I do my rust using the Layering technique.
Scorched Brown->Dark Flesh->Terracotta->Flesh Wash
I have never tried it, but I think that look could be acheived by mixing some super-fine sand with a 2:1 mix of Scorched brown:Blazing orange. It is the texture that makes it really look like rust.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. - Douglas Adams
I often use brown washes over metalics to make things look rusty. I find the ink leaves the metal looking metal but puts some brown tint in there which makes it look rusty. I think when looking at the rust there you said it looks like felt. I think the person who painted it has given it a coat of matt varnish after painting it. The matt varnish helps to make it look like rust as it makes it less reflective and clean compared to rest of the metal areas.
I don't think that's supposed to be rust.... mmmmm Nurgle
There might just actually be a dabbling of extremely find flock on there.
This product is supposed to be really great stuff... Haven't tried it myself, but I've seen some examples and it does look awesome.
How I do rust? As GW does...
Dark Flesh drybrush --> Staple Blazing Orange --> drybrush Chaos Black
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
This is textured, it might be crushed chaulk sprinkled over pva and then painted, or it might be ther other way around. Whatever it is, it looks finer grade than sand.
This definitely looks like a rust patina - probably something as Wraith suggested or another brand. I have used Modern Options Rust patina in the past to really good effect. Works great on larger things such as dreadnoughts and scenery - not quite so believable on smaller areas...

I'ld guess that it's textured too but it could have been done by the stippling king, whoever that is.
Up, up and away!
