Painting halfling allies... Update

I never seem to be able to come up with a satisfying paint scheme by myself. I dont seem to have the colour intuition. Anything that I've painted that looks any good, has normally been copied from games workshop.

Anyway I've tried painting my first halfling. Bearing in mind these guys have been in storage for the best part of 20 years, I'm finding it hard to come up with a halfling-esque colour scheme.

I'm not particularly happy with his brown trousers and would appreciate some ideas!!!

Update:

I've lightened his tunic, and darkened his trousers and cloak. Apart from sorting out his dodgy eyes I think I'm ready to go...

I'm thinking of doing 3 different units of 10, so I'll have to come up with some more paint schemes...

Personally, I think he would look good with more neutral tones. I guess I would make the brown of the pants a little darker, as well as the green, and maybe make his shirt an off-white instead of yellow. That seems to fit the humble, down-to-earth Halfling, at least in my mind.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

What about a dark green, darker than the cloak colour? It will give them a scout look,and tone in the brighter yellowish/buff jacket and the green of the cloak, belt, and hat.
