Ok, I have my BT Rhino all painted, and highlighted as best as my skills can..
What I know I lack, is it looking too clean, I need a good tutorial on painting up mud, and yes I have looked online, and find those either lacking, or not detailed to show the step by steps... A lot of skipping past steps that are talked about.
I also do not know how to weather the metal... Making it look like some paint has flaked or scraped off.
Any Tips on this would be great.
If your rhino is using non metal colors I simply used Devon Mud to get it muddy. Just make sure you go crazy thick on the section you want. I am sure their is more advance ways of doing it, but it looks great on my Ork Trukks.

There are truck loads of tutes around, a quick search and you'll find what you need. Quick way i suggest in det the areas you want and drybrush a few shades of brown over it, start darkers then work up.
Aso, scatches can add a lot to the less clean look. make a few sreeks using scored brown then chaos black through the center, then a really thin line of metal just above of below the black line. For every dig sctach put a few small ones around it.
Oh, and on really dirty bits try glueing some basing maretial down, put it on bit that would get splashed but are in resesses or other areas where its not likly for mud to get scaped back off. Vohhal, you have a dirty rhino.
Nothing like weathering to make my heart tick
There's quite an easy method I've used on seweral of my tanks. It's just a basic drybrush of BoltgunMetal really, but it's very important you make sure the brush is dry and that the bristles are sperated, not clogging up in bundles. Once you think it's dry enough paint the tracks underneath the tank for a while then go over the tank.
Focus on places where you suppose the paint has been most worn like at the front (from running into things like ruins and bushes) and around hatches and doors.
Since the brush is dry (use quite a sturdy brush for this by the way, not a soft one or even one that you care about) you don't have to be all to carefull about where you paint.
Once you'vev gone over the tank with BGM use really thin chaosblack to refill the flat areas. Make sure you save some of the worn places in boltgunmetal.
Finally use devlan mud all over the tank and whipe the flat areas dry using your thumb.
Now you should have a tank looking like it's been through some fighting.
I'll see if I can find some tank-threads of mine where you can see the technique being used...
