|After these modern art master pieces I packed up and went home, there was nothing left for me to learn...|
The workshop was held in a local community center. We (the seventeen attendants) had to bring our own compressor, airbrush, a 0 and 1 brush and assorted materials. Sponsors of the workshop AK, Fallout Hobbies and Scenery Workshop provided gloss and mat coats, black and white paint, a brush for use with pin washing and even more assorted materials. To my great relief the day did not start out with a lecture on the finer points of compressor pressure. Mine is set high and I use a secondary wheel to regulate it from my pistol, but mostly I prefer rather higher pressures than the average tutorial advises (especially to blast metallics at unsuspecting models). One point of contention was the general state of cleanliness of my airbrush...
|My ultra-unclean airbrush resting in its very own Pit of Nurgle.|
|Black, white, a very thin coat of Bloody Red, more white and Light Red.|
|The Primaris Marines get a bit of a rest after their pin wash.|
|Decals added, time for a mat coat.|
|One model was finished at the end of the weekend, although I do need to add a number to his knee.|
|For comparison all these marines are painted bloody red. The ones on the left using the new technique the ones on the right sprayed with Burnt Umber, 50/50 Burnt Umber/Bloody Red, Bloody Red, Agrax wash.|
* I will.
Meanwhile back home in the Biostrip-20 tub...
|We'll be repainted in the new style.|
