Just curious if anyone knows of any alternatives to the GWS roughcoat? Alternate products or home brew suggestions would be awesome. I plan to be painting some buildings in the near future and would just like to know what options are available.
PVA glue (americans call this 'white glue', I believe), water and sand. Mix to personal preference and slap on to scenery. Works great and dries rock solid plus it's dirt cheap.
You can probably find other textured sprays in hobby and hardware stores, too.

No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Rustoleum makes a textured spray paint as well that's a bit cheaper than the GW can (I've found it for $7US vs... $10US for the GW stuff?) It's very minimally textured, I think GW's stuff is a bit more coarse (from pictures I've seen) and I know using glue & sand would give you more texture. If you're looking to not obscure many details, however, it's a good way to go.
You play your game, I'll play mine.
Rustoleum as already mentioned as well as another brand I can't think of at the moment are available at Wallmart. I think I paid around $5 or $6 for them.
Now offering an affordable Tournament Legal Quality Commission pricing. Find out more here!
Thanks for the input, everyone. I'll look into these options and if I find any that weren't mentioned I'll inform the group.
