Daz's Airbrush Learning Curve - II

Well I have been putting it off for one reason or another... but I finally had a break in the weather and a bit of a high in the motivation!

Six Rhino hulls, four Razorback turrets, one whirlwind turret and a Multimelta Dreadnought all base coated with the airbrush. Huzzah!!

Phase two to begin tomorrow - starting to finish the paint jobs. Mind will take a while as I am not quite sure on the scheme just yet.

Overall I found that for the Games Workshop Foundation paints, you need to cut it at about 1:1 or a bit over with Windex for it to flow nicely through the airbrush.

Didn't have a single blockage all day but I was running it at about 35psi.

Overall a nice WIN!


  1. the air brush is the single most important thing in my painting arsenal these days. Have fun with it!

  2. I know its pretty basic stuff at the moment, but I was pretty proud of it. When I had so much trouble just mixing the foundations last time it really put me off. Anyway, its one big learning curve isn't it. :)

  3. I love my airbrush. I couldnt paint tanks without it.

    I've even started using it on minis.

    I must admit though I tend to cut more than you are, and to use lower pressure.

    I found I had to as I wanted to get finer, closer to the subject, or the overpressure would cause spidering.

    anyway anything you want to ask me, feel free - I'll do my best.
