It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!
Giant Bats 44040
These little guys are adorable. They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis. Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes. I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.

Harrowgate Shrine 77723
Next up is a bit of scatter terrain. This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.
What could it be? An ancient omen? The gravestone for a horrific creature? Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set. I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this. Might base it in the future.

And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!
I really like how dynamic this guy is. Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies. I painted him up like the giant bats. Don't love the paintjob, but it works. I really like how his base turned out though. The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy. I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds. Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.

So what's the story? What would you use these minis for?
Was asked by mods to start this Air Brush thread to be pinned and I'll keep it up to date with links/tutorials as we go along. Keep the chatter/off topic to a minimum please.
Feel free to add links/websites/tutorials/videos/books/articles in this thread and I'll compile them here in the first thread post (just no commerce links per Forum rules).
Here we go!

Painting Miniatures From A to Z: Masterclass Volume 1, By: Angel Giraldez (linked image)
This book provides pictures of step by step of Airbrush and brush painting. Not as through as some other airbrush books, but still good.
I am thinking of getting an airbrush but am uncertain where it could be used. Specifically, if the airbrush is used at my painting desk in the house would it create a must of paint that could get on the floor or on furniture in the room? I only plan to spray acrylic paints at relatively low pressure so I don't think fumes will be a significant issue but wondered if a hood would be necessary to filter out paint "mist" if I spray paint in the house.
