I think it's ok to have/use a lighter shade of base grey for KS4 (and KS3, for that matter). After all, in KS3/4 we are talking about fieldstone and quarried rocks for buildings that are exposed to the elements, and would be lighter due to constant sun exposure.

KS1/2/5 environments don't really see the light of day (generally), so would likely be slightly darker. Wetter environments even more so.
I half agree, but what I ordered in KS4 was really only to add variety to my KS1 dungeons and the CBS system. Large round rooms and such for K 1 (maybe a tower every so often) and roofs and CBS advanced addition pieces for KS3 variation. I wasn't monetarily able to afford a "castle" so I just got the pieces that I could add to the previous KS's. No Castle Walls of any kind, accessories, battlements or even any mountain pieces (but I do want the Erinthor Mountains in the future, if affordable for me). I will eventually be trying to match the paint of all my KS stone walls to match the Resin line of dungeons, when I get to finishing the paint on them. So having them match the base color isn't a deal breaker it adds a step for some of us. I sure hope KS5 will have the darker color dwarvenite like KS1.

Didn't KS3 have a different dwarvenite color than KS1 and KS2? It was a lighter grey, I swear.
I didn't notice too much material color difference between KS 1,2 or 3. Nothing like KS 4 has been shown here. Guess I'll have to go to Lowe's and pick up some base paint for the Castle pieces. Was it shown or mentioned that a gloss base paint is the match or semi-gloss? There is a big difference in the thickness of pieces for modding's sake, between KS 1 and 2, but then KS 3 was a whole different animal.
Still have no notice for anything shipped for KS 4 yet.
@Animesensai,
I'm looking at my KS3 stuff and the stone floors and crenellations are definitely a lighter grey. I believe it has to do with the look of the buildings they were going for in City Builder, and by tinting the PVC material itself it's then possible to remove a whole step of painting... that would be my best educated guess as to the lighter colour.

@William,
I got myself the sample container which only comes in a satin finish. It's 212ml and looks the same as the pic that was posted earlier in this thread.

Ouch. Three "dungeon grey" I wonder what KSV will be?

I do not really know if it matters as I paint my own stuff, but wondering.

I will have to give this a try. I have been using the Pokorny black. It works great, but this might be better. I like that Pokorny black is airbrush friendly. I worry this may be too thick and my not thin well. I have had that problem with some craft paints. I like this color though and the price so I might give it a try. I have not had any problem with paint staying tacky but have had with some brands of varnish.
It's effectively house paint, so if you have any experience with that in your airbrush then you'll have a good basis from which to work.

But now apparently we have two dungeon grey colors. Is the DF base grey a good match for KSIV dungeon grey?

Once I have my stuff I will look.

KS4 has two different colors for battlements and crenelations (sort of a purplish grey) and the rest of the castle (a more neutral mid-tone grey).

Here's a good shot of what I mean:
