Meanwhile ...

... I bought an Airbrush - cool eh!?

This is my new double action shotgun -ehhhhmmm- airbrush thing. Nothing special, just a cheap set from ebay, about 130€. Singleaction + doubleaction + compressor with small tank.

Sadly, today was no camera at home, only bad cellphone pictures ...

This was my first Try, and due to bad pictures you cant see anything ... ha ha!

Just a try to speed up painting ... dark red base color followed by lighter two airbruch highlights from above. after wards a quick wash with thinned down VGC Sepiashade, and very few highlights by brush... (at least this pic is the worst one for today, I think)

This is my second try, those are the missing two neophytes I talked about someday (I think I did).
White Vallejo Prime by Airbrush, then dark brown VModelAir from bottom up as presahding. Then some VMA Hemp as basecolour, and two sandy highlights from above. It's quick - It's dirty - It's perfect for me!

Also I did a third mini that way, but he got a finish:

Basic difference to the neophytes: a thinned down VGC Sepiashade wash after painting metals and white on the horns. Blood is done with VGC Skin Wash and the mud is done with VGC pigments (awwwwwwwsme!!! stuff).

And in addition, this guy is a tribute to sons of taurus - who made me somehow, I think buy reading his blog, putting this bits together! (get out of my mind!!) AND dear sons, if you still read my little blog, and would like to own this little guy for your traitors, I think I would send him on a special mission over the big ocean. I have no duties for him.

 At the moment I am try to convert my brother into an TT40K nerd. The nerd thing is not the big problem, he already is one, but the Tabletop is more of it, especcially the hobby and money part. And he doesnt want to play big games (he says (for now)).
But lucky as I am, Galaxy in Flames came up with a Skirmish Fan Project:

It's beta, but I'll give it a try, after I have moved to my new flat in October (and have converted my brother - mwhahaharrr)

And last but not least if have joined the H.O.P. some days ago - just to mention.

*** EDIT ***
I think I'll replace that ugly pictures in the next days ... damn they are bad ... sorry.
