Wolf Demon (77307) Hangout Airbrush Tutorial Mini

Recommended Posts

So as some of you may have read, I am going to try to do a basic airbrushing tutorial on Friday night, June 24, 2016, starting at about 2100 (9pm) EST on google hangouts.


The idea is to show folks the basics and beginnings of how to use an airbrush...


This is the mini I chose:

I started the clean up, assembly, gap filling, because folks already know how to do that stuff....


I chose it because it is large enough for people to see what is going on when it is being painted, but not so big it takes over my table, like a dragon would...


I have done a Type III Demon before, so I won't have to go to crazy figuring things out, and there are some semi advanced things I can try to show as things progress....


So Thanks for looking, and hope to see you at class!

I need to post pics of the work I did still, but...



It seems that there was enough interest for me to continue with this, so I will do some cleanup Paint work on the mini this Friday,  1July19, at 2100 hrs EST.


Will cover some masking tips that I started last time and continue painting. I will try to have all my paints pre mixed to save time on that part....


Not sure what other colors to work with yet, but....


I will use the link found in the first post in this thread.

So here are pics of what got done Friday during the Hangout Class....


The whole mini was primed with Grey Liner, mixed 2 to 1 with water / flow improver.


The Light Grey is Tamiya Neutral Grey XF53, mixed 1 to 1 with Tamiya X20A thinner.


The Brown is Scale 75 African Shadow, Mixed 1 to 2 with Scale Color Acrylic Thinner.


The places where I over sprayed onto previous areas is pretty evident, and I plan on starting the next class with fixing those and showing some masking tips / tricks.

Sorry for the Necro,

But as I am back to life and painting, and have noticed quite a few folks have recently gotten airbrushes, would there be any interest in doing this again?


I am not any kind of expert with an airbrush, but have been using one for about 8 years or so, and am willing to talk about things, and answer questions etc...


Chime in if interested!

I’m interested, but you may want to wait a little while to start this again. Reaper is working with Badger and have a new airbrush in the works.

I imagine a lot more Reaper fans will have airbrushes SOON(tm) and something like this would be a great intro.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...

      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.
