I had started to paint the basecoat of my Grey Knights Land Raider using a normal brush. I decided that I would try using Citadel’s spray gun to base coat the rest of the Land Raider. However due to thinning the paint too much I didn’t get the result I hoped for. As you can see it didn’t work out too well.
From this angle it looks better, but’s that only because this was the area I had originally done part of the basecoat of by brush.
You can see in this close-up how the thinned paint ran from the flat surface.
Think it’s time to get a proper airbrush with a proper compressor. However give the GW Spray Gun its due, it got me thinking about airbrushing over just brush painting.
Though this is a Grey Knights Land Raider, I decided early on with this force that the majority of the armoured vehicles would be a sandy desert colour. I used Citadel Foundation Paint, Tausept Ochre as the basecoat.
