I picked up eight half pint jars of a Valspar acrylic satin mixed in this color today at my local Lowes. Tested and confirmed as an almost perfect match.

Best news was that the samples cost me a whopping $.70 each. :)

Much thanks for the tip.

I finally found a paint that's an (almost) exact match to the DwarvenForge "Dungeon Gray". I got it at Lowes "Fired Earth" 6011-1 and you can get a decent amount of paint as a sample for $4. It's satin finish and I think gloss would match better, but you can't get samples in gloss. Now that I know the color matches I will likely go back for a quart of gloss.

There is a subtle difference in bright light with magnification, but in my hands I have to feel along the edges to find where the painted spot is. Not even joking.

Base coat with this and then use the official DF paints for a perfect match.
Excellent information! Thanks!

For limited amounts I find Vallejo grey black to be a good match. Expensive though for big coverage.

Awesome find! That will be perfect to base coat my custom sculpts and other bits I want to match paint wise!

Here is an unpainted tile that I dabbed some paint onto with my finger to check the color match:

There is paint in 2 places... Maybe more lighting will help spot the difference:

Just in case you still can't see it:
