Hi to everyone!

At this moment I'm painting the shoulder pads of this world eaters, I've painted them using an airbrush.

The process to paint them is the following:

I've undercoated with chaos black all de shoulder pads, then I've used a Vallejo Model Air Dark Blue for the first layer with airbrush.
The advantage using an airbrush is that you only have to do two step for a great highlighting effect on the figure. I've only added a little bit of white to blue directly in the airbrush mixture jar and then you can have a perfect blur between layers. I repeated the adding white step on the mixture 3 more times to have more bright light at the end. The blur over the blue layers is perfect you can't see any abrupt colour jump between blues.

I can't wait to see those over an Astartes shoulder, I think that the highlight effect is almost good.

I want to show to all of you my airbrush (sorry about the picture):

It's a Ventus 0.25 Titan model, it has a 0,25 mm output painting stream. Here you are the URL (example url, if you are interested on it you can find some places cheaper than that): http://www.aerografia.com.es/tienda/product_info.php?products_id=571&language=en

The specifications of this airbrush are the followings:

- Double Action Airbrush.
- Deposit of gravity of 9 ml.
- Needle and nozzle of 0.25 mm.
- Air flow regulator.
- Regulatory needle path.

And this is my air-compressor:

I can't say what model it is at this time, but I will post it. The only things that I can say are that it has an air flow regulator and it isn't noisy.

That's all now, this afternoon I'll post the pictures of ended bases.

See you soon!
