I think I am going to settle on this for the predominently grey scheme. Will look to change the battlements and walls to this as well.

Still planning to do a sandstone theme for variety.

I also did my CBS in the same tones as I did my DT and Caverns. I like the idea (wish I had thought of it!) of adding cuts to the "long stones". The white grout must have taken a while to do! I don't like the contrast but the effort must have taken some doing! LOVE the roof tops - I am going to steal this idea for mine.

They say no plan ever survives contact with the enemy.... in this case that would be misleading hotel lighting, a new set of (as yet untried) washes, and impatience.

Back home and under my hobby room lights, what I feared was the case proves to be - the stone work paint scheme is way too dark, washes were too thick and dark, and my dry brushing efforts to mitigate that were dismal.

So back to the drawing board.

I have a couple of candidate themes in progress...

I have also cut slots on some of the very long stones to break up the floor edge.

Thanks guys.

General consensus is that the slate is too close in tone to stonework, so I am going to redo the roofs. Much easier than redoing all the stone. :shock:

I'm going to split out the roofs into three different paint schemes. Hopefully this won't bite me in the long run, in trying to do larger buldings.

Here is one set, with inital repaint done. I have since put a wash on them, but it is still wet, so won't photograph well until dry.

I am looking to a version of example below, only a tad lighter and brighter.
Pleased with results so far.

Great job pacarat, wish I were 1/10th as fast.
I love your roofs, kinda wish you would adjust the walls instead, but that's my measly opinion. I also understand it's probably less work modifying the roofs over the zillion walls, posts and other stone surfaces. I really like your varied brick too, not sure I'll get that detailed, but it sure looks good. Thanks :)

Very nice!!!

I love the various sewer piece usage throughout... using the convex corners as decoration (a pedestal for a statue?) is very creative. The dwarven pillar usage on the back side of the gate is genius!

I kinda thought you would probably end up altering the roof color slightly... just to set if off from the buildings. The colors are most excellent, but as you say... too close in color to the structures.

The streets are amazing. I love the sluice usage. Very well done!

The sidewalk brick color looks awesome! I will have to go back and review how you did those (you did post that, right?) They look brand new!!! If they were mine, I would consider applying a dirty wash over them (or something) to make the town to look lived in. ;-)

I can't wait to have an evening or two to dabble with painting mine...

Ok, back at home, so can now test stone works with streets in good lighting.


I think I will be tweaking the roof colors some - too close in tone to the walls. (No surprise since I used same colors.)
