The Catachan model on the right was just a test to see how the orange looked when airbrushed. I will probably just stick to painting it on with a brush, since I only have like 10 guys left to paint anyways.
Speaking of airbrushing, I finally pulled it out and tried it. John (Flekkzo) stopped by tonight and helped me figure the art out. After about 30 minutes of running around with my head cut off like a chicken, we got started painting. He talking me through thinning the paints and getting a technique down. I must say, having a HUGE compressor with clean, dry air is nice. Also, GW paints SUCK to spray. I couldn't get a consistent spray at all. The tip kept clogging up. Naturally I started painting the biggest tank I had too! (Which happens to be the only one the army currently has) Starting with the underside (to get some more practice where no one will see), and working my way around, I got most of it painted. Still needs one more coat before I can move on to painting other colors. Time to show off!
