I'm going to try to paint the warband below and I'm trying to figure out various ways to achieve a rusted armour scheme. Right now I'm thinking of using Typhus corrosion with Ryza rust over it, but I can't decide on what colour to go below the corrosion, should it be Hashut Copper, Bronze Scoprion, Runelord Brass, perhaps even a gold or steel colour, which do you think?

The colour scheme you show here is bronze with verdigris.

Brass, then gold, then washed with green and brown washes then use the technical paint that looks like verdigris.

It is indeed, and Jacobite's minotaur project log will help you no end with this.

I'll try Scorpion Brass as the base.

The description for them, that may not translate well to the picture is.

"The Reborn are a Chaos Space Marine warband, which is noted for having heavily corroded armor and using very old, almost antiquated weaponry. The first sighting of them was reported in 795.M40."

So I thought maybe the entire armour could be corroded and rusty and that could bit it's scheme as well as a unusual texture to the armour due to the typhus corrosion and ryza rust.

The 2 Technical paints that combine for Rust are pretty good. One is actually called something Rust and is orange i believe while the other is called something Oxide and is the greednish color. These 2 would replicate that color perfectly, but as for the texture i have no clue

hmm looks rather nice, would be very cool on a Plague Marine, Dreadnought, or Terminator though

Excellent job there. Looks very much like the picture at the start of the post. But like Nordicus says, maybe drybrushing your metallic colour on parts to make it a bit more shiny.

Nice rust there, Musashi. A lot of good texture going on.

@Words_of_Truth I would definitely do more dry brushing to bring the bronze back up. As it is your verdigris color isn't bad, but it's a bit flat. And more importantly it's smooth and even, which makes no sense unless those marines have been sitting outside being rained on for years.

Google image search verdigris if you haven't already and take a look at how is develops. Oxidized bronze is dark, dull, brown/black with verdigris where water has run or collected. And brighter bronze coloring where friction has worn the oxidation away.

Good luck!
