i have the Razorback and Leman Russ 'exterminater' built but unpainted and was wondering how to do fuel stains and fuel leaks on gas tanks and caps.
You might want to take the topic to painting, I haven't tried but camo green and goblin green drybrush might work for you.

oops sorry uum if a mod reads this please move it to the right fourm. yeah that might work.
Use a drop of ink the right color for your stain. Fuels and oils tend to leave colors from reddish brown to black. Put the drop at the source of the leak. Use a cloth to wipe the stain in the direction it would travel. Downward for most fuel leaks on vehicles. Leaks on airplanes often streak toward the rear. The leak should fade as it gets further from the source. Wipe lightly at first and gradually work the stain down, fading as it goes. To add some realism, you can use a dry, coarse bristled brush to draw out the stain and leave streaks.
You might also want to check the rust thread further down. A fuel leak would look like rust in most cases.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
but in the fluff all imperial tanks are nuclear powerded anyway!!! ergo: no liquid fuel to leak............... :blink:
umm.. the next time you see a Leman Russ tank look at the base of the turret there is a gas cap. and also there are fuel tanks and cans that are terrian and part of vehicles.
yes thankyou mr thunderclap i know exactly what there is on the model but if you read the fluff about the vehicles, (especially the forgeworld fluff) you will find that they are all descibed as being powered by cold fusion reactors. you've obviously never seen the discrepancies that arise between the background writers and the sculptors... inquisitor figures with bolters etc.................................................
Even though this is really off topic now, but in the spirit of LO.
Actually there are several diffrent engine choises for the Leman Russ, some uses plasma reactors, some cold fusion, some solid fuel and others various types of liquid fuels.
So I cant see why there any problem with giving it rust around the gas cap, and if the model is nuclear powered it needs to have its cooling water refilled now and then anyway....
brown ink would probably work, maybe brown and green ink mixed together for something a little more real and dirty
