I picked up an airbrush kit on sale back in November. It came with two brushes, a compressor, and some other stuff.
Here is a picture:
The brush that I have been using mostly so far is the Badger Patriot 105. I say mostly because I have sprayed paint through it more than once, lol. I started with the bottom fed one (the 350) for one sitting of like 30 minutes, then tried another sitting with the 105 for like 30 minutes.
I have since used the 105 for something like three sittings of 30-60 minutes. My total airbrush experience is something like 2.5 hours plus another 1.5 hours of cleaning and practice assembly.
I have primarily just tried primers. The latest attempt has been applying Vallejo Surface Primer (black) to some of the graveyard set, namely the crypt and the fencing.
Here are those results (minus a rogue golem arm that missed being airbrushed until I cleaned up and was later brushed with the same color in order to prevent having to clean the airbrush for one piece):
I am thinking that I might try and use my Dwarven Forge paints to make this match the Dungeon terrain I have, but am not sure yet...and if I do go that route, would it be better to go with my typical dry rush route or should I be trying to apply colors on top of this with the airbrush? Or is there a different approach that I should be taking?
I started painting these in 2007! I had received two sets on clearance from a gaming website.
I picked them up again briefly in 2011.
I had just purchased a bunch of Vallejo Game Colors.
I recently picked them up again to get them off the shelf of shame that they seemed to be permanent fixtures of.
Sadly, the VGC Paints were not able to salvage. One of them was more done than the others, so he looks a little different.

I finished them off quickly with Reaper paints.
This was the first time I primed minis white, then built up layers of very thinned basecoats.
It made these guys much brighter.
Sorry some of the pics are out of focus.
I am thinking to do the next set more black/red or more of a realistic lizard scheme.
Just a quick paint job I did a few months back.
I am still trying to learn True Metallic Metal technique.
Based on the pictures, I still have learning left to do.
There are some dilute black, blue, brown, and flesh colored washes in there.
His close up of his face reminds me of Ultron.
He is set to be a construct for our Reign of Winter Pathfinder campaign.
Enjoy. C&C Welcome, as well as any advice or recipes for TMM would be appreciated.
