    Hey, nice job on that Eternity Warden!
    First I was a bit sceptical since the limbs looked a bit too big for the body, but it turned out great! :)

    Bogre made me laugh, cool idea! :D

    That boger bat is really cool! Look like a Chinese or Mongolian version of a vampire bat... Dracula Khan!:cool::vamp:

    Also great documentary about the development of a saurus tadpole... guess that's the first insight into a spawning pool we got... didn't know saurus tadpoles were called djins though;)... that eternity warden looks great!

    The gradients that can be done using an airbrush are just so nice.
    ...I have to finally start properly using mine...

    If you have time, do you mind talking about what airbrush you bought? Some of the cost invovled and how you preped for the new paiting method? I've been wanting to buy one for so long.

    Thank you all for the nice comments!

    Indeed it is much easier to do the gradients with the airbrush and im loving it ! :D


    Well, i got myself a Evolution Silverline 2 in 1 airbrush with gravity feed, they guys at the company i work for use it aswell and im really pleased with it so far! Since we are all on the hobby and painting , sometimes we just stay in the company after work and use the compressor there so the cost was a bit reduced!

    It costed arround 160€ if im not mistaken, plus some more odds and ends like paints and cables and so on, i went on youtube and watched a ton of videos on starting to use an airbrush to learn how to clean it and how to start painting miniatures , and it really helped!

    I did some more work on the ripter and i'm really enjoying the result, hope you do too! , ill probably leave it as is and work on the other 8 i got still to paint , and move from there to the riders after!

    Here's the finished ripter itself

    37406421_10156457283833744_236499719864451072_n.jpg 37580863_10156457279358744_4882155510809231360_n (1).jpg

    Overall im quite pleased with the end result and how the body stands out of the wings color wich adds in more contrast and gives the gradient on the wings opportunity to "shine" through.

    the claws actualy are not that white but the lighting wasnt great so sorry about that! (they actualy have shading and highlights! xD )

    Have a great weekend everyone ! and as allways make sure to comment on what you think! i love hearing the oppinions and constructive critiques!

    Nice work on that Ripper!
    I also have a H&S airbrush (the Infinity CR plus 2in1) and so far I am pretty happy with it. I admit I havent used it a lot though.
    My buddy has the same one you have and he is also quite happy with it.

    My advice don't skimp on the compressor, you can start with a cheap airbrush to get the feel use it for priming etc until your used to it, dual action is what you want (most are)

    Don't go for a ultra detail model at first as they take some mastering (watch youtube vids) and are unforgiving, I use a 1/2 decent one atm.
