Read a number of reviews stating that one of the Army Painter brand washes is straight up devlan mud. Here's a link to a review:

Looks pretty close.

Just make your own washes. Paint + future floor wax = wash. Use a dropper bottle and you have the same consistent shade.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll probably try the future floor wax idea. That gives a much broader range of colors.

FFW is shiny. If you want a low-gloss option, look for a medium. I use Liquitex, but there are many. Obviously as an art supply, they will cost more than floor wax, but still relatively cheap.

Eh, I always use restore dull coat when my models are done, so it's not a big deal. Cheap = king

The Army Painter line of washes are a dead on replacement of the no longer available Citadel.
