Default Which type of grey to paint Grey Knights?

As I see from the box, I'm suppose to paint the GK's armor mithril silver but then it doesn't really seem right. So, I want to ask you experts what kind of grey to paint grey knights.

Well, it depends on what definition of 'grey' armour that you want your 'Grey Knights' to be. That means there are three ways you go about it; Metallic, NMM, or just normal grey.

So which one would it be?

Personally i think the codex grey would give them a nice mat grey look.

Fortress gray with codex gray highlights can work. But why paint them gray? It'll make 'em stand out more if you paint them in a brand-new crazy scheme. I've been painting mine Orange and blue and it's great and gets more interest.

I painted mine codex grey, and they turned out pretty good, so that's what I voted for. But really, it's up to you.

Yeah, the box is ALWAYS WRONG.

It told me to paint my kroot camo green, and he looks like a green chicken :-[

(Or was that the codex?)

Except that fortress gray is actually lighter than codex gray, so codex gray couldn't be a highlight for it.
