    Also an airbrush seems like a useful tool... seeing how some people here drop pictures of finished minis like @NIGHTBRINGER is dropping memes... ;)

    It's amazing to see just how industrious and diligent some of our painters are!

    Patterns are easy with an Airbrush for instance what you could do is paint a pattern on the Bassi shell in dark brown then spray the full shell in red lacquer and you would end up with the pattern showing through, the technique was used to do this.

    ...I have an airbrush I picked up, It's quite used...
    and haven't really tried it with paint yet for fear of getting it clogged with my crappy paint. :/

    Try and get the same medium for your paint too... Vallejo medium for vallejo paints, same with cleaner. Seem to get the best results that way but technically any medium should do to thin it with. Don't thin with water, you'll live to regret it.

    Also if you clog it up, it's not a massive job to clean it... Just takes balls to ram a needle down it backwards!
