So I decided I'm going to take a week or two off of gaming, and work on my army looks. For starters I have two drop pods, two land raiders, and a growing number of Rhinos that need to be painted. Once I get them all primed, I'm going to start painting them. Painting tanks is completely different from painting Monstrous creatures like I did with my tyranids, and I'll be honest, I'm struggling. So I'm cutting corners. I'm thinking of using an Airbrush.
So Sandwyrm covered his airbrush in a response to an email, back in the beginning of the year. But I've never used an airbrush before, and I ain't one of those city slickers with the compressors. I'm just a simple boy with some extra cash. So I went to the hobby store, bought a cheap airbrush set, and a can of propellant.
My main concern, is that instead of looking like I used one of these;
I am assuming I use my normal paints, just mix it in the little bottle thingy-ma-bob. I'll definitely need to test this before pointing at my models, but my main concern is...since its a can...how to I make it stop? It looks like its an all or nothing method. If it turns out well enough, I might invest in an actual compressor, but that is down the line.
Any tips for the first timer? Is she going to cry afterwords or am I? Do it out-doors or in a garage?
