I was wondering if anyone has a good idea for making a nice, not too off-scale texture to put on the outside of building walls (bunkers, houses etc). I guess I should mention it's for 40k terrain.
I've read about pulling the card from one side of foamboard. Then there's the good old mixing sand, pvc glue and water. Could one use ordinary sand, as found on a beach or similar, or would that sand be too large?
If you use fine sand, so yea from the beach, and glue it on to the wall, then paint more pva on when it's dry to seal it.
If the sand is fine enough it will look great.

sand and PVA glue works, though make sure to sift the sand to get rid of all the rocks / larger pieces.
Textured spraypaint works well too, though you have to make sure you've sealed the building first.
Spackle (the stuff you use to fix holes in walls) works well, though i'd probably water it down a little.
If you're going for a carved look, i've had good luck with plasticard / cardboard for the shapes, then pva glue to seal the whole kit.
Grab a pail of sand from the local playground and sift it through a colander, which will get you some very nice fine sand. You can also use the stone patterned spray paint as suggested above.
