Well i got a new unit of black orcs and instead of painting there choppas and great weps with blood i want to do a rust style. only problem is i really dont know how to do it.
if some one could do a good step by step or even just some hints and tips that would be great. thanks
you in the US or EU or AU?
Rome wasn't built in a day, Either should good scenery.
As with the above post, I'm not sure where you are based, but going by me being in the Uk, one way of creating a rust effect is to use a weathering tool like the ones sold here: link
I've not used them myself, but I believe they give fairly good results.
There are also two links to tutorials on this forum here:
Rust with MIG Pigments
Stippling Rust Effects
Hope that helps,
You can do rust with brown ink. Paint the weapons black and drybrush them with boltgun metal and then lightly with chainmail. Then give the weapons a wash with brown ink. You can apply to washes to make it stronger. The ink will make it look brown and rusty.
well i use rust paint from testors. i paint the item in question what the color would have been. then i do a light coat of rust. this gives the effect of mild rust but you can still see the orinignal color. so if it was a helm that was steel then you paint it with a light coat of rust. you get effect of its not solid rust yet.
now to get a just starting to rust effect you just dry brush on the rust. if you want a heavy rust effect then just do a extra coat of rust or use 2 or more light coats of rust. almost all model paint companies have there brand of rust paint.
tamiya makes a rust paint but i dont know how good of a paint it is, but use some of there other paints i would say is works very well for models. now testors makes a full line of rust paint. i use the Floquil rust paint by testors. i looks good and cleans up very easy.

A method I've read about recently that I'm itching to try is to mix Citadel Blazing Orange 50/50 with brown ink and paint a thin line going straight down from any rivets. It looks like dripping water caused a rust stain.
Two methods I use are relatively good
Quick 3 step:
Drybrush with a dark metal colour (boltgun works...do light wash of black if you think its too bright)
Dab with GW Fiery Orange (or similiar bright orange colour...brighter is better)
9 step method:
Drybrush of GW Tinbitz
Lightly drybush GW Boltgun Metal
Dab with GW Scorched Brown
Layer GW Dark Flesh on top of the brown
Layer GW Fiery Orange on top of the flesh
Ink with a Dark Brown 1:2:1 black ink/brown ink/water
Lightly dab on some Fiery Orange again
Edge with GW Mithril Silver
Hope those help and sorry for the lack of photos.
I use the following quick, easy and effective method when I'm painting massed troops like orcs.
1) Heavy drybrush of Tin Bits over a black undercoat
2) Moderate drybrush of Boltgun metal
3) Wash of Badab Black (sometimes leave this step out if I want a lighter tone)
Hope this helps
