In the video it is very effective. I was hoping that they would show some one in a plain uniform in the similar places to get an idea of how effective the camo was, versus just hiding behind trees.

It was very good when the guy moved, then stopped, he very quickly blended in again.

One of the comments on the video suggests that the large hood really helped, as it breaks up the outline of the person, I guess making them more bush like. I did find it funny that the next linked you tube video was one about how to camouflage your face - for this video, I would be very surprised if what they were doing make much difference over any disruptive pattern over the face, at the likely range you would be seeing (or not seeing) the hiding person.

Have you seen the current Israeli army headgear?

Looks like a floppy bakers/chefs hat.

Looks ridiculous and works brilliantly - completely messes up the shape of the helmet & head into something the human eye just skips past as if it was a natural object!

I'm trying to find a YouTube video of a parade of Russian/Soviet WWII era tanks, some if not all replicas - there's a T-35, some T-34s, etc. - passing through a town. Anyone have the link? I thought it was on this thread but I don't see it...

I uploaded two videos from my recent trip to Athens which members might find interesting

1. The normal change of the Evzone Guard at the monument of the unknown soldier

2. The assembly hall of the old parliament building.

Thanks KT!
Watching the changing of the guard I was struck by the grace and balance required (not to mention remembering the complex choreography). The pigeons are apparently used to the whole thing.

Where to put this?  Undecided There are several threads certainly -OR- I could start a new thread - as Iíve done in previous years to celebrate this event. Certain areas of discourse in recent years, however, no longer engender the gut busting humor or playful bonhommie they once did.
So I shall Bogart this thread - created by a poster who can still make me snort morning coffee out through my nose! Even if I didnít paint 10mm or even wargame, I would come hear just to read the musings of Centurion Felix Septinius Novus (and his merry band of trolls and derailers). ďSure that was football?Ē Indeed!!  Grin

So now, with most of our former overlords abed, I give you:
