looks quite good. I think that all it needs is maybe some more rubble on the base and you need to do a bit more drybrushing to bring the detail out a bit. This is almost exactly the same as what i am doing at the moment (will post pics asap). Good Job , a few more buildings like that and you will have your self a nice little COD table.

not bad, I would suggest taking off the little circles off the sprue pieces though, but the idea of cuttin up the sprue is pretty cool. Also yeah, I'd drybrush a darker color on there to give it more depth. Great start though, jsut a little more needed.

you can never have enough rubble, like the sprue idea too.
under that if you had some textured paint that might have worked to your advantage.
sandbags too are great around window frames and open areas if you fancy fortifying it a bit!
Nice work, I have several similar buildings myself. I got some foamcore and before I knew it I had half a city. It's easy once you get going. I still need to base and paint them though!
I think people go crazy over the new CoD buildings from GW but the way I see it not every building in an Imperial city is going to be a building of the Ecclesiarchy, Administratum or Mechanicus, some will be simple hab-units or parts of the local infrastructure, and less ostentatious foamcore ruins look better for these, and they make the GW buildings stand out more as well.
Not to mention the fact you can create some much bigger buildings with foamcore without spending hundreds of pounds...
Edit: Pounts? Am I a vampire now?
If you look on the GW UK site (link below) you will find printable and photocopyable templates for cityfight buildings with 3 different shaped windows (including gothic). You stick them to foamcore (best done with that 3M removable spray mount stuff available from art shops) and then cut where the lines are, simple. I made the gothic building (but curved windows are not very easy) and it looks pretty good. Plan to do two others now. OK, so it looks pretty much like your version does, but cuts out (pardon the pun) the measuring process.
