For some reason, most people have the idea that thatch is a golden yellowy colour. Probably because of the hay/straw connection!

That may be true for new thatch, but after a few months it actually turns grey. I would experiment with starting with a very dark grey base coat, a couple of dry brush coats of dark grey, followed by a light dry brush of brown. Seemed to work OK on 6mm buildings….
