British Grey

Humbrol Authentic Colour MC4

British Grey, Humbrol Authentic Colour MC4.

Humbrol Authentic Colour MC4 »British Grey«, the medium grey colour recommended for trousers and coats worn by British troops of the Napoleonic Wars, compared to our own mixtures of »British Grey« from three parts Tamiya XF-20 »Medium Grey« and one part Tamiya XF-2 »White«, or equal parts of PRIMAcryl 13.789 »Neutral Grey« and 13.101 »Titanium White«.

Vallejo Model Color 70.836 »London Grey« is darker and more bluish, it appears to be a better match for the stone grey trousers of British Napoleonic infantry. Stone grey is easy to mix by lightening neutral grey, ivory black or carbon black with white; colours that are always on the wet palette when painting miniatures, so an additional tin of “Grey” is an not really necessary.
