Here’s the second part of our in-depth review of the new Badger Xtreme Patriot 105 airbrush! This review features a complete comparison of the Xtreme against the standard Patriot 105, using it with varying air pressures and paint thicknesses, plus a report after using the Xtreme Patriot 105 on a model.
If you’re in the UK, you can order the Xtreme Patriot 105 from www.barwellbodyworks-shop.com!
Here it is! The new Badger Xtreme Patriot 105! This is a first look at this new airbrush from Badger, in the next video we’ll compare its performance to the ‘old’ Patriot 105 and see what it’s like! Many many thanks to Ken from Badger for this review sample!
Here’s where I’m at painting my first Dropzone Commander starter army!
This is the UCM half of the Dropzone Commander starter set, with 3 colors of camouflage on it. I might add a very thin line of black but I’ll see how the models look after a wash of black to bring out the details.
In the process of painting up my Dark Eldar vehicles and infantry for last week’s huge Apocalypse game at Warhammer World, I came across a conundrum that hits every fantasy & sci-fi wargamer in the gut: what color do I pick for my army? For some players, this choice is
Finally getting some more paint on my bigger bugs! Shown are 3 Tervigon/Tyrannofexes, a Hive Tyrant, a Flying Hive Tyrant, 3 Biovores and 2 Zoanthropes I made some progress on last night. These were primed zenithally, highlighted with white primer, then the fleshy areas were airbrushed with Minitaire Ancient Bone. Last night while watching 3 episodes of Elementary I mixed some Ghost Tint (5 parts Oil Discharge to 4 parts Green) and brushed it on the hard carapace/blade/claw areas. have to finish off the Tervigons and then I’ll start touching up the spikes on the Tervigons with yellow Ghost Tint or maybe just green (or maybe green for the smaller spikes and yellow for the larger?), then magenta Ghost Tint on the tongues, vents and joints to match the first batch of Termagants I did. That should tidy them up nicely and once they’re mounted on the space ship bases I’m working on (the biggest bases will be custom-made for every model, I think, but I’m not sure yet) I’ll see what I should do about highlighting the carapace and blade bits – I don’t generally go for the cartoony extreme edge-highlighted GW look but it looks pretty good on Tyranids, I think. In addition to these, I have a Mawloc, a couple of Carnifexes, another Hive Tyrant and 12 Warriors to do.
60 Termangants, just primed, based and painted this evening!
From front to rear:
10 with Fleshborers (to count for Termagants spawned during a battle)
29 with Spinefists
21 with Devourers (weapon of choice, the Spinefist-carrying ones are to differentiate between squads on the battlefield)
