Plasticard or similar material, punched out into tiny circles the size of rivets.  It's the easiest way I've seen so far.
It's the throwing phase now.

i was on the receiving end on occasion

I just ordered some.  I realized I needed a ton of them for the plaguetower.

Another option for larger rivets is to use common/straight pins.  Cut the head off the pin and use that as a rivet.  I've used this technique on a few models and it looks pretty good.  You can get 500 for 2-3 dollars.
