Confluence Crusade: To airbrush or not to airbrush

I have done some more work on my Black Templar army.  Finished airbrushing the weapons for the predators and finished the next highlight layer on the tabards for the 6 BT initiates.  I have to mask up the body of the predators to airbrush the tank itself. I also have a few teminators I need to get done.

The other issue is I have a mess of pauldrons taped to my priming box.  I can attach them to my guys then go through and layer the paint on it to get the color I want.  I can also break out the airbrush and add a base of yellow then add the yellow I have been using for the cloth to the pauldrons.  Part of me thinks that this time saving method will pay off in the end.  The other part of me thinks this is a short cut that won't buy me much.  I have to do a layer of white and then put the yellow.  The yellow is lighter then I want and will require me using a brush to get the proper yellow (mainly because I suck at thinning paint). Thoughts?


  1. Airbrush all the way. I think it makes the lighter colors so much easier and come out looking much cleaner than trying to layer yellows and whites.

  2. Yeah...I think that is the way I will go. It's faster and does leave a better look. Thanks.
