Rust by Me on My New Battl-I-mean-Gun Wagon. Done in 3 hours (or 15 minutes hairdrayer). Need opinions. And hints. And attention HAR HAR HAR!

Reciple:
Three washes of brown. Done!
First of dark (but not too dark!) brown , second normal and third with little orange flavor. (pic show only one colour. I'm laaazy!)
They should be transparent:

*Note that I started with GREY and textured (wall paint :lol ) background (anti-shine scratched old metal) and "washes" are made from wall paint pigments and wather (no dish liquid)

Cool looking rust effect! What do you do for application? Do you just use a brush?

Thanks for err "thredomancy" (nah, just joking, I just lost any hope for this tread....) and feedback guys. Bigmek Grotgitz Irontoof @ I use small brush (I guess 0 in GW scale) but bigger (up to size of little space ship :)) would also do the job - it depends on scale of whole rust and Your skill. Actually big brush may give "funny" (and faster) effects. I also discover sfuff called "thinner" (Yep, I'm dumb), I wonder if it would work better than water....

Nice effect but I'd say it's more a type of waterstain effect, rather than true rust. That's not to say it's bad or ineffective, quite the opposite actually. It looks especially realistic on horizontal surfaces, where you'd expect water to collect...

This reminds Me that You should put rusted surface horizontal (flat up) so washes would "stay" in place, not float down.

and water stain... I based on pics from Google, especially this one (pretty badass rust IMO).

I'm pretty sure that more layers and/or more colours (up to "canary yellow") would make whole effect better.
That was my first try....

Ok, next stop: Burna head (aka Gasmask aka MAN Mek/Boss/Kustom MADed Nob Head) You will need: Tooth pick (or sculpting tool) GS (or Grey Stuff in My case) Boy Head (I take one in helmet, however "bald" is good too) M4 Nut (I used M5 because It will be MA Boss/Mek head) Glue Attached File  Step_1.jpg   43.73KB   121 downloads Easy? Easy... Attached File  Step_2.jpg   32.76KB   91 downloads Start with one in center, then make rest and correct center if needed Attached File  Step_3.jpg   33.13KB   104 downloads This little "blobs" are..blobs. With holes. Note that I don't cover nose. Why? Step 4: Attached File  Step_4.jpg   38.12KB   99 downloads Use cutted in half tooth pick to make it flat (but bended) Attached File  Step_5.jpg   37.24KB   93 downloads Take small roll of GS and start from bottom (just like arrows show). Use halved toothpick to make round interior of "edge" And little trailer/comparision to Ghazz upper body: Attached File  teaser.jpg   59.93KB   107 downloads Promised - done! For blackblade68 and "He (who) make nice conversion of 2'ed Boyz to Kommies" Dude [Forgot name, sorry*] * do not apply to "He (who) make nice conversion of 2'ed Boyz to Kommies" Dude. :lol :lol :lol I'm Mad....

That's quite well done for the gas mask face. However, i have a question: How did you make the tubing for the side of the head? You know.. for some reason.. this reminds me a bit of Fallout. Great, now i want to make Fallout-style Mega Armoured Nobs. GEE, THANKS MADDAMEK. Making me want to do even more work.. :sowhat *grumble grumble*

I'm Mad....

I'd say so. At first I didn't scroll down far enough to see the entire gas mask build all at once, just the first shot of the nuts their chins ;) & was very worried about how the rest would turn out. But I gotta say thats a very quick & easy way to go about it. It fits the Ghazz body quite nicely :thumbs

How did you make the tubing for the side of the head?

I made it from metal wire and soft cable (from old PC Mouse, it have 5 thin inside thick one) wrapped around.

It fits the Ghazz body quite nicely :thumbs

Not quite, iron gob is too small for it... Good that I don't want to use it, Boss would be too "Ghazzy"

I guess next thing would be "How da hell I can make Lootaz/Stormboyz/Tankies/Shootaz from AoBR Boyz?". It was discussed earlier but someone pop up with question from time to time.....

This should totally be in the 101 section. Anyone know how to get a hold of someone who can do this?

I don't have any nuts. (HAhahaha) At least that would fit a regular boyz head. I have one that will fit a nob head but that's it. Did you get those at your local hardware shop? If I get an M3, M2, M1 would that be smaller than an M4?

Yep, M1/2/3 are smaller. Oh, and I made mistake about side of nuts. Its M4 / M5 for Boss (fixed). How ever if You can get smaller nuts here are two variants: Attached File  mask.JPG   37.47KB   26 downloads First one have 2 of them. Glue them to "pointy" edges of helmet. Second do not involve any nuts at all, at least on head. You can make little device on back or shoulder pad of dude and connect it to "elephant". Start with gluing tube. If You made wire like Me (from wire and "soft" cable) You can drill little hole in his mouth and insert it there.

I was thinking about the two nuts. I'll try to find some. I do like the one-ie. But I'll try the two-ie and tell you how that goes. Now...what about making Gobs? :D

all this talk about having 2 nuts and having no nuts is absolutely slaughtering the 13 year-old personality I have trapped in my 28 year old body. However, it's a good conversion. I might be looting this for some of my burna boyz later on.
