Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well, I got the idea for the model in the conversion of the week thread, and I thought it was great so I decided to make one myself. A skeleton leaping off a grave stone. What do you think? I know the rust on the sword looks pretty bad... Any tips on how to do that well? I don't really know how to do rust.
I get good results making rust by giving the metal brown and orange washes, really diluted. I love oyur model btw. The Weapon is so big! lol
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

You can "rescue" the rusted areas by lightly and carefully stippling or drybrushing over them in the base colour of the sword again, so that it looks like the rust has eaten away parts of the blade, but the surface where the sword comes into contact with things is still shiny (as it should be - maybe his champion cut open a troll, and the acid etched into his blade?)
Then you can wash the whole weapon with a light wash of borwn and black ink to get that dirty film effect.

I think it looks sweet. Great idea!
That's a great conversion! Kudos to you!

Hey that's a brilliant conversion, good job!
There were heaps of articles in white dwarf around the time ogre kingdoms came out (issue 300 or so in Aust.) about how to paint rust so if you have any of those then check them out. Otherwise maybe have a look through the 40k section of the gamesworkshop website for ideas of rust on necrons.
thats good, its made the skele look dynamic, and swift, something skeletons arnt really ment to do, but in a battle, as a lone skeleton makse a small leap off a gavestone, that fleeting moment of movement in the air is captured quite well, cudos and rep to you!

Cheers for the comments. And thanks for ideas on the rust, I will mess around with it and try a few things. I may just end up painting it dark silver than giving a few brown washes to make it look old and weathered rather than trying for patches of rust.
