There are many uses for an airbrush in miniature painting. Achieving a smooth base coat quickly and easily, blended highlights, shadows and colour gradients, special effects to impress your friends on the tabletop or in the display cabinet! On a practical level, you can prime and varnish your models indoors, no matter the weather outside, save money on spray cans and generally speed up army painting – which is something I’m sure will appeal to all hobbyists 😉
I get asked quite regularly about how to get started with airbrushing – what equipment is needed etc, so I decided to write an article on the subject. This may also be useful for those who want to try out some of my painting guides but do not yet have an airbrush setup.
