Air Citadel paints are going to get the spotlight in the next little bit from GW. Warhammer Community announced a series of painting guides specifically geared toward airbrushing your minis. Here’s everything you need to know.
GW Announces First-Ever Airbrushing Paint Guide Series
GW has almost every paint color you can think of. While the biggest turn-off to GW paints is their container, which can dry out way quicker from dropper bottles… At the end of the day, their paints are solid. And while GW has only ever showcased their miniature line with hand-painted techniques from a manual brush, they’re starting something new. They’ve just announced a painting guide series on how to airbrush your models.
All the paints used in the video look to be from the Citadel Air line from GW. However, the airbrush used in the video is not for Games Workshop. That’s not to say that they won’t ever throw their own airbrush/compressor on the shelves in the future.
As for the airbrush used in the video, it looks to be the Harder & Steenbeck Evolution. We’ve done a video review on its lighter counterpart, the H&S Evolution AL, in case you were looking for something more high speed.
So Who is The New GW Airbrush Painter?
Caleb Wissenbeck, from CK Studios, is mainly a traveling airbrush teacher that holds private classes for those who want to get better at what they do! And now GW has enlisted Caleb for a new painting series.
Next week, we’ll be bringing you a bevy of new-format painting videos for painters of all levels. To compliment our Contrast and Classic painting guides, we’ll be giving you a variety of tips and tricks, covering much-requested elements like capes, power weapons, special effects and more.
If you’ve been wondering what airbrush is the best “bang for your buck” and you’re new to airbrushing in general, we’ve covered a great value in the video below. Get prepped up for the next few videos that are on the way ahead of time!
While the Evolution is a great airbrush for sure, the H&S Ultra may be one of the best out there for “starting out”. We’ve also reviewed that one as well below:
