Airbrush stuff continued...

If you don't know and follow Tom Schadle, over at Tom Schadle Miniatures I highly suggest you start reading his blog and following his amazing work. He's won awards and paints professionally and all the other stuff that most of us aspire towards. Anyway, look at his stuff... ^_^

I borrowed (See 'blatantly stole') his colour scheme and technique for his Infinity terrain and used it to see if I could reproduce something that kinda looked the same... Good News! What I've produced doesn't suck!
Was disturbingly easy as well. I used exactly the same method as tom did in his post here. Worked like a dream, I'm sure things will get better with more practice... 

Space Barrier.
When a regular sandbag just isn't good enough...

That marine couldn't hide behind that if his life depended on it... Wait...

And I am done! This has been so much fun, and so very easy to do... The decals were amazing and look really nice on there. Enough talk. More model!

Red makes things go faster...
Not much left to do really ^_^

Battlestar Day Two...

It's so very hot where I live right now... I've been spending time reading in the sun rather than in the Sauna that is my painting room... But I did the 80% of the grays. There is a distinct possibility of going to light with this, so I've kept it quite muted... I still like the look of it though ^_^

Still lacking something... ^_^

Battlestar start position

My airbrushing skills are still lacking, so I purchased this for practice... If you're going to paint something, paint something cool... And the Battlestar Galactica is Daaaaaaaamn cool... I'm thinking for this one I'm going for height of its power Galactica rather than battle damaged Galactica or Museum prep Galactica...

The kit is from Moebius Models. It is really nicely detailed... and the Pegasus just came out, same scale, so I'll have to get that one soon enough as well ^_^

Insert Dramatic Music here
