Hey there I use codex and/or shadow grey for urban cement and slate/shale colours.
different shades are acheived by mixing them with eachother and with touches of black and white. Then with black and white highlights.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Well, here's the deal: With guard, you are gonna want a good paint, that's cheap, easy to use, and looks good. So, on the cheap and easy to use part, I decided not to use GW's Codex Grey. Instead I went with a generic brand (delta Ceramcoat) Rain Grey. All you have to do is drybrush it on, and you're good to go! Now, for an urban camo look:
1) SPRAY PRIME BLACK! This is the most important step.
2) Drybrush the grey. The Ceramcoat paints are good, because you don't have to add water like you do with GW paints. And they are very opaque.
3) Take chaos Black, or any black really, I use an Ebony (which is a really really really dark grey), and just do stripes across the arms, legs, and chest. Do it with your smallest brush, and maybe consider just doing it to the fabric parts of the armor, and leaving the plates the grey color.
4) Take a brown, and do the same thing as you did with the black. Be careful, let a good portion of the brown show through.
5) (optional) add white in the same manner, but even less of it.
This is a tank I did with that style, but it had a brown-grey base, and it had a lot more colors. But you can see the general idea:

142nd Cadian, Stationed Planet Skyfall B
4th Brigade, 1st Battalion, 1st Co.
'The Pathfinders', Drop Team - 6
Pssst.... give me kudos....
Cammo, eh? Hmm.. call I can say is; KISS [Keep It Simple Stupid] no offence meant but it is something people can often over look with cammo schemes. You ideally need a solid base for the gear [city would be a dark grey] then just do patches of lighter grey, white and black. These can be overlapping patches - no need to be circles just random patches - and such. I would suggest using no more than three to four colours.
Googling cammo schemes will give an idea of a layout.
