Seb's Skaven Painting Tutorial

A Painting Tutorial by: Sebastiaan B, a true devotee of the council of thirteen and clan Pestilens!
Welcome to the paint-your-furry-friend tutorial! Your basic clanrat. You probably have dozens of them sitting in front of you, all eager to be painted, so the object of this tutorial is to give you an idea how you could make them look good without spending hours on one miniature.
All my regular models such as rat ogres and plague monks essentially follow the same steps. Ready? Here goes!

Painting Rust Effects by:Blackbard

Painting Rust Effects

I have been asked several times now on how I paint rust onto my models. I thought it would be a better idea to not only show and explain how I do it, but what has inspired me on my travels across the great land known as Internet.
To start with, I originally used very little rust effects in my painting. I then got my hands on a great paint called Smoke. I used this on everything I could get my hands on, and still do to this day! But the one thing it did for me was to make me want to try and “dirty” my models.

Oh, it’s fine to have something dirty. But try explaining why you are carting something rusty or covered in mud, into the house to your wife! It doesn’t go over so great. But painting it on will work, it’s just so damn hard to make it look realistic!
