They do look awesome. The fezs are well done and the gray looks appropriately military.
How was it to use procreate? I've never tried it. Mostly I'm wondering whether it's as sticky as GS or as unsticky as milliput?
And when you say old, how long has it been on your shelf? I've had sticks of milliput last 5 or 6 years with no ill effects.

@Mad Grot Docsnik, I guess Procreate is in between Greenstuff and Milliput. Not sure how old the Procreate is. At least 5-8 years.

 

@Badfang Brassaxe, I am liking the grey a lot too. The 13th SS Mountain Division (Handschar) made up of Bosnian Muslims, used maroon in parade and grey fez in the field. The German Askari from WWI used khaki (yellowish) in the field, see pics below.

 

If I was really clever, I would make decals for the fez to simulate some badge device or sew on, but I am uncertain as I feel it would not work.

 

Just to clarify, these pics are to get ideas of colors for a fantasy space game, not implying support for organizations. Plus Orks are the freedom faction in 40K. Freeeeeedom!
