I recently purchased the typhus corrosion and ryza rust paints to give my tanks and sentinels some flavor. The only problem is I don't know the best way to apply them. If you guys know any tips or tricks to do it or if you know where i can find a good tutorial on how to use them that would be great. Otherwise, I'm going to apply them to my face and start headbutting models until something happens. Thanks
I found the GW video was pretty good for the basic idea. there is one for corrosion too. Then if you find that the ryza layer is too bold work around the edges of the patch with some more corrosion and use a watered down black or brown wash over the area/model.

Apply the Typhus Corrosion like you would a wash to the area(s) you want to rust up, although I'd suggest using an old standard brush versus a new wash brush, since the chunky stuff in the mixture may tear up bristles. Let it dry thoroughly, then hit it with the Ryza Rust using dry brushing techniques as you normally would for any other dry brush application, and build up the orange until you are satisfied. These two paints make doing rust effects almost "too easy," and I'm a big fan of them. I did this the first time I ever used them, and banged out the effects in just a few hours one evening:
They really are a neat paint system, and I think one of the greatest paint products (along with Blood For The Blood God) that GW has ever made.

The skeleton was just some leftover bits from an old box o' Warhammer skeletons I had gotten years ago to nick skulls from to decorate my World Eaters stuff. I just bashed it together with a bit of reposing and adding extra damage, such as the amputated right arm, and then cut down the skull a bit so I could plop an empty Cadian helmet on top.
Definitely share photos of your wrecked Chimera when you get it done, please! I think you will be able to get some great results with the Corrosion/Rust combo.
