I have to agree. What paint did you use?

Really really effective.
But I do think painting each stone is a little over the top

Thanks all, lol Mr B, just stipple and dry brushing.

I started off adding Woodland Scenics course dark brown ballast (this is good to imitate rust stains).
I mixed Vallejo Iraqi Sand and Black together and used that to colour the ballast, mix extra sand for lighter effect and extra black for darker tones.
