looks a bit too isometric, and needs to be bashed about a bit with grass and cracks and a symbol

But, we can't be too religious

we need generic; or some TMW back-story religious symbols.

Yoshuhara had a few ideas for tombstones from the old Cemetery Map thread

Perhaps the TMW symbol can be incorporated on the grave stones

my opinion,

assuming this graveyard is relatively small...

gravestones are not natural. They were put there by people; who tend to put graves in straight lines. I completely agree that there should be some stones that are not aligned due to ground movements or whatever, but if you make a headstone that is off-set somehow, you will need to make another of that same headstone facing another direction for realism.

Anyhow, I think this cemetery should have the traditional rounded slab headstone for 95%, maybe 3 to 4 versions of it in various states, then one moderately bigger looking headstone (repeated twice, maybe 3 times) and a mausoleum/crypt.

And a few flat ones that go on the ground.

It's all in the texture my friend, look at Yoshuhara's stones and the texturing on them - that stereotypical "boring" shape is perfect!
