7th Scansin Regiment of Foot

So I've decided to break down and do something a little bit different for my 4th Platoon.  I'm going to combine bits from GW's Cadian, Victoria Miniatures, Max Mini, and Curious Constructs to create the "7th Sconscin Regiment of Foot".  Expect to see more ideas and such soon. Including my ideas or heavy weapons and photo montage for how I expect my army to look.

Th pic above is just a quick idea of how expect them to look.  The idea was better in my head, but I will definitely have to get a deeper blue, and change he red leg strip to something else.

New Air Brush

So I picked up a new airbrush a couple weeks ago and finally had the chance to try it out the other day.  I'll admit it's a beginner's class starter kit from Revell.  But I am just a beginner with one of these so I don't mind at all.  Besides it's there to help m repaint all my armour, and as you can see in the two pics below it works wonders.  It's super easy to use, and feels quite comfortable in the hand.  The trigger on top is easy to push so you don't have to squeeze hard at all.

 The clip in the front is for the paint jar so and feels quite balanced in the hand.  He only issue I had was that I originally didn't have  enough paint in the jar (I was only testing it) an I found that rotated the gun to achieve different angles I would loose the paint... 

So anyways heres the progress of tank one after 20 minutes time painting and a bit of drying time between 3 layers.  

Yes I said 3 layers.  Black, Dark Green, hairspray with salt, and the 3rd layer of lighter green. And all that with a painting time of 20 minutes!!!   Love this thing!!!

Here's my only worry..  how long does one of these cans last? 

 More news and pics as I get further along.
