
The German crew are converted from Hat tank rider bodies and AB heads, left over from my Gebirgsjagers project.
