Lately I've been testing paints and trying to figure out which air paints I like best. I've tried a good bit but I think I've found the winner. Iwata Com Art paints. They don't have to be thinned at all, they always seem to be consistent and the best part is they don't clump AT ALL. Previously I was using Valejo Air but it never seems to be consistent and clumps up a lot. I'll be spraying for about 5 to 10 mins and I'll have to start cleaning the needle or working the trigger to break it loose. It might not seem like a big deal but it's a pain when you're working on a detailed fade and it slowly sprays less and less then BLAM! a ton of paint. Very irritating, so I think I've found my paints and I'm happy to say they are pretty damn nice. The bottles even have a pea in them to help when shaking them plus they also come in larger bottles. I've just ordered a pretty big paint order from Dick Blick and should be here soon!

Been Busy...

With Life not painting unfortunately haha ..  but I got a few things knocked out

The ML dude is done and on the shelf ..

The Chappy is almost done, still working on the JP and I'm going to do a little more fine detailing but otherwise he's done. Thankfully I've had him for awhile so he's pimping metal and not the not so "fine" cast. I added the Icon thing to JP as I thought it looked very Chappy-Esch ...

The Librian is coming along but I wasn't in the best of moods when I was finishing him off building wise and I think that showed as I missed some clean up and some glue that had gotten on the power cables 8( ..  a lot of work to get all gummed up at the end ... oh well ..  I'll probably be getting some GK bits to make another ..  the pics are a little dark for some reason ..

And finally I've been working on a LR and my Airbrush shading with just the brush. Not counting the Primer this is just 3 reds blended with the AB ..

More Scattered work..

It was another week of scattered work on multi projects. I finished building a few minis and then sprayed them. While out there I was playing around with my God Hammer LR and was seeing how it would look layering with the AB.. it came out looking surprisingly well. I need to add one more level of red to make it pop a bit more and then I'm going to go back and add some shadows. I also started to build the Revenant which has been a long time come. There is a lot into building that thing I'm telling you, he's pinned to the base and pretty sturdy so far. I'm going to spray and finished his legs before attaching the guards and what not. Also a little painting here and there..  worked on getting some winged JPs closer to finished.
