the dark base and the white triangles are good, however personally I would add a second base colour. It wouldn't have to be a stark contrast, just enough to break up the dark grey background colour a bit. Maybe a mixture of your current base colour and Codex Grey. Then repaint the triangles if you cover any up.
Hope this helps!
For 'urban' tank camo, it is all about straight, harsh edges.
There is a pretty good example of some over on the GW website (*linky*), it is definately worth checking it out.
Basically, use a lighter grey in jagged-ish camo patterns over the whole body of the tank, then add the white 'dags' over the top of that.
Finally, the paint looks very, very thick on the side of the tank, do you water your paints down? It will really enhance your painting, as properly watered paint doesn't leave brush marks!

i'd say make it three colored, black white and also some grey or greyish green, it'll make it more like a camo-paintjob instead of a damaged paintjob
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

I hope you're not using Tamiya. When i used Tamiya, my models alway came out to thick, and the paint was very stubborn and would not thin down easily.
Also, I'm working on my forgeworld Macharius Heavy Tank with Battle Cannon and I have a grey baseboat as well. Once the basecoat was on, I just kept drybrushing it to bring out the imperfections and edges, as well as giving corners a "shinier" look. I am very pleased on how it came out, and even though it is still only one color, it LOOKS like a tank.
Also, just a thought. Since there are so many flat surfaces on your tank, you could try making a stencil from plasticar or cardboard or something so that you get nice, neat, clean triangles for your camo.
