Hey guys, this is my introduction post, as i've joined the minds behind the scenes. My handle is Skrall, i'm something of an ork addict... in fact at current i have some in the region of 3000 points of orks... and its just the tip of my project iceberg. In the next 3 months i'll be putting up tutorials for modelling as well as reviews of new products (ogre kingdoms mainly, which i suspect isn't going to be the greatest source of interest for this group but who knows).
So first here is one of the 3-4 tutorials on weathering i'm doing. This is salt resist rusting.

Next up, wash them in warm water and use either a stiff paint brush or old toothbrush to make sure you get shift of all that salt. once you do, it should look like this;
This technique can only be used by using an airbrush, or a spray can (i've done it in the past with red spray for my word bearers)
