And so it begins...

Guess what arrived in the mail today?

This dude is massive!
This dude is also massive!
The next stage in my model art is about to begin.  The compressor is set to be delivered tomorrow via UPS.  The airbrush should arrive tomorrow as well or at latest, the day after.  I am going to start off on some mecha for Dust Warfare and then work up to tackling these huge bastids.  I am very much looking forward to getting started on these monstrosities.

Airbrush-y goodness

So I finally broke down and picked up an airbrush of my very own.  After watching some tutorials and vids by Schnauzerface on YouTube I can't help but feel this is the direction I need to head in.  I had the opportunity to speak with the local distributor for the Harder & Steenbeck line of airbrushes at a local convention about a year ago and I have to say these machines are amazing.  Not to mention his shop is about 45 mins away so in a pinch I can get it fixed post-haste.  It also follows my belief of buying quality; instead of replacing the cheapest thing I can find every 6 months.  I found a deal on a really good compressor on the cheap so it seems like everything is falling into place.  I ordered the Cygnar Stormwall colossal and the Trollblood Mountain King colossal for WarmaHordes.  I also have some Dust Warfare tanks to do on commission so the idea is to get the spray area set up, practice a bit on some of my models, and then start slinging some serious paint.  I am very excited to see what I can create using this new airbrush.  Wish me luck!
