Do people like the neutral grey stonework or the one with a bit of color?

Both are good, the bit of colour adds interest, particularly if you have a lot of wall Undecided

Hmmmm.   

I'm quite undecided.   My first attempt was with the buff color and it  immediately impressed me as the way to go.   But I got distracted and picked up the wrong bottle to do the gate and at the time it seemed a bit off.

But the weird thing is that when they are side by side like that I like the flat grey better.

Hmmmmm.

I like both, as well. Smiley

How close are the colours in the photo to the real thing, Cookie ?
I think sometimes a photo can look 'better' than the real thing.....and other times, just the opposite.

Funny you should say that.  I took these out to my local shop to get an in-person opinion and also to see them under the lights there.

At the counter, the lighting was such that I could hardly tell the difference.  Under some of the brighter lights you could and both looked good.

I think that I'll go with the buff color and then do varying amounts of dry brushing of the more neutral one.  Should give the whole thing a bit of variation.  But first I'll have to test out the scheme on these Osgiliath ruins that I picked up.

Did a bit of dry brushing to get the base color on the stone walls.  After some experimentation it seems that the best method was to put enough pressure so that the sides of bristles are doing the work. .  Also put a base goat on the wood floors .  Just noticed that I forgot the wood doors....
For some unknown reason I decided that the tile floors need a pattern to break them up.

They look really good. I still find dry brushing with acrylics a lot harder than enamel paints

Take care

I thought it was just me! I haven't had a good dry brush since I started using acrylics. I've switched to weathering powders.

I've used the Humbrol, but are now using Wilder from Amazon.
