As anyone with even a vague interest in the forces of the Third reich will know, you can paint these to be fielded as regular German Army troops in field grey uniforms, interspersed with the occasional garment made from Italian camouflage material and the trademark zeltbahn ponchos. Or you could paint these battle-hardened troops as the Waffen-SS in their distinctive camouflage patterned uniform.
