    Cheers Daston,

    I used some sponging techniques and powders, some mixed into washes and some applied straight on. It's all about many layers of dirt to get the final look.

    Good work. I think that you have a achieved and very good effect on both of these tanks with the rust, dirt on the tracks and the chipped paint. Reppy for you.

    Please tell me. On the yellow armour of the first tank how did you get the effect with the tellow paint wearing away to reveal the armour beneath. And which goes first, the yellow or the metal paint?

    Cheers Leech! ;-)

    You can follow the WIP HERE (Da ORKS is comin to getz ya!) which I hope gives you some idea of the process.

    Actual techniques (simplified as I do work with weathering powders) etc are as follows.....

    Once yellow has been added and dried (along with relevant washes) sponge on some dark brown. Once dried sponge on some boltgun metal. Thats it! The skill is knowing how to sponge on the right amount in the right places. I did a simplified tutorial HERE which goes through the basic structure with the addition of one more colour.

    I love the rust. They look like an ork tank should. By that I mean it looks like the thing either should not be able to move at all, or will blow itself up lol

    Beautiful work as usual. Rusty, dusty and dirty just like they should be.
