I've used Floquil Boxcar Red on a couple of buildings. They had a dark
brick colour from that. You can then use a wash of acrylic paint flowed
into the mortar lines to bring out more of the detail.

How about mixing your own color?????
(red + gray, red + tan, red + brown, etc...)
Or better yet...*several* colors, in order to give
it a *realistic* "multi-hued" look (as opposed to
the "let's match the FS paint chips" look).

I've used 'em all. Highly recommended.
But...! Don't just spray one colour. By all means spray a base colour, but
then pick out single bricks in darker and lighter shades. Then drybrush
other bricks in darker shades. When all is dry, mix a very thin mixture of
Cement Rendering and wash it over the whole building. The mixture will lie
in the cracks between the bricks and will provide a convincing
representation of a real brick structure.
