I would try this....


Whist it is a WW2 paint set, it is the right German field grey for the WW1 and to the best of my knowledge the colours don't change much between the wars.

I've used it before you see and it seemed to work

Well done on your buy

I don't know why I formed this impression, but I've always understood that in the First World War the German fieldgrey varies according to which region the regiment was raised from. For example bluer in Saxony and greener in Bavaria.

Vallejo do a specific colour which is slightly browner and greyer than the battlefront paintsets - ie the Vallejo German Uniform.

Since I am working on the Knotel plate of one of the Pfalz regiments IIRC then this is a suitable colour especially if dry brushed with sky grey. The uniform seems paler than its contemporaries.
