Leman Russ Resurrection – Part 4

After taking some time off for a family bereavement, I thought the best thing to get stuck into was my erstwhile Leman Russ revamp.

Today I managed to get the base layer down and made a start on blocking out the metallics.


I decided to manually apply the basecoat as Catachan Green doesn’t agree with my airbrush (well, much of this is due to my general ineptitude with all things airbrushy) and I wanted to practice applying an even flat colour over a large area.

So far so good, this won’t be a work of art but at least it’ll better match the rest of my armour.

    On the airbrush (I just started as well). What was the problem? Paint too thick? I’ve successfully jammed up my airbrush with airbrush paint before…so I feel your pain.

      For some reason I’ve always found diluting Catachan Green very tricky and I always ended up wasting more than I’d have used painting the model manually. Never had a massive problem with any other colour and since that particular paint has been superseded it’s a temporary irritant at most 🙂

        Ah ok. I was just curious. Trying to pick up any and all tips I can. I haven’t tried to work with any GW paints yet in the airbrush, just the vallejo air’s. (which somehow jammed my airbrush lol).
