Thanks! It's not really a secret. All colours are Vallejo Game Colors. I start with Cold Grey and some highlights with Wolf Grey, just as a totally normal and unrusty weapon. The I use a Brown Wash. After this I use several diluted colours: Black, Dark Fleshtone, Scarlett Red, Bronze Fleshtone and Orange Fire, although Black and Dark Fleshtone are not always used and if so, always the least amount. Then it depends on the intensity if the effect. For a heavy rust effect like with my undead, I use the colours very wet and paint them onto the area I want them to be, and blend them while they are still wet. After that, I dry my brush and take some water away from the mini again. With this, there is a nice effect already, because the colours are mixed and blended, but still diluted enough to see the base colour through it. For a lighter effect like with these goblins, I tend to drybrush the mentioned colours, but still without any time for drying, so they mix and blend on the mini as well, but not as intense as with the wetblending. I always start with the darker colours, although the middle sections can vary. So Black and Dark Fleshtone come first, after that either Scarlett Red or Bronze Fleshtone, but the Orange Fire is always the last colour for this. With both methods, I do a little bit of highlighting/drybrushing with Wolf Grey at the end, because the rust would be rubbed away from the most outpointing edges of the metal.
Hope that helps. If something is still not clear, just ask.
The pictures from Mid-Norvember! I started experimenting a little bit with some more detailed bases for my Mid-Nor and wanted to go with mushrooms. I used greenstuff, toothpicks, but also some teeth from a hairbrush.
In December, I only finished Kamahru, but I experimented with icicles for the first time and am quite content with the result.
So here are all miniatures from 2018. 42 for Confrontation and 3 for Infinity.
I also made some pictures from every army. Enjoy!

And the first painted miniature in 2019, the guard of 1000 paces. I painted him with the original Rackham paints that have been included in the painting starter set, and although they are quite thickened through the years, I am very satisfied with them!
