I'm sure we've all had the odd painting disaster, created a trio of super heavies for my 15mm sci-fi some years ago, and then slowly got around to painted them. The second one I decided to try a 3-colour checker board urban camo using the post-it note masking trick and rattlecans. Needless to say that it didn't go well and the result were hidden at the back of the cupboard. Move on a number of years, I finally get an airbrush, and decided to give it a fresh base coat. I then decided that in the name of practice I'd have a first go at a free hand camo pattern – bit limited since I've only got 4 colours total. At a distance it looks okay – up close the sputtering from the cheap airbrush is apparent. Scale is provided by the 1:76 M113 proxying as a Razorback

Not my forte but don't think it looks bad.

That close huh?

Washes and drybrushing can hide many airbrush sins, keep going and she'll be right.

I freely admit to being overly heavy handed with the ink and, your right McWong, in this case it actually helped!

[edit] I've just noticed, how did this cross post itself to Horror and VSF?
