Title: Tutorial Request: Battle damage

Hai, as the title said, I need a tutorial for battle damage on red armour(but for keeping the thread alive and useful you can also post battle damage methods for other colours of armour and weathering methods for vehicles). Please help.

Hi Feytor,

these are the primary tutorials I use for my own works, I have not include NMM tutorials just basic metals.

Sukigod's crafting battle damage, great tutorial with excellent pictorial reference:
Battle damage

Ultawerke' rust weathering tutorial using MIG products. MIG specific as I use the same product but I am pretty sure the same principles will apply to other brands:
Rust/Weathering Tutorial

Hope these help with your project :)

I've forgotten to mention I need a painting tutorial. Shame on me. Thanks anyway, the rust tutorial is awesome but I can't use it to my blood angel force and Im not able to buy all required materials. :(

I find that the best way of weathering models without using powders and such is will good old Bolt gun metal.

I tend to lightly dab or tap on the raised edges where the armour would naturally be scraped by coming into contact with raised surfaces or been knocked. The trick is to make it look like the paint has flaked. I then go over this with a couple of washes of Badab black for recent damage or the the badab wash followed by brown washes for older scrapes.

An old brush is probably best for this though, just wipe off most the the paint and lightly dab it (don't push down hard just little taps) where you would normally apply the highlights then apply the washes. ;)
