Have just got a new and shiny airbrush and compresser so have now got a way of painting a lot of yellow quickly so can at last do my fist army i have always wanted. So the first one i have got done is a vindcator.






The fluff is that they have been behind the lines for a while hense the dirt all over it.

Should have the first of the men done soon, will post as soon as, but any thoughts are more than welcome.

Very nice, I like the dirty look for vehicles. Doesn't make sense to me to see vehicles all clean and shiny.

Have just sprayed the tech marine, am going to use him as a vet. sarge in the command squad will wait until the whole squad is done then post a team pic.

Cool, thanks for that - I've never tried to paint yellow because I didn't know how to do it well.

How much did your air brush cost as well?

About £230 with a compresser, but if all you want one for is base colours then you get away with using a cheaper one the one i had before cost me £12 and ran of a can of compressed air and was fine for base coats.

Cool thanks, I've been thinking about getting one, would you recommend it and how many coats would each can give you?

Well i got a baneblade, 2 leman russ's and the vindcator all painted with one can of air. I would really recommend it, the one thing i get really bored doing is basecoats and now i could basecoat a whole army in an hour. If all you want is basecoats i would just go for a cheap one, say £10-20 but if you want to do camo it will cost you more.
