Default Grey Spray Paint for Fortifications

Hello, I want to quickly paint my Fortress of Redemption, Imperial Bastions, and Aegis Defense Lines. I'm looking for a spray paint primer thats dark grey. Kinda like the color below:

Or something close, but I want it to be a good primer cause I'll be painting the details. The closest I came up with is Uniform Grey Primer from Army Painter. They also have a Wolf Grey but its more of a blue-grey for Space Wolves. Anyone have any suggestions? Or is Uniform Grey the best I'll find. Thank you in advance.

Have guns, will travel...

Have you tried using a finish metallic or stone texture spray? Rustoleom makes some pretty decent sprays that I think turn out a pretty good finished texture. There are different stones, metals, beaten copper, steel, all sorts. Saves some time on those Big Fortification jobs.

You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with till you understand who's in rutting command here! -Jayne

I've used the Army Painter Uniform Grey. Great value, goes on well, never had a problem with any of their sprays. Give it a wash, then dry brush codex grey, which it is a perfect match for. Quick and simple, but then again you might want to put in a bit more effort on the fortress.

YOu could also try Humbrol Acrylic Spray, tank grey might work.
