I am lucky enough to have served in areas where this building style was popular. The construction materials are roughly the same here in Argentina. Wandering around the city I could personally see current construction and building being leveled.
I have nailed down a painting technique for these buildings. Now I can start to bang them out quickly. (It is recorded here for future reference.)
One; Whole thing is washed in watered down Army Painter Strong tone. Any rubble washed in Dark tone.
Two; Light sporadic dry brush of Vallejo 120, followed by even less and more sporadic dry brush of Foundry 67C.
Three; Any exposed wall is block in with Vallejo 146. Same area hit with Vallejo 139 picking out bricks within. All windows and open doors are done with Foundry 101C.
Four; Burnt earth and a black pigment is used to recreate the battle and fire damage.
Details in red or blue, flocking and sealed.
