Oh, very nice, glad I inspired you.

I love the hints of purple, blue, and green you've got going on on most of your stones, it looks great and adds to that weird fantasy flavour subtly.

I'll gladly join the chorus and say that these look really good. Fantastic!
Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.

Again thanks for the compliments all.

For my terrain I prefer a very plain sepia pallet, then I use colour to bring attention to individual details.  In this case the Megaliths are that "detail" so I was trying to add some subtle surface colour using thinned ink filters.  There are reds, blues, orange, sepia, yellow and black painted randomly over the whole surface.  A final highlight of khaki over the coloured filters tied them together and a final green filter over the top to simulate moss.
