As Sandwyrm and Farmpunk like to joke about, I play marines with the Blood angel codex. I've scratch built my entire army combining chaos and loyalist bits. Why? Because I like the greaves of old armor better, and the horns, and generally chaos looks cooler, though I don't like all the spikes. When I started my marines, I told myself I would paint them blue and silver, my two favorite colors. So this bastard child of my two dreams has been the fact that I own two Baal predators... and they are blue..sigh.
So a month or so ago I posted that I had invested in a paint air spray gun thingy. Well I had finally gotten around to using it. Lets just say it wasn't the cleanest experience I've had painting. For starters when I was thinning the paint.... seems it wasn't sealed all the way. ya, all over my hand. Second, when attached to the sprayer,... also not air tight seal, Tip #1, keep spray some what level, or it may leak out on your hand.
Once I got started, and messed with the nozzle, I got something I was happy with and managed to get two drop pods mostly covered.
What I did learn? Windex really is streak free. I was getting frustrated and cold (in my garage), so I just took a large brush and put the rest of my thinned paint on the tanks by hand. On my past rhinos, I've had to do multiple layers of watered down blue paint to make it an even flat paint job. One layer of windex thinned paint had the same result!
I'll probably soak the tip of the spray in some solvent, and try using again in the spring. For now it is too temperamental and frustrating (and cold).
