    Hi Belg,

    That looks just great to me. How about just a little weathering?

    Excellent work Belg. Instead of colour for the blocks why not just do a wash of some water mixed with black ink to give a bit more texture. Black dye would work too.

    It looks FANTASTIC Belg!!!

    I would agree with Matthyro that a thinned black wash would finish off things nicely!

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    I would also recommend the black ink wash. The foundation/first floor looks like cut limestone blocks to me - they are almost always a nice grey tone.

    The colour is just perfect Belg. Looks very real like it has been rained on and sun burn't for a year or two.

    Inspiring Job!

    Beautiful, Belg! This is exactly what I'd like to do for my layout. Hope you don't mind if I use your excellent work as a reference. :)
