I've decided to repaint my ugly tanks after getting some inspiration from alot of pictures of pro-painted tanks.
A few of them has the dirty look to it, and a few random places with rust and oxidization, mainly in the corners, crevices, and dripping off from the bolts.
Can anyone show their technique on doing this? or a tutorial would be even better

While my digital camera is down atm, I can tell you that using a variety of blends of tin and copper paints over greymetal paints works nicely, as does chestnut inks over greymetal.

I've been adding lots and lots of rust to my Nurgle army. Now, I wouldn't call myself a pro, but my stuff looks pretty good.
What I've found to be the easiest is drybrushing (and on larger surfaces, it does help to do so over a metallic silver) a base brown color. I use Vallejo paints, and the name of the brown I use for that has long worn off the bottle, but whatever you'd have as your basic brown would work.
Over the top of that, drybrush a redder brown. I use Vallejo 'Parasite Brown'. Try and keep the base brown around the edges, and just highlight with this other brown. Drybrushing over a drybrushing should keep some of the silver, and base brown in spots. And it's always easy enough to drybrush until it looks right. It's a fairly forgiving technique when your goal is to dirty something up.
And if you want to just rust edges, but still have a dirtier metal over all, you can get that brush really dry and go over the metallics with either brown. It'll yellow it up a bit, and not make it look rusted per se, but old and rustable at any moment.
