Welcome to Librarium Online!
I assume some of you out there have seen the most excellent collection of Tau done by Bruno Rizzo. It first showed up in a WD, but for those who haven't yet, you can view his stuff here (Clicky!).
What I want to know is, how does he do the weathering? The "chips" I think I can figure out, but those rusty drips are fantastic, as are the black scorch marks. If you were to recreate this, how would you do it? I'm thinking of doing this with my marines, as I have a lot of Sternguard to do.
Oh my lord, that is amazing! The only way I could think of doing the drips is with ink washes of some sort. But even then it would require great skill to do that with it!
Wow that battle damage is insanely good. I'd have less than no idea how to do that but I'm sure it was time consuming. Any way you can get in touch with the guy?

I would mix Brown Ink with Blazing Orange and just paint it on as he did. Looks like he blends. Doesn't look that complicated really. Looks awesome though.
Honestly, it just looks like a little bit of sienna and some light bodied medium. Did he say/claim it was all done with acrylics? Pick up a couple oil colors sometime and try it, you will be shocked
I don't know what exactly he did but usually to get the scratched paint you can do somthing like this...
paint irregular blotch on figure in either a metallic or brown color.
Lightly rim one side with black or darker brown
Rim the other side with white
The thinner the lines of color the lighter the paint scratch will look. The thicker the lining the deeper the scratch will look.
The rust streaks can probably be achieved by pulling down brown and orange ink or glaze or even watered down paints carefully in the areas you want...
While the overall technique of scratched paint is straight forward - deploying the technique successfully is a much greater challenge...
