So, my latest diorama, is going to be an Ossiarch Bonereapers Necropolis by the stormy ghoulish sea. The only thing is, I don't know what to make the walls look like.

In the battletome,  it says that all the Necropolises are meant to be very similar looking, and the walls in the art are made of stone and bone. This makes me feel like I should do them like this, but I don't really know, because I think they look cool, but aren't that interesting.

Another option is to make them solely out of bone, which was my original plan, but would be very difficult to construct.

The last is to make them out of Nadirite, or at least plated in nadirite. For those of you who don't know, nadirite is the material that Ossiarch Bonereapers' shields, armour and swords. This could look really cool, and I could do some reflections of things outside, and it would be fairly simple to make. The problem is that it would be incredibly difficult to paint well.

The thing is that I can justify it not being stone and bone, so I am torn about which one to do. So the answer is up to you. Please tell me what you think, and whichever gets the most votes, will be completed.

Well the artwork for their cities in the battletome and the GW converted walls and fort were all stone constructions with varying amounts of bone overlaying the construction, for both decorative and functional purposes. The terrain feature is almost all stone in construction as well.

So I'd say go for stone and then overlay with bones for detailing.

Bone and stone walls with Nadirite gates. 

That's a great idea!

If the votes go to bone and stone, like they are at the moment, I'll definitely do that.

Neither can I, but I don't know how long it will take, because it will be a big project, and I've only just started.

The votes were clear, I am now going to make the walls of my Ossiarch Necropolis to look like bone and stone, and also, because a few people voted nadirite, I am going to use @Nick Stockton 's idea of doing nadirite gates with eerie reflections
