    For a gun metal effect you want a fairly neutral grey, so I think white, codex and black is all you need. You could add some Devlan Mud wash to the darker areas to give it a grimier look, perhaps.

    I use Charadon granite, codex grey, space wolf grey, white. I use the SW grey as it is slightly blue which I feel suggests that it is reflecting a blue sky.
    What you leave behind is not what is written on your tombstone but what is written in the heart of others.
