|The sad thing about rusted terrain is that (if done properly) it tends to look like a zero effort job that belies the actual effort that went into it.|
I like rust. There are a million ways to paint it and (almost) all of them are cool. Rust adds color, from deep red-brown to bright orange. You can even get away with adding some blue/green to it. It is (almost) impossible to paint unrealistic rust. You can water down some random orange or brown paint and splash random rust splotches on models (preferably on the metal). Painting rust is quite therapeutic in my book (you can't really mess it up). As there is always more to learn about rust (and I want to up my airbrush skills) I decided follow this tutorial by Kenny 'Yo Dawg' Boucher about weathering terrain. I may make light of his introductions, but his tutorials are downright amazing.
