Flames of War
I'm just starting out in FoW and I have a few questions and need some advice.|
Assault confuses me!!
I built a bunch of Shermans over the weekend and primed them with GW Chaos Black primer and then tried to airbrush them, but was very disappointed...
First off, my airbrush experiences is slightly more than NONE!
I have a Badger single action airbrush running off canned air.
I was using Tamiya acrylic thinned with Windex
Problem #1 - I over thinned the paint
Problem #2 - I it looks like I got dust on the primer or in the first layer of base coat
I stripped the models using a concentrated Simple Green-like degreaser a friend gets from work, but I think either the Windex or degreaser "etched" the surface on some of the resin pieces.
I re-primed things this morning, but I'm afraid to retry the airbrush...
Does anyone have any advice for a mediocre 40K painter?
For Germans, I have a Panzergrenadier platoon with half-tracks and staff cars, , a pair of cannons, a few (4?) Stug G's and a King Tiger.
For Americans, I have 8 Shermans, a Lee, a halftrack, a howitzer squad, a rifle company in box and a pair of jeeps with trailers.
I'd like to start playing using the missions in the Open Fire set and a "Kelly's Heros" mission I found online that pits 5 Shermans against a King Tiger in a village...
Does anyone have any other baby step missions they could suggest??
