Filling space with irregularly-shaped bricks or stones is a non-trivial problem,
one I've often thought about but never seriously attempted! However, discrete
layers of different brick sizes would be feasible without effort (if
architecturally realistic!).

Arches and window frames made more carefully from larger custom components would
be my next step I think. More open structures like cloisters or church-style
windows would look great as ruins.
