The sand stone. You inspired me to make terrain pieces like them and I have 2 pieces done :).

Sweet!
Primed with Krylon H2O spray paint. (not a real primer)
I based the sand a golden sandy color(Antique Gold- Americana).
Base the rocks a dark brown.(Coffee Bean- Folk Art)
Stipple the sand color(thinned) over rocks. By thinning it will gain some transparency.
Wash the rocks with purple.
Dry brush rocks with Antique Gold.
Dry brush everything Sand- Americana. Light on the rocks so it doesn't over power.
Final dry brush of Sand: Wicker White- Folk Art. Concentrate on the edges where the sand meets the rocks and randomly in patches here or there for variation. Very lightly with this step as too much will make it appear chalky. For the most part avoid the rocks with this color.

Good luck and make sure to show us your progress.

Awesome! Thanks. Would you be able to match the colour of the paints you listed to the GW ones? I don't have any paints besides them :(

Golden sandy color/Antique Gold= Tausept Ochre
Coffee Bean= Scorched Brown, or any dark brown
Sand= 50:50 Tausept Ochre:Bleached Bone
Wicker White= Skull White

GW paints are too expensive to use on terrain dude. The craft paints I listed sell at most art supply stores for about $1.

I know that :P. I was going to go to the dollar store for the paints - I just needed a better reference to colour that I could actually look at :P.
