Just like my last NEW army, the Blood Angels, I stubbornly refused to quit the force or even modify it until I got the 'core' of the army painted. And my Orks took a bit longer than I expected (hey, school and family and various other responsibilities tend to be higher on the 'to-do' list!). But I was able to get them done in very little time following this method and the glory of rust!
I'll show you the easy step by step on my Warboss below. Please remember that my photography equipment changed (and isn't so good yet) and the rest of the model hasn't been painted yet. Without further ado, let's go!
|1, Overbrush model with Warplock Bronze (or Tin Bitz, or whatever rusty color (not texture) you may have). Be sloppy.|
|Just admiring my conversion... I LOVE this model!|
|2. Heavily Drybrush model with Leadbelcher (or any silver color, really).|
|3. Stipple Troll-slayer Orange using your worst brush. Be sure to let the orange paint dry up a bit, as even base colors are runny for orange...|
|4. Stipple Rhinox Hide using the same brush (your worst one). DO NOT CARE where the color goes. Rust is chaotic and you not liking it will prove that you're doing it correctly.|
|5. Heavily wash model with Agrax Earthshade (or Devlan Mud, or Armor Wash, or whatever). It will 'fade' the colors together and bring detail back out. Notice the the Deff Dread? that's withe less brown and even more wash!|
