Anyone have some tips for convincing stone? Specifically unpainted ashlar masonry or brick? I'm close but just not able to shake a plastic look.

not sure what to say other than to look for references:

Get rid of reflections and lower the spec/gloss almost completely. That should drop the plastic look. Create custom textures for things like color and bump. Stain and discolor. That's the key for things like bricks.

Maybe use a mia_roundcorners texture plugged into the Overall Bump for the shader for rounding the edges of the bricks/stones.
