    I would stick to the grey color and sprayed on as grey not weathered to grey. It is the sand background that alters the visualization of the color. When they came over here they looked to have been recently sprayed and I was thinking that they would have weathered after all these months which they did not. 'Caso mai' it has got more of a bluish tint than a green/brownish tint.Have a look at the link, different color schemes but you can still recognize a dark brown, and there is also one with grey/sand/green scheme.
