Spray match for Ulthuan Grey?


Recommended Posts

I find myself using Ulthuan Grey a lot for basecoat, but struggle with it in the airbrush.

 

Does anyone know a close match in the Vallejo range? Or a rattle can would be just as good - maybe Tamiya?  Any ideas welcome.

 

It’s a fairly cool off-white, not far off Corax White.

There are a few conversion charts around the 'net. According to Dakkadakka's, close matches for Ulthuan Grey are Vallejo Model Color Ghostly Grey and Vallejo Game Color Ghost Grey.

Thanks, I think that’s Ghost Grey (Game Color) and Flat Aluminium (Model Colour). I will look for those - I’ll leave the thread ‘unsolved’ for now for rattlecan suggestions.

Ha! You're right, I was off by a column. That's what I get for trying to be productive before the first coffee of the day :laugh:

I'm not aware of any. :sad: I think Ulthuan Grey is possibly a hard one to match, because it's not neutral?

 

As you've got an airbrush, would the Ulthuan Grey from GW's "Air" line be any good? From what I can see, the usual suspects don't have a good match - Colour Forge's "Ghoul Grey" is supposed to be a match to Grey Seer, Vallejo's Grey and Wolf Grey aren't right, nor is any of The Army Painter's :sad: 

 

++EDIT: Ghost Grey was one of the colours which got cut in Vallejo's Game Colour reformulation last year - Wolf Grey is probably the closest match in the current line.

Thanks, I have Ulthuan Grey air but it dried out very quickly and is a pain to transfer to the dropper bottle, so had my fingers crossed for a short-cut.

Seems like Flat Aluminium might have been discontinued as well (or they didn’t like the confusion with all their metallic colours). I see they have an “off white” 70.820 which looks promising.
