Also, one more, just to be sure: When you say "spray", I'm assuming you mean as in "from a spray can", and not airbrushing. Right?


Airbrush dude, the only spraying with a spray can I did is priming the model with Halfords Grey, which I am going to change to Tamiya fine white spray.

OK, thanks. You hadn't mentioned the priming step with the Halfords Grey, so I thought when you said
The model was first primed then Mechanicius Standard Grey from gw, then pre-shaded with ze airbrush and then re-sprayed standard Grey

I took that to mean that you "sprayed" the Mechanicus Standard Grey from a can as the "primed" step. My bad. Thanks for clearing it up! :D

What mike lacks in clarity e makes up for in enthusiasm :)

Step 1; Prime mini with tamiya fine white spray

Step 2; Solid basecoat with mechanicus standard grey with airbrush over entire mini, making sure to get into all the nooks and crannies, a couple of thinner coats is better than one heavy one.

Step 3; Preshade with airbrush your black of choice, thinned 50%

Step 4; Dust entire mini with airbrush in mechanicus standard grey, thinned 50%, at distance.

Hope this helps!

Awesome! Thanks, Gary!

Final questions (for today) :lol: :roll: :
  • Who makes tamiya fine white spray?
  • I have Vallejo white primer (for airbrush); will that do?

Cheers! :D

Tamiya makes it ;)

Any white spray should be fine, we just use that one for the studio dropzone stuff as it retains the detail perfectly.

Hello all again! I managed to get some spare time today to paint some more on the Lift Hawk that I have been working on. Got all the highlighting done on the grey.

As you can see, I used Army Painter Uniform Grey for the highlights ;) More progress coming tomorrow.

Looking good, Mr. Mee!

I often forget to do fine line highlights like that. But that model just screams out to do it, doesn't it?

(Meanwhile, Gary cracks the whip! LOL...)
