I want to paint a 1500 points army of CSM in a very fast -- the fastes way, because it is my 5th army and the others still need attention as well
I am an experienced painter and know about dipping, drybrushing ... So I am asking for color schemes and techniques that, combined, give good results and speed
I would prefer some white rusty color scheme but even more a painted army!
What I think:
1. coat the miniatures white
2. put some light brown and orange stripes for the rust
3. some bonecolor for horns and metal painted for bolters ans stuff
4. add brown color to shoulder pads (color scheme: white/brown)
5. Fanatic Army Painter to make it look cool from 30 cm

Might be a little bit more involved than you want.. but you could use the FW weathering powders and white spirit method..
I haven't personally done this.. but the effect of sprinkling the powder and then using white spirit to blend them together looked cool
It might give you the effect your looking for.. the rust that they show in the Modelling Master-class book looks absolutely real..

Thanks! I have sseen this as well, but I believe it is the exact opposite of what I am looking for
How do you rate my plan?
Wow, sorry to go off topic but the weathering powders look terrible. Well the first model they did looked great, the other two were disgusting.

Mixing the browns with tin bitz and blazing orange. This will give that slightly metallic feel to the area.
It looks like what you were going for.
I think it looks good.
A common trick (that I'm keen to try soon) involves mixing a wash of some sort of dark brown and GW's blazing Orange. If you have it, mixing the orange with Devlan Mud would do. Next, soak it in glaze medium, if you have it. Then, paint some gentle "stripes." Multiple coats = stronger rusty tone.
