A bit of distraction form the XVs. I bought myself an airbrush for my birthday. Got quite a long way into this hobby before ever trying one (40 years or so). I needed something to have a play with so I had a go at finishing some Spectre Minis concrete walls I've had sitting around for ages. I'm carefully not showing the ones that make it obvious I've not used an airbrush before, but where it works, it works.

Very realistic weathering! I like it!  :-* Cheers!

Thanks all for the kind comments.

Lovely  :-* :-* :-*

GM it's a Cult of Paint Infinity. Nice bit of gear and I am definitely a bit clumsy with it. Not much control yet but I can hide the worst with other techniques which I am more practiced at. Fun though, and I can see why many see it as an essential if you are doing a lot of painting.

And another batch of stuff done - the Experimental vehicles are now finished. I have deliberately gone for a very battered and jury-rigged look and I think the end result works quite well. The Pig Iron models do have a lovely blockiness to them.

Having a bit of fun with the kill markings.

Nice work on those barriers.

The two armoured vehicles are amazing.

Love the whole thing, but the little touches (like the 'junction box' on the side)
take it to an even higher level.

Very nice.  The details and kill markings are fantastic.
