The sharp-eyed amongst you will notice that the rust is exactly the same technique from the previous post but with substantially less boltgun metal drybrushed over the top. Just to remind everyone of the method for the rust painting, here it is:
Essentially it is a progressive stippled highlight that follows this pattern:
1) Basecoat: Dark Flesh
2) Heavy Stipple: Vermin Brown
3) Stipple: Macharius Solar Orange
4) Drybrush: Boltgun Metal
5) Wash: Badab Black or Devlan MudThe degree of "rustiness" is controlled by stages 4 and 5. A lighter drybrush of Boltgun Metal will achieve a rustier vehicle (at stage 3 it looks completely rusted). Replacing Black with Brown in the wash stage will also achieve a more ramshackle appearance.
The close-up below illustrates the finished effect nicely:
Tomorrow I'll put up some shots of one of my favourite Orks of all time, Boss Snikrot and the converted Kommandos that go with him. Till then...
