    This may have or may have not come up b4, but who in thier right mind uses Codex Grey for anything? I mean, the stuff is almost an exact mach to the Grey plastic under it! I got stuck in a hole painting someones 13th company with it, ansd soon realized my mistake.

    I know there are plasitc models that come in colors other that grey, i've seen green and purple myself. Does grey exist s that you can say "Ah-ha! Now you look loke everyone else! Now I shall base coat you BLACK so no one will know the difference! Muh-hahaha!"

    ?

    If someone has any PRACTICAL uses for Codex grey, aside form the bottle being an okey paperweight, please post here. I'd hate to have to start using It on my Nids by accident or something.

    Funny you should mention it but both my main armies are based around the colour Codex Grey...

    Here's an example of my Space Marine Captain and a Terminator.

    And here's an example of my Krieg Death Korps Lieutenant and a Krieg Death Korps Guardsman...

    Codex Grey is one of my favorite colours... It works great on both black and white undercoat and looks awesome...

    Hope this anwered your question...

    I have a great use for Codex Grey. I use it to paint things grey.
    Do you mean that you DON'T paint you grey stuff? You just leave the bare plastic? I think there's a reason that this haven't come up before.

    Its great for highlighting black, shadow Grey works well also. When painting an area white I usually paint it codex Grey then white.

    Codex grey is great for drybrusching buildings, start with black spray drybrusch codex grey and highligt with bleached bone - looks great.

    I also use it for highligting tails and manes on my black horses.

    I use Codex Grey a ton. I use it as a basecoat for all my grey parts, espescially skulls, or as the base coat for my GK's. For highlighting black, I prefer shadow grey, as it is not as stark a contrast. I undercoat all my minis with either black or white ( depending on the primary color of the model), so the fact that codex grey looks almost exactly like the plastic grey makes no difference to me. Hop ethat helps.
