I built some ruins for CoD and woud like to paint them. I would appreciate some advice on color selection, for the walls, floro, rubbles, etc. I am new at it and have not done too well so far.... I forgot to say it should look great and not take time to paint....
Drybrushing is your friend. I would say different shades of grey works, with details in metallic colours. Brown can be a good helper to add to a more worn look.
The Adeptus Mechanicus-buildings looks best when painted in mostly metallic colours, particularly bronze, copper and brass.
Da' Camel is right, drybrushing is key.
But he forgot to say one thing...
big brushes will give you better, way more even coverage. I'm talking 1.5-2" in size, preferably round or oval in profile, not flat or pointed.

I'd just use cheap paint for CoD stuff, we used 5 colors andfor any detail we used our GW paints or Vallejo.
We used white, black, gray, gold, and brown. Thats about it. For Bronze we mixed gold and brown with a drop of red.
Yes key to doing gothic buildings is just DRYBRUSHING!!! And by layers too for contrast, heavy drybrushing of grey followed with light drybrushing of white makes good stone; bronze followed with light drybrushing of gold for sheen.
