That is allot of airbrushing. I really need to get my setup going again. I think I'm close to 2 years since I had paint flow through a 'brush...jeesh.

 

Is your booth, one of those folding, pop-up ones? If so, have you sprayed harsher paints like lacquers in it? How did it do?

It is, although mine has been setup for a couple years straight now, so now sure how well it would fold up anymore.
It works pretty well for acrylics (the AP Air leaves almost no smell, which is really nice).  I've used rattle cans with it a couple of times when I needed something urgently but the weather wasn't cooperating.  That smell lingers so I try to do anything like that when I'm not going to be in the room for a while.  I currently don't have mine vented outside, although I should go back and look at that since the AC install is now pretty permanent, so I could just vent beside that......
I have the 2 filters in and it seems to handle everything pretty well.  I do have a separate air scrubber that I got more for resin printing, but it does a good job taking out any lingering air brush smells as well.

Good news. One of the scale model guys I follow on youtube uses 2 of these side by side (or at least I think it, I mean you can see the common components of it) & he uses lacquers through his airbrush all the time. I mainly need to clean up the area I wanna put this in or just use it in the garage with the door open.

Well Tank War was a bust.....  my dice rolled worse than I think I've ever seen for an entire game...consistently 1 lower than the target number for attack after attack.  And if I happened to hit, I failed the damage roll.

Blah.  Frustrating after putting so much work into getting everything assembled and base coated......

Took a little break, mostly due to having a crap week on call.
But I have a 5 day weekend starting today (was supposed to be visiting my folks and going to the track, but Covid finally hit the household....) so hobbying!

Today will be all assembly, mostly Konflikt '47 since I got a bunch of units in yesterday.

But first we start with a normal Bolt Action unit of veteran grenadiers.

Last week I was talking about needing to put together a unit of veterans with all assault rifles during BA night.  Went downstairs to get a pop and noticed they had a box of metal veterans all with assault rifles, so grabbed that.

Since the heads that came included 3 with field caps, and I only use field caps to denote the NCO, I subbed in a couple of spare heads off the normal plastic sprues.

 

Then on to K47.

20220602_IMG_2987.jpg.7054ae7f48ca2d46cfc8ffad61f4b0c6.jpg

A unit of Schreckwulfen, basically werewolves, but created through "rift-tech",

I just have one arm left to put on.  I felt it needed a pin.  The guy with a separate gas mask (odd place to split a fig) will need some putty work.

 

I expect I'll do some more later (it's lunch time).  And I should get back to cleaning up all the flash on those rockets for the Stuka zu Fuss  in the background too.....

Afternoon work.  I pinned that arm on the werewolf, but didn't bother with a pic.

This is the Hauptmann Heinrich Gross pack.  It's a special unit, that goes in the higher command slot.

Consists of Gross, front right, Flount, a specialist medic, middle back, Deitner, sniper, on the left, and two SS Shocktroopers for body guards.

And then a unit of 10 Waffen-SS Shocktroopers.  100% in gas masks with IR goggles, so faces should be pretty quick on these guys......

 

Time for a break, I started getting the dropsies trying to get the SMGs on the last couple Shocktroopers.....

More assembly today.  I'm feeling pretty crappy but assembling minis is a good distraction.

 

20220603_IMG_2999.jpg.0728d369184f2ee26baa3a62428a5b2e.jpg

First up the Fallschirmjager Falcon Infantry.  These guys have advanced armor and Grav-packs, which give them flight.

And then the heavy armoured platoon officer.  One of the troopers with him can even take a Panzerfaust.  As they use the same backpacks as the regular heavies, I magnetized his the same way.

 

Currently waiting for glue to dry on a Flammspinne Light Panzermech, the flamethrower version of the light spidermech .  I'll post pics later.

Feeling pretty crappy today, but did get a unit of heavy infantry assembled over a few fairly short sessions.

20220604_IMG_3010.jpg.336600e701dbf267cabcb5b25b4e685c.jpg

As with the previous I magnetized two of them so I could swap the panzerfaust backpacks to shoe that the panzerfaust has been used.

Finished assembly of the last box of Heavy Infantry.

 

20220605_IMG_3013.jpg.ef292ff8251993e910ac876c78665b77.jpg

 

Now to assemble 3 packs of 2 light machine gunners for the Heavy Infantry.

20220605_IMG_3015.jpg.d6a6977f870d875745e65ef4a27e21fc.jpg

This will give me enough to field 4 units of Heavy Infantry with LMGs, or 3 units without.

Still feeling pretty lousy, but got the LMG Heavy Infantry assembled.

I've just got a couple more Nachtjagers left to assembly for K47 (and go back an ping the first two's wings, since once snapped off the only time I tried playing them).

I'll probably work on them this afternoon if I have the energy.

Last couple days have been a bit rough.  Apparently my crap respiratory system isn't doing a very good job of getting rid of Covid.  Slowly improving now I think, with the help of a anti-inflammatory inhaler.
Due to that my energy level has been non-existent for a couple day. A little better today, so I did manage to finish pinning the 2 units of Nachtjagers together.

That exhausts my supply of Konflikt '47 figs, so I'm looking at German Pioniers (Engineers).  An interesting box as it comes with spues of Blitzkreig German Infantry and then a couple of baggies of metal bits to make them engineers.
I need to figure out what I should be building out of the box.
