hmm kid of jungle fighter/ toxic wastes ?
Yea I was going for a Jungle type camo look.
nice how long did you spend on the model?
Bout 3 hours or so. Now that i took some pictures i can see a few places it looks sloppy. But it was a quicky job just to test out the colors and see if I liked the way they turned out.
Since your flak armor is already green, I'd suggest painting the fatigues in a muted contrasting color, perhaps a brown or another such earthtone. You need contrast so your models will pop. Green on green just ends up being a blur. Look at some jungle photos on Google Image search. There's more than just green in those places and you can use the opportunity to really create something special.
The green camo also looks unrealistic - much like a clown costume compared to the muted green for the rest of him. I agree a muted color scheme would work best. Think of trying tans, browns, or even greys and you will have a much tighter looking figure. At the very least I would darken the green more and maybe add a few other earthy colors to the camo pattern to offset it from the rest of the greens you have used.
Your skintones look very good. Great job on the skin!!
Good luck and happy painting!

usually camo patterns work with the superposition of different tones. Those superpositions can be done with stripes.
i have posted this pic to help you to visualize how camo patterns are made.
You have to choose how to develop your camo painting, from darker/lighter colors or lighter/darker colors.
first combination (dark/light) is used for almost all terrain (woodland, jungle, concrete) etc, while the second combination (light/dark) is used for desert or arctic camo.
to develop a real camo scheme, you have to imagine how your battle terrain is composed (barren wastes, arctic, tundra, dense jungle, etc.) and then, you have to imagine which colors would help your soldiers to melt into the terrain.
remember... camo was developed to not to be seen by the enemy, to avoid loses.
hope that helped.
