I would find this useful if I was new to paints.
That sounded really condescending, sorry.
I think I meant that were I new to the hobby and did not already have loads of paints it may be useful.
But I would just as happily use leather brown or wood brown, or beasty brown as my saddle colour and so on.
But then I never was that fussed about the right shade of uniform, my Napoleonic British were red with the correct flags, this made it obvious what nation they were and this was good enough for me,
