While it works on its own, I wonder if it will look out of place if everything else is concrete. What would be the history behind it that led it to be made of another material?
I have several grey buildings, but was kind of planning on painting all the ones of these and similar design in this color. Not sure it would work though. Basing will be grey brownish.No specific history though - was only thinking visually.
It depends on your aesthetic sensibilities. My OCD is pretty high, so I tend to go whole-hog on themed stuff, and if I had one sandstone piece, they'd all become sandstone and a desert table would result. Actually, that'd be kind of cool, thematically, especially if you made them carved from mesas or something. That way you could have vast deep canyons and carved buildings on the faces of the cliffs and/or mesas, like Petra in Jordan.
Cheers - tru that would be really cool, and a project for the future :D
I like it! Definitely thing having all the buildings on a table match up can look unified, but in real life it's rare that every building is exactly the same shade. A mix of concrete, sandstone, painted flakboard, etc. may have a bit more of a ramshackle look that can give the table an equally interesting personality. It's definitely up to the individual, but I personally prefer a mix of colors - they don't have to be garish, even just different tones of grey or tones of sandstone can look awesome!
Thanks - I agree, I think I'll mix and match to keep it interesting. I'm overall going for an Industrial Gothic look.
Like it. Any real city is made up of dozens of color variations as various materials gain and lose favor over time. Might consider having some "rubble" around the base also be sandstone to make it look more like it belongs there.
Thank you, true - I'll need more rubble :D
