    Can someone suggest a paint that is a dark dark grey, almost black grey?

    Like the guns or boots here:

    I used Humbrol 67 for rubber assault boats

    I’d use Vallejo 995 German Grey myself. Might be a little lighter than that shown but I tend to go a shade or so lighter on smaller figures so it depends on the scale you are painting.

    For a very dark grey, almost black, I use 995 (“Gris allemand”) or 862 (“Gris noir”) from Prince August (that’s Vallejo for you).

    I would recommend Army Painter Warpaints Hardened Carapace WP1430 or Necromancer Cloak WP1443. For a more metallic look, there is of course Gun Metal WP1131.  Here is a copy of the AP colour chart, with the dark greys in the top row, and Gun Metal in the bottom row:

    For a Matt finish I’d go along with Les Hammond’s recommendation of Humbrol Panzer Grey, but for weapons and the like I would tend towards Gunmetal.

    All the best,

    John.

    Vallejo panzer grey, or “German Grey” as they call it, dries almost black, as does its Humbrol equivalent.

    Try Railmatch weathered black. My favourite paint at the moment.

    Another vote for Vallejo German Grey, which i always use instead of black.

    Vallejo German Grey — it’s the new black.

    All the best,

    John.
