    Well, the US Marines went with basic Coyote tan for all their organizational gear (armor, web pouches, etc).

    The Brits went with a version of Multicam for their organizational gear, with more-brown camo for deserts and more-green camo for Europe. Edit: Their organizational gear uses the standard Multicam colors, their uniforms are either more-green or more-brown. This is probably the best option for any military to pursue.

    Pretty sure the US Navy is stuck with black for their organizational gear.

    I agree that tan and khaki would go well. That warm grey you've got on the camo would go better with those the realistic style you've got going than if you veered into colder colours.

    And nice work on that camo pattern. Looks great.

    My overall wish is to merge the realistic style with some typical SCI-FI accents. Kinda like those near-future artworks of diffrent mechs and cybersoldiers flowing on the internet (High-tech Caledonia hell yeah). Tan and khaki are really tempting, also beacause I'm working only with a basic set of colours and those are easily achievable through mixing other types of paint. But I'm afraid that I will get a bunch of wannabe MARSOC kinda looking guys, which is not really the aim here (with all respect to MARSOC ofc).
    Also big thanks for your responses and kind words. It is very encouraging.
